Summer nights are often exciting, late and oh-so-steamy! I love summer, it’s my favorite time of year. While we are living our best carefree lives at the beach, out in the club, traveling the world or sucking face with your summer love we can’t forget to care for our skin.

Sleeping in your makeup can result in exposure to the free radicals in the environment, because your makeup holds on to pollution and grime that comes in contact with your skin throughout the day then at night absorbs into your skin. The free radicals cause the breakdown of healthy collagen, which results in fine lines on the skin in addition, makeup can clog your pores while you sleep which cause breakouts. During the day you accumulate a lot of oxidative stress and sleeping in your makeup you doesn’t give your skin a chance to recover, which can lead to accelerated aging, acne and dullness.
It’s not just about your skin, sleeping in eye makeup repeatedly may result in the clogging of the tiny hair follicles and oil glands on your eyelids. When clogged, bacteria can build up and cause inflammation, irritation and infection.
Be sure you clean your skin before bed and also - wash your legs too!
