Do you always take off your makeup before bed? Every night? If the answer is no, then you are not alone.

In a recent survey, a third of women questioned confessed to sleeping with their makeup on at least twice a week, according to The Daily Mail.

One woman decided to test out the effects of leaving it on – and she did it for a whole month.

Anna decided to leave her makeup on for an entire month without washing it before bed.

She later reported that “Sleeping with her makeup on for a month left Anna’s smooth skin looking cracked and red.”

Anna then went to a 3D Cosmetic Imaging Studio, where her face was analyzed using a special 3D camera which showed “pigmentation, broken veins, enlarged pores and wrinkles.”
