About the Expert
Hi, my name is Ana, and I'm a makeup artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to properly wash your face with an anti-aging cleanser. I'm going to use an anti-aging cleanser and some water. The first step is to dampen the face. So, taking lukewarm water, using your hands, dampen your face. Once your face is damp take a small amount of the cleanser. I'm using a cleanser that has tiny little beads in it. This is going to help to exfoliate my skin and help with skin renewal. You want to make sure that you use a cleanser that isn't going to be too astringent on the skin. You don't want it to strip your skin of moisture. You want it to be emollient. In a circular motion, rub the cleanser into the skin. And you just want to massage the face until you see all the makeup being lifted. And you want to be really gentle with the skin; you don't want to rub it too harsh. It will turn red or you could damage the skin. So, you just want to gently do small circles all over the face. Another area of the skin that you want to be really careful around is the orbital bone. Around this area of the skin it's very thin and very gentle, so you want to make sure that you don't rub it too harsh. When you are using a cleanser with tiny little beads in it, avoid the eye area. You'll have to use makeup remover for that. Once you feel that the makeup has been removed, go ahead and wash the face. Taking a towel or a cloth, you want to pat dry the skin. You don't want to rub the skin, 'cause that will be too abrasive. Follow up by using an anti-aging moisturizer and anti-aging eye cream, and a little bit of sunscreen all over the face. Make sure to wash the face, morning and night. Thanks for watching.
