So fresh and so clean, clean
The amount of clients I get who still neglect the cleaning part in their beauty-routine is simply astonishing. Just like the number of people who still fall asleep without taking their make-up off… Hunny, it’s 2018, we really can’t be friends if you don’t wash off your makeup at night. Washing your face, and washing it well, can affect everything from the health and clarity of your skin to the benefits you’ll get from any product you put on top. If your makeup is not coming off fully or you have a whole lotta dead skin cells, then anything else you layer is just not going to be as effective. But there is a difference in washing well and being abrasive.
For example, many acne sufferers, tend to take a harsh approach to cleansing. But this can aggravate the spots. So if you have a reactive skin with lots of spots, lay down the cleansing brushes or washcloths for a while, these can be too intense and potentially spread bacteria. You want to treat the troubled area very delicately and just wash really well with your (clean) hands. A sulfate-free face-wash under the shower or a cleanse-off oil will work wonders.
