Rag Makeup Remover?

New You Beauty Tip: Remove eye make up separately, and cleanse with disposable cotton pad to avoid spreading dirt and maintain flawless complexion.

We all know how important it is to remove our makeup before bed, right? But do not be fooled into thinking that wiping it off with a rag and water is the same as cleansing your face. Rags collect enough dirt and bacteria after a few uses, that they are neither practical nor effective to truly cleanse your skin.  First, remove any mascara and eye makeup with an eye remover.  Remember to wipe gently because the skin around the eyes is very delicate. For the rest of the face, take a cotton pad and moisten it with toner, a bit of water and a dab of cleanser.  Pay special attention to areas where makeup tends to collect, above and in the eyebrows and in creases around your nose and mouth. Don’t forget to wipe along the often abandoned areas, along your hairline and down past your jaw as well. Think of cleansing the same way you think of applying makeup; there is a right and a wrong way to do it.
