Wash your face with lukewarm water and a cream cleanser.
You always want to use warm water as it helps lift the dirt out of your skin.
But be sure to stay away from hot water as it can be too drying on the skin.
In terms of cream cleansers, these are more hydrating.
However, if you tend to pile on the makeup, you’re going to want to opt for a gel cleanser and/or a makeup remover instead.
After washing your face, dab (do NOT rub) your skin with a towel.
If you’re asking “why?”
Rubbing instead of dabbing will cause your skin to stretch and can ultimately lead to wrinkles. 🙁
Dip a cotton ball in toner and swipe it around your face.
Use the cotton ball/toner combo to focus mainly on problem areas.
So, if you have an oily t-zone, you’ll want to focus your toner in that area.
Note: You don’t need a lot! One soaked cotton ball is more than enough.
Mix your serum with your moisturizer.
This is especially great for your night routine because it makes your moisturizer heavier.
Don’t forget your eye cream!
The under eye area is the thinnest in terms of skin, so you’ll want to apply generous amounts of cream here.
Be sure to massage or pat a small amount of eye cream under your eyes and right under your brow bone.
If you plan on applying makeup afterwards, wait a few minutes so the cream can sink in.
