Double Cleansing

July 17, 2015

Ahh, the power of the 'Double Cleanse'....

Adding another cleanser to your beauty routine could be the quickest way to glowing skin.

The double cleanse obsession may seem like too much for some, especially for those who go to bed without doing a thing- but washing your face, and washing it well can really help the health and clarity of your skin.

If you're makeup is'nt coming off well or you have alot of dead skin cells, then everything else you apply like serums and moisturisers are not going to be as affective. 

Cleansing is the first step of skincare, it primes the skin, especially for the regeneration process at night. Its not just about removing dirt- its the action of putting your hands on your skin and massaging -increasing blood flow, which plumps the skin- making it look more rejuvinated.

There are factors that attack our skin on a daily basis such as car fumes,cigarette smoke and pollution- which effect the skins hydration and barrier function. Although we cant avoid exposure to the enviroment we can help the skins barrier by protecting and caring for it daily.

So your asking, what is all this 'double Cleansing' comotion? The double cleanse often starts with an oil or a creamy cleanser followed by a foaming or gently exfoliating cleanser. Why? Oils and creamy cleansers get rid of the things on the surface of the skin, such as sebum and makeup. To follow up that, we need something that will target the smaller things that get into the pores- the dirt, bacteria and pollutants- which is where your foaming cleanser, or exfoliating cleanser comes in.

The most common mistake people make with cleansing, is using a product that is too harsh for they're skin (soaps are a no no, Iv done a previous blog post on this).

Regardless of your single or double cleansing routine- finding the right lotion,gel,foam,oil or water that best suits your skin is KEY. Everyones skin is different. Having a skin therapist look at your skin and choosing the correct one for you will help your skin alot.

Any questions ask me.
Happy Cleansing!
