Does a daily routine guarantee a fresh face?
What I do know is the lack of a routine most certainly does not.
Cleansing is the one element of my skincare routine I try and be consistent with; when I am lazy I can really see and feel the difference. Choosing the right cleanser is the foundation for our best skincare regime. Heading straight to bed with a face full of makeup on is a definite no go. I know we sometimes do – no judgement – it is one of those unavoidable habits, as long as it isn’t every night.
Cleansing the skin takes only a few minutes and it truly is a game-changer.
* Cleansing removes makeup and the build-up of oil. The build-up of product on our face can result in clogged pores and a dull complexion.
* Cleansing stimulates and boosts hydration, giving your skin a layer of moisture before even applying other holy-grail skincare products.
- *Cleansing maintains clear, fresh skin and gives us a blank canvas to work on our facial routine.
- 1. Cleanse Morning and Night
Cleanse both when you wake up, and before bed. It’s one of the good habits and worth persevering with.
- 2. Try A Two-Step Cleanse
For better results try a double cleanse. Opt for a foaming cleanser to gently and efficiently remove the build-up of product. Take a second gentle cleanser to remove any excess residue and add hydration. If dryness is an issue use the foaming cleanser only once a week.
- 3. No Shortcuts
Often we lean towards the quickest and most convenient solutions for our skin; they aren’t always the most effective. I have never found face wipes to be the answer for cleansing on a permanent basis.
4. Cleanse and Mask at The Same Time
This cleanser from Romilly Wilde can be applied as a mask and left on to really go one step further. I like to luxuriate in the bath and leave a thick layer on my face and neck for ten minutes plus; it not only feels wonderful but also rejuvenating at the same time.
Cleansing is the part of the skincare routine I really enjoy, probably the most. The rewards v’s effort are clearly visible and apart from anything else I find it a relaxing ritual. I mix my cleansers. Right now I am using this one morning and night to help me combat dehydrated skin; once a week I will use the air mousse cleanser followed by the cleansing milk for a total “clean” workout. The idea is to mix products up and let our skin tell us what it needs.
It probably knows best. xv
