Stop Being Lazy And Remove Your Makeup The Right Way

Everyone knows that a makeup wipe doesn't actually remove your wakeup completely.

Stop Being Lazy And Remove Your Makeup The Right Way

That moment at the end of your day when you're relaxing in bed watching Netflix about to fall asleep and then you realize you forgot to take your makeup off... worst moment ever. It takes so much in me to get up, go to the bathroom, remove my makeup with a cleansing balm, then wash my face with my regular facewash, then exfoliate because I feel like I need to after all the makeup I had on, then go back to bed. By the time I get to bed I'm not tired because I just washed my face so now I'm awake again.

So after thinking about my long facewash process and how lazy I am after a long day, I just grab my makeup wipe from my night table, wipe my makeup off, and call it a day. But everyone knows that a makeup wipe doesn't actually remove your wakeup completely. So is a makeup wipe even worth it? Does it damage your skin? Is it better to just wash your face or is a makeup wipe completely ok to do?

Let's find out!

Dermatologist Maryann Mikhail told the Huffington Post that, "Since you’re not rinsing away the active cleansing ingredients in wipes, that residue that’s left behind may expose your skin to high concentrations of solubilizers, surfactants, and emulsifiers. This can be drying and irritating for some people, especially those with dry or sensitive skin. Also, some wipes contain alcohol, which can cause stinging."

I know I don't have sensitive skin but makeup wipes still sometimes even sting my skin. My skin also feels weird after a wipe my face, almost like sticky feeling and definitely dry. Makeup wipes do definitely help remove some makeup but I would suggest at least rinsing your face after using the makeup wipe. Because using a makeup wipe won't thoroughly take off your makeup it's better to wash your face even if it's a hassle because the leftover makeup can build up bacteria and cause breakouts. And no one wants breakouts because of being too lazy to wash there face.

Overall, take care of your face! Don't be lazy night and wash it! It won't kill you to use a makeup wipe alone a few times but definitely, wash your face twice a day. It will keep it smooth and healthy and that's important.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
