Benefits of removing your makeup
To begin, removing the makeup from the skin not only involves removing the residues adhered to the skin, but you are also oxygenating the face by removing all the dead cells that have accumulated on the face during the day.

In addition, it is impossible not to talk about the health of our eyelashes. If during the night we do not remove the mascara from our eyelashes, they dehydrate more easily, becoming the most fragile hairs, which can cause depopulation or breakage of those we have. But the eyelashes are not the only ones, the dark circles suffer with the grease of the makeup generating small and ugly little bags and the lips also suffer dryness and cracked.
Makeup removal is good for eye health
And is that make-up removal before bedtime is essential for our face to maintain its vitality and freshness, but it is also essential to enjoy good eye health since the negative effects of not removing makeup correctly multiply in those people who wear contact lenses. If the cleaning of the eyelids is not adequate, chronic blepharitis (itching and redness of the eye) can cause irritation or even allergies. Therefore we suggest a series of tips to make your beauty ritual appropriate.
First of all, wash your hands before approaching your face and, above all, before handling contact lenses. Before starting the makeup removal ritual, it is necessary to remove contact lenses, which should be cleaned in the palm of the hand with the maintenance liquid before storing them.
The use of quality make-up removal products is very important. Therefore, it is recommended to use gels, facial tonics, creams and make-up removers that are hypoallergenic and oil-free (non-fatty). In addition, to proceed with the cleaning of eyelashes and eyelids it is necessary to use a braided cotton folded in the shape of a crescent. It is also highly recommended to use cotton swabs with a cleaning product to remove all residues from the eyelid and tear area.
