At Jersey Beauty, we love the concept of the double cleanse. Yes, that is exactly how it sounds, you cleanse twice.
It’s not that your cleanser isn’t good enough to do the job the first time round. Here is the thinking behind the concept…
When you cleanse your skin the first time, you are removing surface dirt, grime and excess oil. Let’s face it, if you are going to spend time putting your make-up on, you should really spend time taking it off.
Then the second cleanse can get deep into the pores and leave your skin really clean. Any serums or moisturisers you then put on your skin can penetrate and work their magic much more efficiently.
So where to start?
Dermalogica Precleanse is a great choice for a gentle first cleanse. Precleanse is an oil based cleanser… now you may be thinking, if I have oily skin surely the last thing I need is an oil based cleanser? Actually, oil attracts oil. So this Olive and Apricot Kernel-based cleansing oil starts to attract surface oil as soon as it hits your skin. You gently apply it onto dry skin, where the oil catches dirt and grime and excess makeup too. Then when you add water, the cleanser emulsifies, gently but effectively rinsing away all that excess oil and grime, leaving your skin feeling soft and refreshed.
Double cleansing will also brighten any dullness, ultimately lifting your complexion.
Sounds great hey?!
If you have never tried a double cleanse before, why not give it a go.
