sleeping with makeup on

Sleeping with your makeup on clogs pores which then causes breakouts, can dry out the skin and cause redness of the skin as well as sensitivity. Sleeping in makeup also speeds up the process of aging which can lead to premature wrinkles according to skin experts.

Makeup can indeed make you appear more beautiful, but if you leave it overnight or forget to remove it before bed too often, it can lead to a collagen breakdown, which can make you appear older and your skin can appear tired and unhealthy.

One night of sleeping with your makeup on is unlikely to cause harm to your skin, but doing this often will likely cause your pores to become clogged. This then results in the formation of a microcomedone, a condition which attracts the acne-causing bacteria to your pores.

The skin best renews itself while we sleep, and leaving makeup on overnight prevents skin regeneration.

    I feel that every woman should know this, after all it’s 2019 and studies are done every day on the benefits of having your skin clean during the night. I slept with makeup on a few times during college after drinking, and I’d always get breakouts in the morning. It’s an awful habit.

    Apparently even an innocent slip-up has consequences, and what’s worse is it’s usually the skin’s appearance that suffers. Vital maintenance work takes place at night and it doesn’t love a layer of makeup getting in the way. You may get a little irritation, one or two small spots and your skin may be patchy in the morning.If you often fall asleep with foundation on, dehydration, puffy eyes, dark circles and a sallow complexion will become a regular problem.

    Great reading! Sleeping with makeup is something that happens to all of us, but not necessarily yourself for the things that can happen when you sleep with makeup. Wearing your makeup to bed may seem harmless, but you’d be surprised at toll that sleeping in makeup can take on your skin. Thank you so much!
