To cleanse or not to cleanse….that is the question
Well obviously the answer is always cleanse, but why? It’s safe to say there are many people who are the ‘soap and water’ kind when it comes to cleaning their face. It’s cheap and your product never needs to leave the shower. Sounds like a winner to some I’m sure. That’s when you need to take a long, hard think about what you get up to in the shower. You stand under the shower for a bit, wash your face with soap, wash under your arms with the same soap, wash your… you know... with that very same soap and then repeat it the following day. Face - urgh!
The more we thought about it the more we thought, in most situations in life we recognise the need for a specialist. A specialist by definition is a person who specialises in or devotes themselves to a particular area of activity. We have the very same need for our skin. If you want the most effective use out of something or someone, they need to know what to do and what their focus is. We can’t have one product and expect it to be effective in every area of need on our face and body, it's strengths in one area would be completely wasted and unnecessary in another. Overall we have the same needs, but how they are fulfilled differs from person to person. Once you get over the thought process that one size fits and suits all, you’ll recognise the need for a good skin regime.
Every smart skin care ritual starts with a cleanse. The daily grind of life can start to take its toll on your skin and by cleansing it washes away the buildup of grime. A good cleanse gets that deep down dirt up and out of those pores, leaving your face feeling fresh and glowing from the inside out.
Knowing what cleanser to use is the next challenge. Again, we all have different skin types and actually at different times of year, our skin will have a different need. So it’s not a bad thing to mix them up every once and awhile. So here is our Temple Spa guide to cleansers:
BE GONE - A kind hearted cleansing lotion for Sensitive Skin
The gentlest way to say goodbye to those impurities. BE GONE is a richly formulated, state of the art, high-performance 'elastic' texture (i.e. not runny) 'springs' the debris from deep within the pores to ensure a really deep cleanse. Its ingredients are known to settle and soothe, and there is no fragrance and colour which can sometimes make super sensitive skin a bit cross. It contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredients, has anti-ageing benefits (which is always a good thing) and reduces the effect of stress on the skin.
