If You Always Fall Asleep In Your Makeup, Here’s What You Should Do The Next Morning

By Kelly Wilson

It doesn’t make much sense when I say it out loud, but taking off my makeup before bed feels like it requires more than double the amount of effort it takes to apply that morning. That being said, I’m not perfect, so even though I know better, there have been plenty of nights where I accidentally, and even purposely, neglected to take off my makeup. The (semi) good news? It happens! The bad news? It really shouldn’t.

On the surface, all you’ll see after a full night’s sleep and full face of makeup is a bit of smearing here, there, and raccoon eyes blinking back at you in the mirror. Unfortunately, though, looks can be deceiving, and what appears to be just a run of mascara, could actually be the visual signs of skin damage. Here’s what to do as soon as you wake up with a full face of makeup.

1. Remove Your Makeup

The first step is probably the most obvious here, but the first order of business after a full night’s sleep all dolled up is to strip your skin of all the cosmetic gunk hanging around from the night before. Where to start? Always at the eyes.

Dr. S Manjula Jegasothy, MD of the Miami Skin Institute told,

Many eye shadows contain quartz and mica, which are highly irritating to eyelid skin and can
concentrate in the fold, releasing dark particles into the eye for days later. This can cause
chronic irritation to the corneal surface, and cause chronic dry eye. Mascara formula can also
crumble and flake into the eye, causing these symptoms as well.

2. Wash Up

I learned about the double cleanse after some extensive research into a traditional Korean skincare routine. I may not have been able to keep up with all the many steps (especially on lazy nights), but this one stuck with me. Now that your makeup is off, wash your face with an oil-based cleanser (I love the Amorepacific Treatment Cleansing Oil Face & Eyes), applying the serum-like texture to a damp complexion, lather, and rinse, directly followed by a waterbased cleanser. The dual-action wash will ensure an optimal cleanse so no dirt or grime is left behind in on top of the skin.

3. Pamper

You enjoy being coddled and pampered when you are feeling particularly under the weather, right? Well, your skin would like to be nursed back to health with its own variation of TLC. Give compromised skin the spa treatment with a few minutes of masking. Access the damage and apply skincare accordingly, be it a sheet dripping with tightening serum, or a muddy putty powerful enough to extract impurities and dry out murky blemishes.

4. Moisturize

There is a reason you are told to drink a glass of water as soon as you wake up in the morning. After six to eight hours of beauty sleep, your skin is dehydrated AF. Add a full face of makeup to the equation, and your complexion will be reeling for relief. Liberally apply your favorite moisturizer for a burst of hydration asap. The Lano All Over Everywhere Multi-Cream is an excellent natural, super gentle balm that has been formulated with triple lanolin and milk to tenderly nurse skin back to health.

5. Change Your Bedding

Tossing and turning all night will inevitably lead to a few stains across your pillow, which a) is not cute and b) leaves traces of bacteria around to invade your next snooze. Dendy Engelmann, M.D., director of dermatologic surgery at Metropolitan Hospital told, if you don't launder your pillowcase and sheets the next day, you risk reverse contamination, so even if you end up washing your face before going to bed, that residual product will be on your pillowcase already and in effect will transfer back onto your skin when you lie down. I'm getting grossed out just thinking about it, TBH.

6. Go Natural For The Day

At this point, your skin has probably endured a full 24 hours or more of cosmetics. After you’ve taken the necessary steps to cleanse, let your skin breathe for a while. Take a day off from makeup application (you are gorgeous as is, anyway!), and restrain from picking at any blemishes or sensitive areas that may have
formed overnight.

You Can’t See The Weirdest Thing About This Bizarre Hair Until The Lights Are Off

By Kelly Wilson

As someone who tries (and usually fails) to keep up with the latest hair and makeup trends, I know how tirelessly cosmetics companies work to consistently up the ante. While crazy-colored hair was once reserved for Lady Gaga and mall goths, beauty gurus the world over adopted the trend last year, channelling their inner mermaids into shades of teal, purple, and cobalt blue.

But one mall-goth staple just released a line of dyes that does something incredible when the lights go out. Far beyond fuchsia strands and crimson locks, these high-voltage pigments by Manic Panic take wacky colors to an entirely new level.

Short Medium Long Color Seasonal Styling All Blogs 26 Tips to Help Protect Color-Treated Hair & Keep It Appearing Fabulous Along with proper
hair care as well as a bit of imagination, you can keep your color-treated hair looking vivid and radiant. This really is fantastic news since
70% of women inside the U.S. color their head of hair!

Hair color may make hair moreporous, which in turn causes it to absorb and release moisture content more easily. This can result in reduction in
color elements every time your own hair gets damp. Here are tips on how to keep all the moisture within your hair as possible, by preserving the
absolute best condition.

These colors are intense when the lights are on, but they’re nothing out of the ordinary at this point.

When the lights go down, however, they transform into something rave-worthy.

As highlights and lowlights do for standard styles, different values of glowing pigment add dimension to these neon looks.

Some leave it to stylists, but others harness their inner rave girls at home.

In any case, the outcome is a beauty trend that’s out of this world.

To preserve those essential oils that will help condition your color-treated hair, shampoo just two or three times per week, and never in excess
of every other day. This will help to your current color stay longer and help maintain overall health in your colored hair.

When you can go three or four days ahead of shampooing, even better. This will give the color plenty of time to set.

Wild, edgy hair styles often involve unnatural or “fashion” colors. A wild dye job can sometimes be a calling card to your personality. If you want
to delight in one of these funky hairstyles, but worry about your color diminishing, you’ll need to consider great care of ones own color-treated hair.
On the plus side, there are numerous perfect ways to accomplish that.

I can’t imagine having anything but solid black hair, so I give these people major props for taking their experimentation to such a vibrant extreme. It’s safe to say that this trend is best left to the bravest beauty mavens among us.
