Removing your make up at the end of the day is a highly important task if you wish to keep your skin fresh and in good condition. The skin around the eyes is particularly important as it is extra sensitive. This article explores how to choose the best eye make up remover and which are the most effective on the market.
How to choose an eye make up remover
- Ensure that your eye make up remover is oil-free. This will prevent oily residue from lingering around your eyes as you sleep and will facilitate your make up application in the morning - Choose an eye make up remover that includes a moisturiser if you are susceptible to dry skin around the eyes. This will also condition your eye lashes (Nivea makeup) - Choose an eye make up remover that targets waterproof mascara even if you don't wear it. This will ensure that your mascara comes off easily, without you having to pull half of your eyelashes out to get a result - If you have sensitive skin around the eyes, or wear contact lenses, select an eye make up remover specifically designed not to include harsh chemicals. These will be softer on sensitive skin and minimise irritation
