Although it may seem obvious to most it’s important that I reiterate the importance of cleansing your skin. In my opinion it is the most important step in any skincare routine and should be done morning and night. It’s the first step and therefore if you skip it, or don’t actually cleanse properly you are setting off the next steps. If your skin isn’t properly cleansed, your serums will not penetrate as deeply or effectively. In the morning I cleanse with a wash off cleanser and at night I oil or balm cleanse first, and then wash with my regular wash off cleanser. There are different cleansers for different skin types and skin concerns, most of which I have dealt with, so I have made a list of my must haves below.
