Free from Makeup
Tempted to fall into bed without removing that war paint? Don’t! Leaving make-up on at night (regularly) may lead to clogged pores and even pigmentation!
A grand party, some great wine and tapas and lovely company – a great night out can leave you gasping for breath and aching in your high heels. Natural for you to feel too lazy to come down from that high and get that make-up off! But do, leaving make-up on regularly at night can leave your skin clogged with oil and particles, cause dead-skin build-up and even lead to breakouts and pigmentation. Here are two products from my personal kitty that are easy-to-use and take the make-up off in a flash so can fall into bed that much faster. My advice: do take it off to get skin that’s free to breathe well and look great!
The ups: It’s gentle, makes your nails stop chipping so much and doesn’t leave the nail bed dry – there’s no whitish layer on the nails as there is if you use acetone.
The downs: It’s gentle so does take more than a couple of swipes to get that polish off particularly if you go whole hog with the base coat, nail paint and top coat! It also has a slightly acrid smell…
