There is a reason we call sleep “Beauty sleep” cuz it does just that.
While we sleep, our bodies boost blood flow to the skin while you snooze, which means you wake up to a healthy glow. Skip on sleep and your complexion can look drab, ashen, or lifeless.
We know after a long night of fun and enjoyment, the last thing we want to think about is removing our makeup and more often than not we are tempted to sleep with the makeup on our faces… after all… y3b3 wu enti y3nda? Lmao!
What you need to realize is that, as you sleep, the skin renews itself. If there is makeup on it, you inhibit the whole process. Here are some effects of leaving makeup on your face overnight.
This is the most obvious and common one. We all know it cuz we have at one point or another experienced it whether because of leaving makeup on or something else. Makeup increases exposure to dirt, bacteria, and other environmental factors that can settle into your pores and skin late at night.
Yes, we all age but leaving your makeup constantly on your face every night will let you age faster than normal. Sleeping with makeup on leaves you with wrinkles. Take makeup off before bed for a brighter, more youthful complexion and a slower, visible ageing process.
3. Eye Infections
When you don’t wash your face in the night, bacteria accumulated during the day on your eyeshadow, liner, and mascara seep into your eyes, which can lead to irritation, discomfort, and potential eye infections.
4. Larger Pores
Sleeping in your makeup can lead to larger, deeper, and more clogged pores, which can result in more acne and a worsened complexion. This will block the skin’s ability to refresh and strengthen cells, as noted.
Sleeping without washing your makeup off can lead to blackheads on your face especially around the mouth and lips (yuck), which are hard to remove without some form of treatment or an appointment with a dermatologist or facialist.
Not to sound like a broken record but sis, that makeup needs to come off! Take care of your skin so that you wouldn’t be shy to go out without makeup.
