It's time to spring clean your skin!
After the long winter months there's a good chance that your complexion is looking dull and lacklustre.
But with the outside temperatures starting to rise, it's time to give your skin a well-earned seasonal overhaul.
Bryony is here to show us how to cleanse our skin to have it glowing in no time.
CLEANSERS FOR 1ST STEP CLEANSING:
These products should melt away makeup, SPF and grime.
Cleansing Oils - Super Facialist Vitamin C+ Skin Renew Cleansing Oil, £10.99Cleansing Balms - Trilogy Cleansing Balm, £20.50
CLEANSERS FOR 2ND STEP CLEANSING:
This is the DEEPER cleanse stage. These products should make sure your skin is clean, balanced and ready for the skin to absorb moisturisers/serums etc - you also need a product that focuses on your skin concern (milks for hydration for dry skin, washes for oily skin etc)
Facial washes - Elemis Gentle Foaming Facial Wash, £28Milks - Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gelee Milk, £5.29
Cleansing brushes are ideal for the 2nd step of cleansing, but many are quite intense and shouldn't be used everyday. Use a gentle cleanser with these, such as:
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, £14.99
Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush, £79.00The brush is made up of two colours, each of which are designed for cleansing different areas. The Brush's gentle sonic action helps dislodge a world of impurities, dirt and pollution that hand washing may miss. Even helps lift residue of makeups and sunscreens.
HoMedics Radiance Microdermabrasion, £99.99 The salon grade diamond tip works to exfoliate, whilst the vacuum massage removes dead skin and stimulates regrowth of the new layer underneath, leaving you with a healthier looking complexion. This is a more powerful device so it's best to start slowly - use only once a week, then build up to 2 or 3 times a week if this is comfortable for your skin. You should also start using the device on the lowest intensity and slowly build this up.
FOREO LUNA Mini 2, £119.00This is a small, but powerful, sonic facial cleansing device. It has varying intensities - just keep pressing the power button to find the level that works best for you. It also features an integrated timer, meaning it will pulse every 15 seconds to tell you to move onto a different area of the face. Use twice daily for a deep cleanse, which will remove 99.5% of all dirt and makeup residue.
Konjac Sponge, The Beauty Shelf, £11.97 (Amazon)Don't fancy a gadget cleanser? Then these facial cleansing sponges are great for deep cleaning. These hypo-allergenic sponges contain no chemicals or harmful additives. They are 100% Organic, 100% Natural & 100% Biodegradable. They luxuriously exfoliate, detoxify and balance the skin pH. Gentle enough for sensitive skin conditions and daily use.
TOO TIRED TO CLEANSE:
If you are too tired to go through a double cleanse and just want to make sure you take your makeup off and cleanse quickly these are two good options:
Micellar water - B.Pure Micellar Water, £4.99Cleansing Pads - In Transit No Traces Cleansing Pads, This Works £17
