The importance of cleansing facial skin cannot be stressed enough. This is particularly important at the end of the day when skin has a buildup of sebum, grime and makeup.  Research has shown this to be the key to slowing down the aging process, preventing large pores and keeping you looking younger for longer with glowing, radiant skin.

While sleeping, blood flow to the skin is higher, removing dead cells and encouraging cell repair. If cells are clogged with dirt and grime, this process will be hampered.
You may ask ‘”Why, if you washed your face before going to bed, is it necessary to do it again in the morning”. Well since skin was working hard all night to replenish itself, it stands to reason that more dead cells have accumulated and need to be washed away. Besides, you can start the day with a fresh, clean face.

The science  behind cleansing:

Make up is generally oil based and this, along with sebum production, attracts dirt and grime to the skin. The best method of cleansing is twofold, oil and a gel or foaming cleanser. Oil works on the principle of ‘like attracts like’ and gently and effectively dissolves accumulated dirt and grime.
Gels or foaming cleansers acts as an emulsifier to remove the last traces of oil and grime. Natural, chemical free ‘No soap’ cleansers which contain plant derived surfactants, are gentle and suitable for all skin types leaving skin clean, soft and moisturized without stripping the acid mantle of the skin.
This double process leaves skin totally and deeply clean and ready to receive the next stages of your beauty regime, toning and feeding.

The method of cleansing:

Place a few drops of oil on a damp cotton wool round, wipe over the entire face and neck, avoiding the eye area. This can be repeated if desired. Work a little of the gel into a rich lather on the face and then rinse thoroughly.
This small investment of time will result in clean, glowing skin and the start to a radiant complexion.
