Want Clean Skin?

watercleaneObviously we shower, but then there are bits of our skin that are exposed ie face, neck & décolletage that need a more nourishing and gentle cleanse. This can be a post code lottery! If you live in London your skin gets very dirty, as opposed to a more rural or less built up area. You also need to take into consideration the type of job you do and what your skin is exposed to on a daily basis.

Facial Cleanser should not:


Your skin gets a surface layer of daily grease and grime from the pollution in the air, traveling on the tube or just being at home or work, pollution from central heating, air condition etc The clever thing about the skin is that it has an amazing protective barrier that stops dirt particles from absorbing into it. They just sit on the surface of this clever organ without ever penetrating.

avstcleanlotionboxwebSo if that is the case doing a deep cleanse is not really necessary. All you need is a cleanser that will remove this layer of grease and grime without any need to go any deeper. If you wear make-up then this layer of grease and grim will simply sit on top - so you just need a cleanser to clean your make up off and the job is all done! Best to cleanse twice 1. Clean of the skin 2. Clean the skin, 2 easy steps.

Always check your cleanser has no SD Alcohol as they will not only take off the grease and grime, but also the natural oils on the skin that act as the barrier. By removing them on a daily basis you will only comprise your skin. Over cleansed skins can comprise the delicate layer that is there to protect us from the grease and grime of the world - by over cleaning it you are putting your skin under undue stress.

Grease from the airsits in the pores and turns black, regular cleansing will help eradicate black heads. Basic cleansing is the first important step to an excellent skincare routine, a rough guide is that normal/combination skin use a cleansing gel/facial wash for a more mature/dry skin use a nourishing cleansing cream.
