We all know the pros of wearing makeup, but there is one time of day when it’s important to remove it: at night, before you go to sleep. How many times have you gone to bed without taking your makeup off and woken the next day with puffy eyes and lovely dark smears on your pillow? Not only does it mean that you’re going to have to throw your pillow case in the laundry, it also means another night of built-up makeup on your skin.
Wearing makeup may look good on the surface but, just beneath that layer of beauty you’ve so carefully applied to your skin, pores are getting clogged with dirt and old skin – which doesn’t sound so pretty. If you don’t remove makeup properly at the end of the day, those pores remain clogged, which can bring about the appearance of blemishes and pimples – counter to what you are trying to achieve. Even worse, if you don’t clean your eye makeup off correctly it could result in the appearance of a stye or even an infection.
Cleaning off your makeup properly should be a nightly ritual, and if you start doing it correctly you should notice that your skin starts to look younger, brighter and healthier over time.
