Come Clean

With a plethora of new beauty devices on the market and an all new ‘collagen liquid’ being mixed into our morning smoothies, we seem to have forgotten about the most important step in ones skincare routine, cleansing. And trust us ladies when we say this; it’s an age old step in the beauty routine but one you most definitely do not want to forget about.

We are talking about your daily deep cleanse which does so much more than just remove post-work make-up.

Throughout the day, airborne bacteria and pollution is attracted to your skin. And if not washed away properly, they could potentially contribute to ageing, pigmentation and breakouts. We will leave this thought here...

The solution is simple and one that we at Ella Baché HQ practice daily, double cleansing.

What is double cleansing?

The double cleansing ritual involves using a cleansing oil or balm to break down make-up, SPF, sebum and impurities from the surface of your skin first. This is followed by deep water or cream based cleanser. Each cleanse compliments one another whether it be removing the surface impurity or re hydrating the skin and controlling the pH levels.

The First Cleanse

The first cleanse is designed to wipe away the day’s build up without stripping the skin, that’s why it is imperative to choose the right cleanser and one that won’t strip your skin of its pH level and natural oils. We recommend Ella Baché Huile Aux Fleurs an oil based cleanser that instantly dissolves stubborn make-up and removes any surface impurities; enriched with floral oils it will leave your skin feeling smooth and nourished.

Whether you are a double cleanser or not, be sure to massage your product in for a minute to thoroughly remove make-up, toxins, pollution and build-up. Taking the full minute to cleanse will see you reap the benefits from the product and its ingredients.

The Second Cleanse

The second cleanse is designed to purify the pores and prepare the skin for the products to follow, not to be shortened this cleanse requires a full minute too. Investing in a cream based cleanser such as Ella Baché Lait Enrichi Requin will see your skin instantly hydrated, soft and smooth.


Double cleansing each evening will brighten any dullness, ultimately lifting the complexion. Creating the perfect base for serums, night creams and magic to completely absorb into the skin; say hello to a plump youthful complexion.

Once you have adapted the double cleanse into your life the overall routine will most likely take a shorter period of time than it did to read this article, you will see your skin is primed and prepped for the continuing products and your complexion, clear of nasty companions.
