Can we remove makeup in the shower?

Makeup removal is a crucial step in the beauty routine. It ensures the maintenance of a healthy, radiant skin. It's important to adopt the right techniques for makeup removal. How to remove makeup correctly? Is it possible to remove makeup in the shower? Everything you need to know about makeup removal in the shower.

Why is it important to remove makeup every day?

Removing makeup every evening is essential for makeup enthusiasts and even those who do not wear makeup. The end-of-day cleansing step should not be skipped to prevent the appearance of comedones or pimples. Indeed, makeup removal eliminates impurities that stick to the face throughout the day. This step also rids the skin of the excess sebum it naturally produces. Whether you wear makeup or not, remember to cleanse your face morning and evening.

Is it possible to remove makeup while showering?

There's nothing more satisfying than removing makeup under the shower. All the impurities and dirt that have clung to the face throughout the day are eliminated in just a few minutes. However, this action can have negative effects on the skin. If the makeup removers or cleansers used are harmless, the temperature of the water is the culprit.

Hot water that is directly sprayed onto the face can damage the hydrolipidic film and weaken the skin. On the contrary, it is recommended to wash the face with cold water, which is known to optimize microcirculation. It thus helps to tighten the skin's pores and maintain soft and clear skin.

Removing makeup in the shower: the new beauty routine.

Due to time constraints, many choose to remove their makeup in the shower. This is now possible thanks to the innovations of certain skincare manufacturers. All-in-one treatments are thus emerging, allowing for the removal of eye and face makeup in a single step. In some formulas, the combination of an oleogel and a hydrogel eliminates all makeup molecules. Pleasant to use, this type of makeup remover provides a sensation of softness. Unlike a soap or shower gel, it does not destabilize the skin's balance.

How to remove makeup with a shower-based makeup remover?

The shower makeup remover is typically available in two versions: one for sensitive skin and another suitable for all skin types. Here's how to use it:

  • Apply the makeup remover with your fingertips to dry eyes, making circular motions. You should feel your eyelashes becoming softer.

  • Apply a dollop of the treatment evenly on a dry face.

  • Then, rinse with warm water.

It's worth noting that some in-shower makeup removers are enriched with Vitamin E or Dexpanthenol.
