7 Gentle and Effective Makeup RemoversKate Bryan
Given all the time women put into searching for the right skincare routine and makeup products, it seems that neglecting one’s makeup remover wouldn’t quite make sense.
The act of removing your makeup in itself is so important for the health of your skin, and the products you use to remove it are nearly as important.
As far as makeup removers go, there are a few different forms. Pre-moistened cloths are the easiest and most “travel friendly,” and liquid can be used with a cotton pad. Some makeup removers are formulated as cleansing products that you apply to a wet face and then rinse off.
Personally, I use a combination of both. I use a pre-moistened cloth in order to loosen everything up and get the majority of my eye makeup off, and I finish with a swipe of liquid remover on a cotton pad to make sure there is nothing left behind.
Whether your skin is sensitive or not, it’s never a bad idea to err on the gentle side of things when you are shopping for a new skin product. Some makeup removers can leave your skin dry and tight, which can lead to breakouts or flakiness.
