Removing your make-up the right way

Removing your make-up the right wayRemoving your make-up is an essential part of any woman's skincare routine. Why is it so important to not skip this step and what are the benefits for your dark or olive skin?

We can't say it enough: cleansing your skin is a non-negotiable step if you want to have a bright, smooth complexion. During the day, skin accumulates impurities from pollution, make-up, etc. At night, skin perspires, produces sebum and renews itself by shedding dead skin cells. Cleansing your face in the morning and evening helps keep skin supple and silky smooth, eliminate impurities and ensure that make-up stays put during the day. It is also important to differentiate between make-up removal, which removes foundation, powder, mascara, etc. and cleansing, which completes make-up removal by eliminating impurities from the skin.


Because most women with black and olive skin have combination or oily skin (read our  Beauty Tip on this topic), they need to feel that their skin is refreshed: they like to feel that their skin is deeply cleansed to remove the unpleasant feeling of oiliness. Use products than can be rinsed with water, such as cleansing gels and foams like CLEAN'OYA® My Foam Purifying Cleansing (which will both cleanse skin and regulate excess sebum) micellar water to remove make-up, such as CLEAN'OYA® My Cleasing Micellar Water Sensitive Skin.

These products, which are refreshing and non-greasy, tone, purify and soften the epidermis. Women with combination or oily skin should avoid using no-rinse make-up removing lotions and emulsions, which are more suited to dry to very dry skin. Micellar water is a must-have product and is ideal for all skin types, including very dry skin.

To deeply cleanse your skin, you can also use an exfoliating gel such as CLEAN'OYA® EXTRA My Gel Cleanser Exfoliating, which will help remove impurities from your skin and promote cell renewal to optimize the effectiveness of your dark spot correcting or anti-imperfection. treatment. The soap-free formula gently cleanses and is suitable for all skin types.


For a bright complexion and silky smooth skin, give your face a final splash of cold water to shrink pores and rejuvenate your complexion! Also remember to moisturise your skin well after removing your make-up.
