3 Reasons You Should Remove Your Makeup Every Night


We've all heard it time and time again. "Don't sleep with your makeup on!" We know it isn't good for your skin, but what is the problem? There will always be those lazy nights when we just don't feel like putting that extra step in before bed, and that's fine – but only very occasionally. Of course, we are huge cheerleaders of keeping clean, and when it comes to makeup removal, your face is no different than anywhere else on your body. It may be even more important considering your face's crucial features – eyes, nose, mouth. These are all areas that are critical to our health. Here are a few motivations to clean your makeup at the end of every day.
You will clog your pores, causing breakouts.
The most well-known issue with makeup is its ability to clog your pores. Leaving it on overnight only increases those odds. And what happens when your pores clog? Breakouts! The best way to treat a breakout is to avoid it in the first place. Washing your makeup off at the end of each day ensures that your pores are squeaky clean, soaking up all the precious oxygen it needs while you sleep.
You will disrupt your skin's natural balance and influence dry and dull-looking skin.

In addition to pimples, you are also causing your skin to dry and dull. When makeup isn't thoroughly washed off before bed, you essentially leave a barrier up. Having that barrier means your skin can't breathe and naturally shed or exfoliate. The outer layer of our skin needs to be regularly and naturally shed to bring in fresh, more
hydrated skin. It is an essential biological process. Also, when you leave makeup on long-term, it often settles in fine lines and wrinkles, making your skin look dull and aged.
You will risk eye irritation or even infection.

Keep your beautiful eyes clean. Mascara is one of the biggest no-nos when it comes to sleeping in your makeup. Going about your day, your mascara and other cosmetics can pick up harmful airborne pathogens. Leaving that potential bacteria near your eyes overnight? You don't want to risk it. Not only do you leave the door open to possible infection, but getting leftover makeup flakes in your eye is irritating on its own. It's a lose/lose situation. Wash your face.
