You remember the golden rule of skincare, don’t you? Never go to bed with makeup on. But what do you do if you run out of your makeup remover and don’t have time to buy a new one? Call it quits and let the smudged mascara and ‘long-lasting’ lipstick you put in the morning, stay on your face all night? Absolutely not!

No matter what, you need to wipe the slate (read: your face) clean before you hit the sheets so your skin can breathe and glow in the morning. Otherwise you know what happens. You’ve read the scary stories of speedy ageing and dark circles, right? We thought so.
