A study by the British Skin Foundation has reported that 50% of people who wear makeup in the UK are damaging their skin by not removing their make up before going to bed. The report was a result of a survey by the foundation which revealed that 64% of non-washers are too tired to take it off, 43% have had too much to drink and 26% did not care.
The foundation also reported that 65% who suffer from dry skin also exfoliate their skin. The group further explained that exfoliating worsens dry skin. The survey also revealed that 46% of the British public are currently paying over £7 for their moisturizer, when a cheaper (£3), non-branded product bought from a reputable retail outlet does the same job.
The foundation maintains that consumers are not as educated when it comes to caring for their skin. It offers tips for care at www.respectyourskin.co.uk.
