Sometimes no matter how thoroughly you scrub and lather up, it still seems like you just cannot get all your makeup off. The process of taking off your makeup should be gentle and should never leave your skin dehydrated or irritated. The following tips will help you to get a perfectly bare and makeup-free face.
- Start with a makeup remover
When it comes to removing eye makeup in particular, the slower you go, the better. Apply makeup remover with a cotton pad such as the ORÍKÌ Spring water makeup remover w/ cucumber extract and let it sit. Give it a couple minutes, this will soften mascara, liner, and shadow so it slips off easily and thoroughly once you finally wipe. If you do this, you will not find smudges under your eyes in the morning. Giving makeup remover time to work its magic will also prevent you from having to scrub with your makeup-remover pad continuously because friction can damage the delicate skin around your eyes, causing irritation and contributing to premature ageing. To coax clumps off without doing harm, make sure you give your remover enough time.
- Use a cleanser made to remove makeup
Sometimes people use any old kind of soap they have in their bathroom to remove their makeup but its essential to use a makeup remover or makeup remover wipes to do the job. Massage the cleanser over your face and let it sit for 10 to 15 seconds, and do not forget your hairline, under your chin, and around your ears. You could use a cleanser like the ORÍKÌ Gentle Foam Citrus Cleanser or the Oatmeal Purifying Cleanser. These are among the most effective at coaxing off even the most stubborn makeup, like stay-put foundations, liquid lipsticks, and brow pigments. Lastly, wipe off with a wet white cotton washcloth, so you can really see that all the makeup is gone.
- Give the Edges of Your Eyelid Extra Attention
Mascara and liner are the hardest to get off, but you do not want to scrub too aggressively because the skin around the eyes is sensitive. Cotton balls leave fibers behind, so use a cotton pad. Close your eyes and hold the cotton pad over your lids and lashes for about ten seconds to give the remover time to dissolve the product before wiping.
- Get Rid of Any Excess Oil
After you have removed your eye makeup, take another pass with a dry cotton pad to make sure you get off any last bits of product and the excess makeup remover, too. This will prevent mascara circles in the morning and improve your makeup application the next day.
- Always Follow Up Makeup Removal with Moisture
Now that you have gently removed your makeup and cleansed your skin, you can follow up with a toner like the ORÍKÌ Herbal Skin Clearing Toner with Green Tea, and then a moisturizer to hydrate your sin. When you wake up in the morning, you will be ready to take on the day with sparkling clean skin. Remember that whatever your skin type, washing at night is a must. Do not go to sleep with makeup on.
