We’ve all been there. It’s late. You’re exhausted. Your bed looks so inviting… but you’re wearing makeup. Ugh. Do I really have to wash my face? I’ll do it tomorrow; it’ll be fine.
But will it? According to dermatologists, not so much.
As it turns out, your body is just as big a fan of sleep as you are. It gets to rest, recharge, and restore itself from the nitty-gritty of the day.
What can really happen just from sleeping with your makeup on? Glad you asked:
- It clogs pores and leads to the development (or worsening) of acne. Not cool—especially when those pesky pimples are already hard enough to deal with. And guess what? The more you sleep in your makeup, the more clogged your pores get.
- Nixing a thorough cleanse can cause wrinkles. That’s right… we’re talking crow’s feet and premature aging. Yikes.
- Can you say, “Eye problems”? Wayward mascara and eye makeup can get into your baby blues (or browns or greens) while you sleep. Unless you’re hoping to develop some major irritation or styes, washing it off before hitting the pillow is a good idea.
- Ready for some stellar infections, inflammation or a lackluster complexion? Snoozing with your face on can also lead to these ailments and other skin imperfections.
Now that you know the truth, what will you do with it? Keep it to yourself? No, that’s not your style. Spread it far and wide? That’s more like it. And, hey, Daytona College can help you on your mission.
