Can we just take a moment to say that we cannot believe there has yet to be a blog post totally dedicated to DOUBLE CLEANSING on The Skinny Confidential.
We’ve for sure touched on it before but it’s time for this incredible skin hack to have a blog post of its own. It’s pretty simple, is super quick to do, and trust us, your skin is going to feel so clean and nourished.
HOW TO DOUBLE CLEANSE
♡ WHAT YOU’LL NEED
+ very soft baby washcloth (grab a basket, display them rolled up on your bathroom counter, make it pretty, give them their own moment)
+ warm water and your regular cleanser
♡ STEP BY STEP
+ apply your oil of choice to the palm of your hands and evenly massage it into your face (this is a good opportunity to give yourself a couple minutes of manual facial massage).
+ really work it in so all of your makeup and environmental buildup ‘loosens’ from your skin.
+ next, take your clean baby washcloth and run it under warm water. Then use it to remove all the now dirty oil from your face.
+ once your oil is removed, cleanse your face as you normally would and continue with your skincare routine.
♡ WHY WE LOVE IT
+ it’s a gentle way to clean your skin VERY THOROUGHLY
+ it leaves your skin hydrated.
+ oil really really helps remove dark eye makeup.
+ it’s perfect in the summer when we have excess buildup of sweat, oil, sunscreen, makeup and environmental buildup from being outdoors more.
+ super clean skin means that our exfoliants, serums, masks and moisturizers are way more efficient
If you’re into skin and have yet to try double-cleansing, we want to know what you think so let us know in the comments. So many brands are doing cleansing balms and oils these days, so you can’t really go wrong. Try out a few and see what you like. As we said, we’re big fans of a natural oil like jojoba or rosehip, but Elemis, Drunk Elephant and Biossance are all good ones too.
