The best skin care hacks to remove makeup

It’s important to completely remove your makeup at the end of the day to ensure that your skin can breathe and renew itself at night. There are a multitude of ways to remove makeup, but you might not be aware of these hacks to get the most out of your makeup removal routine. Read on to find out how you can cleanse your face with products you might not have considered before. These can make your life a lot easier and give you glowing skin post-make up removal!

1. Micellar Water

Micellar water is one of the most innovative products you can use to remove make up. It can easily remove all traces of product whether it’s foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, blush, mascara or bronzer. A lot of makeup removers perform separate functions, either for skin or for eye makeup, but micellar water is useful because it can do both. To use, saturate two cotton pads or more with micellar water, gently press the cotton pads against your skin, then wipe them across your skin. Repeat until the cotton pads are clean. It should remove any make up, oil, sweat and dirt off your face. There’s a micellar water for every skincare need: from original Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Makeup Remover to Micellar Makeup Removing Towelettes for on-the-go cleaning and Micellar Cleansing Water Travel Size for your next vacation. The micelles attract, cleanse skin gently, and refresh instantly. The added bonus is that there is no rinsing or no harsh rubbing so your skin will be clean but not irritated after cleansing.

2. Charcoal Cleansers At The Gym

The ideal way to work out is with a clean, make-up free face. Try to remove all make up, dirt and residue from your skin before you start your gym session. This will prevent your pores from getting clogged and future blemishes. Make things easy by carrying the best wipes for your skin type. Find the right formulas to fit in with your active lifestyle.

If your skin tends to be on the oily side try using charcoal to cleanse before you work out. Garnier SkinActive’s Clean+ Purifying Oil-Free Cleansing Towelettes are breathable and instantly remove pore-clogging dirt, oil and makeup from skin’s surface. The formula is infused with charcoal and quickly draws out impurities and lifts makeup off your face.

3. Gentle Cleanser

Who says you need harsh chemicals to remove makeup? Especially if you have sensitive skin, it’s helpful to stick with a gentle cleanser that can lift dirt, impurities, and of course makeup from your face without drying out or irritating your skin. We recommend The Gentle Sulfate-Free Cleanser, a lotion cleanser with a light foam that’s formulated without sulfates, parabens, alcohol, or fragrance, for maximum tenderness on skin.

4. Scrub + Cleanse

Do you love the skin-smoothing effects of a scrub? Make scrubbing an essential part of your skin care routine by merging it with your cleanser. A product like Garnier SkinActive’s Clean+ Invigorating Daily Scrub will help remove make up and also exfoliate your skin. The product infused with peppermint instantly energizes skin for a healthy look. Not only will this product get rid of makeup and any residue on your face, it also sets your skin up to be smooth, polished and brighter looking so that when you apply make up your product will go on evenly.
