It was only recently after talking to friends that I realised I ‘double cleanse’ and it appears not everyone does this. How can you not, one cleanse is not enough for me to remove the days makeup plus the dirt that’s build up underneath – however I do wear a fair amount of makeup so that might be why.
There are a lot of pros and cons to double cleaning the main issue being that too much can take away all the natural oils from the surface of the skin leaving it dry and ever more prone to breakouts.
It my case an initial cleanse will remove most make up but there is still residue and dirt left that does need clearing away so I need to be careful if the products I use. Below is my double cleanse routine and the products I use on a daily basis.
Superdrug Tea Tree Foaming Facial Wash
This is the starting product, there are millions of face washes. I use this for the benefits of tea tree oils, famous for its antibacterial qualities, also the peppermint oil which really refreshes my skin so it feels lovely and clean after a long day and wakes me up in the morning.
Superdrug B. Pure Micellar Water
Micellar water is a quick, simple and gentle way to remove excess make up and impurities. It also tones and refreshes. For me I don’t feel fully cleansed without it, I know my skin it prepared for nigh time or to start the day once used. Why B. Pure specifically? I know it’s gentle and anything cruelty free is a huge bonus.
That is simply how I get my skin completely clean in the most delicate way possible to begin and end the day. I finish this off with Dr Organinc eye cream to keep the under eyes looking youthful and banish the dark circles, the Dr Organic Rose moisturiser day/ night to replenish any moisture lost to give my skin the best care possible.
