After having spent a long tiring day, the last thing you would want to do is drag yourself to the bathroom to remove your makeup. However, this is something you will have to do regardless. If you wear makeup on a daily basis, you should also remember removing it at night.
However, do you know how to remove it successfully without harming your skin? Or What products should you use? Or How much time will you need? These are just a few of the questions that you need to know the answers to about completely removing your makeup successfully.
Let us share some of the essentials that you will require to help remove your makeup.
The first thing you will need would be a good makeup remover. If you are in a hurry, you can use makeup removing wipes but if you want to remove all of it properly, then the wipes won’t be of much help. Moreover, sleeping with makeup on can lead to several skin problems such as acne, or dry or irritated skin. Hence, it’s really important to take off all of your makeup at night if you want a fresh glowing skin in the morning.
Wash your face with your daily cleanser specifically formulated to remove makeup. While doing so, ensure that you massage the application properly for around 20 seconds after which you shouldn’t forget to cleanse under your eyes and around the chin area. Keep gently scrubbing until no more foundation or blush comes off onto the cotton pad.
To remove it from your eyes, you need to be extra careful as that area is highly sensitive. The best way to remove it from your eyes is to utilize cotton pads. Soak the cotton pad in the cleanser, ensure that you keep your eyes closed the entire time and keep the pad held onto your lids for about 20 seconds. This will let the cleanser melt your makeup and then all you have to do is wipe it off.
Give your eyes special attention because mascara and the liner are the most stubborn products to get rid off so always use an oil based makeup remover especially if you are using waterproof products. Once you are through with removing makeup from your eyes, use the cotton pad again and remove your lip color. However if the product is long wearing and highly pigmented, you will need an oil-based formula as compared to a liquid or a cream makeup remover.
Take Your Time
One more important tip for when you are taking off your makeup is to give it some time. Do not rush through the process. Allow the remover to sit on your face for a while before you move onto the next step. When it comes to removing your makeup, following the approach of the slower the better will let the cleanser do its job, so the remaining makeup comes off easily.
After having been through the process of cleansing your skin and completely removing your makeup, the next step you could follow is to use a moisturizer or toner. Removing makeup can most often leave your face dry so don’t forget to moisturize in the end in order to keep your skin hydrated and soft.
Removing your makeup should be part of every woman`s skincare routine and it is also absolutely necessary to have a clean skin in the morning. Be sure to give it some extra care after an entire day of wearing makeup and always be gentle with your skin. However, sometimes your skin needs some makeup free days in order to breathe. The key is to moisturize and keep yourself hydrated.
