Effectively Removing Your Waterproof Makeup

There is always a way your mother taught you to remove makeup and there is an effective method but neither one necessarily works with waterproof makeup.  Waterproof makeup has been formulated to resist moisture and stay in place when exposed to water.  In addition, there is water resistant makeup that stays on better but does not always stay in place when exposed to water.  It tends to be more likely to stay on.

There is a method that is most recommended when you want to remove waterproof makeup.  The first step is to look for an oil based or a dual phase make up remover designed to work with waterproof products.  Oil helps break down waterproof products effectively.  

The next thing is to begin with the eyes.  Apply a small amount of your makeup remover to a cotton pad or a soft cloth.  Carefully, press the pad against your eyes one at a time.  Hold it there a few seconds to let the makeup remover saturate the makeup and then gently wipe it off by moving the pad or cloth across the eye from the inner to the outer corner. Do not rub because the skin around the eyes are very sensitive.

Once, the eyes are done, start on the lips.  You want to use the same makeup remover to remove your waterproof lipstick. Apply a small amount of the makeup remover to a cotton pad or soft cloth and wipe the lipstick off.  If there are a couple of stubborn spots, use a cotton swab that has been dipped in the makeup remover.

After you've removed your eye makeup and lipstick, it is time to cleanse your face with a gentle cleaner that is designed for your face.  You want to get rid of any remaining makeup or impurities and finish off by gently wiping your face clean with a soft washcloth that has been dipped in warm-water. If you feel as if your skin is still not clean enough, use a double cleaning system with an application of oil to dissolve any remaining makeup and follow with a water based cleaner to remove the oil.

Finally, Rinse your face thoroughly by splashing warm water all over your face.  You want to make sure you've removed all makeup.  The last step is to apply a nice lightweight moisturizer to hydrate your face.  

There are se real things to keep in mind when removing waterproof makeup.  Always, always, always, be gentle with your skin so you do not irritate your skin.  In addition, always avoid using harsh cleaners or soaps that could dry out your skin or irritate it. If you have sensitive skin, make sure the makeup remover is designed specifically for sensitive skin. Lastly, never go to bed without cleaning makeup off your skin so that you keep your skin healthy and do not clog your pores.  

Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear.  Have a great day.
