The foundation of any beauty ritual begins with cleansing, not only do cleansers whip away impurities, they also impact the subsequent skincare steps. No matter how many active ingredients or how expensive a serum or moisturiser is, it simply will not work to it’s maximum potential if it’s applied to skin that isn’t properly cleansed.
Double Cleansing has been around for a while but I found a lot of my clients asking me questions like “exactly what is double cleansing” and “how do I double cleanse my face?” “what’s an oil cleanser?”, have you heard of it? The aim of this post is to demystify and clarify each step by showing how to oil cleanse and how to double cleanse.
Double cleansing combines two highly effective cleansing methods (see my post on cleansing methods part 1) starting with an oil cleanser to remove make-up, SPF and excess grime then following up with a foam, cream or gel cleanse to penetrate deeper into the skin.
A properly cleansed face is a nourished healthy blank canvas for a toner, serum and moisturiser.
No need to prep just begin with your full face of make-up and start with an oil cleanser to melt away the SPF, make-up and any environmental grime laying on your skin. Use around a 1cm to 2cm amount of oil cleanser which should be enough to cleanse the face.
So kick-start regeneration and healing with your skin cleansing and rock your nourished clearer complexion.
