Chances are you’ve heard of double cleansing–the art of cleansing your face twice using an oil-based cleanser to first break down any dirt and oil on the skin, and then applying a water-based herbal toner to deeply cleanse and gently exfoliate. Together this process preps your skin for maximum absorption of serums, creams, and masks. What’s not to love right? But if you still haven’t tried double cleansing, then we’ve got the perfect solution for you––Mini Deep Pore Cleansing Duos formulated for every skin type, just in time to treat yourself for Valentine’s Day. Let’s break down some facts and benefits of double cleansing and how you’ll fall in love with these little skincare gifts. XOXO.
Fact #1: It’s Worth the Time
If you spend time putting makeup on, it makes sense to take the time to remove it. So, if you are cleansing already, why not add one extra, yet simple step to make sure your pores and skin are as clean as they can possibly be. Studies show people only spend on average about 20 seconds washing their face, which isn’t enough time to allow any sort of cleanser to work. Just like brushing your teeth, consider increasing your wash time to two minutes. Cleansing duos help you make the most of that extra time. The reality is if you leave any trace of makeup on overnight, you are not giving your skin a chance to regenerate, meaning you might as well say goodbye to glowing skin.
Fact #2: Your Skin Will Benefit
There are two very important benefits to double cleansing that make a big impact. Double cleansing brightens the skin by including an exfoliating step that will gently get rid of all those dead skin cells that keep your skin from glowing. And it will also allow your other skincare products to work much more effectively. The process attacks all potential issues such as pollution, makeup, sweat, and grime.
Fact #3: Skin Type Matters
Everyone’s skin is unique, so using products that are a good match for your skin type is important in achieving your overall skincare goals. You may think you know your skin type, but if you truly want to see results, you need to understand the natural characteristics your skin displays. For example, those with oily skin will find that using a dual cleanser that is formulated just for their issues will equalize oil production and reduce the appearance of large pores. Or take those who are acne-prone. Double cleansing can help remove bacteria that leads to breakouts, while also soothing inflamed and irritated skin.
