5 Reasons to Cleanse Your Skin

Are you cleansing your skin correctly to get the best benefits? Why is cleansing important you ask?

 1.    Cleansers are made specifically for the face.

Cleansing milks are particularly gentle and suitable for most skin types.  They assist in removing all makeup, dirt, grime, and pollutions from the environment. Leaving your skin feeling clean, fresh and comfortable. Tip for our makeup lovers ~ We recommend double cleansing as the first cleanse will remove your makeup and the second cleanse is your TRUE SKIN Cleanse. Even if you are not wearing makeup you’re not out of the woods yet. During the day sweating, going out in traffic, or just sitting still, pollutants from the environment accumulate on your skin.

2.   Eye Makeup Removers or Cleansers are formulated to work gently on the eye region.

Removing your eye makeup with the correct product will gently dissolve your mascara and eye makeup without harsh rubbing or dragging of this delicate area. The skin around the eyes is particularly thin and sensitive therefore we recommend using a product that has been created especially for this area of the face. It will eliminate makeup that is gentle and kinder on your eye contour area. If you use waterproof mascara, you will need an oil-based eye makeup remover. TIP: Nourish with an eye gel or cream 1-2 times daily. 

Thalgo Express Makeup Remover (125ml) $42.00

Thalgo Eveil A La Mer Express Make-Up Remover can be used on both the eyes and lips. Removes all traces of make-up, including waterproof. Suitable for all skin types including sensitive.

3.    Refine skin and remove all trace elements of grime and pollutants.

Using a  cleansing toner or lotion will finalise the cleansing process.  In this stage of your cleansing routine, you will remove final traces of cleanser and rebalance the skin. Toning promotes enhanced penetration from your treatment serums and creams that are working actively to repair, hydrate and balance skin.

4.    Ask yourself this?

Do you shampoo and condition your hair? Cleansing and toning for the face is the same 🙂

5.    Your skin is your biggest organ.

So, don’t forget the skin on the rest of your body. It’s the flexible outer covering that acts as the barrier, protecting the body from harmful things in the outside world such as moisture, the cold and sun rays, as well as germs and toxic substances. It also helps with temperature regulation, immune defence, vitamin production, and sensation.  So use a mild cleanser or light soap for an all over body skin cleanse. Keep water temperature warm (not hot) ~ too hot has a drying effect.  For rough areas like our backs or bumps on bums, a cleansing exfoliant works a treat. Try our la Vie elixir Macadamia Scrub, followed up by la Vie elixir Lapis Crème for all over hydration.

Spring Spa Offers

Get a Good Night’s Rest

It’s important to make sure that you get enough sleep every night. Getting less than 7 hours of sleep can negatively affect you and did you know it can also have an effect on pre-mature ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles? Get yourself into a relaxing night time routine, read a book, have a cup of herbal tea and have some time for yourself to unwind.

Drink Water

Drink plenty of water to help keep yourself hydrated, and make your skin look great. As a bonus, drinking water will also help your body transport the necessary nutrients to keep you healthy and energised! 

Spring Skin Care

Coming out of our dry winter skin as the weather starts to warm up it’s good to take a look at our skincare routine. We begin to spend more time out and about in the sun in Spring so incorporating a BB cream or CC cream for the face will help protect the skin from sun damage and premature ageing.
