As requested, Removing Make-up tips!!

Make-up has many great properties, but nothing beats a bare face.  The sooner you can remove your make-up from a long day the better. Even though the process of taking off your make-up is much easier in comparison than applying your make-up, it's should still be done with care. The removal of make-up is essential to your over all beauty regime and should never leave your skin dehydrated or irritated.  It would be ideal to use cleansing products and moisturizer of all of the same brand.  But lets be realistic.  I have never found a complete line of anything that I love.   One remover is not fit for all skin types.  In choosing a product to remove your make-up, cater your products to your skin type.  You must also take in consideration the type of make-up and how heavy or light your application is.  Thicker make-ups will require a "stronger" remover then lets say a tinted moisturizer.  Remember not all facial cleansers remove make-up, so make sure the product you use specifically says its removes make-up.  Your remover of choice should soften your skin and loosen the makeup, so you don’t have to rub hard.  You should always follow up the remover with your regular facial cleanser, toner, and night moisturizer. When cleansing your skin avoid extremely hot water, as it tends to dry the skin.  If you live in an area that has hard water.  Invest in a good filter to attach to the faucet to filter out impurities. 

Lets discuss some make-up remover options: 

* Cold Creams are great to break down thick cream based or cake make-up.  Please keep in mind most cold creams have a very oily/greasy base and are not meant to be use alone.  Wipe the excess with flat cotton pads and proceed with cleanser. 

* Milk Cleansers/Cream Cleansers tend not to foam and are favorable amongst people with dry or sensitive skin. Always follow the manufacturers instructions.
* Foaming Cleansers give an extra clean feel to the skin and are great for people with normal to oily skin. 

* Facial Cleansing wipes are great to remover the majority of your make-up very quickly.  Some come already pre moisten and others require dampening with water.  Keep in mind these may not always be the best to remove eye make-up.  From personal experience I have found them to slightly burn and irritate my eyes.  You must take special care of the thin skin around the eye area.  It is recommended to use a product specifically for eye make-up removal.  For hard to remover water proof eyeliner, mascara and false eyelashes, saturate your flat cotton round with the eye make-up remover and hold it on the eye for a few seconds.  This will allow the liner and mascara to break down and wipe away easy.    In substitute of eye make-up remover, vaseline or mineral oil will do the trick too. Make sure to follow up with a hydrating eye cream. Baby wipes should not be use or considered for removing make-up.

With all the talk about removing your make-up, you may say what about the many mineral make-up companies that claim it is safe to fall asleep in their products…….. Make-up is make-up and nothing beats a bare face.  Now I know many of us, myself included have fallen asleep in make-up from time to time.  This mistake will not harm you or age you considerably, however it is definitely bad practice.  Remember bad habits are easy to gain and much harder to break.

In my skincare routine, it's never enough for me to use a foam cleanser alone. I use cleansing wipes to remove my heavy makeup and my mascara. In order remove the excess makeup, I proceed to using my aloe vera foam cleaner. In that way, I can assure that my face is entirely clean. However, cleansing too much can dry up our face so it is importance to use toner and serum to bring back the natural oil on our face.
