For all the lovely ladies out there:-

If you dread about taking those extra few minutes to wipe off all the make-up and grime from your face, makeover removing pads may appear like a Godsend.

At least that’s what you’ve believed to be true so far... RIGHT? But then here’s a question- Exactly how good are these makeup removing pads for your skin.?

Based on this a Dermatologist in Brisbane, Dr Craig Kemp, presents an interesting answer to this riddle.

He says:-

“ Most women believe that using makeup remover pads help wipe their skin clean of all existing makeup and the settled dust particles...

...However, the ugly truth behind it is that it doesn’t, and after using it, it is important to wash their faces properly before going to bed.”

Also, those few ladies who mistakenly forget to take their makeover off before sleeping, tend to curse themselves in the morning every-time. And it’s not because they wake up to a foundation-coloured pillowcase, but because they find their face looking like a stage of an overnight mutiny.

“Using Makeup Remover Wipes Leaves Behind Residues On Your Skin.”

Most makeup remover wipes in Brisbane consists of certain active ingredients such as surfactants. These help to dissolve the make-up along with emulsifiers and solubilisers which help in lifting makeup, dead skin cells and oil from the surface.

They can cause drying and skin irritation, especially to those having sensitive-dry skin. Certain makeup remover wipes also contain alcohol which can cause stinging on the skin.

“But Makeup Remover Wipes Are Also Important For You!”

So, rather than neglecting the skin completely, most ladies (especially those with oily skin surfaces) tend to use buy makeup remover pad for their makeup removal and skin maintenance.

‘If at all one needs to use make-up remover pads, then its best to buy it from a reliable source selling skin-friendly wipes for sale.
