First things first. If you follow just one of these steps in your cleansing routine, removing your makeup should be it. From blocked pores to congested skin – failing to remove makeup before bed can really mess with your complexion and is just asking for a breakout the next day. To help speed up this (admittedly arduous) process, I use Caudalie's Cleansing Oil. This product helps to dissolve makeup (even the waterproof stuff) and lift away dirt and grime fast. Simply emulsify it in your hands with a little warm water and rub it into your skin with your fingers or a warm cloth.
