Learn to avoid these beauty mistakes when cleansing

Putting on makeup is fun, but taking it off can be a chore. And, if it isn't done properly, your skin will suffer the consequences. While skin doesn't actually breathe, it will have a healthy glow if you care for it properly each day.

Makeup wipes are a good investment, but they can't really cut through foundation or lipstick on their own. The following videos will help you avoid common makeup removal mistakes while keeping your skin in tip-top shape.
