I don't know about you, but I dread that moment when I'm all ready to get into bed, and suddenly remember that I need to remove my make-up first! I always seem to leave it till the last minute, when I'm really tired and can't really be bothered. But, alas, it is a very important step towards a successful skincare routine, as not removing your make-up before bed will only lead to dirty, congested and blemish-prone skin, not to mention grubby pillows! I like to keep my skincare as simple as possible, so here are the products I use to remove my make-up:
First, I will remove every last trace of eye make-up with Neal's Yard Remedies Organic Eye Make-up Remover - this is very gentle yet effective in removing even tough mascara. Depending on how I feel, I will either use Olivado's Extra Virgin Avocado Oil or the Handmade Naturals Avocado & Plum Face Cleansing Lotion to remove the rest of my make-up and at the same time, cleanse my face. Both products do a really great job at removing all traces of make-up and grime from the day. My skin seems to love avocado and is left clearer and softer after using these lovely products. If I am really exhausted or feeling exceptionally lazy, as a last resort I will remove my make-up with a cleansing wipe, such as the ECO CARE Rose & Chamomile Cleansing Wipes, which will do a pretty good job at removing all make-up, but won't leave my skin feeling as deeply cleansed and cared for and will require a good dose of moisturiser after use. After cleansing my face and removing make-up, I like to spritz my skin with a rosewater toner and then apply moisturiser and/or rosehip oil.
