After a day that includes ‘get married’ in your to-do list, you may often neglect the very important task of removing all the makeup you have applied. We get it, you will be tired and you may not have much time after all the celebrations, but don’t let your skin suffocate and suffer under all the heavy bridal makeup.

Your wedding makeup is heavier than regular makeup and has more layers of water-proof products. If you want your skin to remain healthy and radiant till your honeymoon, we suggest you take extra care and make sure you include these makeup removing products into your kitty.

Here are some ways you can remove your heavy bridal makeup...

Olive or coconut oil

Since your wedding makeup is heavier and water-proof, you will need an oil-based remover. Any good quality oil will do the trick! Just take a little coconut oil or olive oil in your palms and massage it on your face until all the makeup is loosened. Then use a foaming cleanser like Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Facial Foam to gently cleanse all the makeup from your skin.

Vaseline Pure Skin Jelly

Vaseline Pure Skin Jelly is another great alternative to remove makeup that is heavy. Take a little Vaseline and massage it on your face until you see the makeup coming off. Next use a soft cotton pad to wipe away all the makeup and follow it up with a facial cleanser.

Water proof makeup remover

Stash a bottle of makeup remover like the Lakmé Absolute Bi-Phased Make-up Remover in your overnight bag and use it to get rid of all traces of makeup before bed. Just soak a cotton pad with the remover and gently clean your face with it.

Baby oil

Any baby oil is very gentle on the skin and you can use this mineral oil to massage and loosen all your makeup before you wipe it off with a cotton pad or a soft wash cloth. Follow this up with a foaming cleanser to remove all traces of makeup and oil.

Cold cream

Yes, you read that right. Cold creams like the trusted Pond’s Moisturising Cold Cream can also be used to loosen the heavy makeup you’ve applied. Apply a thin layer of cold cream all over your face and let it sit for 1-2 minutes. Massage the cream into your skin and once you see the makeup coming off, wipe it off with a tissue or soft face cloth. Follow it up with a cleanser and water rinse to get squeaky clean skin.
