The Importance Of Double Cleansing
There are three bits of skincare advice I will always stand by:
- Always use an SPF during the day
- Take fish oil capsules
- Double cleanse when you wash your face
The importance of double cleansing is one of the first things I was taught when doing my beauty therapy training and it’s easy to see why. Try it for yourself tonight and see how much more dirt, oil and make up comes off on your facial cloth when you double cleanse. You’re cleanser is able to penetrate deeper and do its job far more effectively once you’ve already cleared away most of the grime! The result? Beautiful, clearer looking skin.
To double cleanse your skin simply apply your cleanser like you usually would and dip a flannel in some warm, but not hot, water. Wring the flannel out and use this to wipe away the cleanser. Splash your face with warm water and pat dry before repeating the procedure again.
Personally, I prefer to use a facial cloth as opposed to a muslin cloth when cleansing. They hold heat better and have a slightly more abrasive texture as opposed to a muslin cloth meaning it does its job better at removing dead skin cells, sebum and make up.
Whether your skin is perfect or playing up, it can benefit from a good double cleanse. Try it tonight and see the results for yourself!
