How To Remove Face Paint:

•Wet a dark colored washcloth & add mild soap or baby shampoo (baby wipes are less likely to remove residue).

•Gently scrub design until skin is clean, then wash with water & washcloth.

•If any stains remain, apply oil or moisturizer to skin & wash off half an hour later. The moisturizer should absorb the stain.

•Don't leave face paint on overnight as it is likely to stain skin, bedding, or clothes.
