While cleansing your skin in the evening is an essential part of anyone’s skincare routine, removing eye make-up can often be neglected. It is, however, very important both for health of your eyes and that of the delicate skin around them:
1. The eyelid is lined with tiny glands that produce the protective and hydrating film of tear fluid. Failing to remove eye make-up can block these glands, interfering with the process of maintaining an unbroken film over the cornea and resulting in dry, irritated eyes.
2. Particles, oils and other ingredients from old make-up can enter the eye, causing irritation and redness.
You need to choose the products you use on your eyes very carefully; waterproof eye make-up may not budge during the day, but it is also difficult to remove without using products that are too harsh for the delicate eye area.
Dermalogica’s Soothing Eye Make Up Remover is designed to gently remove eye make-up without dehydrating the fragile skin. Its mild but effective formulation makes it an ideal choice for those who wear contact lenses or suffer from sensitive eyes.
Once you have removed your make-up, remember to rinse the area with warm water; this product is soluble, so rinsing will ensure that no residue is left at all, leaving the skin conditioned, lashes strengthened and both spotlessly clean!
