Sleeping In Makeup Is Bad For You,
Unless You’re OK With Clogged Pores & Broken Eyelashes
Makeup is a wonderful, magical tool that some of us can’t live without. From making our skin look glowier to lengthening our lashes, there’s nothing makeup can’t do. The only annoying thing about it is having to take it off, especially when it comes to bedtime.
Aging is an inevitable part of life. Our skin won’t always be as youthful as it is now, being able to bounce back from the harm we put it in at times. But by not removing your makeup, especially at night, will only help speed up the aging process.
Makeup holds onto dirt, oil, and dead skin which can clog your pores resulting in zits. Waxes are used to make a lot of lip products. Leaving your lipstick on over night can lead to clogged pores around your mouth, causing blackheads.
When oil mixes with leftover makeup in your T-zone, you won’t just end up with clogged pores. You could get a bacterial infection that you won’t be able to just treat at home. Makeup around your eyes can clog little oil glands and hair follicles on your eyelids which may result in styes in your eyes
Word of advice: Never take a snooze with a face full of makeup on. Likely, it’s not the first time you’ve heard the age-old adage, but it’s important to understand why getting a wee bit lazy can have lasting effects.
“Sleep is a restorative time for the skin, and if oil glands and pores are blocked by the day’s makeup remains, the results can be disastrous,” Palm tells InStyle. “Makeup products left on the skin do not allow skin to properly shed, and the makeup, old skin cells and environmental pollutants can accumulate on your pillow.” That said, it’s crucial to lock-down a nightly face washing routine to avoid skin mishaps like clogged pores, blackheads, inflammatory acne, and flaky, red, irritated skin (ouch) that could result from wearing makeup overnight.
