Why You Should Never Sleep with Your Makeup On
We all know that we should never fall asleep with our makeup on, right? However, have you ever thought of why you should remove your makeup before you head to bed? If you are one of those people who is too lazy to remove their makeup before sleeping, after reading this article, you will totally stop doing that. Going to sleep with your makeup on has many disadvantages, read all about it below.
1. Your skin won’t breathe.
When you go to sleep, your skin also relaxes to rejuvenate after being subjected to makeup products all day long. However, if you do not remove your makeup before you sleep, your skin will not breathe, making it look tired and not fresh.
2. Wrinkles, wrinkles, wrinkles.
Sleeping without removing your makeup will break down the natural collagen in your face, due to the exposure of free radicals in the environment, that makeup holds on. This will lead to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face.
3. Say hello to new pimples.
A very important reason of why you should never sleep without removing your makeup is that it will lead to the appearance of pimples and blackheads, and let’s face it no lady wants that.
4. No more fresh glow.
Another con of falling asleep without removing your makeup, is that you could bid farewell to that fresh glow. The makeup will prevent your skin from producing new skin cells overnight which will result in your skin looking pale and worn out.
5. Wake up with puffy eyes.
Not removing your eyeliner or mascara before your sleep could possibly lead to eye infections or puffy eyes.
6. Block your pores.
Believe it or not, not removing your makeup properly also has an effect on your skin, as bacteria can pile up on your eye lid or eye lashes, leading to white headed pimples.
7. You will look much older than you are.
Going to sleep on a regular basis without removing your makeup, can strip you of that youthful glow, making you look much older than you actually are. So always remember to remove your makeup and clean your face properly before you go to sleep.
