Why You Shouldn’t Leave Makeup On Overnight And What To Do If You Have

SUMMER SKINCARE SIN #3 – Wearing makeup 24/7

It’s 1am on Saturday night and you’ve just got home from yet another Christmas party. Your feet are killing you and you’re absolutely exhausted so you make a beeline straight to bed. Sound familiar? It’s a pretty good summary of my December that’s for sure!

Whilst at the time jumping straight into bed after my 4th Christmas do in one week seemed like a great idea at the time, waking up the next day to crusty makeup and dull skin wasn’t so fun (I think the shouts of shock from my housemates also punctuated this!) We’re all guilty of having left our make-up on over night, but if you’ve spent all day and night in makeup over your silly season, I’m betting your skin needs some R&R.

Leaving your make-up on overnight is definitely a big no-no as this is the time when your skin repairs itself and gets itself ready for the next day. By keeping your makeup on, you essentially suffocate your skin and slam on the brakes of your skin’s repairing process. So what do you do when you have been naughty and not given your skin a break from make-up?

Botáni’s Olive Skin Serum is the answer! Packed with Olive Squalene, in fact 99.8% of the formulation, the Olive Skin Serum is the antioxidant booster that will bring your skin back to life. It’s natural affinity with your skin’s in-built moisturisers means that it penetrates into the deepest layers of your skin to not only provide hydration, but to assist in repairing damage to the skin. Personally tried and tested, I can assure you that the Olive Skin Serum will pep your skin up after even the biggest of nights!

Moral of the story is, when you get home grab a damp cotton pad and add a few drops of the Olive Skin Serum and spend 5 minutes removing your makeup. However, if you do make the mistake of leaving your makeup on all night, make sure you have a bottle of Olive Skin Serum handy to make amends with your skin the next morning!

Been a little lazy over the silly season with removing your makeup? Feel free to share below (I promise I won’t judge!)
