Damage Control: If you have fallen asleep in your makeup, or have just now realized the drawbacks of a bad habit, you should do some damage control. First, if your eyes are irritated, it is important to go to a doctor to ensure that your vision is safe. Once you are sure your eyes are fine, it is important to help your skin heal. Vitamin C serums are designed to help repair damaged skin cells and reduce inflammation. Meanwhile, moisturizers with hyaluronic acid will help rehydrate your skin and avoid the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
In an ideal world, everyone who wears makeup would have ample time and energy to take their makeup off before bed. However, as this is not an ideal world, you can help reverse the damage from sleeping with your makeup on- just don’t make it a habit.
