Removing makeup, why is it important?
What everyone fears is the appearance of new wrinkles, and not removing a layer of makeup accelerates the aging process of the skin. Of course, apart from that, the appearance of acne, pimples and inflammation of the skin, irritation and redness are also frequent occurrences caused by inadequate facial care.
A layer of make-up left on the face during the night prevents the shedding of dead cells from the surface of the skin. As a result, the skin becomes rough and flaky. While the complexion becomes uneven and various allergic reactions occur.
During our daily activities at work and at home, dust and dirt accumulate in the pores. This is exactly the main reason for removing makeup. It should be emphasized that even if you have not used makeup, clean your face thoroughly before going to bed. Precisely to avoid accumulation of impurities in the pores.
