Cleansing your face.
It is almost impossible to see improvement in your skin without a proper cleansing regimen morning and night. Cleansers clear and remove impurities, environmental build-up, make-up, and cellular debris. This gives the skin an opportunity to repair and recover. When the skin is cleansed properly it provides a canvas for serums and moisturizers to repair and improve the skin.
Removing your makeup is a must.
Be sure to take your make-up off every night and never (we mean never!) go to sleep with your makeup on. Leaving your makeup on at night will clog your pores and cause a break out. If you do not cleanse your skin you are not going to allow your night products, such as a serum or moisturizer, to work. During the night, our skin rests as our body temperatures rise which allows our products to repair and improve the skin.
Consult an expert to ensure the correct cleanser is selected.
Using a cleanser that is made specifically for your skin is imperative. Each skincare plan should be customized for your own unique needs to create the proper canvas for more active ingredients to be applied.
Watch your water temperature.
Always use lukewarm water when cleansing the face. The skin is full of natural oils that protect it and act as a barrier. Hot water removes these oils and can cause diffused redness. It’s best to cleanse your face outside of the shower so that you are not exposing it to hot temperatures.
Double cleansing is critical!
I recommend pre-cleansing the skin with Biologique Recherche Eau Micellaire Biosensible–this is the most amazing micellar water on the market, packed with hyaluronic acids and peptides that leave your skin feeling soothed, hydrated and fresh. You will instantly capture impurities and makeup with this magical product. Soak a cotton pad with Eau Micellaire Biosensible and clean the whole face, neck and décolleté. Repeat this until all impurities and make-up have been removed. You can then follow with your recommended cleanser.
Wash your skin immediately after physical activity!
Don’t allow sweat to dry on the skin. This will cause inflammation, redness, irritation, and more congestion in the pores. We recommend soaking cotton rounds in toner and keeping them on hand in a plastic baggie. It’s an easy way to ensure you’ll be able to remove excess sweat from your skin on the go!
With so many skincare products on the market, it can be overwhelming and frustrating. Enlisting the help of an expert can save you money and teach you how to maintain healthy skin for a lifetime.
