It’s twice as nice.
If there is one thing I love more than washing my hair (I know, you know), it’s washing my face. Nothing beats the feeling of clean skin. I first heard about double cleansing at a press breakfast last week (I know, do I live under a rock?). My ears immediately perked up when I hear the words. Say what? Washing my face not once, but twice?! I can have my cake and eat it too!!
Double cleansing isn’t anything new (google it, you’ll see it’s been a part of Japanese skin care routines for years). The first step focuses on removing makeup and the second step is really about cleansing your skin. Start with an oil based cleanser (we’ve talked about them before, remember?) and remove your makeup. Treat yo’ self to a face massage while you do it. Emulsify the oil with water and rinse it away. Next, grab your everyday cleanser and get to work. Your makeup is already gone, so now you’ll be getting the deep clean your skin deserves. I did it last night and I could immediately tell a difference.
Have you tried double cleansing? Thoughts?
