Double Cleansing - A Must For All Skin Types

By | Wednesday, March 15, 2017 Leave a Comment
You're lazy. I know.

You're tired. I know.

You just don't have time. Make time!

The majority of the time I sleep on white or cream bedsheets, which requires me to be a fairly clean person if I intend to keep them stain free. For the most part, I've managed to keep my sheets clean, but a few times I've woken up to foundation or mascara stains on my pillowcase. I definitely cleansed my face before bed, but there always seemed to be some residue left over. Well, now I have the trick to get your face completely cleansed and save your pillowcases. Double Cleansing!

Cleansing Oils

Try not to run screaming in the other direction. I know that some of us have oily and acne prone skin to begin with. Cleansing oils aren't greasy and they solubilize oil-based products such as foundations and mascaras. That means that regular foaming cleansers aren't really suitable for the tough job of removing makeup while remaining gentle on the skin. Try these cleansing oils.
