How To Remove Your Make-Up The Correct Way

If we had to create a list of golden beauty rules, removing your make-up after a long day would be right up there. And don’t think you’re in the clear just because you wear minimal make-up. Even if your routine only includes a few coats of mascara and a layer of tinted moisturiser, a thorough make-up removal step needs to be added to your skincare routine before bedtime. Here’s why…

Leaving your face on overnight could result in a number of unnecessary problems for your skin, such as blocked pores, which leads to unwanted blemishes and eventually full-on breakouts (we’re talking worst-case scenario here). If your skin has large pores, neglected make-up removal will also make them appear larger in size. This could lead to your overall complexion looking dull and your skin feeling dry and becoming much more prone to sensitivity and infections. So, the verdict is… Remove your make-up… But make it enjoyable!

Remove your make-up like a pro

An oil-based cleanser works a treat if you wear full-coverage foundation or cream blush. Add a few drops to your fingertips and massage your face while watching the make-up effortlessly melt off. Rinse the excess with warm water and wipe your skin with a white face cloth to keep track of any leftover bits. If you wear eyeshadow and lipstick often, choose a product dedicated to help with the removal of it. Dab some of the formula onto a cotton pad and gently swipe across your lips and eyes. If you experience skin sensitivity, opt for a gentle micellar water to remove your make-up. It’ll keep your skin hydrated without disrupting your skin barrier. It also does a stellar job removing any type of make-up. Once you’ve reached squeaky-clean status, spritz your skin with a calming mist to soothe, and finish off with a protective night cream.
