Smitten: Cleansing Mitten
The last thing you want to do at the end of the day/night is have to remove makeup, don’t you wish it was acceptable and healthy for you to go to bed with it on? Can someone please invent makeup that can also act as a sleep mask? PLEASE?
For those of you who aren’t in the know, wearing makeup to bed is BAD, very bad.
Neglecting to remove your eye make up can cause dryness, redness, irritation and best of all, INFECTION!
We recommend you use a gentle eye makeup remover rather than the mitt we are suggesting in this blog, read about our favourite product here.
Sleeping in your makeup can increase your exposure to free radicals, leading to collagen breakdown and skin that ages faster.
This is an obvious one, leaving your foundation on over night can lead to clogged pores and pimples.
Seriously, the health benefits of removing your makeup before you go to bed are end less and we won’t list them all here.
What we do have is an easy option for you if you can’t be bothered with the luke warm water and the double cleansing!
The Jane Iredale Magic Mitt, is a knitted micro-fibre cloth that relies only on water and tiny micro-fibres to penetrate and wash away oil and grime.
The mitt promoted the health of the skin because it does not affect the acid mantle. When this beneficial barrier is intact, it aide the skin in protecting itself from harmful and invasive bacteria. Acid Mantle = Best Friend!
The Jane Iredale Magic Mitt, is made from a new generation of specially knitted micro-fibres that are many times thinner than human hair and able to penetrate oil films.
The mitt breaks the surface tension of the oils that bond the makeup to the skin while the fibres gently exfoliate.
The combination of warm water and micro-fibres turn the makeup into an emulsion that is easily swept away by the mitt.
Jane Iredale, Magic Mitt, $35
It is so easy to use, simply saturate the mitt with warm water, squeeze and place the mitt over your hand. Use it as you would a washcloth and then use the clean side of the mitt to wipe any additional residue.
Best of all, you’ll be saving a whole lot of cash on makeup wipes! Why? It is a reusable mitt.
To clean the mitt, wash it in warm water with hand soap until all makeup residue is gone. Rinse thoroughly and hang it up to dry. Do not store it anything that does not allow it to dry completely. Because these unique micro-fibres slough off all organic residue and dry completely, they ensure that nothing is left on the mitt to harbour any bacteria or fungi.
