Double Cleansing

The practice of double cleansing could even be traced back in Japan's earlier beauty routines where double cleansing was born out of necessity to effectively help remove and clean the white paint-like facial makeup that was a popular earlier make-up trend across Japan.

The objective of the double cleansing routine is supposed to achieve completely squeaky clean removal of makeup, dirt and impurities on the skin.  

And this is how: The overall 2-step cleansing system follows the concept of commonly using an oil-based cleanser to do a 1st round of pre-cleansing that dissolves and breaks down any makeup and impurities on the face, followed by and 2nd step of using a water-based cleanser to further ensure complete cleansing of impurities, oils, dirt and makeup from the face.


1st cleanse:

Helps to deliver an initial round of cleansing to breakdown stubborn makeup and dirt on the skin.  Many often use an oil-based cleanser in the 1st cleanse, but there are many micellar water cleansers in the market such as the Neogen Dermalogy Real Flower Cleansing Water for those who don't like the texture of oil like myself.

2nd Cleanse:

Delivers a 2nd and final cleanse using a water-based cleanser to ensure all dirt and impurities are completely removed from the skin and pores through a nice lather.  For sensitive skin types, the Neogen Dermalogy Real Fresh Foam Cleansers are ideal as the gentle and smooth foam texture delivers reduced friction during your cleanse.  


If done correctly, you should not see any make-up stains or residue on your face towels! So if you do see any dirt or makeup stains when drying your face off with a towel after your double cleansing routine, it might mean you need to work on ensuring that each cleansing product is more thoroughly massaged in your 1st and 2nd cleansing steps.

NEO I TRENDING<br>Cleansers + Antioxidants: a match made in heaven

Cleansers + Antioxidants: a match made in heaven

Before falling in love with K-beauty, and way before it changing my life and skin forever, I was a very lazy person when talking skincare routines. I had this 3-steps set my dermatologist prescribed but I was not consistent, and washing my face turned into something controlled by my mood. Now, looking back to those dark days I just can't believe how many times I went to bed with makeup on or applied my treatment cream without first washing my face, something that now just thinking about it makes me feel like I’m inside a horror movie (yes, I’m dramatic like that).

A Spray Serum Can Be The Answer To All Your Winter Skincare Needs

I’ve said it before: my skin is not only combo but also very sensitive, and rosacea + acne prone… yeah, yeah, someone decided to add a little bit of everything during the DNA distribution. Thing is for many years I just catalogued my skin as oily, because I used to think that was my one and only skin concern and that every other problem was a consequence of the oiliness. Oh, how wrong I was.

The one and only sheet mask you need for your winter routine

For the past few years thousands or thousands of new beauty trends have showed up. There are ones that last, others that come and go, but there’s one trend that arrived in this world to stay for eternity: sheet masks. At this point I think we all have tried at least 1 sheet masks in our lives, am I right? There are really simple ones, luxury ones, for brightening, for aging, for wrinkles, for hydration… there’s a sheet mask for everyone and their mothers out there. But there’s so much more to these godsends than just a cotton layer you put on your face and take selfies with.

Let's face it, winter is quickly approaching and not only my wardrobe noticed it but my skin too. I don't know about you but I'm already running through basically a whole bottle of toner a month and don't even get me started on all the mist bottles I’ve used in the past month.
