Bumps. The experts point out that sleeping in mascara or in eyeliner won’t cause wrinkles, but will cause the calcified bumps that Lynch had on her eyelids. Known as hordeolums, the bumps appear as a result of clogged oil gland.
Removal. “Mascara and eyeliner can be rubbed by your pillow and end up in your eyes, which can lead to significant eye irritation. I recommend keeping makeup remover pads by your bed, to wipe across your face and eyes on those nights when you don’t have time to properly cleanse before getting into bed,” continued Schweiger, via the Huffington Post.
Wash your face. So there you have it— sleeping in your makeup is that bad for you, and certainly not worth the extra five minutes you get to be in bed when you don’t remove it. Unless you want to wake up with your eyelids glue together, you should follow doctor’s orders and get to scrubbing!
