Even if you don't wear a ton of makeup on a daily basis, there are certain occasions that call for it, like getting dolled up for a wedding, big night out on the town or photo shoot. Heavy makeup naturally requires a more targeted removal approach than your day-to-day face-washing routine. The following beauty products work beautifully together to remove layers of makeup. Here's what you need to ensure a fully cleansed, vibrant face, and the simple routine to go with it:
Before Going To Bed, Do This
- Using circular motions, massage an almond-sized amount of Coconut Oil Balm into your face, which helps break down your foundation, concealer and more.
- Dampen a cleansing cloth, like this microfiber cloth that won't get ruined by your makeup's pigment, with warm to hot water and gently wipe off balm and makeup, rinsing the cloth as necessary as you go. (In my experience, this works better for face makeup removal than just running water over your face in the shower.)
- Use "The Best Natural Eye Makeup Remover" on the planet to get rid of any leftover eye makeup. To note, you can apply the coconut oil above to your eyes as well, but I still like to follow it up with the Earth Science product to remove every morsel of makeup and oil.
Go to bed and dream about how your face is so fresh and so clean clean...
In the Morning, Do This
Mix a dime-sized amount of Cosmedix Benefit Clean Gentle Cleanser with Cosmedix Purity Detox Scrub and scrub with circular motions everywhere except your eyes. Make sure to get into the corners of that nose and chin where blackheads love to form! Rise your face with warm water.
To note, if you are wearing a lot of makeup every day, only use the scrub three times per week. Too much scrubbing isn't good for your skin, or necessary.
With these handful of great beauty products to remove heavy makeup in your skin care arsenal, you'll be able to keep those pores free of grit and grime!
