Get All Your Makeup Off Before Bed: A How-To Guide

How to Properly Remove Your Makeup Before Bed

Surely by bedtime, the makeup you applied 12 hours ago has worn off? Wrong. Unless you got caught in a rainstorm or did some intense cardio, the same makeup is still on your face.

Though it’s not advised, we understand that sometimes you’re too tired to remove your makeup before bed. But if you must leave it on, how can you ensure that all of it comes off your face?

It’s important to take off your makeup before going to bed, and in this article we’ll show you how to do it quickly and easily.

Should You Even Bother Removing Your Makeup Before Going to Sleep?

Wearing makeup to bed is detrimental to your skin’s health. Your skin needs oxygen while you sleep, and it can’t get that with a layer of foundation on top. Additionally, most of your skin’s healing occurs at night, so it’s important not only to remove your makeup but also cleanse and treat your face before going to sleep.

If you go to bed with your makeup on, it can clog your pores, dry out your skin, and cause major damage. So even though forgetting to take off your makeup once in a while won’t hurt you too much, it’s important to do it regularly.

But I use natural products so I don’t have to worry about this issue? 

Wrong again! Even though natural and cleaner products are good for your skin, you should still wash them off before going to bed.

Unlike other makeup products, ours is made with natural and good ingredients. You also don’t have to worry about it harming your skin as you sleep.

Even if you use makeup that advertises itself as “clean,” the ingredients might not be what you expect. The cosmetics industry is largely under-regulated, which means companies can put whatever they want in their products without consequences. In fact, the term “clean” isn’t checked by any government organization for accuracy. So it’s time we take a stand and demand better regulation and ingredient transparency from the cosmetics industry!

You have to be your own advocate when it comes to making sure the ingredients in your products are clean, natural, and beneficial. 

That’s why we founded 100% Pure in 2004- to change the cosmetics industry for the better. We’re proud of our reputation as being leaders in providing some of the cleanest beauty products available on the market today.

What separates us from other cosmetics companies? We use living ingredients that are unprocessed and transparently list all our products’ ingredients.Ingredients in our natural state work best with your skin, but they should be removed before bedtime each night.

If you want to learn how to remove your makeup quickly, efficiently, and without any fuss, as well as give your skin the opportunity to repair and rejuvenate overnight, read on!

Begin By Removing Excess Makeup

At the end of a tiring day, all you want to do is go to sleep. However, before you drift off into dreamland, take one important step: wipe off your makeup with 100% Pure’s Konjac Sponge: Charcoal.

Consisting of only pure and organic coconut oil, these makeup remover wipes are free from any synthetic preservatives that usually come with ingredients like water. Not to mention, coconut oil has its own natural preservation system!

What makes our makeup wipes special? It’s the combination of gentle ingredients and effective cleansing agents that make them perfect for all skin types. Our wipes not only remove makeup, they also hydrate and nourish your skin, making it soft and supple. 

The star ingredient in our makeup remover is cold-pressed coconut oil, which has been proven to be an excellent natural moisturizer.

We use coconut oil because it is one of the healthiest oils on Earth. Lauric and caprylic acid levels are higher in this type of coconut oil than any others, second only to human breast milk. That’s right–Lauric and caprylic acid are known for their antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiviral properties . There’s no better way to remove makeup or cleanse skin!

Although coconut oil has many benefits, some people believe that it clogs the pores. This is only true for oils that have been processed incorrectly, exposed to heat, or altered in structure. However, we use pure, raw coconut oil that has never been exposed to heat, preserving all of its healing properties and antioxidants.

The minimalist approach to nighttime skincare is simply removing your makeup before bed. However, if you want to take better care of your skin’s health, investing a little more time into your routine each night can make a world of difference.

Additional steps that are considered part of a nightly skincare routine include things like exfoliating and using facial serums or masks. These extra measures will give your skin the TLC it needs to stay healthy and look its best.

Next, Wash Your Face

After you take your makeup off, it’s time to cleanse your skin. Makeup removal will get rid of the surface-level dirt and grime, but it’s important to go a little deeper and remove oil and impurities from your pores.

