Leaving make-up on your skin before you go to bed can cause a number of problems that compromise skin health. It is not just your skin that is affected, however. It is also important to wash away any kind of eye make-up at the end of the day. Here are some of the reasons why it is essential.
Complications Caused by Leaving Eye Make-Up on at Night
- Leftover mascara can harden, and if you happen to rub your eyes while you sleep, your eyelashes could break off.
- Products like eyeliner and eye shadow can scratch the skin and surface of the eye while sleeping. Eye shadows are made up of tiny crystals and sand-like materials that are unsafe for the skin if left on for a long period of time.
- Eye make-ups like eye shadow can harden and absorb helpful minerals and oils, which results in dried out skin. Skin that lacks moisture can cause wrinkles and imperfections, especially the thin and delicate skin around the eyes.
Sometimes it is hard to come home from a night out and remember to wash all of your make-up off. It’s an additional step that gets in between you and your rest time when you are already exhausted. It is, however, an essential one for your skin health.
