5 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Sleep With Your Makeup On


The thought of washing your face at night can make you lazy and you think to yourself  "I am not even wearing a lot of makeup so how does it matter, right?" Wrong! Your all day long makeup plus the sweat and oil that naturally accumulate throughout the day and the pollution- are all standing between you and the complexion of your dreams. It might even be prematurely ageing your skin!

According to Sr. Dermatologists, Your skin is your biggest organ, and it must be tended to. As its constantly working 24 hours a day. During the day, your skin is in protection mode , keeping your complexion free from harmful rays and free radicals. At night, your skin goes into repair mode creating healthy cells, regenerating levels of collagen, and more. By sleeping in your makeup, your skin has to work way harder to get through all that makeup and dirt.

#1 You Damage Your Pores
Anyone who’s ever got their skin examined their skiunder a magnifying mirror will agree they have been told their skin is Clogged with oversized pores .  And non removal of makeup can add to this problem as it embeds itself into your pores. Makeup can actually stretch the pore and make it look bigger and by removing your makeup and cleansing your skin, you're giving those poor pores a chance to stay clean and healthy.

#3 It Can Lead To Skin Irritation
 Think about all the places you and your makeup have been today. Then imagine it hanging around all night. If that sounds like a recipe for a flare-up, it's because it is. The skin is good at tolerating a lot of things, but it can become reactive. You don’t want to leave things on longer than you have to. So makeup that might be fine for eight hours can actually create a negative reaction in your skin when left on the skin for 24 hours. And if you're already prone to sensitivity, sleeping with makeup can trigger skin issues.

#4 It Can Dry Your Skin
Your fresh morning makeup becomes a moisture-sucking machine by nighttime. Removing it gives your skin the chance to breath and revive its moisture levels. Your skin need to maintain an ideal balance of oil and water for it feel comfortable. Therefore removing makeup then cleansing , toning and moisturising will help keep the good stuff in and the bad stuff out , and restore the ratio.

Particles from the environment like car exhaust, smoke, and industrial pollution gather onto your skin throughout the day. If you don’t get them off, this chain reaction of  pre-mature aging and increased sensitivity continues right on through the night. Interestingly, makeup can actually absorb some of these particles, as can sunscreen. Even more of a reason to wash it all away before you get into bed.
