Skin Care Tip of the Week *A Great Beauty Essential*

Monday, November 7, 2011



Cleansing facial wipes are one of my favorite beauty essentials.

I always remind my clients that wearing makeup to the gym is one of the worst things you can do. Yes I am aware that when you have an ugly zit you want to cover it up, but in the long run you are doing more harm than good. While you sweat your pores open and you are inviting bacteria and makeup to seep in.

Since washing your face pre-workout is not always on the top of everyone's priority list, facial wipes can solve that problem.

Not only are cleansing facial wipes quick and easy to use but they also effectively remove dirt and makeup.

They are the perfect solution to clean skin if you don't have time to wash your face before bed. I keep a pack in my gym bag, the car and on my bathroom sink.

A couple brands that I really like and recommend are: Korres Pomegranate Cleansing Wipes and Ole Henriksen Truth To Go Wipes.

I love using facial wipes! They're so fast and easy - great to have on hand! I don't usually wear makeup when I'm working out, at least I'm doing something right for my skin! :)

Lindsay said...

You know, I have never used facial wipes, I was worried my face would get dried out. I am definitely going to pick some up though! I bet it actually gets your face more clean! Thanks for the tip Linds!

This is a great tip Lindsay. I just picked up some cucumber facial wipes, called Yes to Cucumbers. Have you heard of that brand? They are supposedly all natural.

I'm guilty on not washing my face before working out...I know it's bad!! Thanks for the recommendations though I do buy face wipes for travel and love to hear what brands work well.

Melissa Blake said...

That is awesome -- I'm guilty of sometimes not washing my face before I go to bed. Sometimes all I want to do is jump into bed!

hello...I bet they smell good too!

Sarah said...

Ooooh I love this. I could totally use this right about now. Sometimes I'm just so not in the mood to scrub and rinse at night. All I want to do is lightly remove my makeup with ease.

I can't imagine no foundation at the gym. My skin is pretty bad with acne scars, dark circles, the works! The vitamin c has been working wonders though!! Maybe someday I'll get to be makeup free!

Chelsea said...

Ah I'm so guilty about not washing my face first... thanks for the tips!

Tabitha Lynn said...

Buying these! Thank you! how's baby 2!!

Terry said...

I love these. I am often too lazy to do the whole facewash routine before bed but I will always take a second to use these wipes. I can walk around and do other things (like check that all the doors are locked) and be removing my makeup. Love them.

Hilliary@ Happily Ever Healthy said...

Great tip! I need to update my skin care routine! Thanks for all the wonderful tips!

Traci @ The Traci Chronicles said...

I'm guilty of this but not on purpose. I go straight from work to my Yoglates class & still barely make it on time. Wipes are the perfect solution for me but I'd never thought about it. Thanks for the tip!

Meg {henninglove} said...

i will have to try these and always keep a pack nearby because some days i have those times when i just need to take my makeup off and crawl into bed. definitely never ever go to bed with makeup still on

Andrea @ Strawberry Chic said...

I am totally the type to not remember to wash my face before working out...thanks for the tip!

Torie said...

Korres is such a good brand, I love their lip butters. I should buy a pack, I'm awful at taking makeup off before I work out (then again, I'm also pretty awful at working out...)

Makeup wipes are quite possibly one of the best inventions ever! Personally, I like the double-duty ones - the wipes that remove makeup AND clean your face. How convenient is that?

Usually, on a non-lazy day, I'll remove makeup with a baby oil/baby shampoo/water mixture. Works perfectly!

They are the best! I have a pack of these at home and I use them a lot on the weekends. They are just quick and easy to use.

i am often on the hunt for the perfect face wipes... as much as i don't want to, i'll just admit it...there are some nights {the ones that follow exhausting days} that i just can't be bothered to wash my face...so thank goodness for these little genius creations! i will be on the lookout for these brands! xoxoxo brynn
