After a long day at work or a late night out, all you want to do is get home and get to bed. Removing your makeup is just an annoyance getting in the way of sleep, so you wipe and smear it off quickly without a thought.

The skin and tissue around your eyes is incredibly thin and sensitive. When you wipe and smear off your makeup, you’re stretching and damaging the tissue around the eyes, which can lead to the diminishment of their appearance.

Because of this, it’s best to be gentle when removing your eye makeup. Use a soft sponge, cloth, or cotton ball to gently wipe away the makeup, and use oil-based products to make removing waterproof makeup easier and less stressful on the skin.
