Please DO NOT SCRUB those little faces. There are several ways to remove face paint with very little effort or discomfort.
Use gentle soap like no-tears baby shampoo or face wash and work into a rich lather ( white suds ) on a soft wash cloth. Gently rub in small circular motions over painted area avoiding the eye area. After a minute or two gently wipe off soapy mess and rinse with warm water.
Another method is to use a mild liquid soap and make a paste with the paint. Simply put soap on painted area and gently rub in small circular motions all over for a few minutes. Let the 'mess' set for 30 to 60 seconds befor you wipe it off with a warm wash cloth, then rinse.
Baby oil on a cotton ball will take off the paint but you may go through alot of cotton balls if a large area is painted. You could also use virgin coconut oil or olive oil.
Paint that is close to the eyes can be removed with make up remover on a q-tip. Vaseline can be used as well.
If there is still color on the skin after washing it is not a reaction to the paint, it's just some lingering pigment. Not to worry! Simply apply a mild moisturising lotion or coconut oil to the area and wipe off after 10 minutes.
