7. Acne Breakouts
Dermatology experts highlight that just like the heart and other body organs, the skin is always working to heal and rejuvenate itself. It is replenished with countless proteins, lipids, water, natural chemicals and other minerals, but it is also made up of pores, which release sweat and sebum, a natural liquid that hydrates and moisturizes the skin. Sebum also eliminates dead skin cells and other pollutants from the pores, however, when we apply makeup, the pores get clogged and hence, unable to secrete sebum, which triggers the breakout of acne by enlarging the pores.
It is important to note that the mechanical pressure that a pillow exerts on the face tends to blend makeup residues with hair follicles, which further aggravates acne breakouts caused by clogged pores.
It is important to clear away all the makeup residue and unclog your pores before going to sleep to avoid acne breakouts and dryness spells.
8. Dryness Spells
Failing to remove makeup before hitting the bed leads to an uneven skin tone, excessive flakiness and dryness spells. It is important to cleanse away all makeup residues and moisturize the skin to allow it to rejuvenate its lost moisture and repair the damage it has suffered through the day.
If you leave your makeup overnight, it will promote dryness and wrinkles that occur due to a loss of skin elasticity, which make sure that the wrinkles or squints that emerge on your face are imprinted and more prominent.
9. An Uneven Skin Tone
Sleeping with makeup not only promotes unhygienic habits and speedy ageing, but it also causes the skin tone to be excessively uneven. Basically, it prevents the skin from effectively combatting against pigmentation by interrupting the skin regeneration process, which leads to skin damage, dry spots, and signs of premature ageing.
