So, what exactly is causing these results  from sleeping in your make-up? Mostly, free radicals. Free radicals from the environment (often in the form of pollution) remain on the skin when you do not clean your face properly at night. They cause collagen breakdown over time, which results in the development of fine lines, prematurely aged skin, and skin irritation.

Cleansing also helps prepare your skin for the other steps in your skincare program. We suggest you consider using a professional facial cleansing product.
