Is it bad to leave your makeup on?

One third of women don’t take the time to remove their makeup before slipping under the covers for the night. Forgivable habit or one to break?

SKIP THE MAKEUP REMOVER… AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Bad news: it’s absolutely essential to remove your makeup every night, regardless of how late it is or how tired you are. Otherwise, your skin will show the signs…

  • Imperfections. Because makeup, sebum and pollution stay on your skin, the pores can’t breathe at night. The result? They dilate and become more visible or they become blocked: hello pimples and blackheads!
  • Loss of radiance. Dirt and residue prevent dead skin from sloughing off naturally, so it accumulates, forming a sort of dull screen that makes your complexion greyish.
SKIP THE MAKEUP REMOVER… AT YOUR OWN RISK!
  • Increased risk of irritation. Build-up of daily residue causes the skin to form patches and redness. Skin conditions like acne and rosacea can also intensify.
  • Accelerated ageing. The presence of residual impurities alters the layer of water and natural oils that help the epidermis act as a barrier. As a result, your skin becomes more easily dehydrated and more vulnerable to micro-inflammation… the perfect recipe for early signs of ageing.
