Face wipes are cheap, make them your friend! You don’t need to spend too much to buy that! First, this is a very important step, wipe off makeup with at most 4-5 face wipes. Make sure your eye brows, eye shadow and all are wiped off completely! Wiping alone won’t remove all of it, especially those in your pores, so after you wipe, you wash your face with a mild face wash or soap while bathing, use your cleanser, then your toner. After these, you’re ready for a good night sleep. You might decide to use moisturiser or better still sleep like that.
