Please Stop Using Your Makeup Wipes To Wash Your Face

Makeup wipes are a wonderful way to do what their name states—wipe off your makeup. There’s nothing better than wiping and cooling your face with a gentle cloth, removing makeup after a long day. But that’s all you’re doing—you’re wiping the top layer of your skin, getting some of the makeup off. Not all of the excess oil or dirt. Just some of the makeup on your outer layer.

Yes, makeup wipes are convenient, easy to use, and appear effective.

Effective + Gentle = Healthy Skin

Right? Wrong.

We’re sorry to bring you down, but makeup wipes should not be your only friend when it comes to taking care your skin.

They’re fine for occasional use (camping, traveling, in a hurry) but if you’re solely using makeup wipes to clean you’re skin, you’re causing long-term damage to your face and not truly cleaning the deeper layers of your skin.

Actual cleansers, like TEN’s Hydrating Facial Milk Cleanser, not only remove makeup without stripping skin of its natural oils, but also go the extra step and remove all sorts of pore-clogging debris.

All cleansers are formulated with ingredients to grab the oil and dirt, while the water takes it all away when you wash. This means cleansers are true to their name and cleanse your face completely, ensuring no irritation, acne pop-ups, or other blemishes. Common ingredients you may find in cleansers are coconut-derived cleansing agents and glycosides. And just like makeup remover, there are many different types of cleansers: milk-based, gel-based, balms, oils, cleansers, oil-cleansers, and exfoliators. All of these types are made to help remove makeup, dirt, SPF, excess oil, and help you refresh your skin, prepping it for the serums and moisturizers you use post-cleanse.

Using a true cleanser can ensure your skin stays refreshed, tight, clear, and smooth. Cleaning your skin may also help enhance the benefits of serums and moisturizers you use.

We recommend you wash your face twice a day. Every. Single. Day. If you’re using an oil cleanser, however, we advice you double cleanse, using another type of cleanser afterwards—especially if you have combination or oily skin.

After just a couple days of creating a wash routine, you’ll notice a wonderful difference to your skin! Glow today!
