By now, we all know the nasty consequences of not removing our makeup before going to bed. That's why we've become diligent with our cleansing routine. With double cleansing as the current norm, it's hard to imagine that not so long ago, we were removing makeup with just a foaming cleanser. The only other option were eye and lip makeup removers that were too watery to budge our waterproof eyeliner.
Thankfully, we now have gentle and very effective formulas that will thoroughly cleanse our skin and remove our eye makeup (without us sacrificing a few eyelashes). Whether you have oily, sensitive, dry, combination or ageing skin — there's now a perfect cleanser just for you.
Oily Skin: Shu Uemura POREfinist Anti-Shine Fresh Cleansing Oil
Sensitive Skin: NUXE Micellar Cleansing Water
Dry Skin: Pond's Cold Cream Cleanser
Combination Skin: Dior Hydra Life Oil To Milk Cleanser
Ageing Skin: Banila Co Clean It Zero Resveratrol
Although those with ageing skin can also use other cleansers intended for other skin types, it's best to take advantage of makeup removers with added ingredients that will benefit mature skin. Look for makeup removers that do not need unnecessary tugging for it work. Banila Co's Clean It Zero Balm with resveratrol is a good option to consider. The added resveratrol is a natural antioxidant that can prevent damage from free radicals and ensure that our collagen production remains stable. Just take a pea-sized amount of this balm and massage onto skin.
