What Sleeping in Your Makeup Does to Your Skin

Have you ever come home from a long day of work or out drinking and dancing with your friends and went straight for your bed? Only to remember once you’re warm under the covers that your makeup is still on. Don’t worry we’ve all been there, but one time of no face washing can’t possibly hurt right? Well, it can. Your skin goes through its most important recovery process at night and makeup hinders this natural exfoliation from happening. Keep reading to learn why you should be removing your makeup at night.

You Risk Eye Infections

To start off with the most uncomfortable consequence… an eye infection or a stye can result if you leave your mascara on overnight. Your eyelashes are very delicate and mascara can clog the glands connected to your eyes and cause irritation.

Your Skin Will Look Older

As mentioned above, when you sleep your skin sheds dead skin cells and works to regenerate collagen, which is what makes your face youthful and bouncy. When you sleep with your makeup on, all the pollution your face endured during the day seeps into your pores and prevents your skin from repairing itself. Thus, your skin loses its firmness and causes premature aging. 

Your Skin Will Breakout

Not only does makeup cause your skin to look dull and dry, it’s also an open invitation for bacteria. So if you’ve ever woken up with a zit after sleeping with a foundation on, that's why! Makeup often also contains irritating ingredients like fragrances and oils that can cause your skin to be red and inflamed.
