Wash Your Face Now! What Makeup Does When You Don’t.

29 Jul


Today I read a story about a women who did not wash her make up off before she went to sleep for a month and what happens to your face after that trial run.  This story horrified me, so I ran out and bought an all day face wash immediately after work.  I have scrubs and pads that removes my eye make up but not a real face wash.  So before I give you the link love to the story on The Daily Mail and why I was horrified, I will tell you a little story about myself.

When I was 13 I started getting acne that was so horrible, I had zits the size of nickles or larger that would like to plant either right under my eyes or next to my nose to look like the wicked witch.  I had this pepperoni pizza face for 3 years. I did the Retina A and other alcohol based treatments, it made my face flake and dried out and red and itchy so bad.  Finally instead of going back to the dermatologist I went to my family doctor, and he said to just leave it alone and not put anything on it.  He was right.  Once I hit around 17 my face was so clear that I didn’t even get the rouge pimple.

Now with that you would think that I would wash my face like something fierce.  I am embarrassed to say that I don’t, I’m usually really tired after work and don’t hardly take off my make up even thou I wear bare minerals during the day, and I mainly wash it in the morning.  But now, now I will never ever do it again. After reading what this woman endured with the little white bumps around her eyes and how it aged her by 10 years.

This is a great read for anyone:  The Daily Mail Post
