I’m sad to say that ‘give-me-a-cuddle’ Gok Wan’s latest series of ‘How to Look Good Naked’ has finished and been replaced with ’10 years youger’ and the not so friendly Nicky Hambleton-Jones. I was, however, pleased to see that they have put more emphaisis on the beauty section of the show and very surprised by their cleansing routine test.
If you missed last night’s program then let me fill you in. Uber-talented make-up artist Lisa Eldridge hit the local shopping centre with a table of water, cleansing wipes, cleanser etc and asked nearby shoppers to take off their make-up as they normally would. She then cleansed their skin again and wiped away the traces of make-up with a muslin cloth, revealing a huge amount of grime that had been left behind.
When you don’t spend the time to correctly clean skin up then you will, without a doubt, end up with clogged pores and a congested complexion. Do your skin a favour and make sure that you cleanse twice in the evening; once to remove make-up and then again to deep clean pores. Until recently I was using Purity Made Simple by Philosophy. At £30.00 it’s not cheap, and its non-foaming consistency takes a bit of getting used to, but I really have fallen in love with it as the formula thoroughly cleans without stripping away essential moisture.
