Makeup Cleanup: Taking it All Off
It's been a long evening of festive fun, and all you want to do when you get home is fall into bed, right? But when you have a full face of makeup, it's a good idea to take a few moments to clean your skin before hitting the sack. Your complexion will thank you, and so will the pillowcase! Even the purest makeup formulas can block pores and cause breakouts, rashes and all kinds of skin ailments. And if you don't remove eye makeup, then eye infections and irritation can result. But you don't have to create a complicated regimen with expensive removal products. The most basic ingredients, such as petroleum jelly or baby shampoo, make great eye makeup removers. Light, oil-based eye makeup removers are particularly helpful if you wear waterproof eye makeup, which can be stubborn to remove. Another use for those eye makeup removers is taking off that sticks-with-you-through-everything lipstick.
