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.
