Hey beauties! When you cleanse your face, are you getting all of the dirt and gunk off?! Wait, you DO wipe your makeup off after a long day? OR after a long night out with the girl’s right?! Ok great! Read on to make sure you are getting your skin TRULY clean.
1. Cleanse Day AND Night
Washing your face in the morning is refreshing and wakes you up. But don’t forget to wash the day off of your face. The air is filled with dirt, oils, allergens and free radicals. Your skin is like a little rag that collects all of that! So be sure to wash it off.
2. Ditch the Face Wipes
While Face Wipes are very convenient in a time crunch, when possible, you should be cleansing with your face cleanser and warm water. Face Wipes don’t really cleanse the face but rather wipe the surface of your skin. Be sure to get a deeper clean by simply washing your face. Feel free to use face wipes to wipe off makeup, especially your waterproof makeup. Sometimes I opt for micellar water which helps wipes my face from makeup and then I do my cleansing routine.
3. Use a Toner
Toner completes the cleansing process. It finishes removing any left over product on your skin and rebalancing your skin’s pH after cleansing.
4. Exfoliate (1-2 weekly)
Exfoliating your face 1-2 times per week removes dry/dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. Other benefits include increased blood circulation and that inner glow!
