Make-up Removal Tip

A frequent concern of my clients is that the cleanser they’re using is not removing all their make-up.  Which is no surprise, make-up is designed to stay on the skin, so it makes sense that it would be hard to remove. Try this tip: pre-cleanse your skin with oil. Yes, even if you have oily skin.  Make-up breaks down more easily with oil than it does with cleanser, meaning no make-up residue to clog your pores. Just massage a few drops into moistened skin to dissolve the make-up and then follow with your favorite cleanser to wash away the oil and make-up. Gently remove with a wet, soft wash cloth.
My go to oil is Aveda’s Beautifying Composition with the wonderful aroma of lavender, rosemary and bergamot.  Or try a little bit of olive oil, a common ingredient in skin care products.  Added benefit-softer skin.
