Are Makeup Wipes Bad for Your Skin?
Are makeup wipes really all that bad for your skin and to have as part of your skincare routine? My answer to this is yes AND no! Hang me with me here though - I have a reason for both my answers.

Makeup in general can be super loaded with harmful ingredients that we may know nothing about. Synthetic Fragrance is one of the biggest culprits as it is a host to hundreds of unknown ingredients. Companies actually don't need to disclose what is hidden in that fragrance category, which leaves us as the consumers totally in the dark about what is hiding in our products. Yikes!

Synthetic Fragrance is the #1 ingredient that I have personally ditched from my beauty care products. When it is added to makeup wipes you actually aren't even cleaning your face - you are adding more bad bacteria and harmful ingredients to your skin, which can possibly cause skin irritations and acne.

Now on the flip side when you use a naturally derived makeup removing wipe it can have a few benefits for you. When using a naturally derived makeup removing wipe you are then wiping away the days makeup, dirt and grime gently and effectively - this will leave your skin feeling soft and refreshed. I only recommend this natural makeup wipe as it is the cleanest on the market I have found so far.

Bring these natural makeup wipes with you when you go to the gym, are traveling, or just need a quick freshening up. I'm not a huge fan of using them as your only source of a skincare routine. You still want to be using a gentle cleanser, toner and moisturizer that work for your skin type and treat your skin well.
