Common mistakes while removing makeup- how do we choose wisely?
- Removing makeup with a face wash
Cosmetic products contain many chemicals such as fragrances and dyes, alcohols, acrylics (plastic), parabens, silicones, lead, as well as tons of unpronounceable compounds in order to be formulated as long-lasting, budge-proof, and often waterproof. Face wash is not designed to remove such stubborn substances and can’t do this job.
- Using face wipes to remove makeup
You may be thinking, “Yes, I know how important it is to remove my makeup. That’s what makeup wipes are for.”
Make up wipes might be convenient but they’re made with cleansing agents that are toxic for your skin. Beyond cleansing agents, the cloths also have preservatives that make them shelf-stable. Both the cleansing agents and the preservatives in leading brands) break down our healthy skin cells, making us more susceptible to sun damage, premature wrinkles, and congested pores.
There’s also the issue that makeup wipes probably won’t remove all your makeup, but could cause over-exfoliation of your skin. Besides, wipes put a toll on the environment.

- Using oil-based or water-based remover only
If you took chemistry in high school, you might have learned that water and oil don’t mix. Rather, oil attracts oil. That’s why oil-based removers do an excellent job to take away dirt, debris, and makeup, but the molecular size of oil might clog the skin and only recommended for those with sensitive, dry skin, and not for people with oily skin.
Water-based cleansing agents use a surfactant to rinse off dirt, but might not be able to remove stubborn products completely. So the best trending way is called the double cleansing method, which integrates both oil-based and water-based formulas into one makeup remover routine. This method is sure remove all traces of makeup and sunscreen at the end of the day without clogging your skin
