The Terrible Beauty Habit I Share With Lady Gaga
Ladies, I’m about to tell you something really gross — something really disgusting that it seems both Lady Gaga and I have a habit of doing. I know that from a very young age, little girls have it drilled into them that we’re not supposed to do this, but I can’t help myself… I never take my makeup off before I go to sleep. And neither does Lady Gaga. There, I said it. In an interview over the weekend, the Mama Monster told People:
When asked how many nights per week she goes to bed wearing makeup, she replies, “Seven. That is not good for your skin, but I’m blessed with good genes.” What is good for her skin? The sunblock she carries around in her beauty bag. “I don’t like to tan my face because it’s bad for wrinkles,” she explains.
Ah, sweet relief! I’m not the only one! Why don’t I, non-international pop superstar, wash my makeup off before bed? Well, okay, yes, I’m lazy. But! Also, I’ve always been plagued with sleeping problems — major ones — and I suppose I’m worried that if I splash a bunch of water on my face, I’m going to wake myself up even more right before trying to fall asleep.
But listen, Gaga and I can’t be the only ones. Come on … ‘fess up! Do you always wash your makeup off before you go to bed? [NYMag]
