The Cleansing Agenda
It’s all so easy to get carried away with all the latest product trends. There’s so many amazing serums, moisturisers and masks tempting you to invest all your time and money. However, it’s just as important to remember the basics. So let’s talk adding cleansers to your Beauty Agenda.
Cleansing has many benefits, the right cleanser will be one of your hardest working products helping to deeply cleanse and revitalise, it’s so much more than just a make-up remover. It’s important to find a good cleanser that works for you and remember, this is a twice a day thing. I am surprised at the number of people I speak to who only cleanse in the evening and then splash their face with water in the shower in the morning. Or worse, not bothering to cleanse if they didn’t wear foundation. As well as being the canvas for our make-up, throughout the day our skin is exposed to many external aggressors; the weather, air-con, pollution and as the colder weather creeps in, the heating. The right cleansing routine will not only deep clean your skin but will also help to stimulate a sluggish complexion and enhance the performance of your other products.
At night, our cleansers remove the day – yes that includes our make-up but also any damaging pollutants / free radicals that have adhered to our skin during the day. In addition, cleansing helps to purge impurities leaving the skin ready for rest, renewal and rejuvenation.
In the morning, cleansing is great for waking us up, however again, it’s so much more than that. At night as we sleep our skin is working hard to renew and will excrete unwanted impurities. A morning cleanse will remove any surface dead skin cells and excess oils helping to prepare the skin for a glowing day ahead.
