How to Remove Waterproof Makeup Naturally
Waterproof doesn’t mean oil proof!
Saturate a cotton ball with olive oil and massage it over your face. The olive oil will break down any makeup on your face, no matter how thick. Make sure to work it into your lashes to remove all the mascara. Olive oil also does a great job of moisturizing your skin without clogging your pores.
Marula oil is an even better alternative for removing makeup – it’s more hydrating than olive oil and may even repair the skin and protect it from future damage. Also, my skin care line Silk Genesis has a Make-Up Removing Bakuchiol Gel-Balm that melts away makeup and dirt without drying the skin and even has anti-aging benefits!
Use Face Wash to Cleanse Excess Oil
Before you pat yourself on the back and admire your clean face, remember that using an oil is only the first step in your waterproof makeup removal process. Sure, an oil can dissolve waterproof makeup quickly, but it’s time to cleanse with water.
After you’ve broken down all the makeup on your face, the next step is to use a cleanser to wash away the dissolved makeup and excess oil. As luxurious as your skin may feel while massaging oil into it, resist the urge to skip this step!
Follow with Serum and Moisturizer
After you’ve cleansed and dried your face, the next step of removing your makeup is to follow with a serum. You want your skin to be beautiful under your makeup too, right? Serums spot treat any skin issue you may have, like controlling oiliness, smoothing skin texture, and evening tone.
Last, finish off with a moisturizer. Even after you’ve used hydrating olive or marula oil, you still want to make sure that your skin stays moisturized all night.
