  1. View. There are several forms of release of makeup removers: micellar water – has a complex effect, is hypoallergenic, at the same time removes makeup and cleanses the skin of toxins and waste products. Cream and milk – due to the oily component, they neutralize dirt and remove make-up, have a moisturizing and nourishing effect. A two-phase agent – usually water and oil, and when mixed, it can effectively remove even persistent makeup. Gel – immediately removes makeup and washes the face thoroughly cleansing it
  2. Skin type. For dry, cream and milk are suitable, as it will moisturize the skin well. If the type is oily, it is better to purchase micellar water or gel. Micellar water is also suitable for sensitive skin prone to allergic reactions. If you are the owner of the normal type, then almost all means will be effective.
  3. Age. Often, ingredients are added to makeup removers that can solve additional tasks, for example, fight acne or age-related skin aging. Consider this factor when studying the composition of the product.
  4. Season. The choice should be based on the season in which the use of the product is planned. For a cold one, choose something that provides nutrition, and for a hot one – protection from UV rays and moisture.
  5. Individual characteristics. Be sure to look at the problems that the skin has. If there is peeling, redness, then focus on micellar water. Treat dry skin with products containing an oily component (milk, cream). The problem should not be overdried, but the makeup remover should contain antibacterial components that inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria that cause acne. Do not forget about your own feelings, for example, after use there should be no feeling of tightness, dryness, tingling, itching. If this occurs, replace the product.
