The Most Important Step In Skin Cleansing

Whenever anyone has an issue with the way their skin looks, I always start with the cleanser. This is the first step in helping you sort out the problem that is preventing you from having the skin that you love. And of course the type
of skin you have, always answers what type of cleanser you need to use.


The key here is to keep it simple. You need to choose a cleanser that will not strip, irritate, dry your skin or simply not work for your skin.

Using a cleanser is a fundamental of skincare and when you do it regularly, you will have the type of skin you love.

For us that live or work in the city the reason is obvious- grime and pollution need to be washed off. Make-up should also be removed. The purpose of using a cleanser however is greater than just cleaning the skin.

It prepares it for the next step, using a great moisturizer or night cream, but we will cover this step in the next newsletter.

I use a cleanser at night before bed since this is the time when cell repair and regeneration occurs.

I never use a soap as it can strip the skin of its natural oils and cause breakouts and skin sensitivity.

If you have sensitive, normal dry or dehydrated skin types you should use a cream cleanser. Cream cleansers tend to be soothing, healing and hydrating- perfect for the winters here in the Northeast! For those who prefer a foaming cleanser, we carry both soothing ones for sensitive skin to deeply cleansing ones for oily skin.

I want to encourage you to call me or come by the salon, here in New York City, if you have any questions. I always love to hear from you and if I can help in anyway I will be more than happy to do so. The skin care salon’s number is 212.949.2350.

Lastly, Cleanse Your Way to Beautiful Skin!

Here is my recommendation for you, Phyt’s Lait Hydro-Nettoyant/Cleansing Milk, this certified organic cleanser from France smells incredible and feels pure the moment it touches your skin.

What’s amazing about this cream cleanser is that it really removes surface dirt and makeup and can be simply rinsed off the face with water.

Its one step to have clean, fresh skin!

Apply a quarter size amount to a dry face and neck. Massage into the skin and rinse with tepid water.
