Dermalway Wellness : Beauty Tips

A very common habit when it comes to cleansing is to jump directly into your cleansing routine with the deep cleanser, sometimes relying on it to also remove your make-up. How many times have you done that? The purpose of cleansing is not only to remove  make-up and dirt from the surface of the skin but also to deeply clean your pores and also to nourish the deeper layers of your skin. This is why you need 2 cleansers for this job.
Why is double cleansing important?
In a professional facial a beautician always has 2 cleansers, often referred to as a cleanser and a facial wash/ deep cleanser. The first cleanser has the role of removing the oil base dirt from your skin so that the deep cleanser can actually penetrate the skin and properly clean the pores.
There are 2 types of dirt that accumulate on your skin: oil based dirt (such as oxidized sebum and make-up) and water-based dirt (like dust and sweat). Chemistry tells us that water doesn’t mix with oil meaning that you can’t remove oil base dirt with a water based cleanser (like most of the gel or foaming cleansers). What do you need to do then? First remove the oil based dirt with an oil or milk cleanser as oil dissolves oil.
If not properly removed oil dirt can act as a barrier against whatever you put on your skin, thus the deep cleanser won’t be able to penetrate your skin and clean your pores from debris and impurities. That’s why in order to maximize the effect of your deep cleanser, make sure that it can reach your skin by removing the oil barrier.
