At the end of the day, you should remove all traces of makeup to keep your skin healthy and reduce flare-ups. But what is also important is that you follow the right method to remove makeup. The skin on your face is extra sensitive, so you need to make sure that you clean gently and efficiently to restore radiance and avoid any damage in the long run. Dr Rasna Kapoor, Sr. Consulting Dermatologist at Kaya Skin Clinics, gives you a break down on the right way to remove makeup.

Removing eye makeup: The skin around your eyes is particularly sensitive, so it is imperative that you be gentle and don't rub your skin too hard. If your mascara doesn't come off, just soak a cotton ball in makeup remover and place it over your eyes so that the composition breaks down slowly. Avoid pulling the lashes as it can damage the tissues. Then apply an eye cream to soothe and hydrate your eyes. Here are 7 reasons to remove makeup before you sleep.

Removing waterproof makeup: Oil based remover can be ideal for removing waterproof makeup since waterproof makeups have a stronger consistency. And since, oil-based remover can leave residues, do a full cleanse after removing the makeup.

Removing lip colour: These days, most of us use lipsticks that last for nine to twelve hours. So they can be difficult to remove. Use wet tissues to remove the lip colour. After removing the makeup, massage them and apply a coat of glycerine to make your lips soft.

Choosing makeup remover: Also ensure to read the ingredients on your skincare products as compounds like alcohol, parabens and sulphate can strip the natural oil from your face, and you should avoid them at all costs. Also, everything from your cleansers to your eye cream should be fragrance-free. You must use these natural makeup removers for soft and glowing skin.

Also, do not forget to wash your face with a mild face wash. If your skin is oily, use a cleanser or face wash with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. For dry skin, use a gentle cleanser or a foaming face wash that will not dry out the skin too much. Watch the video for more tips on the right way to remove makeup.
