Don’t Leave Your Makeup on Overnight

Don’t leave it on overnight!

Coming home after an exhausting night out, and the thought of spending time taking off all that make-up seems like a daunting task. But, aside from being bad for your beautiful pillow cases, going to bed with make-up on is the worst thing you can do to your skin. The residual makeup can clog your pores, leading to multiple skin problems, like blackheads, breakouts and accelerating wrinkles. Follow this simple and quick makeup removal routine to ensure you wake up with a clean and fresh face. Check out Ascia’s makeup removal routine here .

  1. Tie your hair back

    Putting your hair in a ponytail gets it off your face, exposing the hairline, which is where a lot of make-up residues tends to build up.

  2. Take care of your lips first

    Removing the lip make-up first avoids a big mess later. A cotton pad soaked in liquid or cream makeup remover should take off most lipsticks.

  3. Wipe your face clean

    Using a face wipe for maximum cleansing coverage is step 1 to full facial cleansing. Let the wipe rest on the face for a minute, particularly the eye area, and then swipe it clean – this allows the minerals, vitamins and moisturisers in the wipe to moisten the make-up and helps for more effective cleaning.

  4. The perfect wash

    A gentle gel wash is great for that final touch to ensure that all the residue is gone, and you are left with clean and fresh skin. You can also follow it up with a toner and moisturiser to complete your routine.
