Seriously though, applying makeup is great and all….but at the end of the day, please remember to TAKE IT OFF. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had people tell me that they “forget” to wash their face, or that they just sleep in their makeup. My thoughts on this? Please just take the extra few minutes to wash the day off of your face so your skin can breathe. Beauty starts with your skin….and NOT just what sits on top of it.
As far as cleansing, I have always promoted the double cleansing method. For me, it has always been more efficient in removing ALL of the makeup and environmental dirt from my skin over makeup removers. It’s literally as simple as it sounds. Wash your face twice.
My current cleansing obsession is a $7 (or less) cleanser followed by a cleansing exfoliator. Did you know that Boots (a UK based cosmetics/skincare company found at your local Target and Ulta) now has a botanics line? And….it’s super easy on your wallet? I’ve discovered their All Bright cleanser, and it’s SOOOOO good. And…..get this, it’s $7 or less!
The exfoliator that I am currently using as my 2nd wash is Clinique’s Pep Start 2 in 1 exfoliating cleanser. It has both the scrubbing beads (not overly abrasive) as well as a natural enzyme exfoliator that removes all the dead stuff from the surface of your skin. (Special thanks to my Sephora monthly Play box for discovering this gem.)
