How to Remove Sunscreen From Face, Neck and Ears (Regular Cleanse + Double Cleansing Method)

In this video, you will learn how to remove sunscreen from your face, neck and ears.

Hi my name is vanessa van dijk and in today’s video i’m going to show you how you can properly remove your sunscreen if you have applied it to your face neck and even ears now i highly recommend doing this in the shower it is much more convenient less of a mess and you’re making sure that you can reach every area compared to if you would do this above the sink

Specifically if you’re trying to remove a mineral sunscreen that i’m currently wearing or even a water resistant or waterproof sound suites with regular sunscreens that are easily removable you can argue that you may be able to do this above the sink as well but overall i highly recommend doing this in the shower if you can do so now i want to share with you a

Little demonstration on how you kind of properly do this what cleansers you can use but before that i have prepared for you some powerpoint slides to give you some examples of what the combinations can look like to make sure that you’re able to properly remove it from the skin so first of all if you just want to work with one cleanser and you want to make sure that

That specific cleanser is able to remove any sunscreen that you may have at home i recommend working with an oil or balm cleanser those are usually applied on a dry skin and then you’re going to rinse it with water and an oil bomb cleanser is able to remove any sunscreen even mineral sunscreens and water resistant or waterproof sunscreens and to some extent makeup

As well so if that specific oil or balm cleanser does not leave a weird visit afterwards and you were able to properly get your sunscreen off the skin you haven’t missed any specific area you can just use your oil bomb cleanser on its own however if you have missed certain areas or you think well my oil bomb cleanser usually leaves a weird residue afterwards that i

Do not like based on the feeling on the skin surface i prefer to do a double cleanse well then you can go ahead and do so and a double cleanse refers usually to using it first an oil bomb cleanser as your first cleansing step and then you’re moving on to a water-based cleanser this can be a gentle cleanser for your specific skin type and so you can see the examples

Right here so then you would apply your oil balm cleanser on a dry skin rinsed off with water leave your skin wet and then move on to your regular cleanser and then apply it rinse it off and then there you have it or if you usually like to work with specific treatment cleansers exfoliating acid cleansers i highly recommend not applying those on your sunscreen but

Make sure that you can properly remove your sunscreen at first with oil bomb cleanser and then target your specific skin concern such as for example acne prone skin so that you’re not going to mix it with your sunscreen but you can really have the direct contact with your skin to really improve your issues and so there you have another example of how you can work

With it if you should have a treatment cleanser tone now at first i want to get started by just using an oil or balm cleanser and then later on i want to leave into the double clamp so that you can see both ways so i have two examples right here i have an oil cleanser right here which is the hadana oil cleansing this one is for example and like more liquidish

Version it has a pump so if you would use it use between one to two pumps which would be more or less about a coin size amount if you’re working with a bomb clamp that comes in a tube or maybe in a bigger jar like this this is the beauty of joe’s ingredients cleansing balm well then go ahead usually it comes with a spatula where you can grab a bit on the spatula

And then this should be enough for your face and neck but more or less you can say about a coin size amount this should be the amount to evenly cover it over your face neck and even ears so that you can effectively remove and break down the sunscreen from the skin now what i do want to emphasize is which is often very confusing specifically if you’re doing this in

The shower is you need to apply your oil or balm cleanser on a dry skin there are certain exceptions where they do say well you can apply to dry skin or wet skin if that’s the case i recommend trying out both ways and see what works like more effective for you however usually it does mention apply to dry skin and then later on rinse it off with water so if you’re

Going to apply to dry skin there are two ways on how you can do this if you’re going to include a shower as well the first one is you’re going to step into the shower take a fair amount of your oil balm cleanser apply to dry skin and message it all over and then later on you’re going to start off wetting your hair face and body to do the entire program however if

You’re usually someone as i usually forget myself to leave the skin dry because you want to work with your oil bomb cleanser if you’re already in the shower well then take your cleanser your oil balm cleanser outside the shower do this maybe above your mirror that you like remember yourself on while it needs to be applied to dry skin once you have messaged it all

