Double The Skincare Love
ne cleanse, two cleanse? How many times is too many times to cleanse your skin? Well, if you haven't jumped on the double cleanse bandwagon yet, now is the time! As so many of us are looking for ways to fill our time these days, why not incorporate something new into your skincare routine?
Cleaning your face properly is such an important part of you caring for your skin. Think of it this way, if you’re “washing your face” but not really cleansing it properly then it makes it difficult for your serums and other products to work as well as they should.
Imagine your freshly cleansed skin as the base. Without this, all the other steps become much less useful. So, where do you start? Let us walk you through it.
The benefit of double cleansing is that the first cleanser will break down any makeup, remove dirt and excess oils from the day and clean your skin. The second cleanser will address your particular skin type or concern and should have ingredients to hydrate, smooth or exfoliate and treat acne.
Grab your favorite creamy or oil cleanser, ours is Sanitas Lemon Cream Cleanser. Then simply massage the full face, neck and décolleté with the cleanser add a tiny bit of warm water. Once the product is evenly distributed and massaged into the skin, it’s time to emulsify. What does this mean? Get your hands damp with warm water and massage your face again. This will create a milky effect and “activate” it’s cleansing ability. After that you will rinse the remaining cleanser from your skin and it's time for your second cleanse!
At this stage we will keep our hands and face damp and begin massaging the soapy cleanser onto the skin. Personally I would use Beta Cleanser (Jennifer) and JoAnna will use Purifying Clay Cleanser, depending on the day and our skin. Then basically repeat the whole process of massaging, probably a minute or so, no need to get crazy here.
Once you have cleansed all the areas, you will wash off with tepid water, and towel dry.
Just be sure not to pull on the face. pat, pat, pat!
That, is how you double cleanse like a pro! This process is great to use every day, once a day. Now, go and give it a try. We're sure once you get in there, you are going to love double cleansing as much as we do. If you have any questions or want to know more about skincare shoot us an email here.
