If I ever hear someone say "I sleep with my makeup on" or "I forgot to wash my face before bed" I turn into a maniac! That is probably the worst thing you can do your skin and it really breaks my heart LOL At the very least, you can use a makeup wipe but even the best ones can't get Waterproof mascara or Waterproof foundation off so just take 5 minutes before bed to do it the right way. This is the best way to maintain flawless skin, prevent clogged pores, uneven textures and pimples.
My Personal Favorites:
The Sephora Waterproof eye makeup remover ($7.00-14.00) gets the job done and does not break the bank. I purchase cotton rounds in bulk from Costco ($12.99) but you can purchase these anywhere. These are perfect for eye makeup removal as well as cleansing oil to break down the rest of the makeup on the face (not eyes). I really love this one from The Body Shop ($21.00) but there are other great alternatives like this, this & this.
Now that you have "melted" away the makeup, it's time to ensure that we remove all product with a cleanser. The LHA Cleansing Gel ($40.00) from SkinCeuticals does not leave a residue and your skin like others you find at the drugstore. The Luxury Flannel Facial Washcloth ($6.50) from The Body Shop is extrememly soft and gentle for your face. Then you can proceed with serums and/or moisturizers!
