Do you make sure to remove makeup and sleep all clean?

A pimple just popped out and I had to get out of bed to refrain form fidgeting with it. Now I remember, I forgot to clean my face yesterday night!! How I hate to remove the kohl, face grime, lip gloss. Luckily, I am not much of amake up person! Are you particular about removing makeup and sleep fresh?

I rarely wear make-up but I do sometimes when I go out for the night. Unfortunately when I come back I'm usually to tired or sometimes drunk so I forget to take off my make-up. Not good for the skin I know!

Hi mimpi, my make up is pretty basic but I like to wash my face with soap and water at night at least if there's no water to shower with. So most nights recently washing my face involves a bottle of water as there's invariably no water. It's so sticky here now with the humidity that I'll be sticking it out until the water comes back for a shower, rather than sleeping.

Hi mimpi the weather can be pleasant for most of the year but with blisteringly hot weather in August. For some reason that started in July this year and hasn't stopped yet and the humidity has risen every day to levels not known before and it exhausting to say the least as it saps all the energy. On the plus side the water just came back on and I got a lovely shower whilst my son made me coffee. Bliss.

Yes, I do! I think it is very important to give your skin that relaxing time out. I live to sleep fresh. I think that if you drink more water and stay away from greasy foods the amount pimples you get might come down.

Most definitely! And I remove my entire clown suit too! The only thing I sometimes keep on are my huge red, yellow and blue shoes, but this is only on special occasions when I feel there's a chance I might get lucky! Nothing spices up the bedroom activities faster than a gleaming pair of colourful clown shoes!

I don't know why but I am really quite fussy about this...lol... I have a whole ritual going to bed of washing my face and moisturizing and all that.. my husband actually laughs at me because I have to feel all fresh and clean before I got to bed. What is he complaining about? What does he want in his bed, a dirty panda eyed slob? Eh? Men are so ungrateful :0D

Hi mimpi! I do sometimes forget that I am wearing makeup because I only wear it when I am going out for an appointment! And since lately I don't go out everyday I don't wear makeup everyday so that makes it easier to forget when I am wearing it! So there are some nights that I do forget to take it off, especially my eye makeup! And my boyfriend is always complaining that I get it all over the pillowcase (he does the laundry)! I take my eye makeup off with baby oil because I am allergic to most makeup removers except the ones that cost a fortune! So sometimes I just forget when I'm washing my face for bed and the eye makeup is still partly on in the morning!

I often only have eye makeup on, so I don't feel obligated to remove that if I"m tired. If I have foundation on, I remove that because it clogs my pores.

I do not have to remove makeup to sleep fresh, as I don't wear any makeup except for lip moisturizer which is sleep-in-able...and nail polish. Drat, Halloween is coming soon and I am out of glow-in-the-dark nail polish! Gotta keep my eye's open for a sale, although I think a myLot friend told me that Sally's sells it affordably year round.

I keep a store version of Dove Exfoliating face wipes and clean my face with them morning, noon and night. I love having a clean face. I do not get pimples anymore, since I gave up sugar and corn syrup filled products.

I know exactly what you are talking about. Many late nights out falling into bed and waking up like a circus clown and then the pimple the very next day always going to happen. Make up is so yuck to wear at the best of times. I recommend dont use it is the easiest have your eyelashes tinted and throw a bit of suncreen tinted moisturiser on and some medical lip balm and you are set.

Hello Mim. Yessss, this was a habit our parents always encouraged...go to bed clean! To this day, I just cannot go to bed, however tired I am, without first washing my face, brushing my teeth, and all the things like that, even if I haven't worn makeup during the day. Did you zap that zit yet?? Karen

I can't stand wearing makeup any longer than I absolutely have to. It comes right off whenever I get home, and I make sure to thoroughly clean my face in order to ensure that none of it stays on. Most of the time, I don't bother with makeup...if someone doesn't like the way I look without it, that's just too darned bad. It's their problem, not mine.

No, I don't normally remove my makeup before falling asleep. I don't wear heavy makeup to begin with, but still, I know it should be removed. I always say I'm going to make a change for the better and wash my face very well before going to bed. However, I make this resolution during the day time, and by the time night comes, I'm ususally so tired that I just don't care anymore, and I usually just go to bed with makeup still on.

I can't sleep with make-up still in my face.I have to remove my make-up.I hate getting pimples.I have to use a cold cream and facial wash to remove the dust and dirt my face have accumulated during the day.it actually helps to keep my skin clear,soft,and smooth.

I don’t wear make up all the time because I work at home so nine times out of ten I don’t bother unless I am going out. I do have to remove all traces of the stuff before I go to sleep or I can’t sleep; it’s the same as brushing my teeth, no brushing no sleep!

I always wash my face or remove the make-up before going to bed because if I'm not, pimples will start to say hello, lol. I don't put make-up often and when I do, I will remove it as soon as I can.
