2 Important Tricks to Know When Removing Makeup
Avoid from Scrubbing Your Skin
You should clean your skin by massaging in circular movements. Then you can clean it with water and dry it using towel paper. For spotty skin, you should not use a towel for drying. The towel used contains many bacteria and increases acne formation.
Be Gentle With Your Eye Area
The area around the eyes, the most sensitive area of the skin, should be cleaned carefully and gently. In order to prevent the rupture of eyelashes, redness in the eyes and scaling under the eyes, you should pour the natural make-up cleansing water on a cotton ball and rub it around your eyes with gentle movements.
