Importance of Makeup Removal

makeup removal Makeup Removal.  Let’s take a moment to discuss the importance of eye makeup removal and makeup removal in general. First, it’s crucial to remove makeup at the end of each day.  During the day, your skin gets stressed out with pore clogging makeup and environmental particles. Nighttime is when your it has a chance to breath and regenerate. Also, this is the time your skin needs to work through its natural exfoliation process. If you are wearing a layer of makeup, the results are blocked pores and acne. Generally, I reach for a gel based cleanser like MAC Green Gel Cleanser. Although recently I’ve been using Fresh’s Soy Face Cleanser and I find, as with most of their products, that it’s quite fabulous.  I also always keep cleansing wipes on hand. They are imperative for makeup removal when you are feeling tired or don’t have the time. makeup removal What always worried me most was how to remove my eye makeup. With waterproof mascara, liquid liner and primer, cleansing around my eyes is not an easy feat. As we all know, the skin around our eyes is quite thin and delicate and roughly pulling on it every night is not a good habit. I, for one, have found Lancome’s Bi-Facil to be wonderful for waterproof mascara. It has an oil base which breaks up the waterproof properties. Having tried a multitude mascara’s over time, I’ve happily settled with Diorshow and probably won’t ever go back, so the rest of my skincare regime needs to adjust.

Many years ago when I was working at a beauty counter, I attended courses held  by various makeup companies.  My most memorable one was about eye makeup removal. There is a very easy trick which ensures that you gently cleanse without  tugging on your eyes. Take a cotton ball soaked with eye makeup remover and gently press it against your lid for about five to ten seconds, then gently swipe down, up, inward toward your duct and then outward. If this doesn’t remove your makeup  right away then simply repeat the process.

We spend so much time and money on creams and face masks and serums, but how can we expect any of it to work if we aren’t applying products to freshly cleansed skin? So please take 5 minutes at the end of your busy day to cleanse and purify your skin. Remember that you are giving yourself a wonderful gift!

How To Always Love Your Hair


  1. So true!! I can’t understand people who wouldn’t want to take the makeup off at the end of the day…it’s a breakout waiting to happen! It’s so important to take care of your skin and removing all dirt and makeup is one very essential step. I always recommend a makeup removal wipe for the first layer and then to use face wash to really get everything off.

  2. You’re so right! Removing makeup is very important! I use Simple wipes for nights when I’m too exhausted, because leaving it on is not an option. Did you ever see this? Brave woman to test this out.

    1. I love the wipes too, frankly they are so convenient!

  3. I’m always very careful when I remove my makeup. I try to remove everything. 🙂

  4. I always look forward to taking off my makeup at night! Lately, I’ve been using and absolutely loving cleansing balms! Currently, I’m using one from REN and it just makes the whole makeup-removing process so much more relaxing and therapeutic.
    I’m not sure if you’ve done a post on this yet, but I would love to hear about any exfoliators (physical or chemical) that you like to use on your skin. I’ve been trying out a few ones lately but haven’t found one that I really love yet. Any recommendations?

    1. Sounds wonderful! Just wrote a post on exfoliating. Thank you so much for suggestion!

  5. So perfect this post!

    Happy Monday


  6. great review! <3 Thanks btw for dropping by my blog and commenting. You're way too sweet. Would you like to follow each other on gfc and bloglovin? 🙂

    1. My pleasure. I am already following you.

  7. Can´t say I am an expert in this field, so thanks for the lovely tips! 🙂 Happy Monday!

  8. Hi dear! You chose a very good means for skin care! Stage makeup removal, skin cleansing stage – one of the main in our daily care! I use other means of removing makeup, but your choice I also love!

  9. Very informative! I’m really trying to take more care with my night routine these days, especially after a long party night. Aaaah the lost days of tough teenage skin…

  10. I’ve to try them! Kisses, lucy

  11. Hope Howland (@HHDesigns)

    I must confess… I am guilty of leaving on my makeup and crashing into bed.. but I’m definitely trying to change that… I use dry oil.. I love it.. removes everything and it moisturizes so nicely.. I’ve been a little curious about Fresh products and how they are for your skin.. thanks for sharing!!

  12. I totally agree with using at least a basic makeup remover cloth. I have to use a facial cleanser to really get the excess stuff off, lets face it makeup cloths only do so much. Great tips!

    1. Yes! A cloth is a great tool. Thank you!

  13. Totally true! My skin has hated me since I moved to Germany! I’d never had any real issues with removing makeup and breakouts and such, but something in the air here just loves to clog my pores! I’ve gone through so many different cleansers I can’t even count! I’ll have to give these tips a shot!
    : signe : : the daily savant :


    1. I know what you mean, I went through a crazy skin phase when I moved to Poland!

  14. lovely beauty tips my dear!
    kisses from Miami,

  15. I fully agree with you. I have to try the Fresh’s Soy Face Cleanser! Big kiss Nat

  16. gorgeous selection,love all product,my favorite is seaberry
    —-> tr3ndygirl fashion blog <—-

    1. Thank you so much!

  17. totally agree with you, removing all our makeup correctly is very important. Also, I love your tips they are very useful, especially the one of the cotton ball for the mascara.
    Great post!!

    1. Thanks so much! They are rules are definitely try to follow.

  18. Such a great post, it’s very important to remove all make up!

    1. Agreed! My skin is so much healthier when I do!
