To pull an all-nighter occasionally is fine but if it becomes your routine, then you must reconsider it. Your body requires 6-8 hour sleep every day, you can occasionally break the rule, as it would not affect your body much. However, if you make it your habit, it is too bad for your overall health, especially in the long run. Lack of sleep brings in many defects in your immune system and many other processes, including deterioration of your skin.

Using handkerchief or a pillow treated with toxic laundry detergent


You use a tissue, handkerchief or a napkin to clean your face many a times during the day. You only think that you are cleaning your face and fail to realize that the hankie you are using has been washed with a detergent that had too many chemicals in it. You sleep with your face on a pillow whose cover was also washed using same toxic detergent. Both these cases are bad for your skin health, so start avoiding these in any case.

Sleeping with the makeup on

Sometimes you are not in a condition to take off your makeup after a late night party, and the other times your day’s hard work does not allow putting even least amount of effort to take makeup off your face. Makeup does not allow your skin to breathe and when skin pores open while sweating, the makeup enters the pores and harms your skin.

Beware of this probability and no matter what, ensure you wash your face before sleeping. The same goes for your workout, as you should always clean your face before starting a workout, or else, the makeup seeps into your skin when you perspire and a cycle of skin troubles can start.
