Imagine that you are lying on the couch, relaxing after a busy day.
1, 2, 3, time flies! You wake up with a start. You have slept 30 minutes and it’s time to go to bed.
Your mouth tastes as if you gargled water from the toilet. Now is not the time that you want to think about your skin-care routine, right before you crawl under the covers.
There ARE times when you do not do your skin-care routine in the evening, but go straight to bed with your makeup on.
The sight in the mirror the next morning is rarely pretty. Mascara in and around your eyes. Lipstick on your face. Your eye shadow smashed around the eye. It almost looks like you have a black eye.
In short, you look like something from a horror movie.
Your eyes are swollen, red, irritated and are sore.
Another problem with sleeping without removing your foundation / powder / blush: Your skin cannot slough dead skin cells, so there is a high risk of clogging the skin pores, which is likely to result in pimples.
Once the damage is done (and it will, you are only human), follow these 7 simple steps to minimize the consequences of falling asleep with your makeup on:
Your evening skin-care routine takes only 3 minutes. It should never take more than that!
Slip-ups will happen, but it’s worth it to be as consistent as possible to and remember your skin care routine every day!
And one last tip ...
Finish your skin-care routine in the evening BEFORE you lie on the couch. Why wait until it becomes a battle against sleep?
