How to quickly take off your makeup before bed
Confession time: how many of you have defied the rules of simple skin care and gone to bed with a full face of make-up on? Even just once?
Yeah, we’ve all been guilty of it. I’m not even that ashamed* to say I’ve done it more than once. But it doesn’t make it right.
So here’s the solution for the girl who just wants to get into bed as soon as she walks in the door: micellar water
Sure, make-up wipes are incredibly useful, but micellar water is a winning solution. Its unique formulation works that little bit harder to remove all traces of make-up – even that pesky eyeliner and mascara that never budges.
See, the water-like formulation contains micells, an active cleansing ingredient that basically targets dirt and impurities on your skin (i.e. make-up) and gently washes them from your face.
To get the most out of your micellar water, squirt a generous amount on a soft cotton pad and wipe your face repeatedly until your skin is clean and clear of any traces of dirt and make-up. Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Cleansing is one of the newer micellar waters on the market and works wonders to effectively remove dirt and impurities without the need for vigorous rubbing (so it’s really gentle). The formulation is suitable for all skin types and is incredibly kind to the ol’ bank account.
Another added bonus? Along with removing make-up, it also leaves skin feeling clean and fresh, too. So, in theory, it wouldn’t be a total disaster to head to bed after this step. But obviously we would never condone that…
* Okay, I’m a little ashamed.
Have you ever used micellar water before? Are you guilty of going to bed without washing your face?
