How to Properly Remove Eye Makeup, According to Experts

It’s the step we’d all sometimes rather forget on nights when we’re extra tired, but removing your makeup at the end of the day is essential for a few reasons. Leftover makeup around the eyes can clog your pores or lead to a stye or infection, says board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jessie Cheung. Plus, she adds, a clean surface also means enhanced penetration of skincare. Ophthalmologist Dr. Ashley Brissette adds that removing eye makeup is also crucial for eye health. "The surface of our eyes needs to be well hydrated for us to see clearly," she says. "If debris, dryness, or bacterial overgrowth occur, this can affect the vision and also put us at risk for infections."

That said, knowing the importance of removing eye makeup leaves us with one question: How do you properly remove eye makeup? Ahead, experts share the best way to do so in just a few easy steps.

“If debris, dryness, or bacterial overgrowth occur, this can affect the vision and also put us at risk for infections.”
