The Dangers of Sleeping in Makeup

Sleeping in Makeup

Sleeping in Makeup, we all have done it at least once, whether it was because of a late night out partying or a hard day of work, somehow we have made it to the next day without removing our makeup. But is it such a bad thing? Yes, while sleeping with your makeup, gives you that perfect look in the morning and makes the task of getting ready easier, it may actually cause damage to your skin in the long-term.

So here are some reasons to clean that makeup off after a long day:

To avoid clogged pores; if you only sleep in makeup once or twice, you may be able to avoid this. However the longer you practice that habit of sleeping in makeup the more your pores will become clogged consequently leading to acne outbreaks, And we all know acne by itself is a curse on women. Why not try to prevent it?

To avoid infections; some people have woken up with burning eyes and itchy skin because they neglected to wash their makeup off. This highly depends on the type of makeup you wear but it is still possible. That is why we recommend makeup that is 100% vegan and cruelty-free. Those kinds of products are less likely to affect you in this way.

However, if you practice sleeping in makeup you are just speeding up that process.  In addition to that, your skin looks duller and does not have that awesome morning glow, remember your body is your temple and your face is the landmark of attraction.

To avoid getting chapped lips; everyone hates it when their lips are chapped, it’s irritating especially when you need to constantly apply lip balm. This can be avoided if you wipe your lipstick off at the end of the day. I have used lipsticks before that have made my lips peel because of the same reason and I vow never again will I sleep in my lipstick, but sometimes I still do, we are all humans and sometimes we just go to sleep but we need to put in that extra effort.

While wearing makeup 24-7 has its appeal and there are some brands out there that strive to do just this, the adverse effects are worth considering, I too am at fault to this and I know that sooner or later it will catch up with me and that is why I practice what I preach and try very hard not to go to sleep in my makeup. So my advice is to do the same. We would love to hear your thoughts on the matter.
