We’ve all heard horror stories about people who didn’t make a habit out of removing makeup properly—clogged pores (oh no!), breakouts (OMG!). One woman from Hubei, China, however, have it worse when doctors found mites on her eyelashes! They suspect it could be due to improper removal of eye makeup (on some days, she skipped cleansing all together when her work schedule gets hectic), and the buildup of dead skin cells and impurities basically made it an ideal breeding ground for mites. Shudders. And when that happens, you won’t only experience eye irritation, but could potentially have inflamed eyelids or even conjunctivitis.
We get it, hustling—or partying—is tough, but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do, which is remove makeup properly at the end of the day.
If you don’t feel like dealing with the potential spillage of a liquid-based makeup remover such as cleansing oil or water (because you’re too sleepy to even keep your eyes open), these makeup wipes make for great alternatives to make sure you hit the sack with clean skin. Plus, these cleansing wipes super convenient to bring along when you’re travelling!
