Big fan of Makeup Removal Wipes? We'll tell you why you need to drop them now!

Makeup removing wipes are made of synthetic materials like plastic and polyester which makes them non-biodegradable. The wipes are also not very skin-friendly as they leave behind dirt and oil. 

Makeup removing wipes are single-use towelettes that are soaked in cleansing solutions to quickly remove makeup, on the go! They are cheap, convenient and easily available, making them a lifesaver for all those who hate removing their waterproof lipstick or winged liner after a long day.

But, these disposable wipes are not entirely godsent, and here’s why you need to stop using them NOW! Makeup removing wipes are made of synthetic materials like rayon and polyester and they take around 100 years to degrade completely. This is why the wipes are an absolute menace to the environment. And that's not all! These wet wipes also damage your skin by leaving behind dirt, grime, and oil, leading to clogged pores, breakouts and even irritated skin.

So, if you want to switch to something more skin-friendly, here are some sustainable alternatives to one-time use, makeup removing wipes

Micellar water: Made of cleaning compounds like purified water, glycerin, and mild surfactants, micellar water not only removes every trace of makeup but the glycerine in it also hydrates the skin.

Cleansing balm: A cleansing balm is an effective option to remove makeup, dirt and oil without drying out the skin. Just slather and massage your face with the balm and allow it to emulsify by adding a couple of drops of water on your face. Simply rinse it off after the emulsification process.

Cleansing oil: These are water-soluble oils that dissolve makeup and dirt off your skin. After applying the oil, just wash your face with clear water to get rid of the remnants and you’re good to proceed with other skincare products for the night!

Reusable makeup removing pads: Crafted from organic compounds, these soft washable pads are a great alternative to disposable cotton balls. You simply need to douse them with some makeup remover and clean off your face using the same.
