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!

Don’t get me wrong, summer is the best time of the year, but some of us teens get into the routine of staying up late at night… or even into the early hours of the morning! It may not affect us when we’re out of school and sleeping in through lunch, but during the school year it hits us like a ton of bricks! If you’re one of those people stuck in the exhausting routine, here are a few tips on breaking the habit!

  • Try drinking a glass of Sleepy Time tea. For some people, this tea is a miracle worker! If you start drinking a cup an hour or so before you hit the hay, you’ll feel calm and will hopefully doze off right away.Chelsea Crockett - Sleepytime Tea
  • Put your phone far away from you or in a different room. This may be the last thing you want to do, but I promise it works! 90% of the time you’re up after midnight is because your phone has too many easy distractions.
  • Use lavender! Lavender’s scent is known for relaxing and relieving stress. Purchase a lavender scented candle and let it burn for a while before you go to bed. Let it fill your room while it releases your stress, too!
  • Simply relax! Oftentimes you may find yourself getting frustrated and giving up on falling asleep early. DON’T! If you lay in bed and focus your mind on other things, it’ll help make you sleepy and you’ll eventually doze off.

So next time you’re having trouble catching some ZZZ’s, try out a couple of these steps and you’ll hopefully make it through the day without sleeping through class :)!

Sleeping can be tough when you want to look your best.  The messy hair, slobber, and puffy eyes are all part of the package!  Although it can be tough to rise and shine, here are a few tips and tricks to wake up feeling like Beyoncé…flawless!

  1. Switch out your cotton pillowcase for a satin one. Turning over in the night can cause fizziness and breakage. Satin allows your hair to glide, diminishing frizz!
  2. For whiter teeth, mix a small amount of baking soda and water together to create a paste. Once you’ve brushed your teeth as you normally would, brush your teeth again with the baking Chelsea Crockett- baking soda for white teethsoda mixture. This will erase surface stains. Since you can’t eat or drink for an hour after doing this, nighttime is the best time!
  3. If you tend to wake up with dry skin, try using a humidifier at night. This will add moisture to your skin as you sleep!
  4. Dry feet? Try rubbing on a generous amount of foot cream and putting on cotton socks after wards!
  5. If you tend to wake up with a puffy face, try sleeping on your back and elevating your head! This will prevent unwanted/extra fluids from flowing to your face.
  6. First and foremost, always get enough sleep!

Happy sleeping Insiders!
