The Routine

  1. I start by removing my makeup with makeup removal wipes. A few of my favorites are the Burt Bees cucumber wipes or Clinique’s wipes.
  2. Next, I slather my face with argan oil or Clinique makeup remover balm (my sweet friend Shandice put me on to this and it is While the oil is on my face I splash water on my face and rub it onto my face. This helps emulsify the oil and allows it to get the makeup worked off of my skin. I gently remove the oil/water with a washcloth. I have been loving microfiber washcloths because they are so gentle on the skin.
  3. After removing the oil, I cleanse with a gel cleanser (my fave). This helps removes any extra bits of makeup from my face.
  4. Once I’m done with these three steps I move on to my full evening skincare routine or I apply moisturizer and call it a night.
