Steps For Makeup Removal
Use Wipes to Remove Facial Makeup
Many people only go as far as this step, but it is not enough. Yes, you will be able to remove the makeup, but wipes cannot unclog your skin pores. You need to go a step further. Clogged pores result into blemishes and pimples.
Cleanse Off Your Eye Makeup First
Since the most difficult places to wash off makeup from are the eyes, it is advised to use a liquid specially made for removing eye makeup to clean off the mascara and eyeliner. If not properly removed, the skin around the eyes may get irritated causing rushes.
Wash Your Face
You should not use hot water but rather go for warm water. Splash it on your face then use a gentle cleanser. Massage it gently onto your face with circular motions. Rub deeply but gently to regain proper blood flow to the skin. After this, use warm water to cleanse it off. Hot water will dry up your skin while cold water will force the skin to tighten closing up the breathing pores.
Dry The Face
Pat the skin dry using a soft cloth. You should not rub the face or use a rough cloth because this might irritate the skin resulting in rashes and redness.
Apply a Toner
Toning ensures that all leftover makeup is removed. You will be assured that the skin’s pores are not clogged by stubborn to remove makeup. The process might not be necessary if you washed thoroughly with a quality cleanser.
Apply a Moisturizer
