What Chemical Makeup Removers are doing to your Skin!
We have all heard one of one of the most crucial things we could do beauty-wise is to remove our make-up completely. The most important step you can take begins with using the very best makeup remover for you with as few chemicals as possible, preferably none.
When we sleep that is when our bodies recover as well as rejuvenates from the day- your skin is no exception. If makeup remains on the skin overnight, it is hindering the skin's opportunity to rejuvenate.
Makeup prevents the Free Radicals from leaving your body, when your body retains the Free Radicals your skin will age quicker, you will be more prone to acne breakouts, your pores become clogged and wrinkles will develop quicker.
The best advice is to remove makeup before retiring for the evening and to remove it completely. Not all makeup removers are equal, some still leave residue on your skin and because of their chemical compounds are just as hard as the makeup to remove.
These chemicals can cause a whole set of issues with your skin as well. We all want to be diligent to make sure what we put on our bodies is safe and does not cause any other problems. Lets look some of the ingredients for some of the top chemical makeup removers, these were taken straight off Amazon.com.
