Not every facial cleanser can wipe your face free of makeup thoroughly. That is why it's important to add a gentle, skin-friendly makeup remover to your makeup bag as well. Makeup remover will wipe away the accumulation of makeup, dirt and excess oils that your skin has accumulated throughout the day. Sometimes makeup can be left on for 10 to 14 hours before it's removed and your pores are able to breathe.
Makeup remover comes in cream and liquid forms. Both styles have the ability to whisk away heavy makeup, dirt and oil. Makeup remover should be applied on your face, using a cotton swab or soft tissue. Using a rough face cloth or toilet paper will take off the very thin top layers of the skin, leaving you more defenseless to skin irritations. Makeup should first be removed using makeup remover. Cleansing and toning should follow to rid the face of any leftover makeup. A proper skin care regime always ends with moisturizer.
Eyes are the major area where makeup is applied. Due to the delicate skin around the eyes, most makeup removers can be found specifically formulated for the eyes. These products are typically oil- and fragrance-free, so that sensitive eyes will be protected. Fragrance-free makeup remover can also be used by contact lens wearers.
