What is double cleansing?

If you’re not sure what we’re going on about, double cleansing involves using a cleansing oil, balm or micellar water to break down make-up, dirt and pollutants on the surface of your skin first, then following it with a second cleanse. A second cleanse will clean much deeper into the pores to remove any impurities. Double cleansing your skin at night is so important to get rid of the days build up.


What are the benefits of double cleansing?

A quick wash might seem like the only option at the end of a long day, but if you wear a full face of make-up, double cleansing is a necessity. One cleanse will do nothing to properly get rid of foundation and pollution and if all of that is left on your skin overnight, you aren’t giving your skin cells the best chance at regenerating which means no plump, youthful complexion for you.

Double cleansing each evening will also help to brighten any dullness, while lifting the complexion.

This second cleanse will also allow for serums and moisturisers to penetrate and work much more effectively while you sleep which is when your skin repairs itself and skin cells regenerate.
