6 Beauty Treatments That Are a B!*ch to Remove -- and the Best Ways to Get Them Off
Glitter nail polish. Eyelash extensions. Waterproof mascara. All fun to wear -- all a nightmare to take off. Here's how to remove makeup and other beauty treatments that are notoriously a pain in the you-know-where to remove
How to remove makeup residueWhether it's long-wear foundation or concealer that doesn't want to budge, getting off every last drop of makeup can be tough. And while repeatedly washing your face with cleanser can leave you feeling thoroughly clean, it can also be seriously drying. Instead, slather on a layer of cold cream when you want to remove makeup residue. Cold cream was originally created to remove makeup and it's still a great option. It's a mix of oils and emulsifiers that soothe skin while leaving your face clean and makeup-free -- and the cooling sensation makes for a great, relaxing face mask.
Step 1: Wash your face with a gentle cleanser, then pat dry.
Step 2: Slather on a thick layer of cold cream. We recommend Pond's Cold Cream, $4.49. Let it soak in for a few minutes.
Step 3: Wipe off the cream with a warm washcloth to remove stubborn makeup residue.
