3 Bad Things That Will Happen If You Wear Your Makeup To Bed


 It’s getting late, you've had a long day and you're ready to hit the pillow. But there's one thing left to do before you drift off into sweet slumber—take off your makeup! If you don’t you could end up in a world of trouble…

If you’re a big fan of skincare, you probably know that a good skincare routine is key for keeping your skin looking fresh and vibrant, and taking off your makeup is an essential part of that routine. Today, we’re looking at 3 different things you’ll avoid when you stick to your cleansing routine.

Clogged Pores

When you go to bed with makeup still on your face, it prevents your skin from breathing freely which can lead to clogged pores. Clogged pores are breeding grounds for bacteria which can cause acne flare-ups, breakouts and a whole lot of irritation.

To keep your skin free of clogged pores and irritation, make sure you are ultra-dedicated to cleansing your skin every morning and evening. Not only will you have a beautiful, fresh feeling afterwards, but your skin will show how much time you spend taking care of it!

Premature Aging

Another consequence of wearing makeup overnight is premature aging. If your skin isn't able to breathe properly because it’s caked in foundation and powder, you’ll start to notice fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin becoming a lot more noticeable in your complexion.

This is exactly why your cleanser is your best friend! The better you are at keeping your skin clean, the better your chances at keeping signs of aging at bay. Putting aside 2 minutes of your day to keep your complexion fresh could help you look years younger!

Eye Irritation

Wearing eye makeup overnight can be particularly harmful since it's so close to the delicate area around the eyes. Leaving mascara or eyeliner on for too long can result in redness, puffiness, and irritation due to clogged pores around the eyes or allergic reactions caused by harsh chemicals in cosmetics products.

Instead, be kind to your eye area and keep it as clean as possible. Since it’s such a delicate area already, it takes a little extra care to avoid irritation and redness, but we think you’ll agree it’s certainly worth it!

Next time you're tempted to roll into bed without taking off your makeup first—remember these three reasons why you should resist temptation and give yourself a mini facial instead! You’ll not only feel better, but your skin will thank you for it too!
