Feeling your best is something that we all understand, and what you do in order to achieve that is even more understandable. One of the things that most women do in order to feel their best is to invest in makeup that works with their skin, enhances their features and makes them feel beautiful. From eyeliner to foundation, there are so many different products that we use directly on our skin, which is also one of the most sensitive parts of our body.

At Ona Skincare, we offer a selection of services that allow for your skin to look its absolute best, and we do that so that you can feel your absolute best. That being said, we want to do everything that we can to ensure that our clients are absolutely informed on things that can be done to keep their skin healthy and glowing.

Today we’re going to touch on a topic that relates both to methods of feeling confident, and a few of the things that can happen when makeup isn’t taken off at the end of the day. Our blog post today is going to be dedicated to the removal of makeup.

Downsides of Makeup

As we mentioned before, makeup is a very common method of making oneself feel great. As a team, we are always sharing tips, brands, and techniques that we have fallen in love with, so we get it. However, there are also plenty of downfalls to makeup when it isn’t used properly. To name a few, clogged pores, wrinkles and infections are all issues that makeup can cause, so it’s extremely important that it’s removed at the end of every day. Below are a few of the things that can happen if you don’t remove your makeup before going to bed at night.


Something that we mentioned above was clogged pores. This is one of the main issues that can lead to some of the undesirable skin issues that people see with their skin. Makeup covers up the pores, which not only makes it difficult for your pores to breathe and push out any dirt or grime that the body produces, but it creates the dirty pores from an external product.

When makeup isn’t removed, dirty pores wind up becoming inflamed. These are the red blotches that we see when breakouts occur, but even when the pores aren’t inflamed they are clogged, leading to breakouts.

Appear Older

There are so many skin care products that are designed to make skin look as young and healthy as possible, and while they surely could provide some results, the little things that you do on a daily basis could provide you with the same results. When you don’t remove the makeup that you have on, you’re not providing your skin with the care that it needs. In doing so, your skin will look much older than it would if you took it off on a regular basis.

An Infection

One of the more severe results of not removing your makeup is the chance of an infection. While it isn’t the most common issue that people see happen when they don’t remove their makeup, it’s still entirely a possibility. This type of reaction is more likely if you already have an open cut or abrasion on your face. For example, a breakout that has already lead to an inflamed pore or a pimple, when not cleaned out at the end of the day, could leave your skin open to an infection.

The severity of an infection could depend on the open abrasion, as well as the time since it’s been cleaned and the ingredients and pollutants that your skin has been exposed to since the last time it was cleaned. It’s important to remember that your skin is the first barrier that protects our body in terms of things that can cause an infection, so we need to ensure that it’s strong and healthy so that it can do so.

These aren’t the only things that can happen when you fail to remove makeup at the end of the day, but they are some of the ones that we see the most. If you are struggling to make a note of removing your makeup regularly, do your best to set a timer or start setting a routine at the end of the day that includes it. After a while, you won’t feel good going to be unless your face has been cleaned.
