Bedtime Makeup Removal Routine

Today, we’re talking about taking it all off at night. We mean makeup, of course! A clean, fresh face is important to allow skin to repair and rejuvenate while you sleep, to protect your skin from environmental damage and to prevent clogged pores. Make sure your face gets its beauty rest with my expert tips on makeup removal:

Before Cleanse

Many people start their bedtime skincare routine with a cleanser. What they don’t know is that they may be redistributing makeup and dirt into open pores. Start with a makeup wipe, a cleansing oil or, even, wiping the face with water, which will clean and emulsify impurities and dissolve makeup before you use cleanser.

Steam Powered

A simple tip is to drench a washcloth in hot water, allow it to cool briefly and apply it to your face. The steam’s like a quick mini-facial that opens your pores and starts the process of removing the grime and dirt of the day before you cleanse.

The Eyes Have It

We all know to be delicate with the skin around the eye, but it’s equally important to get all remnants of mascara and eye makeup off the eye at night. The key is to take your time, especially with today’s waterproof formulations. Soak a cotton ball in your makeup remove it and hold it to your eye without rubbing. This will give makeup an opportunity to breakdown before you gently rub (the key word here is gently) the rest of your eye makeup off.

Toner Optional

Not only is using toner adding an extra step to your nighttime beauty regime (and who needs that when you’re exhausted and beyond ready to hit the sheets), but it has a bad reputation for drying out the skin. Toner is great for acne-prone or extremely oily skin, but, if you have normal or dry skin, skip it entirely.
