Lovely dresses with glamorous makeup are not uncommon these days. Every girl desires to look pretty in her own fashion sense. But remember, never ever sleep with your makeup on. You must always remove your makeup before going to bed. During sleep the skin repairs and energises itself. The makeup still applied during sleep would keep the pores clogged thus not letting it re-energise after dealing the day’s pollution and heat.

So, next time you come across a skin issue remember to take care of these few little things. Remember a healthy body lies in a healthy skin. Till then take care!!
