Do You Sleep Naked?


I'll admit, when I was approached to participate in Swisspers Sleep Naked Campaign I was a little taken aback. Sleep, what? As a passionate and committed connoisseur of silk PJ's, I naturally felt completely unqualified... and obviously overdressed. It wasn't until I learned the true meaning of the campaign, that I realized it was actually promoting something I've always been extremely passionate about... nightly make up removal. I may not be an expert at putting on my makeup, but I've always been an advocate for taking it off. As someone who has been riddled with bad skin for a large majority of my life, (thank you stress) I've finally gotten control of my skin and have become very passionate about taking care of it. Removing your makeup before climbing into bed will not only reduce future breakouts, but slow down that nasty aging process I'm suddenly becoming more terrified of. What is your stance on sleeping naked? (Side note: Sadly I have zero connection to the utterly fabulous vanities displayed above... Just pictures of my future dream house via Pinterest)

Removing your makeup every night will...
  • Reduce the size of your pores.
  • Prevent skin inflammation that's associated with signs of aging.
  • Keep the chemicals in your makeup from soaking into your pores.
  • Allow the natural shedding process to begin, keeping your skin from looking dull.
  • Prevent the skin of your eyelids from drying out.

  1. I am loving the vanity! Putting it on my dream list too! I think it is super important to remove your make-up before going to bed but I have to say that sometimes I'm too sleepy or lazy! urgh! I do keep wet make-up remover wipes so it will go fast to remove my make-up. I wear mascara and that's pretty much it so that is not so miuch to remove!

  2. I never skip my " evening cleaning" ritual either.
    Original campaign, but probably quite useful

  4. Yes! I also believe in the importance of thoroughly removing your make up before going to bed because I want to focus on improving my complexion rather than trying to always hide it under a load of make up!

    But I have to admit, the images caught my eye before the title of this post haha. I LOVE MIRRORED FURNITURES!!

  11. I always go to sleep naked, haha. No seriously, I always remove my make up before I go to sleep. I think it's way better for your skin when you do take all the make up off. Otherwise my skin feels greasy and sticky, so I'm a big fan of sleeping naked! :-)

  18. I always sleep 'naked'. I really hate it when I wake up and I look in the mirror and I see the make up all over my face. It's also much better for your skin to clean it before you go to sleep so I must say I really love sleeping naked!

  24. This is such an important topic to discuss for girls who wear makeup (myself included). 'Sleeping naked' is a must, and I'm glad you provided what benefits come of it. Being educated on your skin, and knowing how the simple process of washing your face every night can bring about so many positives is the best advice for girls at any age!

  29. I am so passionate about skincare! One of my resolutions from 2012 was to get better about taking my makeup off every single night. And I'm so proud of myself for 100% sticking to that goal. And now, it's just habit. It's important to just make it routine and quick. Makeup remover wipe + eye makeup remover + exfoliating or gentle face wash + moisturizer! Love the sleep naked movement!

  32. I too am an advocate of "sleeping naked". I never miss washing my face before bed. On days when I am not doing anything I come straight home from work and remove my makeup. I use makeup remover wipes (similar to Ponds but an off brand), and clease my face with Neutrogena oil-free, grapefruit wash (on Allure Magazine's top items list). I suffer from adult acne so I have to keep things clean to avoid breakouts. I love anything by Neutrogena! I also use their spot treatment after cleansing to target trouble areas, and then I use a thick dark spot correcting cream/moisturizer by Ambi.

  34. great post! I've been seeing this trending on twitter, too. I always make a point of taking off my makeup before bed - in fact, I wash my face twice to be sure I've gotten everything off, and then use an eye makeup remover. And of course, moisturize, moisturize, moisturize :)

  42. i always take off my makeup before bed, but mainly because I am afraid the mascara will fall into my eye balls & blind me. silly i know, but effective haha. One beauty trick I always use is to put lip moisturizer on before my lipstick. it keeps my lips moisturized all day & holds the color!

  44. The first thing that I do when I get home (if I'm wearing makeup) is remove. 1. Beacause I usually workout immediately after work and 2. beacause Mama always told me not to sleep with my makeup on & her skin's flawless!

  45. I moisturize my skin A LOT and take off my makeup as soon as I'm home to let my skin breathe longer. This has helped me out so much! Also washing my pillowcases and face towel weekly to keep them clean :)

  46. I've been fortunate enough to have never had bad skin, so I never realized the importance of removing my makeup before bed. That is, until someone mentioned that is could speed up the aging process!

    I also discovered that washing my face and putting on moisturizer before bed helps me sleep easier - not sure why. It just feels nice to go to bed with a clean face!

  62. I don't understand how people fall asleep with their makeup on. I am extremely obsessed with washing my face. I just love the way it feels and putting on a fresh layer of moisturizer. I am all for this campaign, people don't understand how important it is to have a skincare regimen even if it is something as simple as washing your face with soap daily.

    ReplyDelete
  63. At the age of 12 my grandma bought my cousin and I our first Clinique 3 step kit. From that day forward, I have washed my face and moisturized twice a day. Granted the products have changed over time. I now like to use a mild scrub in the evening and mild paraben and scent free wash in the morning. I started using anti-aging night cream in college. If for some reason I can't actually wash my face, I at least use a make-up remover cloth. I even use them before going to the gym after work. Who wants to be the girl with foundation running down her face?!

  64. What a great giveaway! As a young girl, my mother stressed the importance of taking off your make up every night. I wash my face, use an astringent, & a night cream. I've recently started adding in an eye cream. Whether young or old, an eye cream can cover up fine lines and wrinkles in older women or puffiness & dark circles in younger women who may not have gotten a lot of sleep the night before.

    I have found that baby wipes work best in a pinch if you have nothing else to take your makeup off. They even take off all eye makeup. Who new a product to keep your babies bum fresh can also keep your face fresh. Great blog! Your pictures make me happy cuase they are taken from my home! I grew up in California!

  79. My beauty tip is to wash and take care of your face in the morning! I think it is almost as important as washing your face at night. Even after sleeping, your face gets dirt on it. By washing it in the morning you feel clean, refreshed, and as good as new! :)

  85. So my grandmother taught me a great trick to take off eye make up and long lasting lipstick. I just take my Swisspers exfoliating pads and add some vaseline and rub it on my eyes. Use one pad per eye and a separate one for your lips. It is safe and works so well! If you put a little too much, just rinse your face with water. I also recommend you take the make up off then cleanse your face and moisturize before going to bed! Such a great trick right? & it is way cheaper and better than make up removers.

  87. I love the message that is being sent out. A few years ago I would often times fall asleep with my makeup still on. Gross I know! It is so important to wash your face, exfoliate and moisturize. One of my favorite eye make up removers is Lancôme Bi-Facil.

  89. I totally agree, there is nothing more important for your skin than taking off your make-up before bed, I even make a huge effort after a late night out.
    I use a soft scrub to keep my skin nice and soft and also make sure I use a vitamin E hydrating toner every night!
    The thought of having wrinkly, pimply skin scares me into taking excellent care of my face!!!

  93. Thanks for sharing! I had never heard of the "Swisspers Sleep Naked Campaign" before, but I am quite intrigued. Melanoma runs in my family (my dad is a survivor), so I really try to protect and preserve my skin.

    I have always been a huge advocate for washing your face before bed. I usually remove my makeup with wipes, wash and exfoliate with the Olay Pro X system, and moisturize with Olay Total Effects Moisturizer. Oh- and drinks TONS of water :)
