We should be taking off your makeup off with as much care and precision as when you apply it. But do you really? We’re all guilty of using a face wipe, splashing some water on our face and jumping into bed. However, whether it’s lipstick, mascara, eye shadow or foundation, each area should be treated differently.
Wet a cotton pad with warm water, squeeze your cleanser onto the pad and spread it evenly. Press it onto your lips for a few seconds and then with firm strokes wipe away the lipstick or lip-gloss. Rinse off with warm water.
Wet a cotton pad with warm water, squeeze the cleanser onto the pad and spread it evenly. Fold the cotton pad in half and gently brush over the lashes using an upwards and downwards motion. This ensures you remove any traces of mascara stuck in-between and on the base of your lashes. Rinse off with warm water.
Wet a cotton pad with warm water, squeeze the cleanser onto the pad and spread it evenly. Place the pads firmly on the eyes and use a gentle circular motion to remove any eye make-up. Rinse off with warm water.
Use a face wipe to remove foundation followed by a pea-sized amount of cleanser into your palm and spread evenly all over your face. Massage the cleanser onto your face and neck using firm circular motions. Repeat the process and rinse off with warm water. Pat your skin dry with a dry face cloth. Always pat never rub it’s much gentler on the skin.
Remember don’t be too vigorous when removing makeup. This can do more harm than good and leave your face feeling sore.
