If you’ve ever been too tired to take off your makeup before going to bed, don’t worry, it isn’t just you. Most everyone, from those who like a natural look to people who prefer a dramatic full face, have tried to rationalize going to sleep without removing their makeup first.
When that happens, you need to get tough and take your skin care seriously. Trust us; it makes a huge difference for your face.
Why It Matters
Your skin does the hard task of healing and rebuilding while you sleep. After a full day of exposure to the sun, environmental pollutants, dirt, and yes, makeup, skin needs the nighttime to breathe and recover. If it’s still trapped under a layer of cosmetics, it does not get a chance to renew.
When you do not remove your makeup, your pores can stay clogged, leading to irritations, rashes, and breakouts. Your skin can also lose that healthy glow and even age prematurely because any damage can be accelerated.
Up and at ‘Em
The possibility of acne and aging should be enough to get you out of bed to wash off your makeup. Keep in mind, however, that makeup removers are not the same thing as facial cleansers. You need to use both to take good care of your skin.
In addition, makeup removing products can have different ingredients, so you should pick a formula that works well with your skin type.
For example, any alcohol-based remover can irritate or dry your skin, which means it may not be a good fit for sensitive skin. An oil-based product can cause clogged pores or breakouts, making it less than ideal for oily skin. If your skin is normal, you can opt for makeup cloths occasionally, but they should not replace other methods that are better for everyday use.
