How to remove sunscreen from face?

Estimate Cost : EUR

Time Needed : 5 minutes

Sunscreen is the key to any skincare routine, but you should always take the time to properly remove it before bed to prevent clogged pores and breakouts. Here’s the best way to remove sunscreen at night.

  1. Use an oil-based cleanser or makeup remover

    To effectively remove your sunscreen, you’ll have to do it in two stages. Use a cleansing oil or makeup remover for your first cleanse – these will effectively break down sunscreen and makeup without stripping the skin. If you like micellar water, it’ll work just as well in this stage.

  2. Double cleanse with a water-based cleanser

    Cleansing twice will rid skin of all impurities and ensure that no sunscreen residue is left behind. Use your favourite water-based cleanser for this step.

  3. Finish with a facial toner

    Add a refreshing boost of hydration and balance your skin’s pH levels with a toner of your choice, then follow with the rest of your nighttime skincare routine.
