Face Paint Removal Tips

Everybody loves to have their faces painted, adults and children alike. But adults can be hesitant to be painted because they know the removal process can be tough! Here are a few tips for removing face paint gently and effectively:

My personal preferred method is to start with a baby wipe. If you start by splashing water on your face you’re going to create an incredible, smeary mess! Using a baby wipe, start from the outer edge of the design and wipe towards the middle of the design, with a lifting motion at the end. Fold your baby wipe and continue to wipe and lift paint off the face until you’ve removed most of the paint. Use more than one wipe if necessary!

Once most of the paint has been removed there are several directions you can go: cold cream, baby soap such as Johnson’s and Johnson’s, or baby oil. You know your skin, and your child’s skin, and what will work best for them. Some people have extremely sensitive skin and need something like Cetaphil – Cetaphil burns the heck out of eyes, tho, so be aware of your products! Choose what is safe for you, but be careful all the same!

Ponds makes an excellent, inexpensive cold cream that can be found in most grocery and drug stores. Once I have lifted off the majority of the paint I cover the area that was painted in cold cream! Doesn’t have to be much, a thin layer will do. Let it sit for 2-5 minutes, and using a soft washcloth or cotton pads, begin wiping and lifting the remaining paint residue off of your face. This is an extremely gentle method for paint removal.

Using a baby soap, simply wet and wash the face as usual, blotting dry with a washcloth and applying moisturizer as needed!

Baby oil is a last resort in my book! Apply as you would the cold cream, a thin layer over the painted area, and let it sit for a minute before using a cotton wipe or washcloth to wipe and lift the remaining paint from the face. However, after you’ve removed the paint you still need to wash your face! Baby oil leaves OIL all over the face! This can be an unpleasant feeling and can clog those sensitive pores.

So now you have no excuses! The next time you see a face paint artist get in line and enjoy yourself!
