Do I cleanse morning and night? What is double cleansing? We’ve got answers! We lay down everything you need to know about cleansing, and why it’s the foundation of having healthy, beautiful skin.
Cleansing is skincare 101, it’s the first step of your skincare routine and one of the most important. Your face cleanser routine will impact the effectiveness of your entire routine as cleansing allows mists, serums, moisturizers, oils and treatment products to go deeper into your skin and work their magic!
The morning cleanse is a vital part of your routine as our skin undergoes a natural elimination, repair and regeneration process while we sleep. Cleansing in the morning helps to remove dirt, sweat or dead skin cells that have built up overnight.
Having a face cleansing routine at night is an absolute must, especially cleansing before going to bed. An evening cleanse helps to remove dirt, dust, sunscreen, makeup, environmental pollutants and any germs that have built-up on the surface of your skin throughout the day. If we’re not washing away the impurities properly, it could potentially contribute to aging and breakouts.
Double cleansing is an effective way to wash your face at the end of your day to ensure all the impurities are removed.It involves washing your face twice, just like how you shampoo twice, it essentially works the same way.
The first cleanse will breakdown and remove the impurities sitting on the top layer of your skin. Use an oil-based cleanser like our Cream or Gentle Cleanser that houses beautiful essential oils. The second cleanse will help to remove any residue buildup and cleanses deeper into your skin and pores, leaving it feeling fresh and clean, and ready for the next steps!You can choose any one of our three cleansers to use for the second cleanse.
Be sure to listen and look for what your skin needs and double cleanse only when needed.
“One piece of advice you’ll always hear from me is about the importance of cleansing, especially before bed to remove any make up, sunscreen, dirt or environmental pollution. But it’s equally important to ensure you’re using a cleanser that doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils.” – Miranda Kerr
UNDERSTANDING YOUR SKIN'S PH LEVEL
THE RIGHT CLEANSING TEMPERATURE AND TIME
Cleanse for around 30-60 seconds, gently massaging in circular motions with lukewarm water. Water that is cold has less ability to loosen dirt and grime—and water that is too hot can dry out or irritate your skin unnecessarily.
