All about Waterproof Makeup
Have you ever had to keep checking your reflection as you pass glass walls or mirrored surfaces? Always wondering if your kajal is smudged or if the sudden rain shower has your face looking patchy? The time you spent on perfecting your makeup comes to nought as humidity checks in and leaves you with a washed-out pale look and raccoon eyes. With the beauty industry evolved for all probabilities, you can be sure that Waterproof makeup is one such brilliant breakthrough. Makeup that lasts through sweat, oil and is water resistant is known as Waterproof makeup. Used when you want long lasting makeup.
Waterproof makeup contains special ingredients to block out water. It is recommended to opt for lighter products that allow your skin to breathe rather than pore clogging harsh products which may induce rash breakout.
Ideal in this case is products with polymers like Acrylates Copolymer and Isododecan
An essential ingredient found in most makeup, polymers are molecules that form a film to give beauty products long lasting wear. Polymers are very safe. They dissolve and evaporate, making the makeup water and oil resistant. For e.g. The polymer content in mascara, prevents it from smudging or flaking. Check products with polymers like Acrylates Copolymer and Isododecane, ingredients that can waterproof your makeup without harming your skin.

Dos and Don’ts :
1. Invest in a proper makeup remover
Always use quality makeup removers for Waterproof makeup. Opt for Oil Free Cleansers or those designed for water proof beauty products as your regular makeup removers may be mild.
2. Waterproof Makeup Is NOT for every day. Usage of strong ingredients in waterproof products like foundation or mascara may pose harm to your skin if used frequently.
3. Go for a Setting Spray which is waterproof specific as an easy alternative.
4. Always buy quality, waterproof makeup products for a long lasting with minimum retouch.
5. Look for products that contain acrylates copolymer, isododecane and mildly silicone.
Remember waterproof makeup may be a lot stronger than normal makeup, but it is considerably safe. Just be sure to remove your makeup before the day ends to keep your skin healthy and hydrated.
You can confidently step out in rain or sunshine! Enjoy the outdoors once it is safe to do so.
