LOVE washing off your makeup at night!

No matter how many times you’ve been told to wash off all your makeup before bed, sometimes you just can’t seem to make it happen. We’ve all been there before.

Let’s talk about what happens to your skin when you don’t remove your makeup before bedtime and sleep with a full face of makeup.

What to remember about leaving your makeup on:

1. pores become clogged and you could breakout

2. complexion will appear dull

3. skin will look older and feel dry

4. skin can become irritated

5. risk of eye infections

Pores become clogged

During the day, your makeup acts like a magnet holding onto pollution, oils, dirt, and dead skin. Leaving all that on your face overnight is like an open invitation for bacteria, clogged pores, breakouts, and blackheads. If large pores are a concern of yours, sleeping in makeup certainly won’t help! Dirt/makeup left in the pores will make them more noticeable and appear instantly larger.

Complexion will appear dull

Sleeping in makeup interferes with the natural exfoliation process of the skin, leaving skin rough, dull, and lackluster. That can often lead us to putting on even more makeup the next day to get that glow back with extra bronzer or contouring.

Skin will look older and feel dry

At night our skin goes through a natural recovery process to repair itself from any damage throughout the day. Not taking your makeup off will age you because makeup mixed with dirt and pollution on the skin, can hinder its ability to renew itself at night. This can cause premature aging by breaking down collagen and may begin aging faster.

Not properly removing all your makeup prevents any beneficial ingredients in your nightly routine from penetrating the skin's surface, so always make sure your makeup is thoroughly gone before you move on to the next step of any skincare routine.

Skin can become irritated

Makeup often contains ingredients that irritate the skin like dyes and perfumes. When left on the skin for long periods of time, these irritants can cause inflammation, irritation, and redness.

Risk of eye infections

Leaving your eye makeup on overnight can lead to eye infections. A stye can form from mascara clogging glands connected to your eyelashes.

Removing your makeup is very important.

Even if you're very tired, wash your face before bed. Your skin will thank you later. By establishing a proper cleansing routine, you set yourself up for a fresh and smooth canvas for your makeup.

Starting off with an oil-based cleanser such as the Dermalogica Precleanse that will dissolve and melt away any trace of makeup and a great first step to proper clean and makeup removal. Follow that up with a gentle cleanser appropriate for your skin type, and you're good to go. Don't forget to moisturize afterwards.
