Is it teething time for your little one?
It is easy to resort to using facial wipes to remove your makeup, especially after a long day and you’re feeling tired. However, while they are ok to use every now and then, they aren’t particularly good at cleansing your skin or leaving your face properly clean.
Here’s why you should switch from wipe to a proper cleanser:
They can be drying
A lot of wipes contain alcohol which can be harsh on your skin as they remove natural oils.
Full of preservatives
If you have sensitive skin you should avoid using wipes too often as they can contain preservatives which will irritate you.
Damage the eye area
If you are using wipes to remove your eye make-up, you are putting yourself at risk of getting under eye wrinkles and damaging the delicate eye area. This is because they require you to rub quite vigorously if you want to remove mascara.
Your face is not fully cleansed
Wipes don’t fully remove your make-up so you will end up going to bed with some foundation or mascara still on your face.
Other products won’t work
As wipes won’t fully cleanse your face, anything you put on your skin after such as moisturiser won’t be properly absorbed. This means they won’t be of benefit to your skin.
