Are You Really Removing All of Your Makeup?
If you're waking up with raccoon eyes or lipstick smear, discover the best ways to keep your makeup from crawling into bed with you
If you've noticed dryer lips, flakiness and chapped skin, ditch the paper products and use your fingers. Lip glosses are hydrophobic (they hate water), so skip splashing your face over the sink and use dry fingertips to apply an oil-based product, like Murad's Renewing Cleansing Oil, $32, and Boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil, $28, to your glossy lips. Then, rub the product gently in a circular motion with your ring finger (the most gentle of fingers) for 30-60 seconds. "The idea is to remove product, not stretch your skin," says King, reminding us of just one of the many ways your fingers come in handy in a makeup routine.
