Why wearing make-up to bed while sleeping is bad for your Skin

When we return home tired from work of a Friday night party, we tend to be too lazy to wash our face. Sleeping with make-up on is something that happens to all of us, but not necessarily a wise thing to do.

If you regularly hit the sheets with tons of make up on, here are few reasons why you should stop doing so.

Eye Infection and Irritation

Most of the make-up is done around on the surface of eye area. Negligence in removing eye make-up can lead to dryness, redness, irritation and infection.



If you’ve ever woke up in the morning, observed yourself in the mirror and wished to have beautiful glowing skin, your lack of cleansing before going to the bed can be the problem. Seeping in your make-up can increase your exposure to free radicals leading to collagen breakdown results in skin aging 7 times faster.


Not removing foundation can definitely lead to majorly clogged pores and pimples. Especially for those with oily skin and acne, sleeping in make-up can worsen their skin condition. Cleansing is a vital step in anyone’s beauty routine, it’s key for those who have unpredictable skin.

Dry Skin

Leaving make-up overnight can inhibit the absorption of skin care products by creating a barrier that prevents beneficial ingredients from penetrating the skin’s surface because of which, the moisturizer won’t be able to nourish your parched skin.

Clogged Eyelash Follicles

Sleeping in mascara and thick liner may result in the clogging of the tiny hair follicles and oil glands on your eyelids. When these areas become clogged, red, painful bump on the surface of your eyelid can form.


Broken Eyelashes

Left-on mascara can cause eyelashes to become brittle, break easily and even shed faster.

Chapped Lips

It is a sad truth that plumping lipstick also zaps the moisture off your lips if you leave it too long. Sleeping with any type of lipstick will result in dryness and chapping.
