4 Reasons to STOP USING MAKEUP WIPES 🛑 Here's Why...
Hey guys, I wanted to share with you some information I researched about makeup wipes. I feel like they have been so widely used for so long (including me) and we never took the time to research how they would affect our skin… UNTIL NOW!
🛑 Here are the reasons you should stop using makeup wipes (and start using the double cleanse method!) 🛑
1️⃣ DRYING INGREDIENTS
Mineral Oil – Due to its ability to remove grease, it’s often found in makeup removers. But, when Mineral Oil coats the skin it hinders the skin’s ability to breathe.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate – can also irritate the skin and eyes
Diazolidinyl Urea – can cause allergic reactions in which someone will experience red, swollen, itchy skin where the product was used
Cyclopentasiloxane – This is considered a mild carcinogen
🧼 These ingredients strips the skin off its natural oils, and destroys the barrier that seals in the moisture and natural oils
2️⃣ DOESN’T FULLY REMOVE YOUR MAKEUP
💧 The active ingredients in makeup remover wipes are generally the same as regular cleansers: Both rely on surfactants, which dissolve makeup. Without the added step of rinsing with water, wipes aren't as thorough and leave behind a portion of the grime on your skin.
3️⃣ TUGGING/PULLING ON YOUR SKIN
🔴 Rubbing can cause low-grade inflammation that, over time, can promote skin pigmentation or even early wrinkling
4️⃣ TERRIBLE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
🌎 Unfortunately, single-use products cause much more harm than we can imagine. It can take at least one hundred years for a single makeup wipe to decompose. Imagine using one everyday, and adding to the pile of waste that we already produce countless tonnes of.
🤔 After learing all of this, what do you think? Will you switch to the double cleanse method? Or are make-up wipes too convenient to give up?
