All About Double Cleansing

Many people are just convinced that using makeup causes acne. This may be true for some but research shows a lot of different stances. You may think that your acne is affected by the products you use but this is a majorly different segment. Makeup does very little for your skin. Many skin influencers claim that a combination between makeup and skincare is the right fit for products, however, it is important to realize that makeup may clog pores.

Initially, people had a very vague idea of makeup. They thought that leaving the product on the skin was fine. Some even thought that by just washing your face, you get rid of any sort of makeup and dust. It is funny to note that makeup sits on your skin and is known to damage the skin barrier. Thus, it is important that you properly cleanse the skin and ensure that you get rid of any impurities on the skin. Furthermore, with the advancement in skincare, it is important to realize that makeup is only removed when it is double-cleansed. Double cleansing is the art of cleansing your face twice. Once by using micellar water or a cleansing balm and then using a cleanser.

A cleansing balm has a very unique texture. It is known to remove all impurities. Many cleansing balms are fat or oil-absorbing. They ensure that the balm sinks deep down the skin and removes all the impurities from the skin. Using a good cleanser is the key to a successful good cleanse. Once when you have removed all your makeup you can easily use a gentle foaming cleanser to remove any remaining buildup or makeup. This ensures that no makeup is left behind to clog your pores or make you feel uncomfortable with your skin.
