Properly removing makeup is as important as wearing makeup. If it’s not removed thoroughly, it can cause pimples and acne. Makeup blocks the skin pores, due to which the skin cannot breathe easily. These blocked pores cause infections, pimples, blackheads etc. Wrinkles can easily attack your skin if you don’t remove makeup properly. Eye makeup, if not removed can cause eye infections like pink eye, irritation, improper vision, etc. Eye makeup removal is also essential to maintain healthy eyes. Nation Next brings to you these effective make-up removal tips, through which you can keep your skin healthy and can enjoy wearing make-up without facing any skin problems.
Point 1: Start the cleansing by gradually removing your eye make-up. Select a cleanser, which is suitable for your skin type. Place the cleanser on a cotton ball. Remove your eye shadow with that cotton ball. I recommend using eye makeup removers as they are readily available in the stores. Lancome and Neutrogena make for great eye makeup removers. Olive oil is also one of the best techniques to remove eye makeup especially mascara. Dab some olive oil on a cotton ball and gently wipe your lashes. Olive oil not only helps you to remove mascara but also to nourish your eyelashes.
Point 2: To remove lipstick, petroleum jelly is the best product. Apply it on your lips and blot it.
Point 3: Now, apply a good cleanser to your face and gently massage it for 10 to 15 seconds. Take some cotton balls and wipe your face gently. MAC’s cleanse off oil is my favourite. Disposable, pre-moistened makeup remover tissues that are available in market can also be used to remove makeup.
Point 4: Use a mild face wash and rinse your face with luke warm water.
Point 5: Apply a toner with a cotton ball and then apply a moisturiser or a night cream to your face.
