Health and Beauty Tip -- Don't Leave Makeup On

After a long day, you may not want to go to the trouble of removing all your makeup. If you're consistently leaving it on at bedtime, though, you'll be more prone to breakouts and clogged pores. If you simply don't have time, keep some cleansing wipes by your bed. A quick clean is better than none at all.
