Make Up Wipes - Good or Bad?
Do you struggle with removing your makeup? Well, you're not the only one! Many people find makeup removal as the most challenging part of their skin care routine. Because makeup can't be simply removed with soap and water, many people involve makeup wipes as part of their makeup removal routine. However, did you know that makeup wipes are not good for you or the environment? Read more to know why!
Reasons to Stop Using Makeup Wipes
1. Makeup wipes do not actually cleanse your skin, they only remove makeup.
These wipes don't actually cleanse your skin, as they're only designed to break down makeup. If you are looking for a way to keep your skin clean after a long day, you cannot rely only on makeup wipes. Not only does it not properly clean your face, it might also contain harmful chemicals that are damaging to your skin. To effectively remove makeup, requires something gentle but sufficient enough to complete the job.
2. May contain harsh chemicals and preservatives which can irritate your skin
Makeup wipes are harsh on the skin as most contain strong, drying chemicals that strip the skin of its natural oils. This disrupts the natural acidity, changing the pH level of your skin and leaving it unbalanced. On top of this, these wipes remove the skin layer compromising the skins natural ability to protect itself from bacteria, dirt and harmful elements. This means that your skin will be exposed and be prone to acne and infection affecting the appearance and health of your skin.
3. Most of the time, they leave residue on your skin
Makeup wipes do not remove everything most of the time, leaving residue from makeup and pollutants. These impurities will remain in your pores and clog them if not properly taken care of, leading to breakouts and promoting acne and other skin problems which are common and experienced by many of us.
4. They cause daily skin trauma
The skin on your face is extremely delicate. However in the effort to remove the makeup on our face, most of us resort to excessive tugging and pulling at the skin. The consequence of this is the development of wrinkles, making you look older. If you have sensitive skin or rosacea, you might experience irritation from the rubbing action through the use of makeup wipes. This can also lead to redness, inflammation, and irritation.
5. They aren't eco-friendly and create disposable waste
Unfortunately, it can take at least one hundred years for a single makeup wipe to decompose. Imagine the wastes from thousands of makeup wipes users all over the world. If these people do not stop using makeup wipes, tons of toxic wastes will destroy our environment.
