Don't Forget to Take it Off

I am prone to breakouts and the last time I went for a facial my esthetician explained that it is absolutely imperative that you fully remove makeup before using scrubs, creams or facial treatments. Many people use a face wash that has micro-beads to wash their makeup off, but she said if you use a scrub before fully removing your makeup/dirt/oil, all you are doing is grinding that makeup/dirt/oil into your pores, clogging them and causing breakouts. She suggests using a makeup remover first, then using the scrub. By doing it this way you are able to see the full benefits of your creams and/or acne treatments. You can use any makeup remover to do this. I like Neutrogena Make-Up Remover, Cleansing Towelettes.
