You’ve finally made it home after an 8-hour day of work, only to realize you need to remove your makeup. Your eyeliner’s smudged, you have dark circles under your eyes, and your face feels like it’s one layer of foundation away from cracking off like dry mud. Don’t worry! With the right tools and techniques, removing makeup doesn’t have to be hard or time-consuming—you can do it in just five minutes!
Cleansing your face is the first and most important step in any makeup removal routine. You need to use a cleanser that is appropriate for your skin type in order to avoid over-drying or irritating your skin. Once you have removed all of the makeup, it is important to moisturize your skin. This will help to replenish any moisture that was lost during the cleansing process. It also helps to leave your skin feeling soft and smooth so you don’t feel like there’s anything left on your skin. It is always a good idea to find out what kind of cleanser works best for your specific needs before making a purchase.
For example, some people may need an oil-free cleanser if they are prone to breakouts due to clogged pores. Whatever you decide to do, make sure that whatever product you use does not contain any artificial colors or fragrances which could irritate your skin even more. If possible, stay away from products containing alcohol because this could lead to drying out the skin making it vulnerable to acne.
Make up remover wipes should only be used as a last resort because each time you remove makeup using these kinds of products; harsh chemicals are released into the air which could lead to breathing problems or eye irritation.
The order you use them in
Never go to bed with your makeup on! Sleeping in your makeup can cause all sorts of problems, from breakouts to premature aging. Invest in a good makeup remover. You don’t need to spend a lot of money, but make sure you get something that will work well for your skin type. Start with a clean face. Apply the makeup remover to your face and use circular motions to remove it. For stubborn eye makeup, let the remover sit for a few seconds before wiping it off. Use a tissue or cotton ball to wipe off excess oil-based residue left behind by oily products like liquid eyeliner or mascara. Pat dry and apply moisturizer so that your skin doesn’t dry out overnight and start producing more oil due to the increased production of sebum (oil).
1) Remove foundation and powder
To remove foundation and powder, start by using a makeup remover wipe to take off the bulk of your makeup. Then, use a cotton ball soaked in micellar water to remove any stubborn residue. Finally, rinse your face with lukewarm water and pat it dry with a clean towel. For extra-stubborn makeup, repeat these steps until your skin is completely clean.
2) Wipe off eyeliner, mascara, and eyeshadow
To remove makeup from your eyes, start by using a cotton pad or ball soaked in an oil-based makeup remover. Gently wipe the pad over your eyeliner, mascara, and eyeshadow until it’s all off. Don’t forget to get the inner corners of your eyes! Next, use a mild cleanser and warm water to remove any remaining traces of makeup. The best way to do this is with a gentle facial scrub. You can also make your own scrub with sugar, olive oil, and sea salt if you want to go natural. Rinse the cleanser off after 2 minutes (no more!) with lukewarm water and pat dry with a towel or tissue.
3) The steps for each skin type
If you have dry skin, you might think that skipping the makeup remover is no big deal. But even if you don’t wear foundation or concealer, chances are you’re still wearing some sort of makeup. Whether it’s mascara, eyeshadow, or lipstick, it’s important to remove your makeup before going to bed.
Here are five tips for removing every last bit of makeup, no matter your skin type.
Makeup Removing Tip #1: Make sure you use a cleanser with gentle ingredients like oatmeal, cucumber, aloe vera and chamomile.
Makeup Removing Tip #2: A lot of people forget about the eyelashes and eyebrows when they’re trying to take off their makeup at night. Make sure to go over them with a cotton swab dipped in eye make-up remover.
MakeUp Removing Tip #3: One of the most frustrating parts about taking off your make up can be how long it takes and how many products you need to do so. With these easy steps, you’ll be able to remove all traces of makeup from your face quickly and easily.
MakeUp Removing Tip #4: Moisturize after washing off your makeup! As tempting as it may be to just hop into bed, it’s important not to skip this step. Your skin will thank you for doing so in the morning! Wet down a washcloth and then dip it in warm water.
Put the washcloth on your face, closing your eyes and rubbing gently until you feel that there’s no more makeup left on your skin. Then, rinse off the washcloth and pat dry with another clean towel. When you’re done, put on moisturizer while you’re waiting for your pores to close back up again (generally 10 minutes). It doesn’t hurt to slather on a few extra drops – your skin will soak it right up and you’ll wake up feeling refreshed tomorrow morning.
