Makeup Wipes: The Truth Behind These Time Savers
Makeup wipes are fantastic when in a pinch, but are they good for your skin?
No matter what, you must remove your makeup before you let your head hit that pillow. Falling asleep with makeup on is one of the worst things you can do to your skin; if you do not remove your makeup, you are pushing your makeup into your skin, clogging your pores, hitting fast forward on premature aging and adding more bacteria to your pillow.
So…. using makeup wipes is good right? They are a quick, easy and effective way to remove makeup at our laziest moments. Getting the makeup off is the goal, and these little gems can easily take off makeup without ever having to leave your bed.
Keeping a pack of wipes in your night stand is a great idea to help you in a pinch and make sure you follow our guidelines to find the best ones out there!
Alcohol in your wipes can cause irritation and dryness, especially if you have sensitive skin. Look for an alcohol free formula and whenever possible, pick a brand labeled for sensitive skin.
Hold the wipe on your eyes to emulsify your eye makeup. This helps dissolve the product and prevents harsh rubbing and tugging on your eyes, causing wrinkles and redness.
Ingredients such a Vitamin E and Aloe can help soothe and hydrate! Cucumber extract cools and refreshes. Look for fragrance free wipes to avoid added irritants. Baby wipes are an economical alternative to expensive makeup wipes. Our CEO and President swears by them!
Don’t forget, after using your makeup removing wipes, apply your favorite night cream to hydrate and moisturize your skin!
