What the heck is double cleansing and what are the benefits? ... Well let me tell you!
Just like it sounds, double cleansing involves washing your face two times. Yes its sounds super high maintenance, but those few extra minutes will pay off big time.
Sometimes in the midst of our busy and hectic lives we forget about one of the most important routines: washing our face...properly that is. A splash of warm water or a wipe of makeup remover sometimes doesn't do the trick.
A deep cleanse is essential in the evening after a day of exposure to the elements - not only to remove makeup, but excess oil and accumulation of bacteria and pollution that sticks to our skin. Without removing it all properly, it can lead to potential ageing, pigmentation and breakouts. No thank-you.
To properly remove this layer, we do a two step process.
Step One: Oil cleanse. This breaks down the sweat, oil, makeup, SPF and serums. The oil will bind to the makeup, oil and dirt to effectively remove it from the skins surface. It also softens the skin to allow your next cleanser to do its job even more efficiently. Apply to dry skin and massage into your face for a minute or two. Remove with warm water or a warm face cloth.
Step Two: Deep cleanse. The second round of cleansing does a much deeper cleanse and can penetrate into the pores to remove any impurities. It also allows you to absorb the full benefits of the ingredients in your beautiful skin care products to follow. Massage into skin and rinse with warm water.
Getting into this skincare ritual is well worth the extra step! Say goodbye to dull looking skin and hello to a brighter and clearer complexion.
