Yesterday I had the chance to pop in Soho for a bit & visit @charlottejcho pop up @thenimetyou I definitely had a magical experience, and had free mango sorbet on the house! 🍨 😋 I stumbled upon this cute frame & it inspired me to write this post!!Double cleansing, let’s talk about it!
I can’t stress how important it is to remove makeup,dirt and pollutants that have accumulated on your skin during the day before catching some Zzz! 😴 not cleansing your skin properly or not even removing your make up at all is a big no no! 🙅🏻♀️It can cause major breakouts from bacteria spreading onto the skin and clogging pores, and yes that may even lead to painful cysts as well! So what is Double Cleansing? It is a two-step cleansing process.
Step☝🏻:Will always begin with an oil based cleanser to breakdown + remove the oils from your make up,excess sebum & sunscreen(including waterproof make up). Oil based cleansers contain emulsifying ingredients so they can rinse off cleanly. Apply to dry skin, massage in gently in upward circular motions and rinse off with water.(I use luke warm)
Step✌🏻: thoroughly removes any remaining dirt,oil and residue left behind after you’ve removed your make up and gets deeper into the pores.This cleanser is water based 💦& can be either foaming,creamy or gel. It is also important to choose a cleanser tailored for your skin type and specific needs as everyone’s skin is different!! I also advise cleansing for a minute as you will give it time for the ingredients to be functional on the skin!
A clean canvas will aid in better product absorption as well, a cleaner canvas the better! It really can be the determining factor on the efficacy on your other powerhouse skin care products that come after! If you’re not properly cleansing, you’re actually applying beneficial and even pricy ingredients on top of build up & remaining make-up on your skin! Your skin would not be able to breath & properly repair itself at night, it’s called beauty sleep for a reason!!😉💆🏻♀️ I will be sharing my double cleansing routine with you guys following post,stay tuned 😘#skincare #esthetician #sokoglam #beauty #skincarejunkie #doublecleanse #beauty #soho
