Removing Makeup Tips and Tricks

The prettiest makeup finish starts with the cleanest skin. The first step to clean, clear skin is thoroughly removing makeup with the right products. There’s certainly no shortage of products to choose from. From Micellar Water, wipes, and butter cleanser there no shortage of makeup removers.

Tip #1

Find a product that’s made for your skin type.

Tip #2

The two simple rules for choosing a makeup removal product are: don’t use something that’s too harsh on your skin and avoid cleansers that leave a greasy residue. Beyond that, the right one for you depends on how you expect the product to perform. If you have dry, flaky skin, use an exfoliating or a moisturizing cleanser. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, a product with salicylic acid may be the one for you.

Tip #3

Simply the best makeup remover claims to take off even the most stubborn makeup, like semi-permanent eyeliner and waterproof mascara, without all the scrubbing and rubbing that can irritate sensitive skin. Ponds offers MoistureClean Towelettes. This cleanser comes in the form of a moist wipe that contains natural ingredients like green tea ginseng, cucumber extract, aloe, cornflower, and chamomile in addition to cleansers.

Tip #4

Generally, any cleanser does double duty as a face makeup remover. However, the eyes are usually a different story for a couple of reasons: The skin around the eye is especially sensitive and some cleansers may irritate the eyeball itself. Not many products are marketed solely as face-makeup removers, but many say they are exclusively for taking off eye makeup.

Tip #5

Nivea’s Visage Eye Makeup Remover works well and is inexpensive. It sounds oversimplified, but it’s not a bad idea to gauge a product by the effort it takes to work. Your lashes have a higher purpose than just making your eyes look pretty. Excessive scrubbing can inflame the eye and break or pull out lashes you need to protect your eyes from debris.
