Life is full of everyday performances, now so more than ever with the holidays coming up. To look and feel my performance best, I put on a full face of makeup daily. From foundation, bronzer, blush, longwearing liners lipstick and more, all of this makeup and "performing" in it takes its toll on my skin. One of the most important things I can to to my skin is to remove my makeup at the end of the day. I have long depended on POND'S to wipe away the day.

Get Clean with POND'S Luminous Clean Cleansers.

Did you know that over 40% of women do not remove their makeup or wash their face before going to bed? Out of those that do, more than half use just regular soap and water. Gross! Really, there is no reason to neglect your skin and not properly cleanse your face as you wind down the day. Look at this very telling infographic.

POND'S Luminous Clean Cleansers

Especially when there are so many great products like POND'S new Luminous Clean Cleansers at the ready, there is no excuse not to go to bed with clean skin. The new line up of cleansers from POND'S will have you doing just that and wash away your makeup, the days' dirt and more to help reveal bright and luminous skin. The cleansers are enriched with soft white Kaolin clay, a natural mineral known to act like a magnet to gently draw out deep-dwelling impurities so skin will be fresh and clean. Plus, moisturizing ingredients such as Glycerin which draws moisture from the environment, leaves skin feeling soft and smooth. All you have to do is pick which cleanser is right for you.

POND'S Luminous Clean Cleansers

I am actually using a combination of all three products, because well, that is just how particular I am about cleansing my face at night. I use the Wet Cleansing Towelettes at night to remove my makeup and then wash with either the Cream Cleanser or Exfoliating Cleanser, depending on how much washing I feel my face needs that night. The POND'S Original Wet Cleansing Towelettes have been my go-to for years now, because my makeup is removed so quickly and easily with just one cloth. Dare I say I like these even more? The cloths feel softer on my skin and actually get my makeup off easier than before.

To get the important point of washing your face before bed POND’S has teamed up with modern etiquette expert Anna Post, the great-great granddaughter of Emily Post. Anna’s philosophy: "it’s important for a woman to look and feel her best in order to put her best face forward – and that starts with taking proper care of her skin." I second that. If there is one thing that I have learned over the years, it is that beautiful makeup begins with beautiful skin.