Over then you can step into the shower and then start removing it from the skin using water so this way you’re making sure that you do not forget this essential step to apply to dry skin and so i’m going to use now this cleansing balm i’m going to take a fair amount more or less about that much so as i already mentioned it’s like a spatula full of balm cleanser

Usually with balm cleansers which you do not need to do with oil cleansers is because they have a like a stiffer texture you need to warm it up between your hands so it turns into kind of like an oil and then you’re going to message it all over your face and likewise if you work with an oil cleanser this isn’t necessary because it is already in a liquid form so

Take your time to message your oil bomb cleanser over your face and like you can even use it around your eyes just make sure to not get it into your eyes now into your mouth and i think the difficult part when it comes to if you have applied your sunscreen on your ears as well this would be the most difficult part to get it into every corner because the ears aren’t

Flat so make sure that you get it like everywhere around it and even in the ear itself like please do not put your finger in the ear but you know what i mean so please go around it specifically and take your time so once you have massaged it all over you now can go ahead and rinse it off with lukewarm water to warm water so it feels comfortable on the skin and

That you can properly remove the cleanser from the skin now i do want to emphasize that in between when just using one cleanser your oil balm cleanser when doing the double cleanse in between you can go ahead and use a soft and fresh washcloth those also referring to makeup clothes those are extremely soft on the skin and you can wet them and then in between i’m

Going to now rinse most of the oil cleanser off and then i’m going to wet the washcloth and this can help me to properly like remove the oil cleanser and even the sunscreen from the skin surface and it allows me to get around the eyes to get specifically between the ears so that i’m making sure that i’m able to properly take it off the skin now this is an optional

Step however i highly recommend it specifically if you’re wearing extremely stubborn sunscreen that do not easily remove from the skin when using a cleanser along with it and so now i’m going to wet my face i’m going to rinse everything properly off using the washcloth in between so if you not have properly rinsed off your sunscreen and your bomb or oil

Cleanser and you haven’t missed any area you know can go ahead and stop right here and of course wash the rest of your hair then your body and continue with your usual process and then once you’re done in the shower hop out of the shower and pat everything dry and there you have it however if you know should have still some residue left of your oil balm cleanser

Which sometimes can leave a weird film on the skin surface maybe you’ve missed certain areas of your sunscreen you now can go ahead and then move into the double cleanse which in that specific case if you’re not treating a specific concern you would move on to a gentle cleanser that’s suitable for your specific skin type now i have two examples right here one would

Be cerave hydrating cleanser for normal to dry skin or even cetaphil’s daily facial cleanser for combination to oily skin now i’m going to use acetaphiles cleansers it’s more suitable to my skin type and so in that specific case you’re going to leave the skin wet and then you’re going to apply your usual regular cleanser now onto wet skin and then again message

It all over your face and like rinse it off with lukewarm water and if you still should feel the need you can work with a soft and fresh washcloth in between just make sure that it’s a new one not the old one because on the old one we have the residue of your sunscreen and oil or balm cleanser so you want to make sure that you’re not using the same one otherwise

You’re going to add more to the skin rather than removing it when using a fresh one i use between one to two pumps about a coin size amount more or less and then start massaging it all over so now go ahead and rinse it off again with lukewarm water to warm water and if you like to use a soft and fresh washcloth in between so and once you have wins off

Everything you should be good to go there shouldn’t be a residue left of your sunscreen and nor any cleanser and then there you have it of course now if you would do the double cleanse then now would be the time to continue with your hair and body and then there you have it now i just want to keep my main focus to the face neck and ears where i have applied the

Sunscreen so i’m going to stop right here you saw both methods on how you can work with the different cleansers depending even on to your preference as well as how you can effectively remove it in the shower now i do hope that you enjoyed this video and that you liked it and if you did so please don’t forget to give the thumbs up as well as share it and if you now
