Slept with makeup on? Here’s what you should do in the morning

Sleeping with makeup on is a big no-no. It is one of the biggest blunders that make a dermatologist squirm. But, for some reason, if you have slept with a full face of makeup, you need to immediately reconcile with your skin.
Here are some steps that you need to follow in the morning
Remove the makeup
Naturally, the first thing you have to do is remove it. For this, you must use cleansing milk or a makeup remover. You can even use a natural oil like olive, or baby oil — whatever suits your skin better. Wash your face with a mild face wash.
Tone your skin
You absolutely need to tone your skin. That is ideally the next step. Use a toner that is alcohol-free. If you have rose water at home, nothing better. It will help remove any and all traces of residue makeup.
Move on to mild exfoliation next. This will ensure the pores on your skin are cleansed and all the impurities are thoroughly removed. But remember to be gentle while unclogging the skin. You must use cleansing milk or a makeup remover first thing.
Pamper with a mask
Use a face mask to pamper your skin. When the skin has gone through all the aforementioned steps, it deserves some love and attention. A good face mask will nourish the skin and make it come alive. You can either make your mask at home or use a sheet mask for the same.
Last but definitely not least — a nice, long massage to get the blood flowing. For this, you can apply some facial oil and run your fingers gently for five to eight minutes.
