Fresh starts are nice. If you want clear, bright skin in the morning, you must remove any makeup. Taking off your makeup at night is the ultimate skincare. Just sleeping with makeup on may promote dry skin, acne, and even wrinkles due to collagen breakdown. Leaving eye makeup on causes eye infections, discomfort, styes, and damaged lashes. Every night, remove your makeup.
Take Your Time
You work. We see! There’s a lot to do, and some evenings you’ll be too tired to spend much time on your face.
When you can, take your time removing makeup and cleaning your face. You should remove your makeup and cleanse your face in two phases, carefully and softly.
Using a makeup removal wipe or just washing your face won’t do when you’re covered in makeup. And that gets us to our next point.
Remove eye makeup
Waterproof mascara and eyeliner aren’t always removed with an ordinary wipe. Use an oil-based waterproof makeup remover.
Close your eyes and dab some makeup remover on a cotton pad. Wait a few seconds. This permits the makeup remover to dissolve the waterproof makeup. Then swipe down. Close your eyes and gently brush away mascara from the base of your lashes. Don’t scrub.
Remember: don’t rough up your skin!
When using your wipe to take the day off, remember to be careful with your skin, especially the sensitive area around your eyes, to avoid damaging it. You should avoid scrubbing or pull on your skin.
If you are overly harsh with your skin, you may end up damaging it, which is the exact opposite of what you want!
Rinse Well And Pat Dry
Rinse away all of the cleansers from your face once you’ve completely washed it with it. Use a clean towel to gently wipe it dry after that. Please remember not to rub your face!
The final step is moisturizing. This may not appear related to removing makeup, but it is!
After removing makeup and cleaning your face, hydrate your skin to avoid dryness. Massage in your moisturizer and you’re set for bed!
Benefit from Steam Heat
You may also steam your face. Fill a sink or a dish with hot water and hold it there for a few minutes. The steam will open your pores and allow the cleaner to go deeper into your skin to remove makeup and dirt. It takes longer to steam your skin, but it’s an excellent choice. Add a drop of lavender essential oil for a spa-like effect.
Cleansing oils that remove makeup work like micellar water, but without the water suspension.
These oil cleansers remove waterproof makeup while hydrating the skin. Washing your face with oil may sound unusual, but it benefits your skin by preserving natural oils. After applying oil or micellar water, you may not need to rinse (check the instructions on your product to be sure).
Consider double-cleaning as a sweep. First, use a cotton pad with your preferred cleanser or micellar water, focusing on any curves or deep crevices, such as around your nose. Then, using your second cleanser, massage it into your skin with lukewarm water. Finally, use a mild non-comedogenic moisturizer as a protective barrier.
DIY Makeup Remover
It’s easy to manufacture your own makeup remover, despite what beauty corporations claim.
Oils are great for removing makeup. No need to use a high-end oil cleaner to achieve this effect. Makeup may be removed using affordable items like coconut, olive, or jojoba oil.
Use witch hazel, a natural astringent, alone or combined with oil to remove makeup.
Dry skin might benefit from washing with simple oil before night. If you have oily skin, use a cleanser after removing your makeup with a DIY solution.
