Women mostly tend to sleep with their make-up on out of sheer tiredness or plain laziness without sparing a thought for their poor skin. Going to bed with make-up on can clog the skin pores, aggravate acne and damage your skin. Removing make-up is as important as wearing make-up. No matter how tired you feel, it always does good to sleep without any muck on your face so that your skin can breathe freely. That fresh feeling that you experience after cleaning yourself might even give you a sound sleep.
After returning home, rest a while before removing make-up. It can be little tacky and so do not get irritated and ruin your skin by rubbing too hard in the process.
Take a small piece of cotton or a cotton ball and put a small quantity of a suitable cleanser, baby oil or make-up remover (coconut oil or olive oil will also do) onto the ball. Very gently rub over the face to remove the makeup. Use another ball for lipstick.
As for eyes, we need a small narrow piece of cotton that does not bend much. Moisten a cotton ball with eye makeup remover and remove all traces of makeup by gently wiping each eye until the makeup dissolves. Avoid using cleanser on the eyes as it can be very drying. You can use a face moisturizer to remove the eyeliner. Remove it in exactly the same way you applied it – in sweeping motions, from in to out. Never rub the eyelids. It can enhance the advent of wrinkles as well as crows-feet.
This done, dab (dab, not rub) a clean dry tissue all over the face to remove oil. Then wash with a mild soap or face wash or whatever one is used to. Use lukewarm water for this purpose. Wash twice if necessary and rinse several times until you are free of all the make-up residues from your face. Dab dry with soft towel and then moisturize to prevent dryness.Pic credits:fotosearch.com
