Removing makeup

Recommended Posts

Hi all ! I'm new here (adult, 42 yr old, has had acne since I was a teen) and about to start the Regimen

Do you remove makeup first with a "regular" cleanser or oil before cleansing with the acne.org product ?

I kinda feel like the 10 seconds of cleansing may not get rid of makeup AND clean my skin....

I don't use acne.org cleanser, I use cetaphil but the way I remove makeup is to make sure I saturate a cotton pad with Micellar Water to the point where it's dripping wet, I feel that if the cotton pad is really soaked then it isn't dragging on my skin and causing irritation. I then go ahead with the regimen. If you're wearing light makeup then you could try removing it with the cleanser or using the moisturiser but if it's heavy makeup then that may not be enough to remove it. If you can, try not to wear face makeup so that your skin has the best chance of clearing. The ingredients in makeup could cause clogged pores and the removal process can irritate the skin.
