What Really Happens When You Sleep in Your Makeup

You’ve always heard that sleeping in your makeup is a huge skin “no-no.”  I know I’m not the only one that’s too lazy to take off my makeup before bed every once in a while!  But what really happens to your skin when you let your makeup sit overnight?  Here are the real dangers of sleeping in your makeup!

Especially in the winter, it can be hard to keep your skin properly hydrated.  When you leave foundation and other face makeup on your skin overnight, it clogs your Chelsea Crockett - Dry Skinpores and causes it to dry out.  If you allow it several nights in a row, your skin might start to flake which makes it hard to apply your makeup properly.  This dryness will cause an increase in dead skin cells which results in very dull skin that can’t be fixed with a little moisturizer!  If you don’t wash your face, you’ll lose your skin’s glow and radiance!

As far as eye makeup and lipstick goes, a buildup of either of these is no good either!  Not only is leftover mascara and eyeliner bad for your lashes, but it leaves your eyes and the areas around them prone to infections.  And as far as lipstick, caking your lips multiple times a day and not washing it off at night can lead to chapped, dry lips.  This doesn’t look or feel too good!

Now that you know the truth, remember to find the motivation to take off your makeup when you’re getting ready for bed whether you’re too lazy or not!

Bedtime procrastination is a real thing. Our bodies give us cues to let us know that we are tired and that we should go to sleep, but there are so many temptations telling us to delay bedtime. We all know we need at least 8 hours of sleep to be healthy, but let’as face it, we have all reached for our phone or the TV remote and have postponed sleep.  Sticking to a sleep schedule can be tough when you are used to procrastinating. Here are a few ways to get into a better sleep routine so that you can be the healthiest you can be.

  1. Establish a bedtime routine: Whether it is reading a book at the same time every night or setting an alarm to remind you when to start heading to bed, setting a regular bedtime routine is the best way to train your mind into recognizing when it is bedtime.4365576
  2. Work out: Exercising about 3 hours before you head to bed can be a great way to induce deep sleep.
  3. Don’t take your problems to bed: Try to go to bed happy (or if not happy, try to not be upset). Easier said than done, I know! Don’t dwell on your problems. They can cause restless sleep! Try journaling your problems or worries before bed to help calm your mind.

Sleep well!

XOXO, Chels
