Let’s face it, after a long day at work the last thing you want to do is wash your face. If you can’t even count how many times you’ve forgotten to remove your makeup just this year, you are certainly not alone. However, the longer you leave your makeup on for, the more likely you are to break out or even develop an eye infection. And, the last thing you want to have to deal with is a nasty eye infection. So, how can you properly remove your eye makeup every night without the hassle? Read on to learn more.
Eye Makeup Remover
Typically oil based, eye makeup remover is specifically designed to get rid of mascara, eyeshadow, and eyeliner— no matter how thick it is. Simply take a cotton pad and soak it in a thin layer of eye makeup remover. Then gently rub the cotton pad across your eye without applying much pressure— pressure isn’t good for your eyes. Repeat with a new cleaning pad until the cotton pad is clean and the makeup is gone.
Face Wash With Remover
It’s easy to find a face wash that has a makeup remover built into it. However, these face washes typically only get off face makeup and not eye makeup, but when used in conjunction with an eye makeup remover it should come off. After you have used the eye makeup remover, you will have an oily mildew on and around your eyes. To get the mildew off, use one of these face washes.
Pat Your Face Dry
It’s probably your natural instinct to dry your face and eyes by taking a washcloth and rubbing it across your skin. However, the pressure from wiping isn’t good for the skin around your eyes. Try to be more gentle when drying your face and pat it dry, using only a small amount of pressure.
Eye Makeup is one of the cheapest, fastest, and easiest ways to completely transform your appearance. By accentuating your natural beauty, the best thing about eye makeup is that it’s not permanent. By using the tips listed above, you can take off your eye makeup every night without any fuss. To learn more, contact Wilkinson Eye Center today!
