Product Pick :Korres Milk Proteins Makeup Removing Wipes

We’ve all done it. You’re tired after a long days work, you head right to bed after a late night out with friends or quite simply you forget. If it only happens once in awhile it’s no big deal. Forgetting to remove your makeup most nights? Then get ready for acne, clogged pores and even premature aging! I don’t know about you but that tidbit of information makes me want to obsessively scrub my face immediately.

Everyone knows that a healthy lifestyle includes a good nights sleep, but it’s also the key to great skin. During your sleep cycle, skin rebuilds itself from any environmental or physical stress you’ve encountered during the day. One of the key components to achieving clear skin is good circulation— it allows skin to breathe in oxygen and breathe out toxins. Thus, by not removing ones makeup before bed you’re allowing bacteria to get trapped inside of the skin, which can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. In addition to this, leftover foundation, powder and blush can suck the moisture from your skin. What does this mean longterm? That you’re more susceptible to wrinkles because you’re actively participating in letting your skin dry out. A tip on turning this around, skin is more receptive while you’re sleeping. In other words, it’s the ideal time to apply hydrating products like moisturizers and serums. So word to the wise, if you decide to forgo removing your makeup before your head hits the pillow just know that you’re depriving your skin from some much needed tlc.

It doesn’t have to be difficult ladies! When it’s late at night and you start to have the internal to remove makeup or to not remove makeup debate no one is saying you need to spend 10-15 minutes cleansing and exfoliating and moisturizing. When you’re tired a drawn out skin regimen can feel daunting. Enter makeup removing wipes! In particular, my recent find and now personal favourite Korres Milk Proteins Cleansing & Makeup Removing Wipes. I can’t recommend these wipes enough. One wipe removes all of my makeup (including eye makeup) effectively and efficiently allowing my skin, on those exhaustive nights, to reap all the rewards a good nights sleep has to offer. An added bonus? The products name says it all. The wipes contain milk proteins, which are rich in aminoacids offering nourishing and moisturizing properties for your skin. Milk is an invaluable skincare ingredient due to its rich composition and skin compatibility. It worked for Cleopatra, so why not let it work for you!

It’s that simple friends. Add these wipes to your skincare regimen so that you and your skin reap the beauty rewards that a good nights sleep is designed to give you. Available at Sephora and select Shoppers Drug Mart’s, your mascara stained pillow cases will thank you. We all have at least one makeup stained pillow case, admit it!

On those nights when you do take the time to cleanse, tone and moisturize, give Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cream Cleanser a try. Like the wipes, it boasts the same milk protein benefits while removing everyday impurities without stripping the skin.

Let the makeup free sleeping commence!
