DAILY ROUTINE: The best way to remove makeup

Is having perfect skin important to you? If so, it is important to have a proper makeup removal routine, as only perfectly clean skin free of makeup can absorb face cream nutrients and regenerate properly. We’re here to show you how to remove makeup properly. Make it part of your daily routine and your skin will be grateful!

Many women make the mistake of underestimating the benefits of a good quality makeup remover. Failing to thoroughly cleanse your skin not only results in unsightly pimples, wrinkles will also appear earlier and your skin will feel tired and flat. Therefore, learn to remove your makeup properly – it’s actually quite simple!

Skin Care

Proper makeup removal

Step 1 – Choose the best makeup remover for your skin type

Before approaching the mirror with your makeup remover pad in hand, be sure to choose the right products for perfect makeup removal. Choose the proper makeup remover for your skin type. You will need at least three products: eye makeup remover, makeup cleanser, oil-based cleanser or gel to remove the main impurities, and finally a cleansing lotion or micellar water for deep cleansing.

Step 2 – Moisten your face

Step 3 – Start by removing makeup from your eyes

Using a special eye makeup remover, start by removing makeup from around your eyes. If your eyes are extra sensitive, Vichy Pureté Thermale with soothing blueberry extract is an ideal choice as the best eye makeup remover for sensitive skin. Soak a cotton wool pad in makeup remover, apply to your eyelid and let it dissolve the makeup for a moment. Gently wipe off your mascara and other makeup, working from the roots of your eyelashes to the tips and away from your face.

Waterproof mascara requires a waterproof makeup remover. Our favorites are Collistar Make-up Removers and Cleansers, as they remove your makeup perfectly while also deeply hydrating the delicate skin around the eyes to prevent irritation. Don’t press too hard on the pad, as this could cause unnecessary wrinkles. And be sure to follow this advice when removing makeup from the rest of your face as well.

Step 4 – Remove the main impurities from your skin

Once you’re finished cleaning your eyes, it’s time to move on to your face. For dry skin, use a makeup remover lotion, an oil based cleanser or makeup remover balm, which becomes an oily cream when applied to your face.

For dry yet sensitive skin, we recommend Mixa makeup remover cleanser. Coconut and almond oil also perfectly dissolve all impurities.

Makeup removal gel is best for oily skin. For problematic skin, try Eucerin DermoPure with antibacterial effects. Apply makeup remover to a clean cotton pad and work from the middle of your face outwards. You can also apply it with your fingertips, allowing it to work for a moment before removing it with a cotton wool pad. And be sure to clean any makeup on your neck.

Step 5 – Complete the cleansing routine 

A cleansing lotion or micellar water is ideal for perfectly cleansing your skin at the end of your routine. Keep changing cotton wool pads until they come away perfectly clean. 

Step 6 – Use toner

As the final step, apply a toner to your face to tone your skin, tighten your pores and also prepare your skin to absorb nutrients. To prevent irritation, be sure to avoid the eye area. Your skin is now perfectly makeup free and clean, and you can begin with nourishment and hydration!
