So It Turns Out There's A 'Proper' Way To Use A Make Up Wipe


So It Turns Out There's A 'Proper' Way To Use A Make Up Wipe

I try to wash my face every night, but when I've had one too many vinos or generally can't be bothered, a make-up wipe is my go to gadget. But little did I know that I could actually be doing more harm than good by just wiping my face willy-nilly.

So, I used the powers of the internet to do a little research, and it turns out there is a 'correct' way to use a wipe. Who knew?


Debra Luftman M.D. spoke to InStyle and she explains that there's a certain order to which parts of your face you should wipe first.

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.

The Simple Skincare consultant continued:

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

Dermatologist Ranella Hirsch also recommends using quite a wetter or creamier type of wipe, and leaving it on your face for a moment for it to work its magic, then rubbing it back and forth. Speaking to Allure, she explains:

Wipes get a bad rap, but it's not the wipes, it's the fact that nobody is using them properly. People just swipe superfast. You need to allow what's impregnated into the wipe to do its work.

She also says that splashing your face isn't a bad idea either, but isn't necessary. So there you have it - some top tips for lazy girl make up removal.
