If a genie ever granted us, girls, a wish, he’ll be surprised to know how desperately we all want just one thing, i.e., a healthy skin. From our mother’s home remedies to expensive skincare products, from morning to night care routine, we’ve done it all. Be it every skincare video on YouTube or celebrity skincare routines, we have not left any stone unturned. Yet, we forget about the most important step which can make all the difference, makeup removing process.
If you still think that merely washing your face can remove makeup, dirt and impurities from your face, then you need to take a closer look. Even after cleansing your face, you’ll still find the remnants of every product you ever applied (mascara, kajal, foundation, lipstick etc.). That’s probably because the products you use are waterproof and long-wearing which stays up to 12 hours. This is why following a proper makeup removal process is a skincare necessity.
Do your skin a favour, follow these steps
1. Be very gentle with your skin
No matter how quickly you want this process to end, DO NOT be harsh on your skin. Scrubbing it vigorously, wiping it forcefully or ever rubbing it with your bare hands will only end up making your skin dehydrated and irritated. This process requires you to be gentle, and it should feel like a therapy for your skin.
2. Start with cleansing your face
While cleansing might not remove all the products properly, it does break down the makeup to an extent and makes the next step easier. Cover all the facial areas with the cleanser and gently massage your face. Emphasize the hairline, the area below your chin and around the eye.
3. Take steam whenever you can
Now taking steam is something that you cannot possibly do on a regular basis but take out word for it, it really helps. If not every day then you can at least do it once a week. Steaming your face will help loosen up your pores and make the cleansing process easier as this will enable the cleaner to penetrate the skin deeply and remove makeup effortlessly. You can turn this into a spa experience by adding a few drops of essential oils.
4. Finally bring in the Micellar Water and OneSkyn makeup remover pad
Always look for oil-based makeup remover as it works wonders while removing long-wearing makeup. Take the OneSkyn reusable make remover pad and pour a few drops of your liquid remover and gently wipe the remains of your makeup. Pay special attention to your eye region as some products may cause eye infection if not removed properly. Don’t forget to look at the OneSkyn pad with every stoke as there’s nothing more therapeutic than watching all the impurities and makeup coming off your skin. After completing this step, rinse your face with cold water to tighten your pores. Then softly wipe your face with a towel and apply moisturiser.
5. Prepare for the next time
The best part is, after using the OneSkyn reusable makeup remover wipe, you can always wash it with a regular soap and keep it for next time. Since it’s reusable and impeccably gentle for your skin, you can use it up to 200 times.
So now that you know the secret behind the healthy skin, what are you going to do with that wish?
