WHY ALL MAKE-UP ARTIST USES IT?
We asked a hair and makeup artist, Jessica Lee to give us her top tips when it comes to making the most of your facial cleansing routine.
Jessica Lee used to suffer from allergic and dry skin during her busy casting and examination period.
She then went and find out what are the important steps to perform double cleansing on her face.
Why is it important to remove makeup thoroughly?
Throughout the day, oil and sweat can accumulate on your skin, which is why it is important to cleanse your face every evening -- even if you don't wear makeup.
While it is tempting to forgo your nightly facial cleansing after a big night, leaving makeup on overnight can lead to clogged pores as well as eye irritation.
' I used to find all skincare which states that they are organic, natural or whatever. However, somehow those are not effective at all but only caused my skin to worsen day by day.'
While makeup removers and facial cleansers are often used interchangeably, it is important to note that they aren't the same. Makeup removers generally contain oil, water, and a preservative in order to remove the layer of product on the skin, while cleansers specifically remove dirt, contaminants and oil from your face.
Finally Jessica Lee has found the best product for her sensitive skin.
' Makeup remover and normal cleanser is just not enough. '
Most of the deep cleansing face wash in the market is drying up my skin! She recommends Kiseki Japan marine collagen face wash which is made from all natural ingredients that
is very gentle for the skin.
Most dermatologists suggest using your fingers to rub the cleanser into your face with lukewarm water for around 20 - 30 seconds, before rinsing and following up with a hydrating moisturizer.
After cleansing, Jessica Lee applies toner, hydrating mask everyday ( it doesn't have to be an expensive mask), serum then moisturizer.
' It is important to always keep your skin hydrated after deep cleansing your skin. '
