No more waking up looking like a panda!

Makeup is a great ally to enhance our beauty, but it is essential to remove it correctly so as not to have future problems, as products clog pores and can cause blemishes, pimples and premature aging of the skin.

So, don't even think about skipping this step or doing it anyway, see? Even after arriving tired from work or a party, sleeping with makeup on is not a good option.

Check out essential tips that Dr. Fernanda Gonçalves prepared about simple ways to remove makeup correctly that will help you keep your skin clean, healthy and hydrated.

Common mistakes when removing makeup

You already understood that it's important to remove makeup correctly, but before we show you how, we want to warn you of some common mistakes that happen in this step and can harm your skin. Take a look:

1. Using products that are inappropriate for your skin 

Each skin type has its particularities and needs appropriate make-up remover products:

Dry skin: prefer makeup remover creams or wipes that, in addition to removing make-up, also hydrate the skin; 

Mixed skin: use foam make-up removers on a daily basis and bet on biphasic ones for heavier makeup; 

Oily skin: choose an oil free formula, micellar water or a cleansing oil (which works for all skins!), and avoid biphasic makeup removers.

2. Use force to remove makeup 

Forcing a cotton pad or tissue to remove makeup can harm your skin. So, use the right products and always apply them with smooth movements.

3. Repeat the same cotton on both eyes 

Use different cotton for each eye, avoiding the risk of passing bacteria from one to the other.

4. Using soap or shampoo to remove makeup 

These products are not designed to remove makeup and can irritate your face and leave residue on your skin.

5. Use a hand towel to dry your face 

The hand towel can have a lot of bacteria, so prefer to dry your face with toilet paper or a towel exclusive to make up.

Now that you know what not to do when removing makeup, see the step-by-step instructions for using the products indicated to ensure a 100% clean face. Your skin thanks you!
