If only Siri, Alexa or even Aladdin and his genie could help you take off your makeup after a long, tiring day! Since neither of those are options, it is up to you to remove all signs of makeup before you hit the bed. Not all skin types are made equal, and therefore you need to be careful about picking the right makeup remover for your particular skin type.
Dry skin
 

Dry skin

Use: cleansing milks or cream-based makeup removers

Soak a cotton ball in the liquid-y consistency of the cleanser and wipe away the makeup gently. We like the Lakmé Deep Cleanser Cleansing Milk for a gentle yet thorough cleansing before bed time.

Oily skin
 

Oily skin

Use: Gel-based makeup removers

These do not make your skin feel greasy and also do not leave any residue behind when you use them. They do not affect the oils found naturally on your skin, so your skin is left intact. You could also try the Lakmé Absolute Bi-Phased Make-up Remover which is a light liquid that is perfect for oily skin!

All skin types
 

All skin types

Use: oil cleansers or micellar water/micellar wipes

Oil cleansers are ideal to use as the first step in a 2-step cleansing process. This is helpful when you wear waterproof makeup. First massage the oil cleanser and loosen the makeup and then use a regular foaming cleanser to rinse the makeup off.

If you are using micellar water, soak a cotton ball in it and gently wipe away the makeup. This is a non-drying option and is great for all skin types. If you are travelling or do not have the time, use micellar wipes that fuss-free and do a good job of getting all makeup off!

Try: Simple Kind to Skin Micellar Cleansing Water or Simple Kind to Skin Micellar Cleansing Wipes
