4 reasons why you should absolutely not sleep with makeup on

We’ve all been there, you get home late, are completely exhausted, neglect to wash off your make-up and fall into bed. However, that is the dumbest thing you can do. By not washing off the make-up, you don’t let your skin breathe and you will wake up with worse skin.

We all know we should, but then there are those days when you just can’t bear to wash off your make-up. While it may seem like a small thing to leave your makeup on for a few more hours, it’s not good for your skin. Here are four reasons why you should absolutely not sleep with makeup on.

1. You can get acne

By sleeping with makeup on, your skin can’t breathe and your pores get clogged. If you sleep with makeup on often, your pores will become more and more clogged, which can lead to acne.

2. Your skin and hair can become greasy

When you sleep with make-up on, oils, powders and chemicals accumulate on your pillow. If you do it often, your pillow will be filled with bacteria, which can cause you to get oily skin and greasy hair.

3. Your eyes may become inflamed

When you sleep with mascara or eyeliner on, it can get into your eyes, making the eye irritated. If you often sleep with mascara on, there is a high risk of your eyes becoming inflamed.

4. Your skin may age faster

When you sleep, your skin recovers from the day’s stress and if you’re wearing makeup, it can’t. It can cause you to get wrinkles. If you don’t wash your face, all the dirt and impurities from the day will also remain, which can also cause your skin to age faster.
