Wake Up With Gorgeous Skin With This One Cleansing Trick
If you think you have the perfect skin care routine, we salute you. Consistency is what’s most important when it comes to skin care. Nevertheless even the most diligent skin care fanatic can try something new from time to time right? Prepare to have your mind blown when it comes to cleansing your face. Today we’re introducing you to double cleansing, an effective way to ensure your skin is squeaky clean before you go to bed. We’re giving you the scoop on this beautifying technique below.
What Is Double Cleansing?
The name says it all — upgrade your skin care routine to cleanse your face not just once but twice. This skin care phenomenon originates in Asia (historical texts in China, Korea and Japan show this process being performed by women) and dates back as far as the 14th century. Back then women removed thick layers of face powders and paints with the use of cleansing oils, followed by a foaming cleanser. The process hasn’t altered much; today it’s also typically a facial cleansing oil that’s applied first to remove make up or residue. Then a gentle foaming cleanser is applied to the skin and massaged to remove any remaining impurities from skin. Double cleansing provides a more effective cleansing experience than just washing your face once, which can still leave behind build-up and makeup traces on your skin.
Why Is It Effective?
Double cleansing ensures that your skin is truly clean. It also makes sure that whatever you apply after cleansing — serum, dark spot corrector, moisturizer can work better.
How To Incorporate Double Cleansing In Your Skin Care Routine
Use a facial oil cleanser or micellar water (which is made up water-soluble lipid molecules) to remove your make up. Garnier SkinActive’s Micellar Cleansing Water is a make up remover, all-in-1 cleanser, and compatible with all skin types. Next use a foaming cleanser and gently work onto your skin in an upward motion without tugging or pulling, then wash it off. Your skin will be clean of cosmetics, sebum, sweat and dirt. Then apply your moisturizer of choice and you’re ready for bed.
