Taking it down is a whole other pair of problems which we will make easy on you today, with a little help from pleasingcare.com. If you want to get a bit more educated on how to preserve your skin and take more care of it stick with us to the end of this article. It will be both fun and interesting. We know that some of these techniques you weren’t utilizing at all, or at least properly, so read on and learn more.
1. Remove extras
Before even touching your skin with anything, the first thing to do is remove any extras in form of liquid lipstick or false eyelashes. The one thing that most use to take down liquid lipsticks or any other for that matter is a towelette and it is totally fine with us. This is probably the best way to take it all down without much hassle and smudging all around. Choose your brand of towelette according to your preferences, they are all the same. When it comes to fake eyelashes there is a way to do it without tearing your natural ones. What we saw as the best way to do this is using coconut oil. Coconut oil is great for dissolving the glue that holds the lashes and you can use it by gently rubbing it on top of your eyelashes. After some time, it will dissolve the glue totally and you won’t even have to pull on the fake eyelashes to take them down.
2. Dissolve the makeup
Most women out there start cleaning their makeup by jumping straight to their favourite cleanser. This is a big mistake because the cleanser goes so far in dissolving your makeup, and after it is applied you still have makeup leftover in your pores. What you need to do is break that makeup down and you can do it in three options.
First is the oil cleansing method that is rather amazing in breaking down the actual particles of makeup and removes them fully from your skin. Coconut oil, again, has proven to be a perfect choice but you can try with olive oil as well since we have reported that it does a pretty good job. The only thing you need to do is not let these oils sit on your face for too long because they will cause breakouts and clog your pores.
The second is pure castile soap that is a great fighter against makeup particles in your pores. Castile soap is a very pure form of soap that is a detergent. Thanks to this type of property, it easily strips everything off of the skin and pores. Since the castile soap has a slightly bigger pH you will want this off of your skin as soon as it has done its job. It kind of messes up the skins natural pH levels and you don’t want it on for too long.
The third is a cleansing balm. These are available everywhere and they are a decent tool when fighting stubborn makeup leftovers. Look for ones that are cruelty-free and that have plenty of essential oils and skin-boosting benefits, because it then can double down as an antiaging fighter and keep your skin soft and subtle. Waterproof mascara, liquid balm and any other type of makeup don’t stand a chance against this type of balm so you should consider having one at your disposal.
After you have applied one or more methods for breaking down the makeup particles you will want to follow up with what your regular cleanser is. We strongly suggest you use one that has anti-acne ingredients or anti-ageing ones and it will give your skin the nourishment as well as the clean it needs.
Now after step three you could be done and apply a tonner and moisturizer finish and call it a night but for those that use very heavy makeup like pancake makeup, show makeup or drag makeup, you would want to make sure you got everything out and follow up with exfoliation. What you need to know here is that there are numerous products for exfoliation from tools to gels, creams and whatnot, but you have to be careful with all of them because over-exfoliation can lead to damaged skin. Your top layer of skin has a very fine layer of the acid mantle that can easily be removed if you over-exfoliate.
5. Check if your makeup is removed
Now, this is a final step and a final check of sorts. Here you can use a makeup wipe or a toning pad and physically wipe it across your face and if it comes back clean you did an excellent job but if it has any colour on it you will need to repeat these steps and you will most likely repeat them on areas most people usually forget about like hairline, and places around and behind ears or the jawline. This is why you check and make sure you did everything you needed and that your skin is fully makeup-free.
