How Clean Is Your Face?

Cleansing tips from skincare expert Noella Gabriel from Elemis

Posted: 04.04.13

Cleaning your face is as important as brushing your teeth. As much as you may know this, so many women are still guilty of skipping a few stages – yet no matter how tired you are you should never go to bed with your make-up on. It clogs your pores and prevents your skin from breathing for a start, not to mention the ageing effects, and skin irritation it can cause.

Everyone should follow a strict facial cleansing routine, as recommended by Noella Gabriel, Elemis Director of Product & Treatment Development. She advises: 'The secret to good skin maintenance and squeaky clean skin is the daily use, morning and evening of a prescribed cleanser and toner. This is the key to skin radiance and aids the absorption of your prescribed anti-ageing neck, eye and face cream. Cleansing and toning is a vital link to a good skincare regime and should not be overlooked.’
