Removing your makeup is a very important step in your skincare routine. For makeup wearers, this is usually the first step in the routine so it’s important to get it right. Choosing the right makeup removers and using them properly (it’s not enough to buy the most expensive product if you are not using it properly!) will take your skin a long way. If you want to know all about makeup removers, why to use them, how to use them and what to use, keep on reading!
Why makeup removers? It’s simple, no matter how beat your makeup looks (and I have no doubt you guys slay your looks), it needs to come off before you sleep. No questions asked (because I know someone will ask the dreaded question, why can’t I just sleep with my makeup on) even the most expensive foundation doesn’t come off my itself (we all wish it did)
Our skin has pores and everything we put onto the skin goes in there too. Without taking off ALL your makeup, everything gets clogged and this shows: texture, spots, enlarged pores, congested skin etc.
WHAT & HOW
The How is every simple: each product comes with instructions on how to use it, simply follow them. Please do not make the same mistake I did and ignore the instructions then complain the product is rubbish THEN half way down the product you read the instructions and realised, actually this product is amazing SMH LOL
The ‘what’ part is the most interesting and exciting. There are so many products out there and different types to suit every skin types. Drugstore, mid-range and high end you name it, you are bound to find something that works for your skin type!
Types of Makeup Removers and my best recommendations:
Wipes- B. Pure Sensitive Micellar Water
Milks/Lotions- Kiehl’s Washable Cleansing Daily Milk
Oils- Dermalogica Pre Cleanse, B.Pure Micellar Oil
Waters e.g. micellar water- Boots Botanics Cleansing Solution, Boots No7, Bioderma
Balms- Clinique Take the Day off Balm
Tip- when taking off your makeup, follow the double cleansing method. This two-step method ensures all your makeup comes off leaving your skin clean. After removing your makeup with your chosen makeup remover, follow it with a face wash and preferably with a face brush- this will get all the stuff in the pores too. Primark has a £1 face brush which I am a huge fan of, the bristles are not harsh and it gets the job done. Plus it’s only a pound so I can easily change it every 2 to 3 months. I am still contemplating on getting the supersonic ones which can be on the expensive side but for now, the Primark one will suffice.
I have been talking a lot about skincare lately and I realised the more research I do, the more passionate I become about it. So, I am now on a mission to get my best skin ever and I am leaving no stone (product/technique) unturned! Of course, I will be taking guys with me on this journey so keep checking back for new posts ( I have started this already, check out my previous skincare posts, links will be below). I am trying to be the best me I possibly can in every aspect. Beauty is very important to me and for the longest time I have struggled with accepting my beauty. I am just coming into a place where I have accepted and happy and I am bringing everything and realising its full potential! Join me, YOU ARE SO WORTH!
