If you’re like me, you use makeup removing wipes daily, and when used improperly, they can do more harm than good. There is an easy way to get the best clean — keep reading to see what it is.
When I have eyelash extensions, I don’t like to get them wet, so instead of traditionally washing my face, I use makeup removing wipes. I like the Simple Facial Wipes, because they are super gentle on sensitive skin and really work to remove makeup without harsh chemicals or artificial perfumes.
But instead of just rubbing a makeup wipe haphazardly all over your face, there is a technique you should be following.
Simple Advisory Board member and dermatologist Dr. Debra Luftman revealed: “It’s important to wipe your face starting from the forehead down to the jaw. Start on one side of your face, then flip the wipe over and repeat on the other side using medium pressure and a long downward motion. Always end on the nose as that is one of the oiliest parts of the face and you don’t want to redistribute oil all over your T-zone.”
Wipes aren’t just for removing makeup, they can also be used to prep skin for the day. Celebrity makeup artist Gita Bass, who has worked with stars like Selena Gomez, Emmy Rossum and Nina Dobrev says, “To nail the perfect bright matte lip with a no-crease finish, use a Simple Skincare Exfoliating Facial Wipe to exfoliate your lip and smooth it out before applying your lip color.”
The Simple brand is loved by social media star Jenn Im, and celebs like Ashley Benson and Allison Williams.
