Are You Committing This Skin Aging Makeup Mistake?
Have we not all done this before? Late night, exhausted, going to sleep with makeup on... Well, did you know that actually sleeping with your makeup on can cause skin to age prematurely?
"Sleeping with makeup on is not a good idea," Dr. Wee tells us. "First, makeup can trap dirt and environmental pollutants inside the skin, and this type of environmental stress can result in increased free radicals which can cause DNA mutations, collagen degradation, and, over time, can result in premature aging."
"If you don't cleanse your face, dirt and dead skin cells are not removed," explains celebrity dermatologist Dr. Annie Chiu. "They stay on the skin, clogging pores and leading to chronic inflammation in the form of pimples."
Need proof? In 2013, the Daily Mail conducted an experiment in which one woman stopped washing her face for an entire month and simply reapplied her makeup over her unwashed skin each morning. The results: experts said she literally aged herself by 10 years — all because she skipped cleansing for 30 days.
