How to choose the right make-up remover?

Most of the time, the cleaning is done quickly. With fatigue, children... We think that a cotton ball of micellar water applied in a hurry does the job, and too bad if our skin is tight or red afterwards. Wrong! We help you choose the right makeup remover for your skin type.

Find the right makeup remover for your skin 

Most of the time, it is a neglected step, done quickly... We are talking about the cleaning of your skinat least especially the make-up removal. Fatigue at the end of the day, the children to manage or the desire to simply decompress... We often tend to think that a cotton ball ofmicellar water applied in a hurry is enough to remove our skin makeupand so much the worse if it pulls or starts to redden. Wrong! Not only is the skin not perfectly clean, but an unsuitable cleanser will accentuate small skin problems. To finally obtain a healthy and perfectly clean skin, we opt for the double cleansing a two-step cleansing that combines a make-up remover with oil or a cleansing balm with a skin cleansing with a milk or a soft foaming gel. The advantage? The first oily step eliminates all impurities of an oily nature and the second step refines the work and begins to treat a skin problem (such as sensitivities, dehydration, or imperfections). Find out how to find the right makeup remover for your skin.

 

These cleaning and makeup removal habits must be stopped 

Micellar water: at the beginning, this product was created for the backstage of the fashion shows, to remove the make-up of the tops between 2 shows. These lotions are very rich in detergents that denature the hydrolipidic film. And who says altered lipidic barrier says hello to dehydration and sensitivities!

Make-up remover wipes Make-up remover wipes: this is the same problem as micellar water: the wipes are a nomadic product intended for exceptional use. The impurities are moved and not removed. There also, the skin can react by multiplying irritations and the small buttons.

Just water: To remove impurities, they need to be encapsulated in a "vehicle". Applying only water to your face is useless. Imagine the result if you did your dishes with just a little water...

Shower gel intended for the body, this product is often filled with detergent foaming agents and dyes. It thus causes a dissolution of the hydrolipidic film with with the key a massive dehydration and sensitivities.

 

Make-up remover oil or make-up remover balm?

Granted, the use of an oily body may seem totally counterintuitive, especially if you have combination or oily skin. And yet! Make-up remover oil (made up mainly of one or more vegetable oils), will act like a magnet by attracting the greasy substances and as it respects the hydrolipidic film since it does not eliminate it, the skin is preserved from any irritation or dehydration.

On the other hand, if you have dry skin, we advise you to turn to a make-up remover balm or a natural make-up remover oil based on rich vegetable oils such as avocado or wild rose oil for example. Dry skin lacking lipids is thus perfectly protected from dryness and benefits from the nourishing and softening benefits of plant oils.

 

Choosing a Cleansing Oil for the face

Contrary to popular belief, all skin types (yes, even combination and oily skin) can use a care oil, to remove make-up, clean or moisturize. It is even the best option for removing makeup and effectively eliminate all the impurities accumulated during the day. And that's thanks to a simple rule: fat attracts fat. Make-up, pollution and excess sebum are precisely the kind of fatty substances that the oil of care will emulsify and eliminatewithout aggressing. So we stop wasting cotton pads and switch to cleansing oilI promise it doesn't even take more time...

 

For dry and dehydrated skin:

To remove make-up from dry or dehydrated skin, treat yourself to rich, creamy oils or even balms. To be massaged into dry skin and then rinsed with water, in addition to removing makeup, the oil will soften the skin and even nourish it thanks to the fatty acids it contains. Here is something to reconcile you with the ritual of make-up removaland no more tight skin! Then, we'll move on to the second cleanser, preferably a milk to perfect the cleansing.

 

Which makeup remover for Normal to Combination skin

To limit dehydration and regulate the small excesses of sebum, makeup remover oil has all the right stuff. Lucky for normal skin, there is a choice of fluid oils or balms. For combination skinFor combination skin, we prefer rather light oils that will comfort cheeks that are tight and the T-zone that sometimes has a temper tantrum...

 

How to remove make-up from oily skin?

Instinctively, we don't necessarily think of using an oil when we have oily skin: we are rather tempted by the single passage of a good cleansing gel with an extra-fresh effect. Mistake! The sebum, playing the role of protector of the skin, is going to feel attacked and start again its production of more beautiful. To break this vicious circle, opt for an oil make-up remover containing vegetable oils with cleansing powers. Then, opt for a non-detergent cleansing gel or clay gel, for impeccable skin.

 

Which make-up remover for mature skin?

Did you know that even after cleansing, you can fight against skin aging? Mature skin tends to lose lipids and consequently, to suffer from skin dryness more easily. We will therefore choose rich oils, or even make-up remover balms to restore the lipid structure, rehydrate and even revitalize. Look for vitamins that will provide precious antioxidants for a reinforced anti-aging action!


As you can see, make-up removal with a cleansing oil is THE most respectful method, whatever your skin type, and doesn't even require cotton pads. Always use it on dry skin (even on the eyes, since oil removes even waterproof mascara very well) and then rinse off with lukewarm water, before using a gel or cleansing milk... and you're done!
