We’ve all been there: It’s the end of a long day and you’re just flat out too tired to go through the hassle of washing your face before bed. Whether you fell asleep watching a movie in bed or had too much fun on your Friday night with the girls, here are a few reasons why you shouldn’t skip the sink tonight before bed.
1. YOUR SKIN WILL LOOK OLDER
Need proof? In 2013, the in which one woman stopped washing her face for an entire month and simply reapplied her makeup over her unwashed skin each morning. The results: experts said she literally aged herself by 10 years — all because she skipped cleansing for 30 days.
The quickest solution to ridding your face from the days pollution is to give it an easy wipe. I never leave home without my make-up wipes. They come in very handy on trips!
2. PRE-MATURE AGING
Pollution from each day accumulates on the skin, mixing with makeup, dirt, and oil. This combination has been shown to cause premature aging of skin.
I've had my Clarisonic brush for so many years and it's hands down my favorite beauty tool. On nights that I really want to dig in and get my face clean, this is the best tool to use. It really digs deep and scrubs out all of the dirt.
3. EXTRA WORK IN THE MORNING
Imagine waking up with a fresh, clean face with minimal maintenance rather than skin that’s caked with yesterdays foundation.
A big incentive to going to bed with a clean face is that I get to use my favorite sleep oil which is hands down my favorite.
4. DRIES OUT YOUR LASHES
Sleeping in mascara will dry out your lashes, causing them to be brittle, dry, and prone to breakage.
Sometimes I really don't feel like using water and that's when I reach for my favorite make-up remover. This is a rinse free option to washing the make up off of your face.
5. IT’S THE SAME AS NOT DRINKING WATER FOR A DAY
According to , make up is like a film and by living it on for one night it leads to deep dehydration. This amount of blockage can then lead to skin eruption such as acne, spots, black heads and white heads.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you 😉
