Makeup Remover

What it is and what it is for?


It is essential to clean up the skin, not only to eliminate makeup, but also to remove impurities on the skin surface and excess sebum accumulated throughout the day or night.
In this way, it prevents problems such as the appearance of acne, problems with skin hydration, premature aging, skin irritation and excess oiliness.


What are the most used ingredients and their function?


Makeup removers have several ingredients, the most common of which are the following:
Glycolic acid, which has exfoliating benefits, which causes the elimination of dead cells in the skin, smoothing it out. In addition, it also increases collagen levels in the skin, being great for improving skin texture and balancing oiliness.
Ceramides, lipids that keep the skin barrier strong and healthy, sealing moisture in the skin, which promotes intense hydration.
Vitamin C, an important component, as it is a great antioxidant that helps to neutralize free radicals harmful to the skin and also stimulates the production of skin collagen.
Salicylic acid, an ingredient with exfoliating and sebum regulating properties, that is, it renews the skin, removing dead cells and excess oil. In addition, it promotes an anti-inflammatory action.
Glycerin, which has the ability to prevent the skin from losing moisture, keeping the skin hydrated and free from dryness.
Mineral oil, a care that serves as a preservative and helps retain moisture.
Retinol, also known as vitamin A, an excellent ingredient for the skin as it increases skin renewal, which means it helps to get rid of dead skin cells and stimulates the generation of new healthy skin cells.


Which various types exist and what are their differences?


The gels are designed for deep cleaning. In addition, they are effective in decongesting clogged pores, removing excess oil and eliminating acne-causing bacteria, such as Gel Démaquillant DTox by Payot.
Milks and makeup remover lotions are products with a soft and soothing texture and are good for any skin type. In addition, they promote a gentle cleansing to the skin without removing its natural oil, such as Le Lait Fraicheur Cleansing Milk-To-Water by Chanel and Waso Beauty Smart Water by Shiseido.
The makeup remover foam is a care like a cream or gel and turns into a rich foam. It has been designed to effectively remove excess oil from the skin, such as Hangover Wash The Day Away by Too Faced.
Cleansing oils are cares that gently remove residues that clog pores, without causing dry skin, such as L'Huile Anti-Pollution Cleansing Oil by Chanel.
Finally, micellar water is a makeup remover made up of micelles that attract oil, dirt and makeup to promote clean skin. Another feature of this product is that it does not require rinsing, such as The Cleansing Micellar Water by La Mer.


What is the most used packaging format and what are the most frequent sizes?


The cleaning gels can be in a dispenser, tube or bottle. Their quantities are diverse and can range from 15ml to 400ml.
Milks and cleaning lotions also have packaging in a doser, tube or bottle and their quantity ranges from 30ml to 400ml.
In the case of cleaning foam, it comes in tubes, flasks and dosers, with quantities of 100ml to 400ml.
Cleaning oils are available in dispensers, tubes and bottles. Quantities can range from 50ml to 400ml.
The micellar water is in a doser, flask and tube with the amount of 200ml.


What to take into account when choosing a makeup remover?


When choosing a facial cleansing care, it is important to assess your skin type and understand if the care corresponds to it, otherwise it may cause adverse effects to those desired.
You should also choose a care that contains at least some of the ingredients mentioned above.
You should also understand which texture you like best and understand what your skin needs, such as hydration, control of excess oil, an intense and deep cleaning, among others.


What are the recommendations for use and tips?


You should choose a product that meets your skin's needs.
You should clean your skin twice a day, once upon waking up and once at bedtime, as nighttime cleaning removes makeup, pollutants and dirt from the day, while morning removes dead skin cells.
When applying care to your face, either with your hands or with a cotton pad, never rub, as this will irritate your skin. Remove dirt with gentle movements.


What are the pros and cons of using makeup remover?


Makeup removers clean and soften the skin, however we must take into account the disadvantages.
Allergic reactions can be triggered by these products. Therefore, it is important to check the composition of the product.
In addition, if the cleaning is done excessively, it will weaken the immune system and can also cause the skin to dry out.
On the other hand, depending on the purpose of the care, it can bring numerous benefits, such as: removing dirt, makeup and other unwanted impurities from the face; deeply moisturize the skin; control excess sebum in the skin; help reduce minor acne problems; combats skin aging; reduces pore sizes; promotes more beautiful and healthy skin.
