6 Makeup Removal Tips
Removing makeup every day is a tricky process
as you don't want to pull or tug the delicate skin around the
eyes nor do you want to cause your skin to dry out by using
a harsh cleanser and/or makeup remover. Let's take a look at
six important points to keep in mind when removing your makeup
First of all baby
shampoo is an excellent way to remove mascara that is resistant to other kinds of removers. Waterproof mascara
can be one of the most difficult mascaras to remove as it is
designed for staying power and a little bit of baby shampoo
applied to a cotton ball or your finger tips should do the
tricky nicely. Baby shampoos contain lower concentrations and
softer detergents than other shampoos which makes them less
irritating to the eye area. Baby shampoo can also be used to
remove makeup on the face but use a very small amount as too
much can be drying to the skin. Another option for the removal
of waterproof mascara is extra- virgin olive oil. Olive oil
is very gentle to the skin and ideal to use in the eye area
as it is a natural anti-oxidant and does not contain any harmful
substances. All you need to do is apply a few drops to your
fingertips, a tissue or a cotton ball, and while keeping your
eyes closed massage the eyelashes in a gentle motion until
all traces of the mascara are gone. Then use a mild soap or
cleanser and water to clean up further.
majority of cosmetics are oil-soluble which makes baby
oil an excellent way to remove all traces of eye makeup, blush,
foundation, and concealer and so on. All that is needed is
to apply a tiny bit of baby oil to a tissue and then gently
wipe it all over your face until the makeup is all gone. After
you finish there is no need to use soap of any kind, simply
rinse your face with cool water and your skin should feel soft
to the touch.
fourth tip is one that can never be stressed enough - never
ever go to bed with your makeup still on! Not only
will you stain your pillowcase but also you will be contributing
the clogging of your pores that can lead to acne, breakouts,
splotchiness and a host of other potential skin problems. No
matter how tired you are, take the time to remove the day's
makeup and grime off of your face and let it breath and regenerate
while you sleep!
fifth tip is to always
use a mild makeup remover - nothing
harsh or drying to the skin- and never use makeup remover that
is specifically for your eyes on other parts of your face.
This is particularly important if you suffer from oily skin
as this can lead to break outs. Pay attention to what the label
says as it specifies these things for a reason!
The sixth tip is to not
remove your eye makeup with any kind of cleanser. Keep in mind that the eye area is very sensitive
and delicate and you don't want to injure it in any way or
cause an allergic reaction to take place. Also some people
are prone to oily eyelids and you don't want to encourage an
overabundance of oil in this area. If oily eyelids are not
a problem you might to consider using petroleum jelly (such
as Vaseline) to take off your eye makeup but remember to be
gentle! Use a tissue or cotton ball to take off your eyeshade
and a Q-tip to get rid of the eyeliner.
It's best to always start by removing your eye makeup first.
Always choose a facial cleanser that is meant for your particular
skin type and if possible purchase one that has been tested
to both breakdown and remove makeup from the face. All cleansers
are not designed for this purpose and some soap as well does
not thoroughly remove makeup from the face. Go over your face
gently more than once but be as precise as possible. Do the
same thing when you rinse, rinse a number of times to remove
all traces of both cosmetic and cleanser residue.
