Some may say I’m get­ting a lit­tle too car­ried away with the whole con­cept of spring-clean­ing. Though I’m known for tak­ing things to the ex­treme es­pe­cially when it comes to my skin, I de­cided to give this dou­ble duty sk­in­care a try. A-list skin spe­cial­ists are now en­cour­ag­ing not one cleanser, but two — and that’s ev­ery morn­ing and evening (four in to­tal in case you haven’t caught on!). That’s a lot of cleans­ing eat­ing into pre­cious metime. The rea­son be­hind this new-age think­ing is due to the in­creased lev­els of pol­lu­tion that our skin is ex­posed to ev­ery day. While one cleanse may ‘sur­face clean’ the sec­ond goes one step fur­ther en­sur­ing ev­ery last trace of make-up is re­moved and the skin’s sur­face is even more pure and there­fore sus­cep­ti­ble to the serums and mois­turis­ers that fol­low, en­cour­ag­ing the prod­ucts to work even bet­ter. Though I’m not con­vinced this dou­ble cleanse is ne­c­es­sary, un­less you have a face full of the­atri­cal makeup, I do like the squeaky clean feel it has on my skin, and the ra­di­ance of my clear com­plex­ion. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. the de­sign du jour, most prob­a­bly be­cause it ticks yet an­other hot trend this sea­son. If a but­toned shirt is too busi­ness-like for you, an al­ter­na­tive op­tion is to try a shirt dress — it has all the characters of a shirt but just in a longer line (GAP and Zara have a large se­lec­tion). And let’s not for­get the weight of a shirt; it’s the per­fect bal­ance be­tween feel­ing hot and cold, mak­ing this a num­ber one tran­si­tional piece for spring­time sun­shine and April show­ers too.
