Face Wipes For Your Skin Type

Long before I picked up my Grandmother Annie Ruth's nightly beauty regimen, I relied heavily on facial wipes. They've literally helped me save face when I can't muster up enough energy to stand in my bathroom and wash away bronzer, lipstick and mascara. Dr. Paul Friedman, director of The Dermatology & Laser Surgery Center in Houston, Texas, uses facial wipe in his offices on a daily basis and recommends packing them in your gym bag for post-workout use. We'd also like to point out that they're life-changing in the sweaty summer.

Still, Friedman cautions that there are a few key skin care tips we all should keep in mind when swiping away everyday dirt and grime:

• Make sure you read the directions as facial wipes are made differently. Some require you to first saturate in water, some require you to rinse with water after you cleanse and others you are able to just wipe and go.

• It is important not to scrub too hard with these wipes as it may irritate the skin.

• Always look for oil-free products. Alcohol ingredients such as menthol are irritating and should be avoided. However, those containing salicylic and glycolic acids are great for exfoliating acne-prone skin.

• Wash with a gentle cleanser and water when possible because it is a more thorough cleanse. Use the cleansing cloths on the go or when necessary. Don’t rely on them for your everyday cleanser.
