Lately it seems like every week there is a new beauty trend that you HAVE to try. Whether it is painting on freckles or putting glitter…well anywhere, there is always a new skincare or beauty hack that someone is trying to make famous. Today however I have an old (on the verge of ancient) skincare tip to share with you. I would like to introduce you to the life changing technique, double cleansing.
Double cleansing is more than just washing your face twice. It originated hundreds of years ago in Japan when geishas would need to wash off their heavy makeup (which was more like lead paint) before cleansing their skin. These women would use an oil based cleanser to remove makeup and dirt and then follow up with a water based cleanser to wash their skin. Even though our cosmetic products have come a long way since ancient Japan, double cleansing is still a useful technique to help you reach your ultimate skin potential.
Now is the perfect time to try double cleansing as oils are bigger than ever! We recommend trying our Nourishing Rose Cleansing Oil as your oil based cleanser. This essence of rose cleansing oil dissolves away long-lasting makeup and impurities, while nourishing skin with beautifying oils. Let organic oils such as Jojoba and Argan rid your skin of pollutants, impurities, and dead skin cells while leaving you feeling moisturized and refreshed. Once you have expelled impurities from the surface of your skin you are ready to use a water based cleanser to get a truer clean.
What we find works best with the Nourishing Rose Cleansing Oil is our Sensitive Skin Cleanser with Pycnogenol®. This is the perfect gentle cleanser that works for all skin types. Anti-aging antioxidants Pycnogenol® and Green Tea protect skin while you cleanse. Botanical extracts Chamomile and Lemongrass soothe skin, leaving even the most sensitive skin feeling calm, healthy and refreshed.
Don’t get too excited about trying double cleansing that you forget to use your favorite DERMA E moisturizer afterwards!
