The Perfect Cleansing Routine

Spring is well and truly underway; homes are glistening from an overdue Spring Clean but is your skin getting the same treatment?

Many people don’t realise the importance of cleaning your skin properly. As a reflection of our overall health, whether we are feeling tired, run down or just been a bit slack on healthy eating, it will quickly show in our complexion. Luckily, with a bit of TLC you can quickly get your skin back to looking its best, here are my top suggestions for a perfect cleansing routine:

Step 1: Find the Right Products

At The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel, many of our treatments use ESPA skincare, and for good reason! In particular, the Optimal Skin ProCleanser is a great 3 in 1 Cleanser, exfoliator and mask. Targeted to nourish, smooth and visibly brighten complexions, this is suitable for all skin types and ages. Simply smooth a small amount over your face, neck and décolleté working in small circular movements before rinsing away with warm water to leave a radiant glow.

After cleansing, apply 1-2 pumps of ESPA’s Skin Radiance Intensive Serum, a brightening boost for dull and tired skin. Simply press gently onto your face and neck until completely absorbed. With ingredients including Vitamin C and a combination of Mulberry, Bearberry and Liquorice, this will help to revitalise and boost radiance, bringing back gorgeous and glowing skin ready for Summer.

If your concerns are focused on anti-ageing, try Epionce’s Intense Defence Serum, a highly advanced anti-ageing serum. Targeted to stimulate skin rejuvenation, the serum helps reverse fine lines, wrinkles, roughness whilst improving firmness, texture and elasticity.


Step 2: Find the Right Treatments

If you are looking to splash out on skincare and ensure you are getting the right results from expert therapists, why not treat yourself to a Spa Day at The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel? We have lots of treatments targeted for all skin types, including specialised ESPA facials.

Indulge in a natural facial, with the NEW ESPA Natural Facelift Facial in our luxurious treatment rooms. Using powerful age-defying techniques inspired by a Japanese Kobido massage, along with stimulating Jade rollers to give instant results, your skin will be left feeling firm, lifted and beautifully radiant.

Alternatively, for something a little more in depth, try an Aesthetics treatment such as Dermaplanning, an effective and safe exfoliation procedure. Using a sterile surgical scalpel to shave the surface of the skin, this removes any excess dead skin and peach fuzz hairs. Working on all skin types, the treatment has instant results with no downtime and promotes smoother skin!

With the above products and treatments, your skin will be looking fresh and glowy ready for Summer!
