Why Use Makeup Remover?
Do you wake up with black smudges under your eyes or makeup on your pillow? Although, washing your face and removing makeup prior to going to bed may be the last thing you want to do when you are exhausted, it is the most important step in preventing aging skin, eye infections, irritated skin and breakouts.
Yes, it is an extra step in your night time routine; however, it actually speeds up the process so you can crawl into bed quicker. Not only does it do the heavy work in cleaning the skin, it nourishes the skin as well. If you only use a soap - based product to remove makeup, you are working harder tugging on eyelashes and the skin to remove makeup and may only be removing surface makeup rather than a thorough makeup removal. Imagine how many chemicals accumulate in your skin with your daily makeup regimen. Doesn’t it make sense to want to thoroughly remove makeup and the resulting chemicals from your skin? It may be an extra step, but certainly one worth taking. Let’s examine how!
How Do I Properly Use Makeup Remover?
The best way to use makeup remover is before using a soap or cleanser. It will remove the toughest of makeup and prepare the skin for washing. Beware of your skin type and what remover works best for you. For example, if you have sensitive skin or chronically dry eyes you will need a different type of makeup remover than someone with oily skin. If your skin is sensitive or dry you might want to avoid alcohol - based makeup removers, and likewise if your skin is oily be cautious about using removers with baby oil as it might clog pores and cause breakouts. Sensitive skin usually responds better to liquid-based makeup removers rather than pre-moistened wipes. Follow these few steps to achieve the best results.
- Choose the appropriate remover for your skin type
- If it is liquid based as opposed to a pre-moistened wipe, it is recommended to use a natural cotton ball or pad to avoid irritating the sensitive skin around the eye.
- For eye makeup, begin in the corner of your eye and gently wipe the cotton pad/ball across to the outer portion of the eye. Avoid wiping in haste. Hold the cotton pad/ball over eye for a minute to dissolve the product, then gently wipe away.
- Be sure the pad or ball is soaked with the remover to make it easier to remove without tugging at the eye.
- Proceed removing face make up by starting at the nose and wiping toward the ear. Continue all over the face using upward and circular motions as this also helps massage the skin to increase blood flow to the skin’s surface.
- Avoid makeup removers that contain alcohol, fragrances or preservatives.
As many makeup removers contain cleansing ingredients, it is important to wash your face with your favorite cleanser after using makeup remover. If makeup remover remains on the skin, depending on the type of remover you choose, you may be exposing your skin to excess fragrances, chemicals, emulsifiers and in some cases, Formaldehyde used as a preservative. For this reason, it is important to choose a natural makeup remover such as, Timeless Makeup Remover & Nourisher.
