Importance Of Removing Makeup

When you sleep, your skin renews itself, and wearing makeup prevents this from happening. It is important to remove makeup before going to bed since it can do severe damage to your skin overnight. The biggest mistake you’re probably making is sleeping with makeup on. Your makeup can wreak havoc on your skin overnight.

Because most makeup contains oily ingredients, it clogs your pores and contributes to the appearance of additional acne and blackhead breakouts the next day. Also , sleeping with your makeup on might result in infections. Your eyeliner and mascara pick up bacteria throughout the day. When you don't wash off your makeup every evening, you're allowing germs to proliferate near the eye area, which is extremely sensitive and can get quickly contaminated.

Going to bed with your makeup on might cause your skin to dry out because leftover residue can form a barrier that stops your moisturizer from accessing your skin. Furthermore, some makeup formulas contain chemicals that draw moisture from the skin, resulting in dry skin.

When makeup residue and the ingredients that make it up your makeup are left on your skin for hours on end during the night, they can cause a variety of skin imperfections. That is why it is critical to use a makeup remover before going to bed, followed by hydrating your face to allow your skin to breathe properly.

Step-by-step makeup removal

  •   Wash your hands well. 
  •   Pour a small quantity of makeup remover, micellar water or facial cleanser onto a cotton pad. Of course, some products can be applied directly to wet skin, without requiring the use of a pad. 
  •   Sweep the cotton pad over your face; or lather the product with your fingers (in the case of cleansers applied directly to skin). Avoid harsh rubbing. 
  •   Repeat until your cotton pad comes up free of all makeup and impurities. 
  •   Take a clean, soft face cloth, rinse it under hot water and use it to wipe away any residual product from your face.
  •   End by applying toner with a cotton pad to top off the cleansing, restore your skin’s pH balance and prepare it for moisturizer. 

Tips to protect your skin as you remove make-up. There are a number of make-up removers that you can buy but there are a few things you should take into consideration.

  • Use an oil-based makeup remover to remove water-resistant makeup.
  • For mascara, eyeliner, and kaajal, use a specific eye make-up remover.
  • To remove waterproof eye make-up, place a cotton pad soaked with remover over your closed eye for a few seconds. This will give the remover enough time to melt the make-up.
  • Your regular cleanser should be sufficient to remove foundation and concealer. To remove make-up, avoid rubbing your eyes and face. Be kind to yourself.
  • In the situation of lipstick, remove it using your eye make-up remover. After you've removed it, apply some petroleum jelly or ghee to your lips to keep them moisturized.
