You can spend all the money you want on the best makeup in the world but having to cover up a bad complexion will always be tricky. Skin care should be at the forefront of every makeup artists mind when it comes to their own and their clients’ best interests.
Ensuring you have a good skin care and makeup removal regime is paramount to getting the best out of your materials. The idea of carrying out a cleansing routine after a hard day of work or even a night out is something that a lot of people will be happy to worry about in the morning, that is not a good idea.
Leading experts and dermatologists all recommend a good cleanse in order to maintain as good a complexion as you can.
A popular, easy and successful facial cleanse is one that a lot of people are turning to. Using just coconut oil and micellar water you can achieve results that much more expensive products often claim and fail to live up to.
By massaging coconut into the skin for roughly 30 seconds it helps to breakdown all of your makeup, even stubborn and purpose bought makeup that can withstand quite a lot. Another benefit is that it leaves your skin feeling soft as well as moisturising you.
After you are confident that you have got the best from the coconut oil on your skin simply soak a large, soft cotton ball in micellar water where you can remove the remains.
This really is a great method that is quick, easy, cost effective and not the worst thing in the world to go through at the end of the day.
So what is micelle water anyway we hear you ask, well it is a soft water that has tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules in it. The balls of oil are attracted to the microscopic dirt that accumulates on your face and can help to offer a deeper clean without dehydrating your skin.
