78. The dish on double cleansing

Updated: Mar 21

This week Dermalogica have launched their newest innovation... a two-in-one cleanser, last month they launched the Micellar Precleanse. A thorough cleanse is important to clear skin... I was on a hen do last week and one of the ladies reached out saying her skin is a mess that it's lumpy, spotty and HELP! What would I recommend and how can she improve her skincare regime... my reply - a thorough double cleanse. It's the beginning of the summer season and we're reapplying sun protection throughout the day (hopefully!!) and ideally wanting to be more 'fresh faced' rather than layered in makeup.  Skincare is an essential part of our daily routine, and many already follow a simple cleanse, tone, moisturise regime every morning and night.  This basic regime is great to have in place, but it is important to do it properly. 

Research by the International Dermal Institute found that 'women only spend about 20 seconds washing their face.'

For thoroughly clean skin it is advisable to use a double cleanse routine such as Precleanse by Dermalogica which is made from apricot kernel and kukui nut oil, the oil helps draw oil, impurities and makeup away from the skin. Then use a second cleanser to suit your specific skin type- foaming, cream, etc. Each cleanser should be massaged into the skin for 60 seconds. Count as you massage your face in gentle upward strokes 1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi until your reach 60 then remove the product with a warm damp flannel or sponge. 

The environment is much dirtier now than it used to be in our parents and grandparents era because there are so many more pollutants, types of makeup, sunscreen, etc. The face is exposed to everything everyday and a quick 20 second cleanse won't cut through the dirt, oil and makeup on your skin. If your skin isn't properly cleansed then the moisturiser can't penetrate to the skin properly and a dull appearance then starts to become congested. Exfoliating can help, but start with a good basic regime and build on that to maximise glowing healthy skin. 

This new cleanser is like precleanse and special cleansing gel in one!! It's a transformative oil to foam cleanser that removes make up, sunscreen, and pollution while cleansing skin in one step for ultra-clean, healthy-looking skin. Oil to foam cleanser is a dual make up remover and cleanser that starts as a golden gel-oil infused with Sea Buckthorn Oil; massage into skin to melt away layers of make up, sebum (oil), and sunscreen. Add a splash of water to transform the gel-oil into a rich foamy to wash away debris and any remaining impurities. This foaming cleanser with a plant-derived prebiotic leaves skin feeling instantly soft and smooth.

This two in one formula is fantastic for travel, sports, after gym use and an 'on the go' lifestyle. You only need to pack one cleanser that does it all... make sure you double cleanse with it for squeaky clean skin. Then remember to spritz, apply a serum and moisturise. If you're using it in the morning please wear an spf 30+ to protect your skin against ultraviolet rays that cause pigmentation, lines and sunburn.
