10 Reasons to seriously avoid sleeping in your makeup

We have all had that one guilty night when we have crashed without removing our makeup. It might have been due to an over indulgent weekend or a stressful day at work that made us skip the night cleansing routine but as proven time and again, it is disastrous to sleep with your makeup on.

We have heard dermatologists and beauty experts emphasize on the importance of cleaning your skin of makeup before the night cap and what they say is definitely true! At night, our body relaxes and this is the time that our body takes to repair damages and rejuvenate skin cells. If you haven’t been listening to the expert advice, you might want to start doing it now because this is what happens when you sleep with your makeup on:

1 Dry Skin

During night, our skin rejuvenates the cells and does major repair work that helps you look fresh every morning. When you sleep with your makeup on, this layer prevents your skin from breathing and it results in dehydration. The harmful pollutants also stick to your skin and cause harm. This phenomenon affects the ¬¬collagen content in your skin and leads to excessive dryness. This dryness may sometimes lead to rashes and itchy skin as well!

2 Wrinkles

Sleeping in make-up makes your skin dry and this in turn increases the wrinkly look on your face. This wrinkle effect is enhanced by the inability of the skin to rejuvenate and heal itself. Dewy effect becomes nonexistent and the wrinkles deepen due to continual use of makeup at night.
