The dark truth of what happens to your face when you sleep in makeup
After a late night, and a long day, the last thing we’re bothered to do is take off our makeup. As night draws in, all we want is to crawl into bed and enjoy some much-needed rest. We’re all guilty of it!
However, as tempting as it is, sleeping in our makeup shouldn’t become a regular occurrence, and here’s why…
Gross White Spots
Have you got ugly looking white spots on your face? Especially, around the eyes? This could be a result of not taking off your makeup before heading to bed.
Dry, Cracked Skin
Sleeping in a face full of makeup stops our skin from repairing itself, which leads to dull, dry looking skin. If you already suffer from this, you’re likely to make things worse by sleeping in day-old cover up (especially the areas around your eyebrows and nose).
Your Skin Absorbs Everything!
It’s easy to forget our skin’s an organ; we need to look after it, just like our hearts or kidneys. The natural oils that occur when we sleep absorb the chemicals in our makeup, which increases the likelihood of breakouts.
Has this convinced you to start taking off your makeup before bed? We’re confident you’ll be glad you made this part of your nighttime routine!
