Who needs water to have clean skin?!?
Damone Roberts’ revolutionary new skincare system is the first and only regimen solely in the form of a cloth facial wipe. AM•PM™ is expertly designed to cleanse and moisturize at the most important parts of your day, while being conveniently accessible for those on the go.
The system includes four individual products: AM1, AM2, PM1, and PM2. Each product has its own specific purpose within the regimen, and has been designed to prepare the skin for its optimal state.
AM1 is a water-based cleansing cloth for morning use that washes the face to a state of ultimate refreshment. It promotes the growth of elastin and collagen, reduces redness, puffiness and inflammation, while contributing to the soothing of damaged skin.
AM2 optimizes the face for an even skin porosity, while the toner treatment protects skin from free radicals, tightens, conditions, and helps to reduce dark under-eye circles. AM2 also nourishes the skin with nutrients while improving hydration.
PM1 is an all-natural makeup remover and toner facecloth that’s gentle enough for everyday use. It removes makeup and impurities from the face and eyes while helping to reduce puffiness, and aids in the prevention of bacteria and excess oils from forming on the skin.
PM2 is a night creme, moisturizing treatment facecloth, ideal for evening use, and after removing makeup with PM1. PM2 contains a complete treatment regime in just one cloth, while reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles and feathering. It also protects the skin from free radicals, tightens, conditions and hydrates.

When it comes to your beauty routine, it’s natural to pick up a bad habit or two. While it’s not the end of the world if you slip up once in a while, repeating the same mistakes over and over is considered poor hygiene and can potentially lead to skin irritations, eye infections or breakouts.
1. Sleeping with makeup on
Damone ALWAYS reminds you to “take off all of your makeup before you go to sleep”. Neglecting to remove your makeup before bedtime is a big beauty no-no. It clogs your pores and can cause acne breakouts. Plus, if you do it repeatedly, your skin can look dull over time due to product buildup.
To rectify this bad habit, he recommends that you hit the bathroom sink the moment you arrive home for the night, before you get too sleepy. "If you still can’t manage that, keep makeup remover wipes or even unscented baby wipes on your nightstand so you can do a quick wipe-off before you hit the sheets," he advises.
2. Using dirty makeup brushes
Think about all of the surfaces your makeup brushes come in contact with: your face, your bathroom countertop and the inside of your makeup bag, to name just a few. Given that makeup brushes see a lot of places, they need to be cleaned regularly to prevent them from becoming bacteria magnets.
"Eventually, if you continue to use the dirty brushes, they will irritate your skin and cause itching and burning eyes," says Tracey Peart, Makeup Artist. Using dirty brushes also impacts the look of your makeup: "The application won’t be as flawless. Dirty brushes make for streaky application," she says.
Peart recommends cleaning your brushes once per week. “Wash them with water and liquid dish soap or shampoo once a week and lay them flat to dry,” she says. Proper brush care will also extend the lifespan of your brushes, saving you money since you won’t have to replace them as often.
3. Over-tweezing your brows
Brow maintenance is key to looking groomed and polished, but some women get carried away and pluck until they’re left with tadpole-like brows. “Many women start plucking and don’t know when to stop. They always think that ‘just one more’ and they’ll be perfect,” says Peart.
This is not the case. Too much tweezing can completely change the look of your face. “If your brows are too thin, they can make your face look bigger and, most importantly, they can make you appear older than you are. Thicker eyebrows are much more youthful looking,” Damone says.
To get a nice shape for your brows, try not to get too close to the mirror. If you get too up-close-and-personal it’s very easy to lose perspective of how much hair you’re removing. Damone suggests booking an appointment at one of his salons in New York or Beverly Hills or going to see a Damone trained brow specialist in your city!
To get the full picture, Peart recommends taking a few steps back from the mirror, and switching back and forth between brows so both your right and left brow get equal attention.
4. Improperly applying eyeliner
Many women make the mistake of pulling their delicate eyelids too taut when drawing on eyeliner. Stretching the eyelid is bad because it causes fine lines and wrinkles, and can cause injury to the very thin skin around the eye.
Instead, try this simple technique: Keep your eyelid closed and relaxed when drawing on your liner. Don’t draw one continuous line; do short, even strokes all the way across the lid to get the most natural-looking line.
5. Touching your face
Touching your face throughout the day is something that most women do subconsciously, without even realizing it.
Consistently touching your face encourages the transfer of dirt and oils from your fingertips onto your skin, which can clog your pores and cause breakouts. Wear makeup! Wearing makeup often keeps us from touching our faces because we don’t want to smudge or make a mess of a fresh application.
6. Picking at blemishes
Blemishes are never flattering, but if squeezed, they can look even worse and leave permanent scars. Resist the urge to pick, and if you must get rid of a blemish, visit a professional esthetician who can gently extract whiteheads or blackheads.
7. Using old makeup
Like most household items, makeup expires. Once the package is opened, makeup products become more susceptible to contamination, and can collect bacteria.
These germs will not only cause blemishes and skin irritations, but if you apply old makeup around the eye area, they can cause eye infections, Mascaras should be replaced every three to four months; foundations and lip products last around a year, and powder eye shadows and blushes can last up to two years.
A good idea is to mark the date you opened it somewhere on the product – place a sticker on the bottom of the product, for instance – so you can keep tabs on how old it is. And remember: Never share your makeup with anyone. It’s just asking for cross-contamination and a host of skin troubles.
With just a few tweaks to your existing routine, you can nip any bad beauty behaviors in the bud, and be on your way to a safer and healthier beauty regimen in no time!
Numerous governments over the centuries have gone so far as to attempt to ban it. Not only was it a near legal offense, women in certain cultures were publicly criticized and considered prostitutes. (In all fairness, some of them actually were.)
On the flip side, the iconic beauty product ignited incredibly territorial demands from women like Elizabeth Taylor, who allegedly forbid the wearing of lipstick by any other women working on her film sets. Yet, ultimately, even La Liz couldn’t wrangle in the country’s growing obsession with lip color — by the turn of the century, a staggering percentage of American women revealed they routinely wore lipstick. Even more sowhen times are tough.
