Beauty Question: Wet Tissue vs. Facial Tissue

by pinksoda

Hello ladies! I am starting a new corner here in LadySoda. It’s called the beauty question of the day. I figured we all can learn together with some beauty essentials and tips, might be from me or from experts out there. If you also have tips to share on our beauty question for the day, please feel free to share! Let’s interact!

So, here’s our first Beauty Question:

If you remember back in science class, we’re told not to mix oil and water because these two components won’t fuse into one liquid body. Know that each time you wipe your face with these water-based sheets, you’ll only make oil bubbles on your face like a pancake that’s ready to be flipped over. Alright, I get it, you think that wiping your face with the wet wipes feels like washing your face and it refreshes you and it feels clean. The fact is, the only thing you did in doing it is merely cooling down your face but not rally getting rid of the grease. With that said, don’t bin your wipes just yet! Simply use dry facial tissue to blot your face then finish off with moist ones. It is recommended to apply a de-greaser moisturing gel before you head out. Opt for an oil-free, non-comedogenic, water-based moisturizer. Note that stripping the skin of moisture will only further encourage the sebaceous glands to produce more oil to compensate.

I don’t use wet wipes on my face. Some of them contains alcohol which will fry it up.

i don’t usually use wet or facial tissue but if your face is oily, it’s really advisable to use a dray facial tissue that can control the oils

I didn’t know this! Personally I feel like I am getting my face a but clean with non-alcohol baby wipes. I know it’s for the baby bums but it helps them get clean, I figured why not use it on my face. The main reason why I use wet wipes anyway is to wipe the sweat and dirt. I can always wash it thoroughly at home.
