Always invest in a good facial cleanser which is good for removing foundation and lipstick
Cleanse your skin gently
Avoid scrubbing your skin with a wash cloth but splash your skin with warm water. This helps to open skin pores. Then massage your skin with a facial cleanser using your fingers using your fingertips in a circular motion. After cleaning your skin, rinse it with cold water, pat it dry and apply cream.
People with acne should frequently wash their skins to remove excess oils that results in breakouts.
