4. Always Remove Makeup
Sleeping with your makeup on is one of the most frequent and baneful habits you can have. Makeup is for covering your skin, not for improving its health. In fact, makeup can damage the health of your skin and the longer you leave it on, the worse its effects can be. You must remove makeup every night, all the way down to clean skin. Makeup that needs special chemicals for removal is probably doing more damage to your skin than makeup that comes off with soap and water. I’d like to share with you several efficient and easy ways to remove your make up without special expenses. And what is most important is that you won’t have irritation or allergy, unlike using harsh commercial makeup removals. The first way is to use baking powder and honey. It sounds weird, but believe me it works! Just mix 1 tablespoon of powder and honey in your palm and gently rub the surface. This method is probably the best as it suits all skin types and all kinds of make-up.
You can also remove your makeup with the help of olive oil. This way, you will nourish and mollify your skin at one time. However, be careful if you have oily skin type – you can only worsen the greasiness. Finally, you can resort to oatmeal. This method is my favorite since it is ideal for sensitive, acne-prone and itching skin. Plus, it foams very easily and produces the effect of a gentle exfoliant. So you are only to choose what you like.
