Clean Skin

June 27, 2014

We’ve all been there. It’s been a long day. You come home tired and hit the sheets immediately. When you wake up, your pillow is streaked with color because you didn’t feel like washing off your makeup before you tumbled into bed.

Girlfriends, let me tell you, your pillowcase is not really the concern here. I’m here to encourage you to do yourself a favor and take those extra steps to clean your sexy pores every night so you can put your most beautiful, healthy face forward each and every day.

Why is taking your makeup off every night important?

  • Makeup on your face will clog your pores while you sleep. Clogged pores can cause blemishes. Foundations , sunscreens and thick oil-based primers are often the worst offenders. They prevent the skin from renewing itself naturally at night, causing blackheads, acne and dullness to the skin.
  • Eye makeup needs to come off every night, too. Mascara and eyeliner can end up in your eyes, irritating them and making you look less rested when you wake up. The irritation can also lead to styes that are painful and not so attractive to look at.

One night of sleeping in your makeup is unlikely to cause long-lasting damage, but over time, it will do damage that is so simple to avoid. Take the extra time you need every night to treat you skin, and yourself, right. Take your makeup off and moisturize with a healthy nighttime moisturizer.

When your head hits that pillow at night, you’ll know you’re getting an even better sleep because your skin is breathing and renewing itself during those nighttime hours.

Here’s to a good night’s sleep, beauties!
