Choosing the right Makeup Remover
Some makeup removers are activated when they are applied to damp skin. These include foaming cleansers and lotions that emulsify on contact with water. The ingredients in these cleansers dissolve the pigments in your cosmetics, including foundation, concealer, blush, and lip color. Most traces of makeup and impurities will be removed when you rinse off the cleanser.
If you prefer not to use water as part of your daily cleansing routine, you may enjoy using a wipe-off makeup remover. These cleansers are smoothed onto the skin using small circular motions. Cotton pads or muslin cloths are then used to wipe off the cleanser along with the dissolved cosmetics.
Eye makeup is designed to have staying power. Eye shadows need to resist the motion of your eyelids. Mascara is often waterproof to ensure that it remains in place even if you shed tears. When it comes to removing eye makeup, skin experts recommend that you use a specialist cleanser. Eye makeup removers contain ingredients that dissolve stubborn eye makeup without irritating the sensitive eye area.
When you are traveling or need to remove your makeup in a hurry, you may not have time to use a traditional cleanser. Makeup remover wipes or towelettes are the ideal solution. With a few swipes of a pre-treated wipe or cloth, you can remove all traces of your cosmetics. There is no need to rinse your skin after using a cleansing cloth or towelette. Simply apply your usual moisturizer or skin care treatment to protect and nourish your cleansed skin. Makeup remover wipes and towelettes are produced in handy packs that can be tucked into your luggage, gym bag or purse.
Your skin type may guide your decision in which Makeup Remover Prodcts you choose. If your skin is oily and prone to acne breakouts, you may find that an oil-free makeup remover is better for your skin. An oil-free cleanser will lift off all your makeup without making it feel greasy. If your skin is sensitive, reactive or extremely dry, you may benefit from an alcohol-free makeup remover. Although alcohol can leave your complexion feeling cool and refreshed, it can have a drying effect on the skin.
When you are applying your makeup, it can be easy to make a mistake. Your hand may shake or you may apply more than you intended. By using a corrector pen or eraser sticks, you can easily correct smudges and smears without taking off all the cosmetics you have applied. Or, simply dip a cotton swab into one of the many Makeup Remover Products available at Walgreens to erase any makeup mishaps. BACK TO TOP ›
