Are Makeup Remover Wipes Bad For Your Skin?

Makeup remover wipes are really convenient, especially when you’re feeling lazy after a long day at work. They may save you time before bed but are they really cleaning your skin? After all, you are attempting to wipe off a decent amount of makeup. Can a single makeup remover wipe really take off everything? Let’s find out!

Off the bat you know they’re going to leave a residue on your skin. Facial cleansers and wipes contain the same ingredients but with wipes you skip the “rinse with water” step. Therefore, your skin is going to be left with a dirty film.

Since you aren’t rinsing your skin right away, you’ll be left with drying and irritating ingredients sinking into your skin. This isn’t good for anyone with dry or sensitive skin, and especially those with eczema or rosacea. The ingredients aren’t the only thing that can be irritating your skin. The harsh wiping motion can also cause irritation.

Bottom line: makeup remover wipes are necessarily the best thing for your skin. If you’re in a bind and need to use one, make sure you rinse your face immediately after so you wash away the leftover residue.
