Thanks to Clinique Pep Start Quick Cleansing Swipes I’ve discovered an entirely new way to prep my skin for skincare and makeup. What do I do? I prep my skin with facial wipes before I apply skincare or makeup.
I know! Sounds weird, possibly crazy but I actually love doing this.
I’ve recently discovered the new Yes to Miracle Oil 2-in-1 Cleaning + Moisturizing Facial Wipes as well as Clinique’s interesting Pep Start Quick Cleansing Swipes. I don’t technically use either wipe to clean my face. I do, however, use them as preps before my normal skincare and makeup. It sounds weird I know but if you have drier skin it works a treat at creating a smooth, soft surface for makeup.
After my shower in the morning, after I get dressed, it’s typically time to apply my skincare. Before I apply anything to my skin I take a wipe and swipe it across my face. I pay particularly attention to my cheeks which are driest. I’m really liking the Yes to Miracle Oil Wipes in particular lately as they are infused with Argan Oil. I can’t use facial oil on my face in the AM but this is a nice way to get a little bit of that hydration from Argan Oil on my face without leaving me greasy or shiny. The wipes act to create a very soft, smooth surface for my other skincare and makeup. They also remove any excess oil or perhaps any dirt left behind from my AM cleansing. I also find my SPF absorbs more easier when I use this method as well as my moisturizer and my skin looks and feels plush and bright after foundation is applied.
If you have drier skin I’d highly recommend purchasing a soft, hydrating wipe to use before your skincare and makeup application. Oily skin? No problem! Get a more mattifying wipe to use and it’ll swipe away any excess oil before you apply your skin. You’ll find using a wipe before skincare and makeup will result in smoother, softer skin plus your SPF/moisturizer will absorb more easily and your makeup with look more smooth and even!
Try it out!
