There are two kinds of facial cleansers, those that clean the skin and those that remove makeup. Be sure to remove makeup with a cleanser that contains a detergent designed to breakdown makeup. ■ Use a moisturizer or a cleanser that contains moisturizers. ■ Use a serum to hydrate your face and change the texture of your skin. Be aware that some of these target wrinkles. ■ You can go with the high-end cleansers or the bargain brands. Both will do the job. ■ Find the proper foundation to match your skin color so you don’t look made up. Have a friend give you a second opinion. ■ Makeup for work should be simple. You should be able to put it on in five minutes. Use foundation, powder, one shadow, eyeliner and lip gloss.
