Why You Should Remove Your Makeup before Bed

You’ve just had an amazing night out with your friends and you finally make it back home. How do you get ready for bed? You probably kicked your heels off, put your hair down, brushed your teeth, and maybe swished with a little mouthwash, but…Did you remove your makeup? If you didn’t; WIPE YOUR MAKEUP OFF LUVLIE, it’s important!

Here’s why:

Damages Your Skin

Makeup is usually made of ‘heavier’ substances that clog your pores. Now we all know what clogged pores do, they lead to white/blackheads and acne. Nobody wants that! Subsequently if you are prone to acne there is a chance it will worsen and that will lead to scarring and that is to be avoided at all costs!

Don’t Let Those Wrinkles Win the Race

Another side-effect of sleeping with makeup is your complexion looks dull and dry in the morning. You will probably notice some wrinkles. While you sleep, your skin is recuperating, repairing and regenerating. This is made difficult with makeup on because your pores are blocked and your skin can’t breathe. If you already have wrinkles they will get deeper and more obvious.

Did Someone Say Infections?

Makeup is created to last, which means to stay on longer, which is why they are quite a bit sticky. Throughout the day, your makeup will have lots of dirt and germs stick to it and these can lead to infections. Eye liner and mascara especially, can be harmful to sleep with because the skin around your eyes are the most delicate and sensitive, therefore more prone to infections.
