Makeup to Bed??? That's a no-no...😫
1. SKIN DULLNESS
You lose the glow..
The skin tends to repair and renew itself overnight as you sleep, creating a more vibrant appearance in the morning. Sleeping with makeup on hinders this renewal process. Even worse, makeup tends to settle into the skin’s creases and lines leading to skin that looks dull and aged.
Most makeup is oil-based, which can clog the pores and lead to pimples. But sleeping with makeup on will actually heighten your chance of a breakout. While you sleep your makeup can mix with additional built-up debris and oil from your skin’s surface – the perfect recipe for clogged pores, acne, and blackheads.
3. EYE IRRITATION
Sleeping with eye makeup (like mascara or eyeliner) can cause eye irritation, itchiness, and infection as makeup particles can rub off onto your pillow and get into your eyes. In severe instances, regularly leaving mascara on overnight can cause eyelid cysts and styes.
Leaving makeup (ironically, makeup designed for anti-aging) on while you sleep can further age your skin. This is due to unnecessary free radical exposure. During the day your skin is exposed to free radicals and other oxidative stressors which can break down collagen and cause line and wrinkle development. Sleeping with your makeup on seals these free radicals onto the surface of the skin all night long.
5. DRY SKIN
Sleeping in your makeup can dry out your skin as leftover makeup residue can crate a barrier that prevents your moisturizer from penetrating into your skin. Additionally, some makeup formulations contain ingredients that leach moisture away from the skin. Sleeping with makeup on exposes the skin to these ingredients for hours, drying out the skin.
6. EYELASH ISSUES
Sleeping with mascara on is very harmful to your eye lashes. Long-term use of mascara can result in overly dry and brittle lashes. People who consistently sleep with mascara on can end up having lashes that dramatically thin and even fall out.
Preventing the above issues is as simple as always making sure to properly remove your makeup before going to sleep. After trial-and-error, I find using makeup removers first, gets the face even cleaner during the cleansing session. Trust me, this helps a lot. Be sure to use a #makeupwipe first, to break up the makeup and debris, then cleanse the face. Facial tools also help polish and cleanse the skin as well. Just be gentle and cleanse in a circular motion for optimal results.
I would also invest in a #satinpillowcase to protect the skin you just took care of, while you sleep. This is the icing on the cake.
