I’m often asked by my clients…
“What makes an effective skincare regime?”
My answer is, that creating time in both the morning and evening, to be consistent in carrying out a thorough routine and having a good system in place appropriate to skin type will be most beneficial and provide the most effective results.
I understand that the pace of our lives can make it difficult to allow time and even some clients have admitted they haven’t carried out the removal of make-up before bed, when it is actually the evening that more attention to the skin should be carried out.
The evening routine should consist of a deep cleanse removing make up traces from the skin, oils and bacteria that may sit on the skin surface. The oil that the skin produces know as sebum, attracts dirt and bacteria throughout the day, making it very important that the cleanse in the evening, removes the layer of impurities that can potentially lead to breakouts and congestion.
Pro Tip: I recommend using oil and micellar water based cleansing options for the removal of make-up and excess oils as they breakdown the bonds within heavy duty make-up and sunscreens.
An effective cleanser for the removal of make-up that is suited to all skin types, especially a dehydrated and lack lustre skin to try our Decleor Bi-phase Caring Cleanser and Make-up Remover which uses botanical oils and waters to breakdown and dissolve the impurities.
For breakout prone and congested skin, try the deep cleansing power of Dermalogica Precleanse which is renown for its exceptional deep cleansing properties melts through layers of built up make-up, sunscreens and pollutants.
In the mornings this step is not an essential, but I advise that in the evening clients follow a first cleanse with a second, using a kind to skin cleanser that will the cleanse and condition the freshly prepared skin. It will also ensure that no impurities remain and then maximise the effectiveness of any serums, masks and moisturisers that follow.
For those with a dry, prematurely ageing skin type, Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Cleanser is the perfect treatment cleanser that soothes and restores the skin whilst protecting the skins nature barriers.
