Why We Should Not Use Face Wipes

Why We Should Not Use Face Wipes

At first face wipes seem like an easy and fast way to cleanse skin. They are convenient, fast and affordable. However, they are not quite the dream product that we wish they were. For anyone that has used face wipes, you might have noticed quite a dry uncomfortable feeling on the face. It depends on the actual face wipe of course, and the quality can vary widely. At Nakin we are dedicated to producing amazing natural skincare, but we would never include face wipes in our anti-ageing skincare. There are many reasons for this and why we recommend not using face wipes, as listed below.

  • Face wipes do not clean the face properly, although they do remove some dirt and make-up, it is very much grime that is on the surface of skin, so deeper down dirt is left in its place.
  • They leave behind the ingredients that are on the wipe, so as some conventional wipes contain harsh cleansers and preservatives, these are left on the face and can cause irritation.
  • Many face wipes contain strong cleansing ingredients that can disrupt the skin barrier and microbiome, which can have all sorts of negative effects on skin.
  • A lot of face wipes contain quite harsh cleansers, which can strip skin of the natural oils and be drying to skin and throw it off balance.
  • In order to get grime off with face wipes, we tend to rub them quite hard over the face, and this rubbing is damaging to skin and causes inflammation.
  • Some face wipes have eco issues for the environments, as they are made of fibres that cannot biodegrade naturally.

Instead of using face wipes, we recommend a healthy cleansing routine of cleansing the face with a cleansing milk or face wash. and face toner combination. This might take longer than using face wipes, however, cleansing the skin with amazing natural face products in the morning and evening will result in clear, soft, happy comforted skin.

Nakin’s natural Advanced Cleansing Milk cleans deep down and is kind and nourishing to skin. It cleans and brightens dull skin as it helps to clear away dead skin cells, as well as hydrating and nourishing skin. Skin is left beautifully cleansed without stripping; and dullness is banished, for soft glowing skin.

If you prefer a more squeaky clean finish then try our Rejuvenating Face Wash instead. It's a gorgeous product with a rich natural foaming lather that deeply cleanses and clears the complexion.

After the cleansing milk use Nakin’s natural Purifying Face Toner which helps dull skin by removing the last traces of cleanser, detoxing skin, clearing away dead skin cells and conditioning. Impurities are wiped away with the deep-down cleansing action, but skin is still balanced and calm.

You can also exfoliate with our Nakin Exfoliating Radiance Tonic which takes cleansing a stage further with the clearing and reviving AHA formula.

We hope that you found this article useful about why you should not use face wipes. Face wipes do not generally clean skin properly, and they can cause issues for skin like dryness, irritation and disrupting the barrier. They can also be bad for the environment, although there are lots of natural options available now. At Nakin we love living a natural healthy lifestyle. When it comes to skincare products, we believe in using natural skincare that is kind to skin. The nice thing is that amazing natural skincare products like Nakin’s are really nourishing and boosting to skin, as they are filled with the best plant ingredients. Following a good skin regime morning and evening, as well as using cruelty free skincare is the best way to keep your skin clean, smooth and glowing. At Nakin we believe in looking as good as we can naturally, and this is why we developed our award winning anti-ageing skincare range. A healthy lifestyle combined with always using the best skincare products is one of the easiest things you can do to enhance your look naturally.

While face wipes may offer convenience, especially for on-the-go makeup removal, they are often not the best choice for maintaining healthy skin. One significant concern is that they can be quite harsh, potentially leading to irritation and inflammation. This is due to the chemicals and preservatives contained in many wipes to ensure their moisture and longevity. But they are also not the best for cleansing the skin properly and can even just wipe any grime around the face. Over-reliance on these wipes can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness and an imbalance in the skin’. Furthermore, face wipes may not effectively remove all makeup and impurities, leading to clogged pores and breakouts. Therefore, opting for gentler cleansing methods can be more beneficial for skin health in the long term.

Some alternative options to consider are our cleansing milk face wash, toner and exfoliator, that are specifically designed for removing makeup, cleansing and rejuvenating the face and neck. Our products have much more nourishing ingredients and do not require the harsh rubbing or scrubbing motion of a face wipe. Double cleansing, which involves using a cleansing milk or face wash and following with a toner, is also becoming increasingly popular for thoroughly the skin.
