Can wearing your makeup to bed cause damage to your skin?

October 24, 2018

Our mothers have told us time and time again.  At least I know mine has.  "Make sure you wash your face before going to bed" was (and still is) the voice I always hear in my head before jumping into bed.  And she was right! It turns out that sleeping in your favourite (and expensive) makeup  can do some serious damage to your skin.  Who knew? According to Dermatologist Jeannette Graf, MD, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center, NY "At night the skin’s most important function is to renew itself. Wearing makeup and foundation at night prevents the renewal process, causing damage to the skin.”

From eye irritations to early wrinkles, those would be good enough reasons for me to remember to cleanse my skin.  Also having makeup wipes on my night table didn't hurt either :)  

So if you don't have someone repeatedly in your ear, let me be that voice you hear every night.  Cleanse, tone and moisturize before crawling into bed.  You can thank me later ;)  

Xoxo
