The Benefits of using Facial Cleansing Wipes to remove your makeup! (Product Feature+Giveaway)

Thursday, March 26, 2015

I can't stress this enough, makeup removal is an integral part of a good skin care regime. Believe me! When I was younger, I used to sleep with makeup on and I would wake up with really dull skin! Everyday, our skin is exposed to dirt, grime and dust present in the air everyday (yeesh!)

There are oil glands and sweat glands present in our skin and their secretions are deposited on the surface of the skin and just sits there if not removed. If you are one of those women who use makeup as a part of the daily routine, makeup forms and adds another deposit on the skin. Can you imagine all of that sitting on top of your skin and sleeping on it too?

Not yet a Facial Cleansing Wipes user? Allow me to convince you! More information after the break, plus a chance to win Nivea Cleansing Wipes!

Now if these deposits are not removed regularly the pores in the skin get clogged, so you see, makeup does not clog the pores, it only does when dirt and makeup is not removed when you sleep at night. Since the skin breathes through the pores, clogged pores lead to skin infections and outbreaks of acne. The skin needs to be constantly hydrated not only from within but from the outside as well. Clogged pores mean that the skin does not get enough water and it results to dry skin and that's the reason why it ages prematurely.

The solution to all these problems lies in cleansing, toning and moisturizing the skin everyday (yes! EVERY SINGLE DAY!). Makeup removal should be the most IMPORTANT part of our skin care regime before going to bed at night. Ridding the skin off makeup before sleep enables the skin to breathe freely and repair itself properly. Skin gets rejuvenated and is able to renew itself at night too so this is very crucial. Ask any skin care expert, they will stress on nightly cleaning of the skin to avoid skin problems.

Cosmetics contain chemicals, all of which may not be washed away just by using water. This is especially the case with oil based long-wear makeup. There are special make up removers used to remove water proof and long stay makeup... and one of these is my current favorite, Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes!
At the end of a very busy day, you might find it tedious to go through the entire skin cleansing routine, specially for working moms who just can't wait to hit the sack at night. Given the amount women who travel nowadays, carrying different bottles of cleansers, toners and moisturizers besides cotton pads is cumbersome. And that's why I really recommend using cleansing wipes, specially if you are prone to have that "just for tonight, I'll sleep with makeup on" attitude.
Nivea Facial Cleansing Wipes are disposable cotton towelettes which are soaked in a solution of a gentle makeup remover and packed in resealable packs that preserve the moistness of the towelettes. Mild fragrances and cooling solutions are added to the towelettes which are very gentle to the skin, and safe for sensitive skin as well. 

These wipes just need to be removed from the packet, gently swipe on the face and throw away! One of the things I love most about Nivea's Facial Cleansing Wipes is that it contains natural almond oil, which moisturize the skin in addition to cleaning it so you can skip the moisturizer at night!
Not only are these wipes nature friendly, Nivea uses biodegradable materials for making the towelettes and use natural cleansers that are a friend to mother nature. How's that for a bonus?
There is no argument too that makeup wipes are the most convenient to carry and use and save time. I love using these wipes every time I wanna freshen up my face and I am not wearing makeup. I hate feeling sweaty and oily throughout the day so I just whip one out and start wiping my face, and my skin is instantly refreshed! 

However, there's a stigma that makeup wipes irritate sensitive skin and cause drying of skin, and that's why Nivea is alcohol free!
