The Importance of a Double Cleanse

Double cleanse the day away

Why is it important?

A good cleanser is vital to skin health. But it doesn’t always get all of the grime and makeup off in one go. This is why we at skin therapy of charlotte recommend a double cleanse! According to an article in Elle Magazine  “double cleansing involves using a cleansing oil, balm or micellar water to break down make-up, SPF and sebum on the surface of your skin first, then following it with a deeper water-based cleanse.” We believe even double cleansing with your cleanser twice is fine for removing makeup, etc. But we have products we recommend for the perfect double cleanse!

We have you covered

After a facial, our estheticians will match you with the perfect cleanser, but they will also match you with the perfect pre-cleanse! Here are a few of the products we love for you initial cleanse and why;

Colorescience – Hydrating Cleansing Cloths

These are perfect for getting that makeup off with convenience. Use the smooth side to rid your skin of impurities and oil. Use the textured side to scrub away waterproof makeup and mineral products. Both sides will cleanse your face from the pollution that gathered throughout the day.  Our favorite ingredients in here are coconut extract and hyaluronic acid for hydration. White tea and green tea leaf extract to protect skin. Aloe vera, cucumber extract and chamomile will calm and soothe your skin!

It has anti-inflammatory and hydrating ingredients (green tea leaf extract and lavender oil) that will leave your skin soft and smooth. You’ll want to use a cotton pad/round with this, saturate and sweep over your face. For heavy eye makeup, hold over your eye for a few seconds and then swipe that stubborn makeup away.
