𝐀𝐓𝐓𝐄𝐍𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍 𝐇𝐀𝐏𝐏𝐘 𝐇𝐎𝐔𝐑 𝐅𝐑𝐈𝐄𝐍𝐃𝐒 🗣 Consider this your weekend PSA 🍸🍹🍺🍻🥂🍷🥃🍶 Nothing beats soap and water!
Very few makeup wipes contain ingredients that can actually break down all of your face oils, makeup, and gunk on your skin, so you're really just rubbing bacteria, irritants, and makeup-wipe residue around your skin and into your pores. 🤢
Makeup wipes can cause irritation due to preservatives that prevent micro-organisms from contaminating the wipes.
The actual mechanics of rubbing your face with the wipe can wreak havoc on your skin too. Rubbing can cause low-grade inflammation that, over time, can promote skin pigmentation or even early wrinkling! 🙅🏾♀️🙅🏽♂️🙅🏼♀️🙅🏻♂️
To be clear - using a face wipe IS better than not cleaning your face at all. HOWEVER - if you've got face wash sitting in your bathroom, there's no reason not to walk, crawl, or drag yourself to the sink and wash your damn face. Why risk hyper-pigmentation, irritated skin and premature aging??
