The best makeup removers for sensitive skin

What happens if I don’t remove my makeup?


It’s late, you’ve had a huge night and all you want to do is go to bed. Trust us- we’ve been there! Regardless of how tired you may be, we’d seriously recommend using your last ounces of energy to remove your makeup. Even if it means you end up sleeping in your clothes from that day and not your pajamas!

Removing your makeup is one of the most important steps when it comes to an effective skincare routine.

When you sleep in makeup your skin isn’t able to breathe properly or shed dead skin cells. This usually results in… you guessed it: pimples and other impurities. Not only that, you also run the risk of seriously harming your eyes if any rogue flecks of eye makeup seep into the area.

Even if you do manage to remove the majority of makeup, doing a haphazard job is a huge roadblock when it comes to achieving clear, healthy, skin. Leaving behind traces of makeup means that your skincare products aren’t able to penetrate the skin effectively, so you’re ultimately wasting your time, product and money!

In order to get the most effective makeup removal and clean possible, we’d recommend double cleansing. Use a makeup remover as your first step to remove the majority of makeup, SPF, dirt pollution and oil. Next, use a cleanser designed for your skin, to clean any excess product/ debris from the skin and to help treat your specific skin concern.
