Be honest, do you remove the makeup off your face EVERY night? Even if you don’t wear makeup, its incredibly important to get rid of all pollutants, oil and grubbiness at the even of each day.
GoodHouseKeeping outlines the reasons why makeup removal should be mandatory…
1. You’ll break out.
If you don’t cleanse your face, dirt and dead skin cells are not removed. They stay on the skin, clogging pores and leading to chronic inflammation in the form of pimples.»
2. Your complexion will appear dull.
If you’ve ever woken up in the morning, looked in the mirror, and wished your skin looked brighter, your lack of cleansing before you hit the bed could be the problem. Oils and dead skin cells on the outermost layers of the skin are matted up against the pillow all night, and natural turnover of this dull epidermal layer is diminished. Regular cleansing and exfoliation are integral to revealing healthy new skin cells and allowing the natural repair processes of the skin to occur.
3. Your skin will look older — and you’ll have more wrinkles.
Dirt and makeup trapped against your skin cause environmentally-induced oxidative damage. This leads to a breakdown of the skin barrier and prematurely ages your face.
4. If you have acne, you might make it worse.
While cleansing is an important step in anyone’s beauty regimen, it’s especially key for those who have temperamental skin. For those with oily skin, like acne patients, sleeping in makeup could worsen their skin conditions.
5. You could put yourself at risk for an infection.
While the act of sleeping in your makeup may not cause an infection, if you already have an active skin abrasion, such as an inflamed acne pimple, it’s possible that an infection can occur because your skin barrier is compromised. Don’t forget our skin is our first line of defence against infections.
6. You may develop a rash.
Makeup often contains irritants like dyes and perfumes that, when left on the skin for long periods of time, can cause inflammation and those with rosacea or sensitive skin can be especially susceptible.
