what falling asleep in makeup does to your skin

Realistically, it will happen to all of us at one point or another. Maybe you had a crazy long day at the office and you want nothing more than to plop down onto your warm, comfy bed. Or maybe you went out with friends and the evening ran crazy long. There is always a reason to skip this step. Trust me – I have come up with more than a few excuses of my own! However, falling asleep in your makeup can affect the health and overall appearance of your skin. So, what does it actually do?

See, the perfumes in your collection do more than smell good...they are opportunities to highlight your personality.
