When it comes to skincare, there's no shortage of articles claiming to have the secret to great skin. But there's one rule every beauty professional can absolutely, 100% agree on: never, ever wear makeup to bed!

Why is sleeping in makeup so incredibly horrible for your skin? Dermatologists note that during the hours you spend sleeping, your skin works to regenerate itself from a day filled with environmental stresses. Sleeping in makeup can result in fine lines and premature aging as well as acne flair ups. Even the littlest bits of makeup can have long-term results, which is why our current obsession is the ProX by Olay Advanced Facial Cleansing System with Facial Brush.

Let's not kid ourselves, washing off makeup can be a pain. It's the long, annoying process constantly standing between you and your bed. That's why this brush works to remove dirt, oil and makeup for you. Just turn on the brush and softly maneuver it around your face, and you'll remove way more makeup than traditional makeup wipes and oils.

Plus, using Olay's facial brush in place of your normal routine will allow your anti-aging serum and moisturizer to sink even deeper into your pores to receive their full effect.

The ProX is currently available in the Shop on AOL, along with an included Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser that exfoliates to slough off any lingering dead skin cells. The Cleansing System is 50% off, at just $19.99 which includes free shipping to the continental United States.
