Several companies offer misters fixing makeup. We would use at this stage, ie at the end.





It is essential to remove makeup before going to bed for the night, the skin goes into a regeneration phase and this is where it will need good nutrients. Makeup leaves a residue on the skin that may cause pimples and / or blackheads. Even if it is three o’clock in the morning, if you do not have 5 minutes for your evening routine, I suggest you obtain pre-soaked wipes cleansing. There is a wide variety on the market. You can even facial once in your bed! Now you’ll have no excuses …

C. Cleansing gel or foam

These products require a water rinse.

Those little face makeup can settle this stage (without going through the cleansing cream or milk), but those who use foundation and correctors should always step A.

The reverse can also be done if there is very little makeup, especially for those who have dry or sensitive skin, that is to say, we will steps A and B, then skip to Step D to the tonic.

D. Tonic

The tonic will remove any residue that may have survived the cleansing and prepares the skin to receive the best night cream.
