The double cleanse is the cleansing method invented by beauticians to insure beautiful looking, clear skin. It involves washing your face in two steps, first by using an oil-based cleanser, followed by a water-based cleanser. The first step draws out oil-based impurities such as sebum, SPF, and pollutants while the second step cleanses water-based debris such as sweat and dirt (Unfortunately cleansing tissues won't do the job well!) Get started on the double cleanse to prevent breakouts and start with a clean canvas for skincare and makeup!
This cleansing method can be used by absolutely anyone, even people with oily skin. Sure, oil cleanser has a thick consistency, but that doesn’t mean it feels heavy on your skin or will clog your pores. It will also not make your oily skin any oiler, in fact the complete opposite is true. Oil cleansing will deeply clean your pores without stripping your natural skin barrier and result in healthy, glowing skin. Luxury Cleansing Balm is a balm-like oil cleanser that completely removes the heaviest makeup and SPF and leaves skin feeling clean and fresh. It’s also hypoallergenic, which means it’s great for sensitive skin. We love it because it effectively cleanses but also retains essential oils that help keep your skin properly moisturized.
Due to its thicker, balmy formula, the Luxury Cleansing Balm needs to be warmed up in your hand and massaged all over the face. Massaging the face has myriad benefits: firstly, it stimulates the natural production of collagen in your skin – so you’ll have bouncy, plump skin in no time! It also increases circulation and boosts blood production. Lack of circulation, whether caused by sleep, air pollutants, or a less-than-ideal diet, can lead to skin looking pale, dull, and puffy. Luckily, a quick massage stimulates the face’s lymphatic system, meaning freshly oxygenated blood and the nutrients it carries can flow more easily around the skin, which leaves you with a rosy glow! Luxury Cleansing Balm is packed with beneficial plant oils, like rose fruit oil, olive oil, wild mint oil, jojoba oil, orange peel oil and clove leaf oil that are packed with anti-oxidants and powerful skin strengthening ingredients. Using this balm is like a treatment to your skin. After massaging the cleanser, place one of the Bamboo Face Cloths under hot water and after wringing, place the hot cloth over your face to warm and open your pores. Gently remove the residue of the balm and follow on with your second cleanse.
Not only are our Bamboo Face Cloths organic, they are reusable and very kind for the environment. They are a great way to encourage gentle exfoliation in your daily routine and such a pleasure to use.
If your skin is dry or normal, follow the first cleanse up with Micellar Lotion to remove any residue of the first cleanse and keep your skin moisturised and glowing. If your skin is on the oilier side, follow this first cleanse up with the Anti-Imperfection Cleansing Gel, which is a water-based cleanser, to remove any residue of the first cleanse, balance oil production and prevent breakouts.
