Millions of women have been going to bed at least once a week without removing their makeup. Whether it’s because of sheer exhaustion from a busy day or insecurity

Anna Pursglove wanted to show women once and for all that sleeping with your makeup on is not worth destroying your skin
Anna conducted a month-long experiment
in which she went to bed every night without removing any makeup from her face. Prior to beginning her experiment, Anna had her skin observed at a 3D Imaging Studio. After the four weeks, Anna would check back in to see what has changed.
By the end of her experiment, Anna’s skin began developing red patches, her lips dried out and the corners of her mouth had been painfully cracking. One of her eyes had even swollen shut early on due to a reaction with the mascara. When Anna visited back for another 3D imaging scan, experts had estimated that her skin had biologically aged ten years in just one short month. Aside from the visible changes, Anna’s moisture levels in her skin had dropped 20% and saw a 5% increase in the size of her pores. Her skin surface had worsened by 10% on the right side of her face and 20% on the left, the side she sleeps on. Luckily, none of the effects are permanent as long as Anna reestablishes daily cleansing and moisturizing.
Practicing healthy skin care habits is critical to maintain youthful and healthy skin
. Makeup is meant for use during the day while you are out and about. Do not take it into bed with you! All it takes is ten minutes to wash off the makeup. Clogging your pores and drying out your skin is not worth wearing makeup to bed no matter what.

There are already a million reasons to get your sleep at night. The lack of sleep has already been linked to problems like anxiety, obesity, depression and even cancer. Plus, nobody likes going through their day tired in the first place. If I have to go through another day of unhealthy amounts of caffeine and hours of fighting to keep my eyelids open, I may just pull a pillow out of my drawer and plop down beneath my desk.
Well now a good night’s sleep is even more important. Estee Lauder recently sponsored a new study
by the UH Case Medical Center in Cleveland on the effects of a lack of sleep on skin care
Finally, proof to what we have all been debating for so long. “This research shows for the first time, that poor sleep quality can accelerate signs of skin aging and weaken the skin’s ability to repair itself at night,” said the vice president of Estee Lauder, Dr. Daniel Yarosh.
60 women between the ages of 30 and 49 were observed as part of the study. The women were divided into two groups; those who weren’t getting a healthy amount of sleep and those who were. Each woman’s skin was carefully evaluated and put through several different skin tests including exposure to UV light. Women who weren’t getting enough sleep at night were showing more signs of aging as well as uneven pigmentation and weakened skin elasticity.
Perfect, another thing to worry about if you are not getting enough sleep. In today’s hectic and busy world, it is often hard to find some time to rest, but you cannot forget to make time to just kick back and get some rest. Even spoil yourself with a day at the spa
once in a while. Stress and sleep deprivation can take a toll on your body and could be causing you to age a lot quicker. Most experts recommend that adults sleep for seven to eight hours every night. You will go through your day with much more confidence and beautiful looking skin
There has recently been an increasing number of men seeking out plastic surgery to help achieve a more youthful appearance. Last year
men underwent nearly one million cosmetic procedures, an increase of 106% from 1997.
In 2012, the five most common cosmetic procedures for men were rhinoplasty
, eyelid surgery
, breast reduction and facelifts
. Why all the sudden changes? Well, there are a few reasons.
The way our culture views men is changing
Men are beginning to care more about the way that they look. American society is going from the days of the scruffy cowboys and bearded mountain men to the modern, clean-shaven and well-dressed businessmen. Rather than the rough ‘n’ tough John Waynes of the past, men are now being more influenced by the well-groomed Ryan Goslings of today’s youth-driven America.
It’s just good business
As society continues to be more influenced by the youth, so is American business. The CEOs are getting younger and younger and youth has become more important than ever. Just take Facebook’s 29 year old CEO Mark Zuckerberg. There are many others like him. The arena has changed, and men are beginning to seek out plastic surgery as a means to compete in an economy where youth is a growing factor.
Cosmetic surgery is more socially accepted for men
In 2011, a survey
found that 49 percent of men approve of cosmetic surgery. Men are no longer as embarrassed to go under the knife for a younger appearance. Having sports super stars like Wes Welker
coming out confidently about their procedures can also surely help a man’s ego.
Many new technologies have been developed to rejuvenate the aging face. The use of injectable products to eliminate wrinkles and restore fullness to the skin has increased exponentially, due to sun damage, heredity, and age contributing to frown-lines and wrinkles. Fillers are a great anti-aging tool that can diminish wrinkles and return a more youthful appearance by replacing lost volume. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm are the most commonly used worldwide and have an excellent safety profile. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the dermis and is responsible for maintaining skin water balance. Juvederm can rejuvenate the face quickly, safely, and cost-effectively, without surgery.
The difference is seen instantly and lasts anywhere from 6 months to a year.
At the V-Spa I always encourage my skin care patients to maintain the results of any treatment or procedure they have done with a home regimen. The number one prescribed product by Doctor Quereshy and I for maintaining and prolonging the results of Juvederm, is Skin Medica’s TNS Essential Serum.
