Make-up removal and cleansing for sensitive eyes

share, link, spread

Cleansing and removing make-up are two fundamental steps in caring for sensitive eyes.

Facial skin is subjected daily to harmful external factors such as dust, pollution, dirt, etc., and it is for this reason that it must be thoroughly cleansed every day.

Cleansing is a fundamental routine in caring for sensitive eyes. In addition to preparing the skin in the periocular area for creams and other treatments to be applied, periocular hygiene is important so as to eliminate excess flaking and sebum, as well as other eye secretions from eyelids and eyelashes.

This fact is a key aspect in preventing complications associated with some pathologies that affect sensitive eyes: such as blepharitis, rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis or dry eye.

Eyelid and eyelash hygiene is also essential for people who wear contact lenses or who have undergone a recent ophthalmological surgery, since careful periocular cleansing helps to eliminate potentially pathogenic microorganisms and, therefore, reduces the risk of eye infections, such as styes or conjunctivitis, among other diseases.

Make-up remover for sensitive eyes

Removing make-up is the first step in your night time routine whenever you wear make up. This should be done using a specific product for sensitive eyes, since the skin around the eyes is different from the skin on the rest of the body and requires special care to avoid attacking or damaging the area, as well as itching or irritation.

Make-up remover for sensitive eyes helps to remove dead skin, dirt, sebaceous fat and make-up from the periocular area, which is characterised by its extreme sensitivity and susceptibility to external aggressions.

It is important to use fluid and fresh make-up removers, with a tear pH that has been tested on contact lens wearers, ensuring that they are suitable for caring for sensitive eyes.

As well as removing cosmetic residues, make-up and accumulated dirt, make-up removers for sensitive eyes must also respect the hydrolipidic film. This effect is achieved by combining the action of mild surfactants with emollients or moisturisers.

Specific cleansing preparations for the eye contour area are also defined by the fact that they do not include alcohol or perfumes in their composition. On the other hand, it is good for them to contain ingredients with soothing and anti-irritant properties, such as bisabolol.
