The Art of Makeup Removal: Take The Right Steps

What's the right way to remove makeup effectively? Removing makeup completely is crucial for healthy skin, as little traces of makeup that stays on the skin can cause irritation, blemishes and blackheads. Milk, oil, water, foam or jelly, how do you know which texture to go for? Discover all our tips for properly cleaning and removing makeup off your face.

MAKEUP REMOVAL: A DAILY ROUTINE

As the name suggests, the role of makeup remover is to remove traces of makeup from your skin . Some people use foundation, concealer, mascara, blush, eye shadow, eyeliner, and lipstick. Others wear very little makeup, if at all.

No matter how many products you apply , it is essential to cleanse your skin well

In addition to makeup, makeup remover also removes all the impurities that accumulate on your face , such as excess sebum or particles of pollution and dust. These products are formulated to act gently and allow the skin to breathe. Say goodbye to imperfections!

Cleansing is simple and quick, and is easily integrated into your daily beauty routine. It is recommended to do it morning and evening, whether you are wearing makeup or not.

A CLEANSER FOR EVERY SKIN NEED

At L'OCCITANE, each of our products are designed to meet a specific need. We have developed a diversified range to allow each woman to remove makeup according to her skin type . Our innovative formulas cleanse the face and, for some, the lips and eyes, even if your skin is sensitive . They are all tested under dermatological and ophthalmological control.

DRY SKIN

If you have dry skin, go for a creamy texture. Our Cleansing Milk is made for you. Its rich and creamy texture purifies your skin while providing it with a first layer of hydration.

Another advantage of cleansing milk: it can be applied to the face, eyes and lips!

FOR STUBBORN MAKEUP

When using waterproof or long-lasting makeup, opt for an oily texture like that of our organic Cleansing Oil-To-Milk.

Just as its name suggests, the Oil-to-Milk transforms from a silky smooth oil into a milky emulsion when it comes into contact with water. And while it's gentle on the skin, it's tough on make-up, removing even stubborn and waterproof make-up, along with any impurities.

OILY & COMBINATION SKIN

Oily or combination skin requires a light formula like that of micellar water or cleansing gels. The 3-in-1 Micellar Water infused with cucumber and thymeliminates the impurities accumulated throughout the day (including excess sebum, traces of makeup), without drying and moisturises the skin.

This is the first step that invigorates and preps your skin for the products that follow. Apply the micellar water with a cotton pad to the face, eyelids and lips.

THE IMPORTANCE OF DOUBLE CLEANSING

Inspired by the beauty rituals of the women of Korea, double-cleansing deeply purifies your skin, leaving it radiant and clean, clean without feeling tight or dry.

The routine consists of two steps:

1. Use an oil-based cleanser to breakdown makeup and lift excess oil from your skin. This step is particularly important if you use SPF or live in an area with high air pollution.
2. Use a water-based cleanser to remove residual daily pollutants and prepare your skin for your toner and moisturiser.

 

THE BENEFITS OF NATURAL INGREDIENTS

Our L'OCCITANE products combine efficiency and respect for the environment. We carefully select the best of natural ingredients to provide you with the benefits of plants. Remove makeup by doing a good gesture for the planet!

Organic honey from Provence has softening, nourishing and protective properties, while fig is renowned for it's soothing properties.

The anti-aging properties of Corsican organic Immortelle essential oil are ideal for mature skin. It pairs perfectly with Calendula from the South of France, known for its softening properties. 

Refreshing cucumber & thyme is rich in zinc known to reduce imperfections, helping to purify the skin during this essential step of removing makeup.​

MAKE-UP REMOVAL IN YOUR BEAUTY ROUTINE

Makeup removal is the essential first step in your daily ritual. It prepares the skin to receive the following treatments.

For ecological reasons, we advise you to prefer reusable cottons for products that cannot be applied by hand. If the makeup remover you've chosen requires rinsing, use cold water. Then dry your face with a towel, patting gently.

Once your skin has been properly cleaned, you can move on to applying your cream or serum. Your skin is beautiful, clear and supple! Your complexion is fresh and radiant! Don't forget to scrub once or twice a week.
