All of us have been there. When you arrive home late, all you want to do is change into comfortable clothing and go straight to bed, but you also question whether going to bed with your makeup for one night will have much of an impact on your skin.
You've undoubtedly studied the dos and don'ts of skincare in your pursuit of achieving the desired skincare goals. But did you know that when you decide to not to take off your makeup, all these religiously observed rituals will be a vain effort? Although it's not the worst thing in the world to sleep with makeup occasionally, it is considerably bad for the skin and may have unpleasant consequences. Your hours-old foundation hits the pillow, the accumulation of makeup, grime, and oils from your day, will clog the pores, eventually leading to pimples and acne. Not to mention that your evening routine now includes all the urban pollution that settles into your makeup, giving free radicals additional time to disrupt the skin cells.
You can count on us; if there were a magic spell to take makeup off, we'd be happy to tell you about it. Sadly, though, there isn't.
And it's no secret that taking off makeup after a long day can be a chore. We've occasionally missed it too and dealt with the consequences sooner or later. So that you won't have to go through the same misery, we've noted some quick & simple techniques that will enable you to remove your makeup like a pro!
Step 1: Pick a makeup remover:
You have probably encountered a plethora of makeup removal products in a variety of formulations. There could be several reasons, whether it's your cleansing water, lotion, micellar water, or cleansing oil, etc. However, before you buy a makeup remover, be mindful of your skin type.
Step 2: Doing it the right way:
Once you've decided on a makeup-removing cleanser, gently wipe the face with a cotton pad dipped in the remover. Soak a cotton pad in the best makeup remover, let it sit for a few seconds, and then use a soft cloth to wipe the makeup away gently.
A few seconds of wait is to avoid damage to your skin as the foundation, highlighter, and blush etc must be thoroughly broken down before being swept away. Since most makeup is oil-based, Aaranyaa Makeup Remover with Chamomile and Aloe Vera Extract is typically the best option for completely dissolving these products. Massage it onto the skin, working it up to the hairline and the nasolabial folds. Pat skin dry with a warm washcloth after thoroughly washing off all traces of makeup.
We know that you applied your foundation beautifully and removing that work of art would be difficult. But you must!
Step 3: Cleanse:
Given that the makeup remover did a fantastic job, using a cleanser or facial wash now will help you even more. And believe us, going the additional mile won't take more than two minutes from you.
Step 4: Always moisturize and tone:
You're nearly finished! After cleansing, apply your toner and moisturizer to help your skin retain its natural hydration. Your skin will benefit from having a natural glow.
Wasn't that quick & easy? But hey, if you're still not convinced about why, it's crucial to remove makeup, here are the results of unhealthy skin from sleeping with the makeup on.
a. Eye Irritation:
Sleeping with eye makeup on is extremely irritating and can result in redness, itchy eyes, and puffiness. Always choose an eye makeup remover that gently removes all traces of makeup and contains actives that soothe skin.
Your skin begins to look older and duller when you routinely sleep in makeup. Over time, it can result in pimples, clogged pores, pale skin, and an aggravation of skin disorders.
c. Signs of Ageing:
Your skin will appear older because dirt and cosmetics on your skin can prematurely age your skin by breaking down the skin barrier and causing oxidative damage.
d. Awful breakouts:
The oil, filth, and pollution accumulated on your face over the day can cause you to have terrible acne and clog your pores.
You risk letting all those cosmetics and makeup products seep into your skin’s fine lines and creases when you sleep without removing and cleansing off the makeup thoroughly. This can cause your skin to lose its natural luster in the long run.
The best way to approach your evening skincare routine, is to do it on a clean face. If not, the creams/serums won't be able to reach your skin.
