In the morning, some ladies gladly spend extra time to apply makeup on top of getting ready for the day. But many fail to implement the same time and effort when it comes to removing makeup after a long day. Let’s be honest, we’ve all had a time where we came home, laid on the couch to rest and ended up falling asleep. But the truth is sleeping overnight or even taking a quick nap with makeup on can lead to acne due to clogged pores, dry skin as makeup acts as a barrier that doesn’t allow the skin to absorb beneficial skin care ingredients, eye irritation, and much more. Think of it this way, the amount of time that it could take to soothe breakouts that occur double the time it takes to properly cleansing your skin. Many people make the mistake of just using wipes but the makeup doesn’t come completely off, plus the use irritating fragrances and rubbing your skin excessively can lead to further skin complications.


But no need to worry, the team at Summit Salon has put together an easy guide that will help you balance healthy skin while wearing makeup.


Step 1: Prep

Mascara, lip stains, and eyeliner are usually the toughest to take off when it comes to your makeup removal. To ensure proper removal, place a damp cotton pad on the targeted area for a few seconds, then begin to gently wipe makeup away. It is important that you do not reuse the same side of the cotton pad.


Step 2: Cleanse  

Typically liquid and powder makeup products are easier to remove so simply wet your face and begin massaging your preferred gentle cleanser on your skin then follow up with a final rinse. Once all excess product is rinsed off, pat your face dry with a towel to retain as much moisture as possible.


Step 3: Moisturize

Now that you have stripped down all the build up, it’s time to bring your skin back to life! Based on your skin type whether oily, dry, or combination, use your preferred daily moisturizer to ensure your skin is receiving is daily nutrients. And you’re all done!
