We all have had days when we hate to remove our make-up and trust me on most days we hate to got through the whole process of removing face makeup. Recently I noticed my skin was not as smooth as it used to be courtesy parties. Though I should not blame it; because the real reason was just wiping my face with a tissue and sleeping with at least the base layer.
Most dermatologists stress on Makeup removal as something more important than putting good makeup and it should be a part of your makeup regime. It is as important as brushing your teeth at night otherwise your mouth bacteria will start acting up.
After figuring out a lot of things, I found out these top 5 reasons never to sleep in your Makeup –
- Clogging Pores
We all know what makeup does to us, it covers up all our pores giving us the perfect flawless look. We have become so used to the age old foundation and what not on top of it we have our face primers, highlighters, pressed powders, contouring colors. Your skin may belong to any category but clogging your pores is never a good idea if you want to make your skin shine. It starts with small break outs and coverts to pimples and blemishes very soon.
- No No to Foundation
Most doctors say that the base is the worst product to leave on to your face and it should be removed daily for regular application. When makeup like this is not properly removed it results in the breakdown of collagen, wrinkles, clogged pores, and acne flare-ups. And you might be still blaming it on your junk diet.
- Eye Makeup
With the amount of love we create our dramatic eyes it is equally important to spend and equivalent amount of time removing every layer of the smokey eyes or the cat eyed liner. Eye make up can do more harm than most other products, it can easily result in red eyes, eye infections, irritation and heating of eyes. Mascara is supposed to damage your eyelids too when not removed properly and never sleep with artificial lashes the gum can spoil your tender skin.
- Lipstick sticking to the lips
Your left over lipstick will increase the chapping of your lips many fold. Many lipsticks contain drying waxes which help the lipstick to last longer on to lips. Ideally you need to remove your lipstick and put a nice lip balm on your lips after removing the lipstick to keep your lips baby soft.
- The Best part
So after all this you must be wondering what really is required that you remove your make-up. You have various options to choose from – make up removing wipes and makeup removers. Make sure you pick up something that is oil based so that your make up comes off very easily. You just need to take a cotton ball and cleanse your face and eyes. Sometimes eye makeup gets more rigid and takes more time. After cleaning just apply little night cream on your face and non- tinted lip balm for best results.
