I know sometimes we are tired from the day and rather use a makeup wipe. The truth is it won’t get the job done.
Oftentimes, makeup products have ingredients in them that cause resistance. Labels like “long-lasting” are the heads-up to the fact that your makeup will not be removed easily.
Here is the tea about sleeping with makeup on.
You’re telling your skin that you do not care about it. If you care about something you will treat it well. Model skin treating includes:
- Removing makeup, dirt, sweat, and oils from the day.
- Cleansing the skin using a method that works for you.
- Restoring the elasticity of the skin by using a toner.
- Adding back any moisture loss while cleansing.
Pro Tip: Pampering the skin weekly by incorporating facials or masks can improve the overall health of your skin.
Thoroughly, but gently, washing your face with your favorite cleanser or method is a THE way to treat your skin like a champion.
Healthy skin is unbothered skin.
Clogged pores are one of the biggest causes of bothered skin. More than likely you’ve had your makeup on for hours. Adding the extra hours that you sleep with all of that product is allowing them to sink further into your face.
Yes, you can clean your face and spend about thirty minutes trying to remove all the product. But, that would be insanity. The best solution for problems is avoidance.
- Avoid the breakouts
- Avoid tired-looking skin
- Avoid the overall struggle and embrace your natural beauty in the morning by removing your makeup the night before.
Take the extra ten minutes at night to remove the makeup and cleanse your skin before going to bed as often as possible. No one is perfect so some days you may slip up.
On those days at least remove the surface makeup with a wipe or oil.
You Could Trigger an Allergic Reaction
A few years back I was a person that did not regularly remove makeup from my skin. If I did I rarely properly washed my face. It became a poor habit and my excuse was:
“I’m too tired.”
I began to notice my skin was changing. It was different and I could feel it. I read an article on Self while researching for this particular post and I realized that I could have been dealing with a skin reaction.
Jessica Toscano, the writer for the post I am referring to mentioned something called contact dermatitis.
Contact dermatitis refers to an inflammation of the skin resulting from direct contact of a substance with the surface of the skin. Unlike atopic dermatitis, there is not necessarily a predisposition to allergic disease.aaaai.org
I did not see a dermatologist so I have no hard evidence to confirm this but owning this skin all of my life it is easy to tell when something isn’t quite right.
This may not happen to you. Then again, it could.
All in all, it may be beneficial to start a nighttime routine for makeup to make it a habit. Make it fun by creating a playlist or maybe light some candles to help relax you.
Do what you need to put yourself in a relaxed state so you can enjoy makeup removal. If you make things fun they become less of a task and more of a fun project.
