Why Cleanse ?
Updated: Jan 10
Cleansing your skin is the only way to start your skincare regime, every day, every night. A face wash, a balm, a cream, with a face cloth, cotton wool, your hands, however it works for you.
Cleansing your skin removes makeup, oil, dirt and debris from the surface of your skin. Even if you don't wear makeup your skin comes into contact with other skincare products, along with pollution, microbes, sweat and sticky dead skin cells. Build up of any of these on the skin will lead to dryness, lack of luminosity, breakouts, acne and irritation.
Oh ! And sadly, none of the other beautiful products you use on your skin will penetrate through that build up !
Beauty is a proud stockist of 2 professional skincare ranges which both include a myriad of formula's and effective ingredients to cleanse your skin and to treat it at the same time.
Let's have a look at a few, starting with a good morning wake up call for your skin.
Elemis Cica Calm Cleansing Foam £25.00
A brand new cleanser from Elemis, Cica Calm is a nourishing cleanser, designed to soothe, calm and hydrate the skin whilst effectively removing makeup. Super easy and quick to use. Massage 2 pumps into a damp skin and splash away for a fresh, hydrated and protected skin.
Medik8 Surface Radience Cleanse £18.00
A real keystone of Medik8, SRC is formulated with a blend of Mandelic, Salycilic and Lactic Acid. All of these gently exfoliating acids are reknown for their superior anti~ageing qualities. The blend of acids work on both the upper and lower levels of the skin, supercharging cell renewal and leaving the skin soft to the touch, brighter and visibly more youthful.
Try and avoid cleansing in the shower, the water is too hot for your skin.
You've had your day and you're ready to relax for the evening. Our best tip is to remove your makeup and treat your skin before you sit down to watch TV. You're a lot more likely to do it properly then, than just before your head hits the pillow.
Elemis Pro~Collagen Cleansing Balm £44.00.
Multi~award winning and much loved by everyone thats tried it, Cleansing Balm is a firm favorite. A silky and luxurious balm that melts in the hand, it will dissolve makeup, remove grime and can also be used as a beautifully nourishing face mask. Cleansing Balm comes with its own luxury cleansing cloth to create a full treatment experience with one product.
Medik8 Lipid Balance Cleansing Oil £27.00
Even the toughest waterproof makeup can't stand up to the power of this cleansing oil. The nourishing formula is designed to replenish the skin natural defence mechanism so perfect for sensitive skin or any skin thats
under attack from free radicals or pollution
Both professional skincare ranges have many more options to cleanse your skin. If you need any advice or guidance on which is best for you, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Try a Double cleanse in the evening and see how your skin feels. Either use your evening cleanser twice, once to remove your makeup and the second time to cleanse your skin, or try using two different cleansers, see what works for you. Try different face cloths, cotton, microfibre or bamboo but make sure its a clean one every day. All will give a slightly different feel to your treatment and make your cleanse as effective as it can be.
Whatever you decide to do, try and make it as consistant as you can. Your skin will thank you for it and so will your Therapist.
