double cleanse your way to healthy skin
Dust, pollution, grime, makeup, excess oil -- our skin goes through a lot. Given how hectic, stressful and busy our lives have become with lifestyles that have gone haywire (no thanks to the pandemic) it’s time up our skin care game. Cleansing is the most critical step in a home skin care routine -- unless your skin is clean of impurities, no skin care product or treatment will work effectively. To ensure your skin is truly squeaky clean, we recommend you start double cleansing.
With double cleansing, instead of just washing your face, you add a precleansing oil or balm to really get all the dirt out. Here’s how you can start your new skin care routine STAT:
Step 0: As we continue to wear masks while summer comes hurtling towards us, our skin now needs a little extra TLC. Add a Precleanse Oil or a Precleanse Balm to your routine that will help remove makeup, dirt, sweat and excess oils from deep inside your pores.
Step 1: Choose a cleanser suited to your skin type as the next step to healthy, clean skin.
Find a cleanser perfect for your skin.
Step 2: Exfoliating helps remove the dead cells on your skin and unclogs your pores to prevent acne and breakouts. Opt for a gentle exfoliant such as the Daily Microfoliant, which contains rice bran extract and is gentle enough to use daily, leaving you with visibly brighter, smoother skin.
Step 3: Next up, use your trusty toner to balance out your skin’s pH level and prep it for the next step.
Step 4: No matter what your skin type is, never skip moisturising. In fact, your best bet is to choose a medium-weight moisturizer with a built-in SPF, even when you’re at home, such as the Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 moisturizer, or a lightweight one like the Oil Free Matte SPF30, which give you the benefits of two products in one.
