5 Ways to Prep Your Skin After Makeup

Dear reader,

To keep in the theme of last Monday’s post, today I will be sharing with you 6 different ways you can prep your skin after makeup, or just prep your skin before going to bed.

  • Makeup Wipes.

This is probably the worst way to remove makeup (click here to read my makeup wipes review). I actually do not know why it is so bad using these wipes, because honestly, these are my first choice when I’m feeling lazy and tired after a long day. My current favourite is the Simple makeup remover wipe (shop here) because I find it more gentle than the others I’ve been using recently.

  • Rose Water.

I’ve already expressed my love for using rose water on a cotton pad to wipe off any excess dirt, or makeup, off my face before applying makeup (click here to read) but, I as well love using it right after I remove my makeup . I would not recommend using this as your primary way if removing makeup, as it doesn’t do a good job in taking off foundation, liquid products, and other powdery products. The way I use it is by firstly removed my makeup with a wipe or washing it off, after that I would pat my face dry then use the rose water (on a cotton pad) to wipe off excess dirt.

  • Face Wash.

This is my ‘go-to’ way of removing my makeup when I have the energy and time to do so (usually if I remove my makeup during the evening and not late at night). I know it is getting annoying, but once again I’m going to mention it, I love using the Vitamin E face wash by The Body Shop (shop here). Using warm water, I first wet my entire face, then lather a small amount of the soap between my hands and gently scrub my face and neck using circular motion.

  • Cleanser, Toner & Exfoliator.

These steps, to be honest I hardly do, but there are very important (apparently). Every now and then I love using an exfoliator, especially if I wore heavy makeup for multiple days in a row. Although for toners and cleansers I hardly use simply because I’m too lazy to. But! I am working on changing my ways and hopefully I will push myself to start using them.

  • Oil- Coconut Oil.

I personally did not try this method yet, but I’ve read you could use it to remove your makeup in two ways. The first way is applying a small amount of the coconut oil on a cotton bad to remove makeup, or second to apply the oil directly on your face, gently rubbing your face in a circular motion to remove all the makeup. Again, as usual, I would recommend using organic coconut oil since you’re directly applying it on your face.
