Top tips for the perfect cleanse
Written by Angela, 28th December 2012
With grime, pollution and long-lasting make-up, a quick splash with soap and water no longer cuts it on the cleansing front! Our skin is actually now dirtier than it was in our mothers and grandmothers time, thanks to the presence of environmental pollutants and extended wear make-up.
Soap and water cant penetrate the layer of oil-based debris that coats the surface of the skin. In fact, even a more thorough cleansing with a surfactant- based cleanser wont fully melt down this barrier. What we really need to do is say hello to the double cleanse. The double cleanse has been part of the professional skin treatment for many years, and its time we all embraced its dramatic results! The first cleanse should be carried out with a product that will dissolve oil-based debris and surface dirt. We recommend Dermalogicas Pre-Cleanse which is ideal for the job. This prepares the way for an in-depth cleanse with a cleanser suitable for skin type and skin concerns. Whether it be a foaming face wash or a creamy cleanser the skin has been prepared for an efficient cleanse with Pre-Cleanse.
So for a professional clean at home, to really have the healthiest glowing skin just try dedicating a little time to your skin every day. Unfortunately unlike the latest fashion we cant just update our skin, its with us forever so definitely worth the investment. Just think how clean is your skin really?
