Does your skin feel overly dry, sensitive, or irritated or are you struggling with congestion and breakouts? Part of the issue could be that you are not cleansing correctly. I see this quite often in the clinic. Clients paying lots of money on cleansing products, yet still having issues with their complexion. Unfortunately with so many products out there I understand it can be a daunting task trying to find the right products whilst being bombarded with social media and marketing! ‘Try this, use that….’!! The common problem is your skin type and complexion is different from others, so a cleansing product used by someone else may not be right for you.
The most common mistakes I see people making when it comes to their face washing routines are:
-Picking the wrong cleanser for their skin type
-Using the wrong water temperature
-Using face wipes… a BIG no no!
-Not fully removing make-up, dirt, and oil
-Using poor quality cleansers with harsh ingredients
-And the biggest culprit of all… Over exfoliating!
If you are unsure as to which cleansing products are right for your skin then it is important to speak with skin specialist, independent of a brand. This way you will get a better idea of which cleansers will work for you. I offer online consultations so please free to message if you would like to discuss further.
