You spend so much time applying your makeup in the morning that the last thing you want to do when the day is over is erase all of your hard work. But sleeping in your makeup is a total skin care no-no. That’s because when you snooze in your makeup, it can mix with the dirt and oil that has built up on the surface of your skin, leading to clogged pores, which can lead to breakouts.
But when you’re traveling, the last thing you want to do is pack so many skin care products that you don’t have much room left in your suitcase for much else. No worries—the following three makeup remover options from L'Oréal Paris are super-convenient. Here, find out which makeup removers are best for traveling and how to use them.
Makeup Remover Option #1: Micellar Water
Micellar water has been a French-favorite cleanser for years—and for good reason. Micellar water is powered by tiny micelles—oil molecules—that act as a magnet to lift dirt, oil, and makeup up and away from the skin’s surface. The reason why it’s a good option when you’re traveling? It doesn’t require any rinsing, so you don’t need to be near a sink to use it! Whether you decide to cleanse your skin before boarding a plane or keep one in your tote to remove your makeup on the go, it’s definitely a good skin care product to have on hand while you’re jet-setting.
Ready to find your micellar water match? The L'Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin purifies and mattifies, the L'Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water for Normal to Dry Skin hydrates and soothes, and the L'Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Waterproof – All Skin Types intensely purifies.
Regardless of which micellar water you choose, remember to stash a pack of cotton rounds in your suitcase as well. To use, just saturate a cotton pad with your micellar water of choice and wipe the pad across your face.
Makeup Remover Option #2: Towelettes
OK, what skin care product could be more convenient than towelettes? When you’re on the go sightseeing one stop after the next, it could be a good idea to keep a pack of towelettes in your tote bag for easy access. The L'Oréal Paris Ideal Clean™ Makeup Removing Towelettes are ultra-soft and gently yet effectively remove all traces of makeup—even waterproof mascara or long-wear makeup! Plus, the wipes are alcohol-free, so they won’t dry out your skin.
Like micellar water, these towelettes don’t require rinsing afterwards. All you have to do is gently wipe your face and eye area. Afterwards, follow up with a moisturizer formulated for your skin type. Try the L'Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin, L'Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, or L'Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin. Each one is formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe water to help provide long-lasting hydration.
Makeup Remover Option #3: Eye Makeup Remover
Can’t go out without your mascara, eye shadow, and eyeliner perfectly in place? We feel you. After all, you’re probably going to be snapping a few vacation selfies, so it makes sense that you’d want your eye makeup to look on point! In that case, bring the L'Oréal Paris Clean Artiste Waterproof & Long Wearing Eye Makeup Remover with you. The double-action formula gently and easily removes waterproof and long-wearing makeup. Concentrated makeup-removing ingredients effectively eliminate all signs of makeup. What’s more, it leaves a luxuriously soft, fresh sensation without a greasy residue.
Again, you’re going to want to store a pack of cotton balls in your suitcase before you head out on your trip. To use, shake the bottle well to blend the two phases. Then, sweep a cotton ball or pad over closed eyelids and lashes until all traces of makeup are removed.
