If you want to wake up with a fresh face, removing all of your makeup is a must.  No matter how much makeup you’re wearing,  or how exhausted you may be,  the extra five minutes to remove your makeup can work wonders.  Leaving on makeup clogs your pores, and prevents your skin from renewing when you sleep.  With a jar of cotton balls and one of these makeup removers on your bathroom countertop, you won’t forget this ritual.

Also, after washing your face, apply a facial toner that makes your skin happy. Using a toner is just another way to rid your skin of any extra oil, dirt, or makeup. With a few drops of these facial toners on a cotton pad, you can say goodbye to breakouts and acne.
