Makeup Tip: Baby steps for gentle makeup removal

Removing makeup is a daily challenge and chore for most women. Using soaps, detergents or alcohol-based cleansers may lead to dry skin and/or irritation, which, in turn accelerates skin aging.

Since most types of makeup are oil-soluble, many people successfully use baby oil to remove makeup. Simply, dip a tissue in a bit of baby oil and wipe you face until makeup comes off. Then you can simply rinse your face with water (no need to use soap), and your face will remain soft and moisturized.

Eye area makeup, such as mascara, is often resistant to removal and may not yield to baby oil. Should that happen, one alternative is to use baby shampoo. Baby shampoos tend to contain softer detergents and at lower concentrations, which makes them less irritating (and not just for eyes but for the skin as well) for both eyes and skin.
