Makeup wipes and removing makeup on tired nights used to be like 5 and 6... till I realised the harm they were causing.
Wipes don't do a good job at removing all the makeup, dirt and buildup from your face. These just sit on your face along with a sticky residue that most wipes leave behind *yuck*. You know the one I'm talking about. While you are in bed, these impurities make their way into your pores clogging them and leading to acne breakouts. This is why a lot of people complain about breaking out after frequent use of makeup wipes.
Speaking of sticking residues, a lot of makeup wipes out there are made using ingredients that can be drying or harsh on the skin. This is especially worse when you don't rinse off and how many people actually rinse off afterwards?
As if these aren't enough, the texture of some makeup wipes are considered too harsh for the skin. The texture of these wipes plus the tugging of the skin to wipe off makeup can cause fine lines and wrinkles on the skin. We can all agree that we don't want that.
What's the alternative to makeup wipes, you ask?
There are a couple but let's focus on oil cleansers. They are the bomb! Cleansing Oils are more effective at removing makeup than wipes because makeup is oil based and oil dissolves oil. Cleansing Oils can easily breakdown even that stubborn waterproof mascara that you love all day till its time to take it off!
Cleansing oils are a gentler alternative for the skin and good cleansing oils are made in a way that you can easily rinse them off your skin without leaving a greasy feel behind.
You can also follow up with your regular cleanser to deeply cleanse your pores and address skin conditions like acne. This is known as double cleansing.
