10. Interrupts Cell Regeneration
As we sleep through the night, our body undergoes cell regeneration, and when we sleep without removing makeup, it leads to clogged pores, which interrupt this process of rejuvenation.
Basically, this harms the skin by preventing cell turnover, which is essential to fight off signs of ageing, especially wrinkles, and maintain a healthy, youthful skin.
11. Eye Irritations
Naturally, sleeping without removing your makeup will lead to puffiness and irritability, and redness.
The eyelashes are responsible for shielding the eyeballs against all kinds of pollutants, and if they are not washed regularly and recurrently, the debris and pollutants get mixed up with makeup residue, which triggers our immune system to fight it off upon considering it as a potential infection. This leads to swollen, puffy eyes, redness and irritability.
12. Brittle Eyelashes that Easily Break Off
Dozing off without removing your eye makeup, particularly mascara, causes heavy lash breakage as it makes the lashes more brittle.
Therefore, it is important to use a gentle makeup remover to ensure all your eye makeup has been removed and no residue of mascara or eyeliner remains in your eyes while you sleep.
