Correct Cleansing

Often at the end of the day most of us want to quickly remove our makeup, shower and jump into bed. Is your eagerness to take the day off badly impacting your skin? Correctly cleansing skin is one topic I love educating clients about.

Think about how long the cleansing process takes during a facial? Now think about how long you spend cleansing your face each night? I'm not suggesting you spend 15mins cleansing but taking the time to correctly cleanse will have your skin glowing in no time.

Always cleanse your skin in the morning to help remove the buildup of oils and skin cells from your skin repairing overnight, starting the day fresh is important. In the evening I suggest double cleansing to really help your skin be at it's best. First I remove my eye makeup with micellar water on cotton pads. Then I use the SpaCeuticals Bio Cleansing oil which helps dissolve makeup and grime and is packed with antioxidants and omega oils to help strengthen the skins natural lipid barrier. Use a warm washcloth (clean each day) to remove the cleansing oil to leave you feel supple. Oil cleansers are fantastic for all skin types and give a very thorough cleanse without stripping the skin. Following this I use the SpaCeuticals Lactic Cleanser which has L-Lactic acid blended with fermented papaya to gently dissolve dead skin cells. Once removed you can follow with your evening routine of serum, eye cream and moisturiser. My expert tip is to ensure you use your anti-aging and targeted serums and creams in the evening as your skin rests and repairs overnight.

The Bio Cleansing Oil and Lactic cleanser are a power duo. Double cleansing can really improve your skin clarity and texture, give it a try and let me know your results.
