CLEANSING – HOW TO.
Cleansing is Korean Beauty Routine’s basis for a clear complexion and can prevent blemishes, enlarged pores and signs of aging. Moreover having a very cleaned up skin is essential to really absorb serums and moisturizes into the skin and not sit on top of buildup.
All About the Double Cleanse Method:
Korean women use a Double Cleanse method that ensures skin can better absorb skincare products to follow. In fact, the first cleanse employs oil/balm based cleanser to remove oil-based impurities such as sebum, residue from moisturizers and sunscreens, pollutants as well as makeup.
The second cleanse employs water-based cleanser to remove any last traces of grime, it goes deeper into the skin and helps to completely remove any last traces of buildup so you’re left with a completely clean canvas.
Is Double Cleanse necessary even if you are not wearing makeup?
The answer is yes, it surely is.
Deep cleansing is always a green light, because washing off the dirt that you’ve been exposed to over the day, moisturizer and sunscreen’s residues, is important for your skin’s health.
Moreover, you should not fear of Double Cleanse.Unlike Western Beauty regimens that focus more on restoring original skin settings, Korean Beauty routine is all about preventing. This means that cleansers are specifically intended for delicate skin, so they will never harm your skin.
As mentioned in our Korean skincare post, a good starting point for an oil/balm based cleanser is Neogen Real Cleansing Stick Green Tea , a 3 in 1 – cleanser, that peels and tones the skin thanks to the exfoliating power of green tea leaves.
