You’ve Been Using Face Wipes Wrong This Whole Time

I LOVE my face wipes. 

If you love your mascara like I do, facial cleansers just don't do the trick and always leave me looking like a Panda. 

After a night out, coming home to a shower and face wipes ALWAYS leaves me looking super fresh the next morning. 

However, it turns out there's actually a right and wrong way to cleanse your face using skincare wipes and it's likely you've been using them incorrectly all this time! 

Beverly Hills based dermatologist Debra Luftman told InStyle "It's important to use your wipe from the forehead down to the jaw, so that you don't end up redistributing oil and bacteria around your face and causing breakouts." 

Dr Luftman also recommended leaving the worst areas til last. 

"Finish wiping at your nose, as it's one of the grimiest parts of the face." 

Well, thanks for the tip Doc! I'll be leaving the eyes til VERY last then!
