Remember the time when our skincare routines were simpler and humbler. All we needed was a basic face wash, a moisturiser and only on colder months, an addition of lip balm. But as times more forward, the climate gets tough, our skincare routines got to get more air tight.
If you’re one of those who believes in the goodness of a good serum, mosituriser and face oil, it would be a shame if you haven’t quite gotten on to the double cleansing bandwagon. Why? Because all its potency wouldn’t be seeping into your skin, if it wouldn’t be properly cleansed.
The idea of double cleansing is basically, cleansing your face twice. The first step involves a through makeup removal. It is followed by cleansing, which takes off all the dirt and any other product that’s left on face.
Cleanse number 1
Your first cleanse step can be done by a miceller water or an oil based cleanser. THe micellar water is extremely helpful and gentle in removing everyday makeup residue or any other dirt or grime.
If you like sporting a full face of makeup, pick a face cleansing oil instead. This melts the makeup as soon as you apply it. This is easily the most therapeutic way of removing makeup. Sprinkle some water onto face to emulsify the face cleansing oil.
We especially love the Bioderma Sensibo H2o and the The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Light Cleansing Oil.
Cleanse number 2
Cleanse number two can be done by any kind of face cleanser. If you’re confused which one to pick, stick to a gel cleanser. A gel cleanser gently cleans the face, without stripping your face of any of its moisture.
The Himalaya Neem Purifying Face Wash is a staple and works perfectly for most skin types.
The double cleansing although new to the beauty industry, is a game changer for many. We highly suggest get on to this routine, to see a change in your skin dramatically.
