5 Makeup Removal Mistakes That Might Be Adding Years To Your Face Secretly

Congrats! Now, you’re a makeup pro. You glow and look youthful. Just a dab of foundation here and a splash of color there – voila! You are done. You wear sunscreen and have your own favorite eye cream. You’re good to go, right? Well, not really! Something as simple as lack of proper makeup removal technique can add years to your look. No, we are not kidding!

We’re not here to scare you. But we all make certain makeup removal mistakes that we all are guilty of. And these makeup mistakes can cost a lot more than we expected, simply, by adding years to our face. Let’s explore such makeup removal mistakes that we have been doing unknowingly.

5 Makeup Removal Mistakes

You use the same face towel for days

Yes, this sounds a bit tacky but how many of us are actually guilty of doing this? It is highly recommended to change your face towel daily. Free radicals tend to build upon on our face, which are then transferred to face towels, thus giving us those unwanted wrinkles.

You rely too much on face wipes

Makeup removing face wipes don’t do much to clean your skin. Let’s face it! They only help in removing the visible makeup. Further, they dry out the skin, especially around the eyes, thus making crow’s feet all the more visible. The best way to remove makeup it to use water and face wash – that is what is going to help you get rid of that thick layer of makeup you carry all day long.

You’re using an overwhelming cleanser

We called it overwhelming because cleanser is only good at forming a lot of foamy stuff. But that would not cut the makeup. And this is the reason that you see subtle BB cream smudges on your towel after washing your face with a face wash. The best way is to use a makeup remover or a face wash that is made to remove makeup.

You often doze off with open hair

We understand. After coming back home past midnight, making even a simple pony seems like a big task and you often end up sleeping with open hair. What’s more? Makeup residue gets accumulated around your hairline, thus leading to clogged pores and breakouts. Don’t be surprised if you find breakouts on your forehead the next morning!

You often end up skipping the last step

No matter the kind of skin you have, make it a point that you complete the process with a good moisturizer. Seal the lips with a good lip balm after you have removed the lipstick and dab an eye cream.

Finally, all done! Permission granted to hit that pillow as it beckons.

Good night.
