How To Remove Your Makeup The Right Way
By Zoey Phoon
Sorry to break it to you but water just isn’t enough and if you’re the type who loves to rock a full face then one makeup remover won’t be enough.
Don’t ever be lazy when it comes to removing your makeup. If it has already been on your face for the whole day, don’t tell me you think it’s okay to sleep with it too! When you leave your makeup overnight, you’re truly just asking for clogged pores, breakouts, dull skin and more.
Here’s 4 steps to follow when removing a full face of makeup:
1. CLEANSING BALM/OIL
By using a cleansing balm or oil first, you’re able to “break down” the makeup on your face before you start actually removing it. This is because everything you have done on your face is set with powder and high tech setting sprays so if you’re justy going to use a wipe, the tugging and rubbing is going to hurt.
2. FACIAL WIPES
Now that all the makeup on you has been loosened up, you can proceed with facial wipes to gently wipe all the nasties off your face. The best part about cleansing balms/oils is that it takes everything off so now, all you gotta do is wipe.
3. EYE MAKEUP REMOVER
Oh, you thought all makeup removers were the same? Hunny, no! When it comes to eye makeup, use an eye makeup remover to clean yourself up. The eyes are one of the most sensitive parts of our body. Imagine tugging on it, you’re not only going to get wrinkles but you might cause an infection out of it. Remember to always use eye makeup remover that is made to be gentle on the eyes to remove your eye makeup.
4. SCRUB UP
Makeup tends to build up in your pores so it is definitely a good idea to exfoliate at the end of your makeup removing regime. Get all that nasties out and make sure you moisturise after!
