During a conversation on E!’s Busy Tonight, helmed by Busy Philipps, Kim Kardashian made it seem like she has days where she doesn’t have an adequate mascara and foundation supply, despite the fact her younger sister has more than enough makeup to supply the entire country.
According to the mother-of-three, there are some days when she sleeps in the makeup she wore before, so as not to waste any of it, not only for money reasons but also because it saves time.
During a Question and Answer period, it was here where Busy found out about Kim’s nighttime habit. “Have you ever accidentally slept with your makeup on?” the host asked.
Kim told Philipps “all of the time,” adding there are situations where she tries to salvage her cosmetics for two days at the maximum. Unfortunately for Kim, however, skin doctors say that women – and men – should never sleep wearing makeup; it’s horrible for the skin.
In 2017, Jessica Weiser, who works for the New York Dermatology Group, said to reporters from Glamour that wearing makeup throughout the night negatively impacts the way in which skin cells rebuild themselves during sleep.
Moreover, Dendy Engelman, another dermatologist out of New York, said oils and dirt can often get underneath layers of cosmetics. One of the reasons for acne, as she described, is that makeup obstructs the natural flow of oil provided by the skin.
Makeup, essentially, disrupts the body’s natural state of homeostasis – a complex biological system of inputs and outputs, connections, and functions.
Another every-day occurrence that affects homeostasis, is the use of ice cubes in drinking water, which forces the body to actually work harder, exerting more energy for the sake of cooling the H20 down to body temperature.
Health consequences or not, the Kardashian family loves makeup. In fact, Kim said her daughter, North is really “into makeup right now,” but she didn’t specify what parts specifically.
Regarding what she wears to sleep at night, Kim said she prefers wearing a “thong and a little bra,” whereas Kanye prefers to sleep naked or just wearing boxer shorts.
