Why You Should Never Sleep With Makeup On

6:00 AM

Hi my beauties! Today I wanted to share some reasons why you should never sleep with makeup on. I mean come on we all have done it more than once. I always find that I feel a bit dirty when I wake up with my makeup still on my face and my eye makeup is smeared to make me look like I got raccoon eyes. Come on ladies and gentlemen you all know what I mean.

When you take good care of your skin it will most definitely pay off. So lets move onto some of the reasons why you should not sleep with your makeup still on.

-Brittle Lashes: Sleeping in mascara will dry out your lashes, causing them to be brittle, dry, and prone to breakage.

-Clogged Pores: Your skin uses the time that you sleep to replenish, and if you go to bed with your blush, foundation, or bronzer still on, your pores can't breathe. Clogged pores can cause breakouts, and far worse blackheads.

-Bacteria Breeding Ground: Skin oils, smoke and smut, germs and bacteria from your hands or your phone touching your face will create a breeding ground for bacteria overnight. This encourages breakouts, cold sores, and unhealthy skin.

-Dull Skin: Your skin needs to be able to produce the vitamins and minerals that promote healthy, glowing skin.

-Harder to Remove In The Morning: If you slept in makeup before you know how much of a pain in the butt it can be to get it off the next morning. By washing your face before you go to bed, you avoid this chore in the morning.

I hope you all enjoyed this post and if you have any other reasons why not to wear your makeup to bed feel free to share your comments below! Have a beautiful day everyone!
