Why You Must Never Wear Makeup to Bed!

Hello my lovelies!

If you have ever worn makeup to bed say aye. Aye!

I am so guilty, some of us more than others. Most of us are aware of the many dangers of sleeping with makeup but sometimes we just can’t help it. I recently went three consecutive days without taking my makeup off and the result to say the least, was devastating. I had huge painful acne on my face, dry patchy looking skin that made me look years above my age! This cost me two weeks to partially recover from the damage. Just incase you are trying to pull a similar stunt, you might want to have a rethink.

Dermatologists have said that one of the dangers of sleeping with makeup consistently is that it might begin to take its toll on your complexion and skin issues such as acne, skin irritation, and premature ageing might develop. They also say sleeping with makeup is so bad that it can significantly increase breakouts, blemishes and skin dryness.

When we sleep our bodies recover from the various stresses and hazards it experiences during the day, our skin sheds this and regenerate its cells. By leaving makeup on, we are creating a barrier to the skin’s natural exfoliation and replenishment process. What’s more, the makeup actually clings to free radicals in the environment, these free radicals over time results in fine lines and premature ageing.

Sleeping consistently, with makeup can cause dryness, redness, irritation, infection, swelling around the eyes and chapped lips. Imagine all the heartache for 5hrs of sleep?

To avoid all these, makeup removers such as  Neutrogena makeup Remover Towelette which cost only N800 and simple wipes should always be by your bedside, in your car on even in your purse for those super tired nights, you can actually wipe your face on the move before you get into bed. Also, remember to wipe off lipstick and replace with a generous covering of balm (my personal favourite is Maybelline baby lips) to put back moisture on your lips.

Be good.
