How should I remove make-up if I have sensitive, fragile or dry skin?
1. Sensitive skin is fragile skin
Sensitive skin is skin that reacts to the slightest external factor, becoming tight-feeling and uncomfortable. As soon as skin is disturbed, redness can appear, and skin texture may feel rough and uneven. Why? Because when this happens, the hydrolipidic film is disrupted, leaving skin unprotected.
2. Gentle cleansing
Cleansing sensitive skin should be an extremely gentle process to avoid further disruption. Start by gently removing your make-up with a make-up remover designed for fragile skin. Use products with a creamy texture, such as the Cleansing Milk, which you can use morning and/or evening , preferably using the Clarins professional cleansing method. The method involves warming the lotion in the palms of your hands to bring it up to body temperature before gently patting your hands on your face (making sure not to apply too much pressure) and then quickly releasing them, as if your skin were burning hot. Repeat this technique seven times. Rinse thoroughly or wipe clean with a tissue and finish off with a Toning Lotion suited to your skin type.
3. What next?
Once your skin is perfectly cleansed, apply a mild toner, preferably one with an alcohol-free formula. Try the Extra-Comfort Toning Lotion with Aloe Vera: its light gel formula should instantly feel good on the skin. Complete by moisturizing your skin with the Gentle Day Cream for Sensitive Skin. This cream is perfect for nourishing vulnerable skins while protecting them.
