We all know that at the end of the day, it just becomes too much to remove your makeup sometimes. You are tired, hungry or probably sleepy; but no matter what the excuse, deep down you also know that removing your makeup is an absolute must. Especially because you want to get up in the morning feeling relaxed and satisfied, knowing that you have let your skin breathe throughout the night. It also makes it easier to get on with the day and start prepping your skin before you apply your makeup.
One of the other major reasons you don’t want to sleep with your makeup on is because you know it might lead to clogged pores, acne, rash and so many more problems. So, here are steps to remove your makeup completely and you shouldn’t miss out on any of them.
The first step to remove your makeup is to remove your foundation. Apply your favorite cleanser, let it sit for a couple of minutes before you easily swipe off your makeup.
If you have applied an eye-liner, mascara or the likes, you must use an oil-based remover, so that you don’t stress your skin and eyelashes while getting rid of your waterproof makeup. Remember not to scrub your eyes, instead just gently let the cotton pad soaked with your oil-based remover do its magic before you wipe your eyes clean.
If you feel like your pores are clogged; you can fill your sink with hot water, cover your head with a towel and enjoy the steam for 2 minutes.
Once you’ve removed your makeup, you should use a gentle face wash to remove any remaining impurities.
Apply a serum on your face and neck, let the ingredients seep into your skin and do their magic. Serums help tackle skin concerns like dry skin, pores, acne, aging and so on. Choose a serum that works for you and be consistent. For it to work, you’ve got to keep using it regularly.
If your skin seems dry, you can end the routine by applying a gentle moisturizer.
So, there you go, a step-by-step guide to remove your makeup!
