Wash That Makeup Off!
If you are like so many others, you may not think about washing your face at night before you go to bed, leaving a layer of makeup on your skin until the morning! We’ve all been there – late night dancing with the girls. What harm could there really be leaving your makeup on ’til the morning? Think again! Here’s why:
The Effects of Leaving Makeup On Overnight
Sleep is essential for allowing your body to refresh, rejuvenate, and recharge after a day of hard work. The same holds true for your skin. The nighttime hours, when your body is at rest, offer your skin an opportunity for renewal. If you leave your makeup in place, it will actually damage your skin. Foundation captures environmental toxins and bacteria, allowing it to permeate your skin and settle in your pores. Primer collects pollutants that will cause more harm to your skin. Leave lipstick in place and chapping will result. As for mascara, you’re opening yourself up to clogged follicles, irritated skin, and the potential for eye infections. Moisturisers and serums won’t do you any good if you are applying them to a face that is covered with makeup!
The Long Term Effects
If you don’t break the habit of leaving your makeup on at night, you are going to pay. Clogged pores can mean unattractive outbreaks of acne that are hard to treat. Worse yet, you open yourself up to the possibility of more wrinkles. When you don’t get rid of your makeup, the collagen in your skin will begin to breakdown. You’ll look old before your time as you lose your healthy glow, lines appear, and your skin begins to skin. Fortunately, you can prevent extensive damage to your skin with a thorough cleansing each night.
Take Care of Your Skin, MineTan Beauties!
Make it a mission to cleanse your skin each night before you go to bed. Double cleansing is best. Think of the first cleansing as a way to get a clean slate, removing all traces of makeup and debris on the surface. The second cleansing will reach deeper, preparing your skin for any moisturisers, eye creams, or other serums that you may use to assist your skin. Give your skin the attention it deserves, as well as a little glow and moisturiser combo with our MineTan 3 in 1 Gradual Tan, and you’ll reap the rewards with a beautiful complexion.
