5 Handy Uses for Face Wipes

Face wipes are an efficient way to remove your makeup at the end of the day, although they shouldn’t be used as a standalone skincare product. You still want to make sure you’re getting a thorough cleanse and don’t want to forget the rest of your daily skincare routine. Many face wipes are formulated for sensitive skin, and there are wipes designed for your skin type, whether you have dry skin, oily skin, blemish-prone skin, or some type in between. What’s really great about face wipes, though, is that they have so many other uses.

1. Use for a quick wipe-down after a workout

If you don’t have time for a shower after a workout before you head back to work or out for the evening, grab one of these wipes for a quick sponge bath. With formulations designed to be gentle enough for your sensitive face skin, these wipes are perfect to use anywhere else on your body too and give you a great option for a quick refresher.

2. Use to clean your makeup containers

Mascara tubes, foundation bottles, and eyeshadow boxes tend to collect grime from dried makeup. Since face wipes are designed to remove makeup, they make the perfect tool to clean up your makeup containers and keep them fresh and clean.

3. Use for wiping makeup brushes

Face wipes aren’t a substitute for a quality makeup brush cleaning, but they are great for in-between. Wipe your brushes with a face wipe after each use to avoid spreading bacteria and collecting layers of makeup.

4. Use to remove oil from your scalp

If you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to shampoo your hair, you can use a face wipe to remove some of that greasy buildup. Dry shampoo is another great option, but it can just add to product buildup if you don’t remove what’s already on your hair and scalp beforehand. Taking a few seconds to remove what’s there with a face wipe will help you avoid that weighted-down, greasy feeling and make your dry shampoo more effective.

5. Use as a sheet mask

Face wipes make great sheet masks. Since they already include cleansing agents and other ingredients to make your skin soft and happy, you will only need to add a few ingredients and cut some holes for your eyes. Hop on over to a do-it-yourself site like YouTube and modify sheet mask guides to make good use of your inexpensive face wipes.
