Here's what you need to do if you've accidentally slept with makeup on

Even women who know nothing about makeup know that no matter what happens, they're never supposed to sleep with makeup on. And here you are, committing this sin like it won't matter at all. Alright, fine you slept with it on accidentally because you were too tired or too lazy or just plain drunk and didn't have the energy to take it off. But by now, all that bacteria on your skin might be having a party of their own. So, if you've just awoken from your slumber and realised the horror you've put your skin through, here are some things you can do before any damage is caused to your skin. Take a look.

Facial mists can work wonders in getting rid of any sort of dirt or impurity from your face and can also help balance the pH levels in your skin. You could opt for something simple like rosewater since it'll truly help add a glow to your face and will make it look clean instantly.


03/6Double Cleanse!

Double Cleanse!

The very first thing you need to do is to opt for a makeup remover and get rid of all that makeup from your face. Of course, that isn't going to be enough, so you need to follow it up with washing your face with a gentle cleanser. Once you've double cleansed your face you can rest assured that all the makeup is truly off of it.

Although this is the ideal time for you to put those chemical peels to use, if you've run out of one you can just opt for a regular scrub (Do use a cleanser with strong ingredients like AHAs or salicylic acid instead). Make sure to massage the scrub onto your face in soft circular motions. It'll help get rid of all the dirt and impurities from your skin and will also boost blood circulation.

Mask to the rescue

The next step is to opt for a mask of your choice or one based on your skin type. Just apply a thin layer of it and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Once done, rinse it off or take it off and you'll see just how much your skin is glowing. You could also opt for a sheet mask if you're in an ultimate cleanse mood.

The one thing you must remember to do after you're done cleansing your face is to make sure you moisturise it. So, opt for a moisturiser that best suits your skin type and gently rub some on your face in an upward motion. And now, your skincare routine is complete and hopefully, the damage is reversed.
