They say that good skin is the foundation for good appearance. The face is a person’s front line to the world, which is why people pay extra attention to this specific body part when it comes to care and maintenance. This is evident in how the beauty care industry generates a good amount of income year after year.
Just like the fast-paced world of technology, skin care fads pop out every now and then with the promise of providing better looks. Even the world’s most trusted dermatologists all nod in agreement that finding a product that works for a person’s specific skin type is like finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Double cleansing is not new at all, but it is only recently that this process has been gaining attention. True to its name, it means washing the face twice, but using two products in different forms. Lazy girls might find the extra effort a challenge, but trust that this works especially for those who wear makeup during the day.
Double cleansing involves an oil based cleanser intended to remove hard to erase products such as your ever trusted waterproof mascara and long-lasting foundation. This is like removing the first layer of unwanted elements that can possibly clog the pores if not removed thoroughly.
There will be hesitations for some about using oil on the face especially for those who have very oily and acne prone skin. However, the majority of makeup is oil based and using water to clear them from the face won’t be sufficient.
The second part of double cleansing includes a gentle facial cleanser. After removing all the makeup and unwanted oil-based products that was on the skin through an oil-based cleanser, rinse the face and proceed to using a foaming wash. The face wash will then target oxidized sebum and other water based dirt like dust and sweat. Use your finger tips and go for a gentle massage to avoid traumatizing the skin.
The process might seem to be high maintenance, but it’s really simple. Double cleansing is recommended at night, before bed time, as doing it twice a day may cause irritation especially for those who have extra sensitive skin.
