Tips For Removing Makeup Safely

1. Use Makeup Remover

Choose a light makeup remover for your skin type. Micellar water is soothing and good for most skin types, while oil-based removers work well for waterproof makeup.

2. Start With Eyes And Lips

Remove eye makeup and lipstick first. To release makeup, gently press a cotton pad or cosmetic wipe soaked in remover over closed eyes or lips for a few seconds before wiping away.

3. Gentle

Don't tug or rub skin. Makeup removal should be done gently outward to avoid irritating the delicate skin around the eyes.

4. Double Cleanse

After removing makeup, use a gentle face cleanser to eliminate pollutants. A thorough clean is achieved with double cleansing.

5. Use Lukewarm Water

Wash your face with lukewarm water, as hot water can strip the skin of its natural oils and cause dryness.

6. Pat Dry

 After cleansing, pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Avoid rubbing, which can cause irritation.

7. Consider Makeup Removing Tools

Cleansing brushes, konjac sponges, and reusable makeup remover cloths are excellent and eco-friendly alternatives to wipes and cotton pads.

8. Pay Attention

 Some areas, like the hairline, jawline, and sides of the nose, can accumulate makeup residue. Take extra care to cleanse these areas thoroughly.

9. Remove Face Makeup

Remove foundation, concealer, and blush using the same gentle washing procedure. Focus on makeup-prone regions like the nostrils and chin.

10. Don't Skip The Neck 

If you applied makeup to your neck or décolletage, ensure to cleanse these areas too.
