To Cleanse or NOT to CLEANSE

TRIED AND TESTED? Should I wash my face in the morning and evening?

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When is comes to beauty routine questions this one is most often the common questions - should i cleanse in the morning too? As a skincare therapist my eyeballs almost roll in my head before I blurt out the answer YES! of course you do. Why wouldn't you?

There are some basic concepts to this rule that always need to be considered but here are some key points

  • You've washed your face and applied (generally) reasonably active skincare products over night time - these often leave a small debris on the surface that should be removed before you see sunlight for the day
  • To not wash your face (in my eyes) just doesn't feel right - it needs a morning refresh? Some say rinse with just water however this is a BIG NO NO when it comes to protecting the barrier of your skin. Use your correct cleanser both morning and night time to ensure your skin barrier is protected regardless of the time of day
  • This leads to my next comment - if a cleanser is too harsh to use both AM and PM its the WRONG CLEANSER!
  • Oily skins need a gentle reminder to regulate the amount of oil being produced and cleansing is essential to this regulation

So TWO is the magic number - always cleanse following morning exercise (not before) and ensure you use a recommended cleanser that best suits your skin needs. Additional tools to help with simple and effective cleansing and removal can be considered but the key is within the cleansing medium you use.

TEWL? Pardon

TEWL? Pardon

Put in simple terms TEWL is the process of water moving through the deep cells to the surface and evaporating in an accelerated rate. Why is this a bad thing, you may ask?
