Cleanser new era
Do not remove makeup before going to bed is like sleeping in a garbage ... HELL.
Furthermore the makeup that all more or less are wearing daily, our skin is clogged with dust, pollution and dead cells that accumulates and stores in excess. Do not remove them conscientiously at night asphyxiate and killing the capital youth of the skin.. Made the test of Dailymail journalist who has not cleansed for a month, you will see this is perfect to get 10 years in the face.
However, I often find that removing makeup is the step that many women neglect by laziness, ignorance or lack of time surely ...
Ah! this applies to you as well? Then this post is for you;)
The best method for removing makeup that I was teached during my cosmetics studies, known and recognized for its effectiveness, it is cleansing with milk followed by a lotion.
The "greasy" texture of the milk is ideal to emulsify make-up and impurities, and it's composition respects the PH of the skin because it is very close. Lotion, it then serves to remove greasy residues.
However, I always thought that using a ton of cotton to clean was not very green. Especially as cotton, it's pretty abrasive and not great for sensitive skin ...
The simplest and softest that's just use the tips of the fingers!
Dixit Joelle Ciocco's the great papesse of cosmeto: apply the cleanser with your fingertips in deep and circular motion for 1 minute, nothing like it to take off all traces of makeup and other residues.
Rinsed with warm water directly with your hands. Then finish with a well soaked cotton of lotion / floral water to remove the last traces of cleanser and neutralize hard water onto the skin. At this stage, you can then opt for washable fabric cotton is really greener.
The advantage of this method?
- The skin is deeply cleansed and skin integrity is respected.
- Massaging the skin stimulates blood circulation, guaranteed healthy glow!
- The ritual lasts not more than 3 minutes, I think everyone can manage it
- No more waste of cotton!
It seems that brands are riding more on this concept by cleansing softer and greener ... So MMB made a small selection of our favorite makeup remover.
