Here are some easy steps to take and if you follow them religiously, you just might be the new flawless chic on the block.
Removing Previous Makeup
Removing your makeup before bed cannot be over emphasised. This step is one you must never forget or take for granted. The reason is taking off your makeup before bed gives your skin a while to breathe. The (Facial) skin is very delicate, and the extra amount of care we give will determine if it will listen and cooperate with us. Overdue makeup ruins the skin so do not forget to take off your makeup preferably with a facial wipe.
Wash Your Face
Washing your face is the second step to take, after cleaning your face with a facial wipe. Ensure to wash out any extra makeup which the wipes didn’t take off.

Use Dermatologist Recommended Facial Cleanser

So why don’t you save yourself the stress of taking countless trips to the supermarket and pay that one visit to the dermatologist who will decide what cleanser will do the job for you?
Use Recommended Cream or Lotions for Ache or Pimples

If you can, try to book a facial appointment at least once a month. This also helps with the entire flawless process.
