Do you (ladies) ever wake up to this real-life skincare nightmare? You come home after a fun night out, lay down and fall asleep only to wake up in the morning with the sun peaking through your windows.
When this happens on rare occasion, I’ll open my eyes and wonder “Did I remember to wash my make-up off last night?” I’ll slowly reach my hand to my face and gently brush my fingers against my eyelashes. If I feel the double coat of Loreal mascara still on from the night before I’ll scream, “Nooooo!” After accepting I commited one of the “Seven Deadly Skin Sins,” I’ll run to the sink and wash it off.

WHY is it SO important to wash makeup off before bed?
“At night is when all of your skin rejuvenation happens. If you wear makeup to bed your skin can’t
get the oxygen it needs.” –totalbeauty.com
Some women have what I call SUPER skin and aren’t really affected by sleeping in makeup.
Are you one of them? It leaves my complexion tired the next day, my eyelashes brittle, plus it can cause blemishes & clog pores. I recommend women & men wash their face before hitting the sack.
When you’re wearing a full face of makeup, it can be easier to use makeup remover first (I like Clinique or Neutrogena) and then wash
I JUST heard about a Dutch study called “Natural Beauty” on Nowness.com. A model was applied with 365 day’s worth of makeup on her face in ONE day. It took 9 hours to apply using 228.40ml of makeup!
Results are below:
From natural to 365 layers of makeup in 1 day

I don’t really understand the point of this experiment. It’s kinda gross. And I wish they would have showed how long it took her to wash off all those layers. 🙂
I DO know I never want to accidently sleep in my makeup again!
Have a great weekend!
