Are you confident you are removing your makeup correctly every evening. Often in the morning shower, we’re surprised at how much foundation and eye makeup comes off, despite using cleanser the previous night.
Stubborn makeup can harm the skin, causing a lacklustre complexion and even breakouts. Make sure you follow these tips from Allure to ensure a clean face at bedtime.
1. Break Down Your Makeup with Cleanser
Your daily cleanser should be sufficient to take off foundation and blush. Massage the cleanser over your face and let it sit for 15 seconds, and don’t forget your hairline, under your chin, and around your ears. Then wipe with a wet, white cotton washcloth, so you can really see that all the makeup is gone. If your foundation is long- wearing or you use a face brush, you can go over your face with remover first. Keep gently scrubbing until no more foundation or blush comes off on the washcloth.
2. Always Be Gentle with Your Skin
The process of taking off your makeup should be gentle and should never leave your skin dehydrated or irritated. I like to use a cleansing oil, which won’t dry out your face. Using your fingers, swipe a small amount of oil across your lids, eyebrows, and lips, and then lightly massage it all over your face. This will soften your skin and loosen the makeup, so you don’t have to rub like crazy. Then take a flat, square cotton pad and pour a little cleansing oil on it. Go over the same spots again, being careful not to scrub back and forth. Just skim the surface in one direction to pull up the color.
3. Take Advantage of Steam Heat
You can also steam your face before washing. Fill up your sink or a bowl with hot water and hover your face over it for a minute or two. The steam will loosen up your pores and make it easier for the cleaner to penetrate the skin deeper to remove makeup and debris. This might have the extra time to steam your skin, but it’s a good occasional option. You can even add a drop of lavender essential oil for extra soothing, spa vibes.
4. Give your Eyes Extra Attention
Mascara and liner are the hardest to get off, but you don’t want to scrub — the skin around the eyes is sensitive. Cotton balls leave fibres behind, so use a cotton pad and either an oil-based (for waterproof products) or dual-phase (for everything else) remover specifically for the eyes. Pre-soaked pads are fine. Close your eyes and hold them over your lids and lashes for about ten seconds to give the remover time to dissolve the product before wiping.
