5 Awful things That Happen When You Sleep With Makeup

5 Awful Things That Happen When You Sleep in Your Makeup

We all know sleeping in our makeup is bad, but how bad is it really? Let's just say, you'll be very vigilant about removing your foundation, concealer, mascara, and more after reading this article.

·         You Will Break out
If you don't cleanse your face, dirt and dead skin cells are not removed," explains celebrity dermatologist Dr. Annie Chiu. "They stay on the skin, clogging pores and leading to chronic inflammation in the form of pimples, and we don’t want that do we? I guess it’s a no no
·         Your Complexion will go Dull
Have ever woken up in the morning, looked in the mirror, and wished your skin looked brighter, your lack of cleansing before you hit the bed could be the problem. "Oils and dead skin cells on the outermost layers of the skin are matted up against the pillow all night, and natural turnover of this dull epidermal layer is diminished," says Dr. Chiu. "Regular cleansing and exfoliation are integral to revealing healthy new skin cells and allowing the natural repair processes of the skin to occur." Bonus: After establishing a good skin routine, your complexion will look so glowing; you won't need nearly as much makeup to brighten it up.
·         Your skin will look older
Make up slows down the renewal process that your skin goes through as you sleep. Your skin, coated with make-up is unable to breathe and the chemicals that permeate the skin interfere with the natural repair mechanism. Makeup, when left on your skin gives rise to stress that attack your skin with harmful bacterial, This damages the your skin and decreases the production of collagen (a compound that helps keep your skin healthy, elastic and line free) making your skin age faster. Says Dr Chiu
·         Lead to Dry Skin /Wrinkles
Since make-up blocks your pores and slows down the production of sebum, According to the acne ease website,( Sebum is an oily substance produced by the sebaceous glands. Our skin needs it in order to function, but too much of it can lead to acne, and an overly oil complexion ,Other than the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet, sebaceous glands can be found all over the body. They are prominent on the face, especially the forehead and chin) this leads to dry skin, which further worsens the way you look. Dry skin also slows down the repair process, which causes the formation of wrinkles and duller more tired looking skin

·         Can cause skin irritation
According to experts, the more sensitive your skin, the more likely you are to suffer from red patches of irritated skin. This is can happen despite using make-up made especially for sensitive skin. The reason? Well, when you sleep without removing make-up the chemicals in the make-up, the dirt from the environment sticks to it and other chemicals get locked in, increasing the amount of irritants that are present on your skin. This leads to an allergic reaction which causes reddened and irritated skin. Apart from this, the skin also becomes extremely dry which worsens the irritation and may cause it to spread.

okay now that you have read all the awful things that your skin will go through if you keep sleeping with makeup ,can we talk of some tips to protect your skin when you take off makeup ?yes am sure you will want to know.

Tips to protect your skin as you remove make-up
There are a number of make-up removers that you can buy but there are a few things you should take into consideration.

·         For water proof make-up use an oil based remover.
·         Use a special eye make up remover for mascara and eyeliner(my Fav will be the Bifial from Lancôme check on the right hand side to purchase this  )
·         For waterproof eye make-up, take a cotton pad soaked in the remover and hold it over your closed eye for a few seconds. This will give the remover a little bit of time to melt the make-up.
·         Your daily cleanser is usually good enough to get rid of foundation and concealer. If you don’t want to use an artificial cleanser.
·         Avoid rubbing your eyes and face to remove make-up. Be gentle.
·         In the case of lipstick, use your eye make-up remover to get rid of it. After you have removed it apply some petroleum jelly to help keep your lips moisturised.
