If you are like me you are a regular in the makeup aisle. Perusing the shelves, sampling the latest in lipstick formulas, eyeliners, and foundations searching for a flawless finish. A number of us fell in love with makeup whilst making a mess at our mother’s vanities and ladies, some of us never grew out of it.
Don’t worry, you are not alone!
However, being the makeup junkies we are the practice of taking off it is just as important if not more than the process of placing it on. An impeccable beat starts with an ideal foundation which can only be the result of skin that’s been properly prepped by eliminating dirt, oils, and residue daily.
That is why a terrific makeup remover is KEY!
As someone who enjoys a complete face of glam, I learned the hard way that all makeup removers are not created equal. I used makeup remover wipes every evening before cleanup and would dismiss the smear of base that would be on my towel after drying off, not believing that if there was makeup there then there was makeup left over on my face as well, seeping into my pores and leaving room for bacteria to grow.
Luckily there are tons of methods for makeup removal aside from remover wipes such as cleansing balms, oils, gels, dissolving sprays even makeup removal sticks.
So after a stint of breakouts, I decided to update my approach and went with a recommendation from a trusty Palm Bay Pest Control employee.
The oil melts any makeup on the skin, then the micellar water cleanses and removes excess residue before you even rinse with your cleanser, which means no more leftover makeup in your towels.
Do not get me wrong, I still keep makeup remover wipes by my bedside or in my purse for those nights I’m too tired to do my whole routine. My favorites are the Sephora Collection Green Tea Cleansing & Exfoliating Wipes for skin, which are soothing, meant to be mattifying and good for acne-prone skin. I also love the Too Faced Mascara Melt Away Cleansing Oil for eye makeup, which works for regular or waterproof mascara!
In the long run, it doesn’t matter which method you choose, find the best products that fit in with your lifestyle, just make sure that you have one that eliminates all lingering residue, trust me, it’s game changing!
