Why Face Wipes Are Your Skin’s Worst Enemy

December 21, 2018

young woman with amazing, fair, perfect skinWhat Wipes Really Do

Would you ever put cleanser on your face, smear it around, and then just leave it there? Ugh, never.

But that’s what you’re doing when you use a wipe: spreading bacteria, dirt, oil and the remnants of your makeup around your skin, then just leaving it sit there. Vile or what? That’s why face wipes are your skin’s worst enemy.


Wait, there’s more!

Cleansing cloths can cause a number of problems for your skin. For one thing, they’re a fast track to enlarged, clogged pores. And if you’re acne-prone, using wipes is just asking for breakouts. Bonus: The alcohol necessary to keep wipes fresh in the package can even make naturally oily skin dehydrated and dry.

Put simply: Just wash your face. Yes, even when you’re so tired/drunk that you just can’t summon the strength. Just picture your face covered in red, angry spots and get yourself out of that bed.

That said…

worst thing you can do to skin faceHow to Fix the Damage Done by Wipes

In the end, many of you will keep using wipes – or, worse, sleeping in your makeup. If so, you’ll want to have a look at the range of clinical facials you can get at SISU. You’ll also want to pop in for your free laser skin treatment (yes, free – only at SISU!).

As cleansing is an essential part of keeping skin exfoliated and fresh, doing so inadequately makes it harder for your skin to look its best. So our laser skin therapychemical peels, microdermabrasion, Intraceuticals oxygen facials and microneedling will be hugely helpful if you’re just not into washing your face every night.

While we implore you to ditch the wipes and embrace a healthy cleansing routine, we understand if you’re having too much fun – or too much work – to do so every day of your life. So book in for your free laser skin treatment or a clinical facial and let SISU help fix the effects of one too many wipes. And when you get here, we can recommend the best cleansers to suit your specific skin type and condition.

Facials: Cheap and Cheerful or Dear and Dreadful

Traditional facials are a bit like manicures and pedicures: You can get them from a lot of spas and salons, but the results are highly variable and the price is rarely a bargain. And when it is, it’s always a warning: Run as quickly as your unpainted toes can carry you! Pro tip: Not all facials…