Virgin Coconut Moisturizing Milk Foam is a great option for this step because it has antibacterial and antifungal properties, which can help fight acne-causing bacteria. And yes—even people with acne-prone skin have seen positive results from using this! If you want a more structured cleansing routine, feel free to add an additional step with natural cleanser and toner products.

If you want a cleanser that will work well with your skin type, look for one that is made specifically for dry skin, oily skin, or combination skin. Or, go with a product like coconut oil that has benefits regardless of your complexion.

Not only is coconut oil great for your skin, but it also has a long list of benefits that promote healthy immunity and radiant, hydrated skin. Coconut oil contains high levels of lauric acid, which helps fight blemishes and provides ultimate hydration.

Use a Toner

If you want to focus on a particular skin issue, using a toner can help. Toners have come a long way since the 1990s, when they were often soaked in alcohol and could be quite harsh on the skin. 

Nowadays, many toners are alcohol-free and designed to either hydrate or exfoliate the skin. If you’re using a good cleanser like our Virgin Coconut Moisturizing Milk Foam, you will benefit from pairing it with our Fermented Rice Water Toner. 

Use a Serum 

One of the best products to use on your skin before bed is a serum. A serum is a highly concentrated liquid or oil that penetrates deeply into your skin, providing nutrients and restoration at a cellular level.

If you are searching for an all-in-one product to hydrate, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brighten, and smooth your complexion, 100% Pure’s Mushroom Peptide Serum may be what you have been looking for.

Our top-notch serum teaming up with a varying mixture of oils and adaptogenic herbs provides you with the “beauty sleep in a bottle” that leaves you feeling refreshed and looking radiant. Adaptogens have the power to normalize skin conditions which makes for healthy and glowing skin.

Spot Treatment

Normally, sleeping with your makeup on will result in more blemishes. If you’ve got a big one that just won’t go away, we recommend spot treating it before bed. 

The next time you’re looking for a bit of overnight blemish relief, try dabbing on some Tea Tree Concentrated Spot Treatment.

Eye Cream 

If you don’t remove your makeup before going to bed, it can cause the skin around your eyes to dry out overnight. This is one of the leading causes of fine lines and wrinkles. Proper cleansing and removal of makeup is essential for preventing aging skin. We recommend using 100% Pure’s Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream before bed as it has been proven to help in the appearance of dry skin, circulation and discoloration for aging under the eye.


Don’t forget to moisturize your skin before bed! Not only will this help the skin restore and repair overnight, but it’s also essential for keeping your body clean and healthy.

If you want even more biologically active ingredients that support your skin’s natural functions, we recommend our Seaberry Moisturizer. It applies smoothly and penetrates deep so you wake up with soft and hydrated skin.

Face Oil 

End your nightly skincare ritual by invigorating your skin with a few drops of our Multi-Vitamin + Antioxidants PM Facial Oil. Formulated with only the finest organic ingredients, this potent blend is suitable for every skin type and provides long-lasting hydration while also helping to improve overall texture and tone. In addition, adaptogenic herbs help to balance, oxygenate and improve circulation in the skin.

Did you know that our hydrating oil can not only be used as a moisturizer, but also as a primer for your makeup? All you need is a minimal amount to create a smooth canvas for your foundation and other makeup products. Not to mention, it will help keep your skin looking young and hydrated all day long!

Tips to Close on a Good Note

Although it may take some time to get used to, removing your makeup and following a skincare routine will do wonders for your skin. Depending on what your skin needs, your nighttime routine might vary from the above suggestions.

The most important thing to take away from this is that it’s crucial to remove your makeup every single night. Luckily, there are great all-in-one products like 100% Pure’s Konjac Sponge: Charcoal which makes the process quick and easy, and also doubles as a moisturizer. If you’re too tired at the end of the day to finish your entire skincare routine, these wipes will help you cover all your bases. 

Remember that you can always add water to the wipes for a more traditional application if you prefer. We have not added water into the actual wipes in order to avoid requiring chemical preservatives that would be necessary in a water-based product.
