The saying goes… eyes being the window to our soul…
Always take special care to completely remove the makeup around our eyes. Why?
Residual eye shadow or mascara pigments can lead to our dreadful formations of dull skin and wrinkles! Neglecting this essential step on our face can add a decade or two to your present age – even if you’re only in your twenties.
No matter what your age, start using a good quality eye-makeup remover, and use it now – And don’t whine about adding a new product to your beauty regimen. We are talking about our eyes and crows feet and other wrinkles are not easily hidden. Remember to use non-oily remover as this may also cause oil seed to form around our eyes.
Use proper eye make up remover before your skincare regimen.

Face serums can give you added moisture, the main reason you’d want to use a facial serum is to get added nutrients into deeper layers of your skin that a regular moisturizer is not able to reach. You can get many types of serums such as anti-aging serums, skin brightening serums and even acne preventative serums.
Face moisturiser has larger molecules than a serum. This means that a moisturizer will not penetrate the skin as far as a serum will. While serums deposit nutrients, moisturizers are meant to deposit moisture and hydration your skin.
