3 Simple Tips to Remove Makeup at the End of the Day

Hello, lovely readers!

If you want to wake up with fresh, glowing skin each day, removing your makeup is essential. You’re doing your skin a favour by removing makeup each day. Here are a few tips I like to use when I do not have my favourite makeup remover on hand.

1. Take advantage of steam

Fill your sink with hot water and let your face hover above it for 1-2 minutes. The steam will open your pores and make it easier for cleanser to absorb into the skin.2. Try an oil-based makeup remover to remove lipstick Long-wearing liquid lipsticks can be stubborn to remove. Soak a cotton pad in an oil-based makeup remover to dissolve your lipstick. 3. Make your own formulaI recently made my own balm to remove makeup. It combines oil and beeswax to gently remove my makeup. To create this formula, I combine 1/4 cup of olive oil and a tablespoon of beeswax. I melt the beeswax into the oil, allow it to harden then pour it into a container.

  2. Ooooo I like the steam idea! I’m going to try that one. The oil thing is magic lol. I use coconut oil to remove my makeup before washing my face. I’ve gotten better with removing makeup in the evening after work. Falling asleep and forgetting to take off your makeup is the worst!!!

  3. Steam is more effective after you have cleansed as it opens up the pores. Unless you are cleaning whilst steaming your face your opening up your pores and trapping dirt before you have the chance to clean it out. I made this mistake for ages until my therapist told me it’s better to open your pores after cleansing. Toner will remove all the left over dirt in the pores which is why it’s better to do it second
