How to remove makeup and properly cleanse your skin?

Neglecting the moment of cleansing is one of the most common and at the same time most serious mistakes in skincare! In fact, if we do not remove the make-up well our pores become clogged, impurities and pimples risk worsening and the complexion of the skin appears increasingly dull and uneven. And these are just some of the consequences…

As Halloween is approaching and many of you will be indulging in stage tricks for the darkest night of the year, the advice in the Journal Lagalene on how to remove make-up well and have a well-cleansed skin could be for you!

What happens if I don't take off my make-up?

Let's start by describing what happens to our face if we don't remove the makeup properly. The consequences are different:

  • the substances present in the products make-up can irritate and damage the skin causing the appearance of acne, pimples, dilated pores and impurities,
  • the skin appears slightly toned and graying ,
  • during the night, when the skin regenerates, our face absorbs all residual impurities ,
  • the polluting powders accumulated during the day cause redness and clog the pores .

What is the best way to remove make-up and cleanse the skin?

Surely one of the best ways is to use a natural, non-aggressive make-up remover , such as a cleansing milk or micellar water to remove the makeup layer on our face.

Then we move on to cleansing, preferably a gentle soap , natural, which rebalances the pH and removes the last residues of make-up left on the face. This step is very useful to ensure that we thoroughly cleanse our face and not run into all the risks listed above.
