Facial tissues are typically used to wipe or clean a runny nose, however, tissues have many other different uses: they can be used to refresh the skin, help wipe away tears – be they happy or sad, and will help repair that smudged mascara or eyeliner that might have turned runny as a result. Facial tissues are also the secret weapon to help your makeup last longer throughout the day.
5 Facial Tissue tips to include in your beauty routine:
Drying your face:
Contrary to popular belief, wiping your face using a cloth or towel can cause more damage than good. You may cause irritation to the skin, causing pimples or other unwanted reactions. Try drying your face with a facial tissue by placing the tissue on your face and allowing it to absorb the water. After doing this you can apply your facial products and sunscreen.
Longer lip Application:
Want your lip colour to last longer? Apply your favourite lipstick, take a tissue from your pack, hold and press it between your lips and follow this with a second coat of lipstick.
Oil Blocking/ Skin Cleansing:
Leaving home with a lovely mattified face is amazing, until a few hours later when you realise you have oily skin, especially on your T-Zone. This can be frustrating if you don’t have your pocket tissues in hand. Gently press a facial tissue against your skin to remove excess oil and continue enjoying a matt, clean and non-greasy face.
Tissue for eyes:
Creating smokey eyes can sometimes be a messy task where you must deal with eyeshadow falling onto your set face. Avoid the mess by placing a facial tissue by your cheekbone area, allowing the tissue to collect any fallen eyeshadow.
Facial tissues are perfect for when those unexpected moments creep up at the worst possible times; the runny noses, paper cuts, unnecessary juice spills and makeup smudges. These are moments you don’t need; however, you can trust Kleenex® to provide you with an everyday essential and to leave you feeling fresh to carry on with your day.
