Are you tired of those stubborn traces of makeup and sunscreen that just won't budge? It's time to discover the secret that beauty enthusiasts swear by: double cleansing.
But what exactly is double cleansing?
Double cleansing is a skincare method that involves using two different cleansers in your evening skincare routine. The first cleanser is oil-based, while the second is water-based. This two-step approach effectively removes all traces of makeup, sunscreen, impurities, and excess oil from your skin, ensuring a deep and thorough cleanse.
Who Needs to Double Cleanse and Why?
1. Makeup Enthusiasts: If you're a fan of makeup, especially long-wear or waterproof products, double cleansing is your best friend. The oil-based cleanser effortlessly dissolves makeup, even stubborn mascara and lipstick, while the water-based cleanser ensures no residue is left behind.
2. Sunscreen Lovers: Sunscreens, especially those with high SPF ratings, are designed to adhere to your skin and provide long-lasting protection. However, this can make them challenging to remove with a single cleanse. Double cleansing ensures that every trace of sunscreen is thoroughly removed, preventing clogged pores and breakouts.
3. Those in Urban Environments: If you live in a city or urban area, your skin is exposed to pollution and environmental impurities daily. Double cleansing is an effective way to remove these harmful particles, leaving your skin clean and fresh.
4. Everyone Seeking Clearer Skin: Double cleansing isn't just for makeup wearers. It's suitable for anyone who wants clearer, healthier skin. By removing impurities more effectively, double cleansing can help reduce breakouts, minimize the appearance of pores, and improve overall skin texture.
How to Use Oat Mighty Cleansing Balm for Double Cleansing
Step 1: The Oil-Based Cleanse with Oat Mighty Cleansing Balm
Scoop & Warm: Using the provided spatula, take a small amount of Oat Mighty Cleansing Balm and rub it between your fingertips to warm it. This helps the balm melt into an oil-like consistency.
Apply to Dry Skin: Gently massage the balm onto your dry face, focusing on areas with makeup, sunscreen, or impurities. The balm will begin to dissolve these products.
Massage & Emulsify: Using circular motions, massage the balm over your face. As you continue massaging, the balm will emulsify into a milky texture, effectively lifting away impurities.
Rinse: Finally, rinse your face with lukewarm water. The Oat Mighty Cleansing Balm will emulsify and wash away, leaving your skin clean and refreshed.
Step 2: The Water-Based Cleanse
After using Oat Mighty Cleansing Balm, follow up with your regular water-based cleanser to ensure a complete and thorough cleanse. Apply the water-based cleanser, lather, and rinse according to its instructions.
Step 3: Enjoy how clean your skin feels!
