You're removing makeup wrong! Find out what not to do

These make-up removal mistakes can be devastating for your skin. Find out what exactly you shouldn't do.

Removing makeup seems like one of the easiest parts of your facial routine because you just have to remove your makeup. But, as time has passed and we have perfected the techniques, we have found that there are many details to take into account, from doing a double cleaning to the time to do it and to the products that we must use. Let's see what it is about!

Your daily cleanser should be sufficient to take off foundation and blush.

1. Don't lack in makeup remover product
Many times we sin of using too much product, as it happens in gels, shampoos, and masks, but other times we fall very short, as it happens with the moisturizer and with the liquid cleanser. As for the make-up remover, it is better to apply it in abundance because otherwise the skin will only absorb it and it will not be cleaned. Apply enough quantity so that the skin becomes saturated and does not want to absorb it. In this way, it will carry away all the makeup and dirt.

When it comes to removing eye makeup in particular, the slower you go, the better.

2. Tone the skin before removing makeup
Perhaps this is one of the reasons why, hours after cleansing the skin, hydrating it, and caring for it, numerous pimples appear. Tone the skin before hydrating. The toner will remove cleanser residues that always remain on the skin and even dirt may come out that it has not been able to remove.

3. Don't rub your eyes
When we remove make-up from our eyes, we tend to rub the cotton over them in a somewhat aggressive way. This not only does not cause the product to be removed correctly but also damages the eyelashes causing them to fall and wrinkles are promoted in the contour, in addition to dirtying and darkening it. Remove makeup by sliding gently.

4. Micellar water is not for removing the lipstick
For the eyes or lips, you have to use a specific product for them. In the case of the lips, you can also use an eye makeup remover as it is made for more sensitive areas. Soak a cotton pad in the product and begin by gently sliding your lower lip, from the corner to the center.

5. Don't forget to remove makeup from your neck and chin
Makeup should not end on the chin and, therefore, cleaning either, but we tend to forget about this area. Always use a cotton pad with a make-up remover that will also carry away the dirt from pollution and dust and tone it.
