Slept with makeup on? Here’s how to reverse the damage

Looking for quick ways to fix the damages caused by falling asleep with your makeup? This article might help.

So you committed the biggest skin sin. You failed to remove your makeup before going to bed. Perhaps last night's party was fun but that's not the case for your skin. You made your skin suffer and you know it. But you're not alone and you're definitely not the first. And it is for this reason that we have your back!

If you google, you'll see horror stories of what happened to people when they fell asleep with makeup on. But we won't let that happen to you. Here are some quick and easy tips to undo the damage.

First things first, clean your face.

When it comes to giving your skin a good refreshing cleanse, we rely on the double cleanse method. You won't get the same outcomes from your face wash alone as you will from an oil-based cleanser. Begin with taking some cleansing balm/oil and massage it onto the skin. This unclogs your pores and dissolves all the remnants of makeup, dirt and grime.

Next up is a water-based cleanser to give your skin a deep cleanse. Your skin is already stripped of its good nutrients so make sure to choose a hydrating and mild formula such as the Foxtale Daily Duet Face Wash. It is a pH-balanced face wash that has skin-loving ingredients that support the skin’s natural barrier. It is easy to use and doesn’t require much effort.

Give your skin a detox.

Now take a close look at your skin and examine the damage. Does it feel dry or oily or do you have breakouts? Pick a face mask as per your skin concern. If you cannot figure it out, just go for a clay-based mask or some good old Multani mitti DIY face mask. Remember, the goal is to restore your skin's lost glow while soothing, brightening, and revitalizing it.

Repair your skin barrier.

Between the harsh makeup that seeped into pores and the thorough cleansing to repair the damage, your skin has gone through a lot. Your skin barrier needs to be rebuilt right away. The best ingredients are used in the Foxtale Ceramide Supercream Moisturizer, which does the job perfectly. It gives your skin the nourishment it requires the most at this time. It is gentle on the skin, applies smoothly and imparts a healthy glow as well.

Shield your skin.

Now more than ever, you need to use sunscreen. Your skin requires as much protection as possible. Make sure to pick a sunscreen that doesn’t clog your pores, is lightweight and provides broad spectrum protection like the Foxtale Mattifying Cover-Up Sunscreen. It is also infused with niacinamide which imparts a subtle glow to your skin. Without much effort, you can now have your lost radiance back!
