Weary Woman Makeup Remover

Weary woman makeup removerI read once that each time you go to bed without removing your makeup, you add three days to your age. Oh dear; this could add up. So what's a weary woman to do?

Such was the dilemma posed by Carmen to Beauty Brains, asking if baby wipes would be a good solution. The resident Brain responded with a definitive “Maybe.” Sort of a yes.

A yes, but.... Here's the thing: DON'T DO IT! If you just cannot face the task of cleaning your face properly, here is a quick solution better than baby wipes: Pour a gentle cleanser (White Tea Cleansing Milk or Rice & Olives Cleansing Serum are mild enough even for the fragile eye area) onto a cotton pad or a damp face cloth and wipe away the day's makeup, dirt, debris, and oils which have settled into your pores. Wipe again with a rinsed pad/cloth and you're done. Maybe 30 seconds, start to finish.

This is a minimalist solution which falls into the category of "better-than-nothing" and I can barely restrain myself here. I will just add that an effective nighttime routine needs as little as five minutes. Sleep is a time for regeneration; use it wisely.

Your skin will thank you. Trust me.

We’ve all dealt with breakouts or stubborn acne at some point. Especially with the added stress of the holidays behind us (overindulging in goodies) and dry winter weather, it’s not unusual for skin to go on a spotty rampage this time of year. But for some, acne seems to have taken up a permanent residence year-round, which can signal that skin-irritating beauty products may be to blame.
