Beauty Bible: Cleansing Holds The Key

Beauty Bible on vickiarcher.com

We do need a daily routine to guarantee a fresh face.


If there is one thing to concentrate on when it comes to the daily skincare routine, it is cleansing. Choosing an effective cleanser is the foundation product for a good skincare regime. Heading straight to bed with a face full of makeup on is a definite no go.


A few minutes to thoroughly cleanse does hold the key.


* Removes makeup and the build-up of oil. The build-up of product on your face often results in clogged pores, causing breakouts and a dull complexion. Using a cleanser ensures that your skin is super clean.


* Boosts hydration, giving your skin a layer of moisture before even applying other holy-grail skincare products.


  • *Maintains clear, fresh skin. Doesn’t it make you feel amazing to stand at the bathroom mirror and staring back at you is a fresh, fully cleansed face? A blank canvas to begin the rest of your day.

Beauty Bible: Cleansing Holds The Key


  1. 1. Cleanse Morning and Night

It is important to cleanse both when you wake up, and before bed. A simple tip to follow when the idea of slipping straight into bed is all too tempting; complete your skincare routine as soon as you return home.

  1. 2. Do A Two-Step Cleanse

For higher results in maintaining a fresh, clean face make sure to double cleanse. Opt for a premier cleanser to gently and efficiently remove the build-up of product. Take a second gentle cleanser to remove any excess residue and add hydration.

  1. 3. Ditch The Wipes

Often we lean towards the quickest and most convenient solutions for our skin, but are they the most effective? Using face wipes is not the answer for cleansing on a permanent basis. Perhaps handy for a quick pre-gym swipe over but never for a full cleanse.

I love a cleansing wipe to remove makeup and then follow with La Roche Posay Gentle Cream Cleanser, it leaves my skin cleansed but not stripped of natural oils.


My skin is looking the best it has in years…because I’ve simplified my regime (aka, finally recovered from 1 1/2 years of Sephora sample testing that had destroyed it). Plus, I have finally found products that my skin actually likes. My latest find is a line of skincare from Hada Labo Tokyo. In the morning I use their cream cleanser, hydrating serum, and milky lotion–all of which contain Hyaluronic Acid. That seems to be the magic ingredient. At night it starts with Yes to Blueberries foaming cleanser, then a combination of Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré and NOW Solutions Vegetable Glycerine. I am so happy with the results, at long last.

So nice to see these fresh faces. In my opinion there are huge break throughs in skin care beyond what is over the counter in department stores. Basic cleansing with what you have listed is wonderful to get clean! I love the Filorga Foam Cleanser but I don’t stop with that. What make a big difference is active ingredients such as alpha hydroxy, retinols (Rx strength) and active vitamin C cream. When we are in our 20’s just the cleanse is adequate however woman of a certain age will truly see the results in using the active ingredient products. Taking care of our skin with products along with monthly facials including mini peels and dermabrasion. Also important to exfoliate once a week as well. You want cell turn over and to be rid of build up.


As always, your suggestions are perfect ideas to pique my interest as I move toward a different facial care plan. Thank you, Vicki!
