Is it ok to sleep in face paint?

DD is down for the night. She got her face painted a few hours ago. Should I wake her up to wash it off or is one night ok?

  • It really depends. When I was little I could have face paint on my face, but I could not have it on when I slept. I did this one halloween and my parent's had to take me to the ER because I could not open my eyes at all. My son on the other hand can wear it and sleep in it with no problems. It is best to take it off though.

  • Hmmm... I would just go into her room and try to wipe it off with a baby wipe. Just so it is mostly off.
