Did you know that going to bed with makeup on can age your skin up to 7 times faster!?
This is one of the many reasons why cleansing is the first and most important part of any skincare routine and we are here to share that the art of double cleansing is what we call twice as nice! This practice is simple and super effective to ensure you are prepping your skin for optimal results that you will be able to see and feel.
Over the course of the day the skin on our face is affected by an array of different residues including but not limited to makeup, sweat, dirt, pollution and general grime. It’s extremely important to make sure we are removing absolutely all of this build up before heading to bed, we cannot stress the significance of this enough.
Think of your skin as a canvas. You need a clean canvas to start your work. So, if you're only washing your face once before bed, particularly if you’ve been wearing makeup, it's highly likely that you’re not cleaning everything off your skin (meaning you’re not going to be working on a blank canvas). Unwanted residue left on the skin can cause oxidative damage and can also contribute to the breakdown of collagen and development of wrinkles and sun spots, so this is obviously something we all want to avoid.
The good news is a double cleanse is the simple solution to achieving a cleaner canvas and also assures that your pores are properly prepped and primed for the rest of your skincare routine. When your face is cleaned correctly the products you use afterwards penetrate deeper into the skin, ultimately providing you better results and maximising impact!
With that being said you of course need to make sure you are infusing your pores with the best possible products and ingredients - all of which you will find in our carefully curated range of skincare at Fifth Element Day Spa.
Always remember: Cleansing twice is the best advice to ensure your skin is squeaky clean make sure you add this into your night-time routine!
