Removing your make-up can be a delicate job.

WHETHER it's lipstick, mascara, eye shadow or foundation, each item should be removed with its own technique and special regime.

Su-Man Skincare was launched in 2011 with a range of luxury skincare products that aim to bring life and energy back to the face.

The collection is sold in Urban Retreat, Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason and Fenwicks and is used by celebrities such as Kylie Minogue, Juliette Binoche and Olga Kurylenko.

Su-Man, who has been dubbed the woman with "the wisdom of 10,000 faces", regularly shares her skincare tips and techniques - this time explaining how to properly remove make-up using the popular Purifying Cleansing Gel-Oil.

She said: "The act of removing your make-up should be given as much thought and care as applying it. Being too vigorous removing make-up can do more harm than good, often creating more lines and wrinkles.

"These are my tips on how to properly remove your make-up without causing any distress to your skin. Always begin with the smallest areas of your face, like your eyes and lips, as the skin in these areas are the most delicate and require a gentle hand."

LIPSTICK Wet the cotton pads with warm water, squeeze the cleanser on to the pad and spread evenly. Press on to lips for a few seconds then with firm strokes, wipe away the lipstick or lip-gloss. MASCARA Wet cotton pads with warm water, squeeze the cleanser on to the pad and spread evenly. Fold the pad in half and gently brush over the lashes using upward and downward motion. This ensures you remove any mascara stuck in-between and on the base of your lashes. EYE MAKE-UP Follow the same procedure with the cotton pads as you would with mascara. Place them firmly on the eyes, and use a gentle vibrating motion to loosen and remove any eye make-up. Face Distribute a fingertip-sized amount of cleanser into your palm and spread evenly over your face. Massage the cleanser on to your face and neck using firm circular motions. Don't forget to pay attention to make-up that has been trapped in your eyebrows or hairline. Wipe cleanser off with a damp face cloth or cotton pads. Repeat the process and rinse off with warm water. Pat your skin dry with a dry face cloth.
