Why You Need Makeup Remover

Skin Care 101: Makeup Remover

If you thought a face cleanser was exactly the same thing as makeup remover, then think again. Makeup remover is designed to specifically remove your color cosmetics, including stubborn waterproof formulas and eye makeup. This step should be done before you actually cleanse your skin at night. To learn more about the importance of this essential step, just keep reading.

Why You Need It: When you're cleansing your skin, do you want to be rubbing your dirty, oxidized makeup all over your face in the process? In order to care for a healthy complexion, it's vital to remove pore-clogging and eye-irritating makeup before you even cleanse your skin. Making sure every trace of makeup is gone means clearer skin without breakouts, and your eyes will be less puffy and discolored.

For Oily Skin: While oils are an excellent ingredient for removing makeup, those with oil-prone skin can try a cleansing water, or micellar water, to remove standard makeup without added greasiness.

For Combination Skin: Oil-based makeup removers or cleansing oil would be a great option for combination skin types. Plus, the oils in cleansing oil could actually help balance your T-zone.

For Dry Skin: Your best bet is a cleansing oil or even balm, which will remove makeup and cleanse the skin without stripping your complexion of its necessary oils. Plus, these products are such great cleansers, they're a makeup remover and cleanser in one.

I use Seophora - it's incredible the difference it makes removing my makeup first - clransing and toning afterwards is much easier.
