Did you know that going to bed with your makeup on can age your skin up to seven
While we really have no clue how anyone has come up with the magical ‘seven times’
factor, there may actually be some serious truth behind it.
Most makeup contains artificial colors and other ingredients that may clog the pores.
This can cause damaging chemical reactions in and on top of the skin, and can even
interfere with your hormones. Resulting in congested skin and allergies, and of course contribute to skin aging, it seems it may really be best to thoroughly remove your makeup before bed.
If you really can’t or just won’t, get into this habit, look for makeup companies that offer
more natural and less harmful ingredients.
We LOVE Revision’s Intellishade, color-matching, tinted moisturizer, for its sun protection factor (SPF45), great anti-aging benefits, and fairly decent coverage.
Your skin is your primary defender and protective barrier to the harsh environment we live in. If you don’t help it ‘reset’ on a daily basis to purge any damage and inflammation, your defenses weaken and unwanted changes to your gene patterns occur to compensate.
Leaving makeup on overnight without cleaning your skin leads to greater build-up of damaging agents, which accumulate and accelerate the aging process.
Hannah Hatcher, global educator for make-up company, Jane Iredale says, “Washing your face before going to sleep is essential in the fight against aging skin. Our makeup can allow free radicals that we are exposed to during everyday life, to cling to our skin. If we do not wash our faces before we go to bed at night, our skin is exposed to free radical damage that can prematurely age the skin as we sleep.”
