HOW CLEAN IS YOUR SKIN?
Posted on September 16 2015
Cleansing your face before bed is one of the cardinal rules for maintaining healthy skin. Now, I am guilty of forgetting to cleanse before retreating to slumber on occasion and I've rationalised by thinking it's not a big deal. However the effects of not having a clean face before bedtime are actually significant.
Cleansing your face morning and night is essential to maintain a healthy glow, but you need to do it right, and you need to do it regularly. Late night excuses not withstanding!
+ allows dirt and old surface skin cells to be removed
+ enables all that makeup grime and bacteria to be dissolved
+ allows the skin to breathe properly and freely
+ promotes good circulation for your face aka a healthy glow to your cheeks
+ permits the skin to properly benefit from toning and moisturising
+ ensure your hands are clean before you wash your face
+ use warm water and a gentle plant-based cream cleanser such as
our castille cream cleanser
+ gently massage your face using circular motions
+ remove with a warm-water-soaked cotton facecloth to remove excess water
+ finish with rooibos facial toner and lock in moisture argan & rosehip mositurising cream(for dry/mature skin) or jojoba & camellia balancing cream (for oily/combination skin)
