But, you could be using them the wrong way.  We’ve compiled tips on how to get the most out of your face wipes.

Be gentle

Removing make-up is a daunting task but it has to be done. However, this is one of the common reasons why most women rush through the process, but do take care. Harshly rubbing off your make-up can cause irritation and redness, so, take your time and be gentle when taking down your face-beat.

Practice double cleansing

Wipes alone aren’t enough to get rid of all the product build- up, so you always need to double cleanse. Once you’ve removed all your make-up, follow up with a cleanser to remove any hidden traces of make-up, leaving your skin squeaky-clean. 

Start from the forehead

A consultant for Simple Skincare’s Dr. Debra Luftman told Instyle magazine that, when using wipes, it’s important to start from the forehead and work towards your jawline. Doing this will help you prevent redistributing bacteria on your face and causing breakouts.

Pay attention to your eyes

Eye make-up is generally hard to get rid of, as it dries out during the day. Start with an eye make-up remover and always use a separate wipe for your eyes. Jumping straight into wipes might rip out your eyelashes.

Don’t forget to moisturise

Retaining moisture in your skin is key to how it will look and feel in the end. Always moisturise your skin, regardless of the packet promises that it’s a 3-in-1 wipe. Besides, there’s no such thing as being too moisturised.
