Those harsh chemicals can’t be good for your skin.
It’s satisfying using minimal force as you sweep a sheet of makeup remover across your waterproof foundation and abundantly coated lashes to see various colours concentrate on the centre of the makeup remover sheet. Amazing.
Unfortunately, the easier your makeup remover (liquid or sheets) removes your makeup, the higher the chances that it is simply an amalgamation of strong chemicals and hear this – alcohol. These drying chemicals may be extremely effective in removing makeup within seconds, but, they’re also great at wiping out the essential oils that your skin naturally produces.
Imagine vigorously rubbing your delicate skin with makeup removing chemicals every day. The tugging action physically damages your epidermis while the chemicals dehydrate your skin. This could eventually lead to the formation of fine lines and the loss of collagen over the years!
Don’t fret, we’re about to suggest the most efficient makeup remover that will hydrate your skin while doing an ace job at dissolving even the most stubborn makeup. Sworn by the evergreen Naomi Campbell as the elixir for her youthful skin, almond oil is the magical intervention you’ve been waiting for all your life.
This versatile oil is a magnificent moisturiser and it’s tacky texture allows your makeup to slide right off. Simply warm some almond oil in your hands and smother it all over your face as you work the oil into your skin in circular motions. You’ll be amazed at how easily your makeup comes off! For heavy eye makeup, soak some almond oil in a cotton ball and press it on your eye before wiping it off. The oil will soften crunchy mascara residue and remove it in an instant.
Rich in Vitamin E, almond oil penetrates our skin to uncover all the makeup, dirt and residue accumulated in our pores. It also moisturises skin for a smooth and radiant glow. Alternatively, opting for olive or coconut oil works just as well. Most of these face oils are low in cost and can be found in your local supermarket!
Plus, opting for oil as a makeup remover easily integrates the step of double cleaning in your skincare routine. Introduced by Korean skin care, double cleansing involves massaging your skin with a cleansing oil before washing it off with your facial wash. This method is used by celebrities to improve the appearance of acne scars and even out their skin tone.
Using an oil as a makeup remover comes with so many benefits- and they cost much lesser than most makeup removers out there. So try to remove your makeup with oil today, your skin will thank you.
