Prepping your skin before applying makeup is an important step for multiple reasons. Wiping off the makeup is another important step that should be a must in your skincare routine. While the former set the base for applying the makeup, the latter cleanses the skin to set the base for the skincare regime. You will need a gentle makeup remover to remove all traces of makeup and impurities to reveal clean skin.

And, of course, having the correct makeup remover adds to the benefits that are much required in the skincare routine before and after makeup application.
Steps Before Applying Makeup
Here are some steps to follow to ensure your skin gets the right hydration and nourishment before you start applying the makeup. Start with a clean base, which includes cleansing using a gentle, hydrating face wash. Be careful to use a product that suits your skin type. For example, cream cleansers are ideal for dry skin, while gel or foam cleansers work well for oily skin. For sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts, look for ingredients like salicylic acid and tea tree oil.
You can in fact, start with using the gentle makeup remover before you start applying the makeup to ensure your skin is free from all accumulated dirt and grime. Once your skin is clean and fresh, it’s time to apply toner. Toners close pores and give your skin a tight, firm look. Opt for natural ingredients like rose water or witch hazel in the toners. Ensure the toner has completely dried before you move to the next step.
Dab a bit of face serum to give your skin a hydrated look. Then, follow up with a broad-spectrum sunscreen and let it get absorbed completely. This is your last step before you start with the application of makeup.
