This is a quick, five-step guide to help you make sure your face is clean:

Use a cleaning oil or makeup remover.

Apply a mild cleanser or makeup remover to your face directly or with a cotton pad.
Concentrating on the areas with a lot of makeup, gently wipe your face, lips, and eyes.
The purpose of these items is to dissolve and break down makeup so that it can be removed more easily.

Wash your face gently to cleanse.


Apply some lukewarm water to your face.
Use a dime-sized amount of your skin type’s recommended mild cleanser on your face.
Make sure you massage every part of your face, covering it with gentle circular motions.
Use lukewarm water to completely rinse, then pat dry with a fresh towel.

Micellar water should be used (optional).

Soak a cotton pad in micellar water to remove any remaining residue or if you want to go one step further in your cleaning routine.
Wipe your face gently. Any remaining remnants of pollutants and cosmetics can be removed with the aid of micellar water.

A couple of times a week, exfoliate:

Exfoliation guarantees a deeper clean and aids in the removal of dead skin cells.
Select a mild exfoliant based on the kind of skin on your body.
Apply using soft circular motions, paying particular attention to buildup-prone areas such as the chin and nose.
Use mildly warm water to rinse.
