Gasp! You did what last night?
Okay I promise not to tell anybody. But did you know sleeping in your makeup can cause breakouts? I was one of those people until I found out how bad for your skin it really is.
Picture this, if you went ahead and applied makeup at 7am and then come 7pm you’re done and dusted for the day ready to hop straight into bed after dinner, technically you would have been wearing your makeup for 10 hours straight.
When you head to the land of nod you need to get rid of any makeup you’ve worn in the day as number one, it’ll get over your pillowcase, stain it and then create a breeding ground of bacteria with oil and dirt.
Trust me on this you will feel amazing heading to sleep with a clean face and your complexion will thank you for it.
Tips For Mastering Makeup Removal!
- Begin your routine in the shower. Keep your cleanser and exfoliator inside the shower or next to your bath so you can see it then remember to wash your face.
- When you step out of the shower, now is the time to apply any chemical acids, serums and let them wait as you comb your hair and blow dry. 30 minutes should be perfect!
- Keep all your moisturizers on your bedside table and you’ll never forget to put them on at night. I always keep my face, hand cream and lip balm next to my lamp and apply all three before hopping into bed.
So you’ve got that down pat, but what’s in it for you I hear you ask?
