The skin around your eyes is extremely delicate. If you want to avoid any irritations and discomfort, you should take proper care of the eye area. One of the most important stages of care is make-up removal. Check how to do it the right way.
Why is it that important to remove make-up?
The eye area on your face is very thin and sensitive. If you remove your make-up incorrectly, the make-up residues can harm the skin. Mascara can cause eyelash fragility, eyeshadows and eyeliner can irritate the eyes and skin around them. What’s more, the residues along with sebum, dust and sweat can clog the pores, cause acne and blackheads.
How to remove make-up properly?
At first, it’s important to choose the cosmetics that are suitable for your skin type and the problems you experience with it. Only such products will thoroughly remove the make-up and cleanse the skin. Also, you should be very gentle so as not to damage the lashes and the skin. So how to do it correctly? Soak a cotton pad in a make-up remover and hold it against your eyelid. After a while the product should dissolve. If cosmetics remain on the skin, repeat this step until the cotton pad is completely clean. This way of removing make-up will protect you from irritations and premature wrinkles. Once finished, don’t forget to apply a moisturising face and eye creams.
Which make-up remover to use?
The best choice would be delicate, alcohol-free make-up removers. Cleansing the face with soap is not the best idea either as it can damage the natural hydrolipid skin layer. That is why delicate products are recommended for eye make-up removal. These will include, among others: cleansing milk, micellar water, two-phase make-up remover. It is important that these cosmetics are chosen for your type of skin.
