Even if a daily routine does not involve makeup, once the skin hits the air environmental stressors like sun, toxins and pollution can create major skin problems including uneven pigmentation, disrupted skin texture and dull tone. Because skincare products just like makeup are designed to absorb and cling to the skin for longterm efficacy, even those who do not wear makeup should be advised in proper purifying methods. Doing a pre-cleanse especially for makeup days means refreshed skin and major luminosity.

Simply doing a first removal of complexion, eye makeup and sunscreen can make a world of difference in the overall appearance of skin.

Most cleansers break down oils, makeup residue and grime inside pores but sensitive areas like then nose and eyes are commonly missed when it comes to deep cleansing. Often, impurities left in the crevices of the nose can turn into clogged pores which are difficult to reverse. Eye makeup is notoriously a struggle to completely remove due to the nature of ingredients used to withstand tears, watery eyes and blinking.

Doing a pre-cleanse is a simple but effective way to wake up without raccoon eyes or even worse layering makeup on top of last night’s makeup!
