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!

Makeup remover is the best thing in the world when it comes to a quick fix for taking off your makeup. Some people confuse it as an every night substitute for washing your face which shouldn’t be the case! Others question if it’s hurting their skin much more than helping it. I did a little research and dug up some answers!

To sum up the overall answer, makeup removers are NOT bad for your skin as long as you continue washing your face after using them. Makeup removers cannot be Chelsea Crockett - Makeup Removersubstituted for your nightly face wash. This is where it causes a problem! Also, be a smart shopper when buying your product and pay attention to what ingredients are used. If it is an alcohol based remover, try avoiding it! They can sometimes dry out your skin and cause irritation. Look for oil-free products as well. Oil can clog up your pores and cause breakouts. I definitely recommend an oil-free makeup remover for those with oily or sensitive skin!

If you’re cursed with super sensitive skin, you have some more guidelines to follow. Makeup removers with fragrances can sometimes annoy and irritate your pores. BareMinerals is a good brand to look at when it comes to following sensitive skin rules!

Knowing what products compliment your face best and how you should apply them can sometimes be a tricky task. Most girls don’t have time to sit and redo their makeup 5 times till they get it perfect (I’m one of those girls!). Luckily, brands have made it easier to correct your makeup mistakes. Here are three of my favorites!

  • Eyeliner Correcting Pen.Chelsea Crockett - Color Correctors If you have yet to master the art of eyeliner, this pen is soon to be your best friend. Wings are probably the hardest to achieve, and this pen lets you erase and clean up any unwanted lines or smudges! My favorite kind is Hard Candy’s Oopsy-Proof Liner (which you can pick up at Walmart!). E.l.f. also offers a Makeup Remover Pen which can work just as well!
  • Color Correcting Concealers. These products are so cool! If you’ve never used these before, they’re basically concealers in various colors that cancel out redness, breakouts, etc. and correct your skin! For example, you can use the green color correcting stick to neutralize any redness on your skin, perhaps from breakouts or an annoying pimple. If you’re a little skeptical, try them out for yourself! I’m obsessed!
  • Makeup Remover Pads. If you ever mess up on your contour, eyeshadow, eyeliner, etc., one swipe of a makeup remover pad and you can start the process over again!

I hope these products help you perfect your daily makeup routine!
