Cleansing wipes and facial cleansers are made up of chemical ingredients which dissolve makeup on the face.
They contain chemicals known as surfactants, solublizers and emulsifiers which remove makeup, oil and dead skin from your face.
Great news right? Well not exactly. Here’s the down side
The thing is, after doing their jobs, cleaning wipes and cleansers leave behind some parts of themselves on your face. Oh yeah! They leave residue of chemical ingredient which can be irritating, stinging and may even cause rashes and eczema.
Cleaning wipes are mostly preserved with a chemical called formaldehyde in order to keep it moist for whenever you want to use it. Residue of formaldehyde left on your skin is not good.
So am I saying that you should throw all your cleansers in the trash? Of course not. Just follow these simple guidelines when using cleansers and you’ll be fine.
- Rinse your face with soap and water immediately after using wipes not before.
- Check the ingredients before buying and try as much as possible to avoid cleansers and wipes containing formaldehyde.
- Avoid cleansers with fragrance. More chemicals are added to give a product fragrance.
