Just Say No to Sleeping with Makeup

Since it’s national sleep month, we are here to encourage you to get your Zs, but before you do we also want you to hit up the bathroom, wash your face and clear your skin of pore-clogging makeup, apply a nightly serum, and then get your Zs. Here's why you should.

If you don’t, you’re doing some serious disservice to your skin by sleeping with your makeup on. Those poor pores. Treat your skin with love. Clean off your makeup before bed. Your skin does its best work at night.

1.     You are speeding up the aging process

You want beautiful, younger, glowing skin, right? One of the worst things you can do is sleep with your makeup on. The truth behind beautiful skin? It’s a complex interplay of a few different things. This includes quality skincare, holistic health, and not interfering with nighttime rejuvenation. If you want healthy skin that is not aging fast, sleeping with clean pores is one of the most effective strategies. Conversely, sleeping with makeup-drenched-pores is one of the fastest ways to age your skin.

2. Supplement Clean Skin with Us. #SleepWithAC #ACritual

Let’s say you invest in our quality skincare, Retinol Anti Wrinkle Serum and Retinol Advanced Firming Cream, two of our best-sellers and recommended staff favorites. If you are forgetful, busy, too tired (whatever the case may be) and sleep with makeup on, you are clogging your pores, trapping in oil, and speeding up the aging process. How? Simply because you did not cleanse those pores. Sleep is where your skin gets a chance to recover and actually reverse any damage done from environmental stressors like the sun and pollutants. Additionally, you can't apply a face serum on top of makeup. Clean your pores and nourish your skin with our quality ingredients and watch your skin transform by following that simple nightly ritual. #ACritual

Retinol Anti Wrinkle Serum is ideal for nighttime  

3. Cellular Repair Happens at Night. You Need Clean Pores.

Slow down your skin’s natural aging process by giving it a chance to engage in the natural cellular repair process that happens at night. This highly beneficial repair process happens during night because your skin is not busy defending itself against outside stressors. In order for it to function well, you need to give your pores oxygen to breathe, not makeup.

This November, we are encouraging you not to neglect the powerful skin-rejuvenating powers of sleep. But you must utilize sleep well: without makeup, enough hours, and of course engaging in exercise and healthy eating. These are all juicy components that will aid in getting quality sleep and obviously beautiful skin. Use #lovetheskinyouarein if you care about your skin and love #ACskincare.
