Double cleansing – why you should be doing it

Double cleansing is an important step in your skincare routine, especially in the evening time. For those who think that cleansing your skin twice might be excessive, let us explain why we recommend it. If you've been wearing makeup and/or SPF all day, that first cleanse will break down the products. The second cleanse will ensure that everything is washed away properly and it will work on the skin itself, not on the products on top of it. It helps to remove dirt, grime and oil on the skin, allowing your skin to absorb your skincare products more effectively.

How to treat post-summer hyperpigmentation

While hyperpigmentation can occur throughout the year, it's more common after the summer. Post-summer hyperpigmentation usually appears in places that are exposed to the sun like the face, neck, chest and hands.  Excess melanin production is what causes dark spots on the skin.  It is produced to protect your skin from UV damage whenever you are exposed.   These spots stand out from the rest of your skin tone and can become quite obvious.

Would you like to learn how to use Beauty sleep to help your skin look more youth-full? Michelle Ryan, National Trainer for Image Skincare explains

You have all heard of the term Beauty Sleep, but I’m going to break it down and explain what happens the skin while we sleep. At night, your body is in a state of rest, during this cycle your skin will heal and repair itself and detoxify from the daily free radicals to which it has been exposed. Your skin’s collagen and elastin have a chance to regenerate with a little helping hand from ingredients such as Retinol, Vitamin C or Peptides. Your skin will also go through a phase called ‘trans epidermal water loss (TEWL)’ This is whereby water just evaporates from the skin while we sleep. So, it is important to incorporate ingredients with ceramides or marine collage spheres to trap this moisture in your skin and prevent dehydration.

If you want to keep a glow year-round, you have to be proactive about hydration, and we make it easy with these three professional picks for winter skincare.

The Causes of Dry Skin

There are many skin care lines and products that are geared toward addressing dry skin. However, some moisturizer products on the market actually contain ingredients that can exacerbate dryness. These ingredients include parabens, phthalates, alcohol and mineral oils, which are included in skin care products to serve as fillers. These fillers are added with the intention of making the product more attractive to the consumer.
