Removing Eye Makeup

The more eye makeup you wear, the more important it is to use a specially formulated cleanser for the delicate eye area. This makes it much easier to remove even the most stubborn of waterproof or tearproof mascaras without pulling or dragging the sensitive skin around the eyes.

If you do not remove all traces of eye makeup whenever you wear it, pores will become blocked, which may lead to pimples. Always use a clean cotton ball, tissue, or cotton swab for each eye.

To remove makeup from the lids and brows, use the lip of your third finger to stroke in remover gently using small circular movements. Alternatively, use a cotton swab soaked in makeup remover.

Gently wipe off the remover from the lids and brows with a cotton pad. working from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eye. Again, do not rub or drag the skin.

To remove mascara, dab a little remover onto a tissue and wrap around your index finger. Brush the tissue through the lashes from underneath.

For the corner of the eye and the lower lash line, use a cotton swab dipped in remover. Afterward, lightly pat the whole eye area dry with a tissue.

Caring for Eyes

♦    Time targets the shin around the eyes first, so it is important to revitalize this area by using an eye cream morning and night.

♦    Use eye creams sparingly; too much can cause ptiffiness. To apply, place three or four dots below the eye and two on the brow bone. Stroke the cream in gently using your third, or ring, finger. If you use your index finger, you are more likely to stretch or drag the skin.

♦    Look for ultra-light eye creams with a low oil content as these penetrate the skin more easily.
