Remove Your Makeup for Brighter, Refreshed Skin

THE CREAM surrounded by luxury makeup products

We’ve all done it. Nearly every woman has gone to bed without taking off their makeup once or twice. Whether it was a rough day at work or a night out on the town, it happens from time to time. That’s okay! Forgetting to remove your makeup before bed once or twice isn’t that big of a deal, but if you make this a habit, it might be. 

Why Should I Take Off My Makeup Before Bed?

There is a laundry list of negative effects that can come from leaving makeup on overnight, like:


It’s important to take off your makeup before bed - makeup and other impurities accumulate throughout the day and if you don’t melt them away from your pores, they can clog and end up irritated and inflamed, eventually leading to breakouts. And no one enjoys those, especially during the summer.

Overall Skin Health

Forgetting to remove your makeup before bed is vital to keep your skin healthy and balanced. Sleeping is like a nightly renewal process, increasing blood flow and rebuilding collagen to repair the damage from the day.

When you sleep in makeup, you don’t give your skin a chance to renew. This can leave your skin looking dull and tired when you wake up in the morning instead of refreshed and glowing!

Eye Health

One negative impact of sleeping in makeup that many people don’t consider is that while you sleep, makeup particles, like mascara, can actually get into your eyes and cause irritation or infection. Long story short - this can affect your vision and cause more problems down the line, so definitely avoid it.

Future Makeup

Without good skincare, flawless-looking makeup can be much harder to achieve. When you effectively cleanse every day, you give your skin a healthy and even base for makeup. That way, your next round of foundation will go on smoothly and easily, helping you look fresh-faced and invigorated.

Your Bedsheets

Makeup rubs off pretty easily on your pillowcase and sheets while you sleep. This isn’t just messy and leaves you with stained bedding… it can also cause your bedding to accumulate bacteria and oils over time, which lead to breakouts and inflammation - even if your face is clean when you go to bed. 

So, to make a long story short, it’s probably a good idea to take off your makeup before bed. Just make sure to use the right cleanser to do so. Makeup removers may seem like a cheap and easy way to do so, but these can be made with chemicals and ingredients that dry and irritate your skin.
