Put Down The Disposable Makeup Wipes For Good
After a long night out, you might reach for disposable makeup wipes, but we advise against it. These harsh wipes will take a toll on your skin and will have harmful side effects.
Makeup wipes don’t fully clean the skin and, as dermatologist Dr. Marie Hayang told The Everygirl, "contain a high concentration of surfactants" and can be "irritating and drying."
These chemicals can also result in breakouts, redness, and skin irritation, especially for those with rosacea, eczema, and sensitive skin.
Additionally, since makeup wipes are often made from non-biodegradable materials, they are harmful to the environment and contribute to pollution and landfill waste.
Instead, switch to a cloth, rag, or reusable cotton pad to remove makeup using a liquid makeup remover or cleanser. Your skin and environment will thank you for this change.
