She woke up like this — literally! Kim Kardashian posted a gorgeous selfie on Feb. 23, but there was only one thing wrong with the pic — she went to sleep with a full face of makeup! Click below to read the harmful effects of sleeping with makeup and the best products to make sure you don’t make Kim’s skincare mistake!
Kim Kardashian ‘Woke Up Like This’ — Selfie After Sleeping With Makeup
Kim posted her selfie to her 26 million plus Instagram followers with the caption, “Ugh, I hate falling asleep with all of my makeup on!”
Granted, Kim looked amazing! Her lashes are everything and there was barely a smudge in sight, from her mascara down to her pretty pink nude lipstick, but sleeping with makeup on is horrible for your skin — especially when you have a Kardashian-level contour!
Sleeping With Makeup On: Is It Really That Bad?
Leaving makeup on your skin after one late night might not seem like a major deal, but over an extended period of time, the results are pretty horrific.
Sebum, the good oil in your skin that gets rid of dead skin cells and provides healthy moisture, builds up in pores blocked by makeup after just one night! Many women can see acne blemishes just a day or two after skipping a nightly cleansing.
Worst of all, if you make sleeping with makeup a habit, it ages your skin! At the end of the day, your face is not only carrying your makeup, but all of the environmental pollutants that you encounter during the day. These drive the production of free radicals (which age you) and can lead to premature wrinkling and blotchiness.
To make sure that you’re getting rid of all traces of makeup, try using a makeup remover like the highly reviewed Lancome Bi-Facial Double Action Makeup Remover.
If you’re too tired to cleanse, wipe a Neutrogena Make-Up Remover Cleansing Towelettes over your face. It’s Kim’s go-to towelette.
