There is no denying that makeups make us more attractive and pleasant to the eyes of many Singaporeans. There is not harm on putting makeups – except of course if we have some allergies. In fact, some jobs require minimal makeup since it put colours to the skin. If we put makeups every day, we have to be wary of its effects if it is not removed properly.

It is enough to wear makeups for the whole day but come evening, before going to sleep, it is imperative that we remove the makeup. Perhaps we heard about a case in Korea where a girl (named Bae Dal-Mi) did not remove her makeup for two years. Instead of removing it, she just kept on retouching it. The girl’s mother was so worried that they visited the dermatologists.

According to the dermatologists, the girl significantly aged twice for not removing the makeup. The morale of the story is to always remove the makeup every day. If we do not remove the base and foundation plus the accumulated dirt, any beauty regimen will not be effective.

We have to remember that removing our makeup is the second most important skin care (the first being putting sunscreens). If we forget to remove it or we deliberately ignore it, it will lead to breakouts. No one wants breakouts! For this, we should always think that prevention is better than cure. Cleaning the face is simpler than getting rid of the zits. So, here are some effective ways to remove makeup properly:

  • Wipe out: The simplest thing to remove the day’s grime is through makeup wipes. There are many beauty stores here in Singapore offering makeup wipes. These makeup wipes are not that expensive plus they are completely safe.

  • Eye and lip remover: The skin around the eye is the most sensitive area that is why it requires a different type of remover. We can ask for the help of beauty experts which brands to consider.
  • Soothing cleansing oil: We can also try a different kind of makeup remover in the form of soothing cleansing oil. These oils are ideal for heavy makeups because they effectively combat almost every ingredient.
  • Olive oil mist: Mists may require more swipes to get the makeup but they have many ingredients that are specifically beneficial to the skin.

These are just some items that we need to consider for makeup removal. If we are not interested about makeup removers, we should not dream of makeups too! Whatever we do, we have to take care of the skin if we want to look our age.
