ASK AK: Hotstyle Beauty Question of the Day

Posted By: Angela Kelly · 3/4/2013 3:32:00 PM

Question: Is it really a bad idea to go to sleep with a face full of makeup on?

Answer: Absolutely Yes! Free radicals from pollution during the day settle onto our skin and cause cellular damage that can cause wrinkles.  If you don't clean your face, the damage continues as you sleep.  Makeup, surface oil, perspiration, and dead skin cells will clog pores and cause breakouts.  If you're too pooped from partying, keep simple face wipes that can be found at your local drug stores near your night stand for quick clean results.

It's a new year and of course you have some resolutions to renew yourself.  Here are some quick tips that can help you become a better you in 2013:

Face solutions for the ladies:

Use daily sponges to apply makeup and clean/rinse your makeup brushes after use.

Beauty solutions for the ladies:

Keep your makeup fresh! Sharpen eye and lip pencils; change your mascara frequently; and if you haven't used make up in years or even months then get rid of it!  Also, keep those eyebrows trimmed and your lashes looking their best.  If mascara does not give you the lashes that you desire, try Novalash extensions by our very own Beauty Blogger Angela Kelly.
