We get it. Spending copious amounts of time using makeup remover at the end of a long day can be up there among the least appealing of tasks; especially when that stubborn waterproof mascara just will not budge. But the importance of a proper cleanse isn’t just advisory – it’s necessary. The effects of inadequate makeup removal range from oiliness, acne breakouts, or dryness, yet so many of us aren’t doing it properly (those early morning panda eyes are a huge giveaway …).
But removing your makeup needn’t be a chore; coupled with the right luxurious products – it can be the perfect way to relax and unwind. So follow our tips on how to remove makeup, including waterproof makeup, and leave your skin bare-faced, beautiful and radiant.
1. Use Micellar Cleansing Water
Focus initially on getting rid of your surface-level foundation and eye makeup with a simple makeup remover. Not only will this get rid of the initial bulk of the product, but will allow you to get deeper into the skin when it comes to your second cleanse.
A Micellar Cleansing Water, such as our formula with Rose Petals is ideal for this. Using micelles; tiny balls of cleansing molecules suspended in water, it very gently breaks down makeup and purifies the complexion without drying the skin.
Simply soak a soft cotton pad and lightly sweep over your face to remove your make up.
