ULTRA CALMING® Makeup Removal Routine

A vital component of healthy looking skin is regular makeup removal. Makeup covers the pores, reducing the skin’s ability to breathe. In response, the skin produces more oils in an attempt to clear the makeup away. Instead of removing the makeup, the skin's oils combine with it which further clogs pores. To reduce the risk of developing whiteheads, blackheads, and acne, as well as to allow oxygen to reach the skin, makeup needs to be removed properly, using a product that is gentle on the skin. AVEENO® ULTRA CALMING® Makeup Removing Wipes can be the perfect product to easily, quickly, and gently remove makeup. These wipes contain gentle cleansers that remove makeup and are infused with feverfew, a herb related to chamomile, which can help soothe and calm the skin, helping to reduce the look of redness and calming irritation.

Here's our favorite makeup removal routine:

  1. Prep Your Face
    It doesn't take much to get ready to remove your makeup with AVEENO® ULTRA CALMING® Makeup Removing Wipes. You only need to secure your hair back away so that you can easily access all areas of your face. A headband or hair tie will do the trick.
  2. Get Your Tools
    All that you need to remove your makeup is one AVEENO® ULTRA CALMING® Makeup Removing Wipe. Although these wipes are gentle, they are still mighty: they are thoroughly saturated and can remove even the heaviest makeup applications. Simply open the lid and remove one wipe. Make sure to securely close the lid after you remove your wipe to prevent the other wipes from drying out.
  3. Start with Your Eyes
    Eye makeup, especially mascara, is generally the most difficult to remove, which is why this is the best place to start. With the AVEENO® ULTRA CALMING® Makeup Removing Wipes, eye makeup removal can be a breeze. Gently swipe the wipe over your closed eye lids and under your eyes a few times until the makeup is gone.
  4. Cleanse the Rest of Your Face
    Once you are done with your eyes, it is time to remove the makeup from the rest of your face. Flip the wipe over to expose the fresh side. Gently swipe the wipe over your entire face to expose clean skin.
  5. After Cleansing
    There is no need to rinse after cleansing with the AVEENO® ULTRA CALMING® Makeup Removing Wipes. These wipes leave your skin feeling fresh, soothed, and moisturized. Complement cleansing with AVEENO® ULTRA CALMING® Moisturizer with SPF 15 or SPF 30 to help protect your skin from damage caused by UV rays.

Makeup removal has never been easier with AVEENO® ULTRA CALMING® Removing Wipes. Now you can even remove your makeup when you are on the go and have refreshed, clean, soothed healthy looking skin, all with the help of AVEENO® products and naturally derived ingredients.
