What is a double cleanse?

At Balance Me, we know it’s key to exercise a good skincare regime. Double cleansing is not only the best way to remove the build up of make-up and daily grime, but also the perfect way to prepare and prime your skin to easily absorb your serum and moisturiser. Double cleansing requires two different cleansers and in its simplest form, it means using a make-up removing product first, followed by a second, deeper cleanse that will condition the skin.

But why do I need to cleanse twice?

Your inner-cynic may believe that using a face wipe followed by washing your face is enough, but for truly glowing skin (the kind that is usually only seen after a professional facial!) this requires throughly removing impurities. The first cleanse is essential to effectively break down oily dirt, such as make-up and sebum, along with environmental toxins and impurities. The secondary cleanse will then address your skincare concerns; tackling blemishes, oil or dryness and leaving the complexion clean, primed and ready for the next stage of your skincare routine. 

What is the best method?

Step one is the first cleanse. Break down make-up and dirt quickly with our Flash Cleanse Micellar Water. Ideal for all skin types it’s much kinder to your skin (and the environment) than using face wipes. Apply two pumps onto cotton pads and gently wipe over a dry face until all make-up is removed - no rinsing required! With the calming ingredients Pea Peptide and Chamomile, our Micellar Water has the added bonus of promoting natural collagen production, along with soothing the skin thanks to its anti-inflammatory benefits.  

Step two is the second cleanse. This will ensure all impurities are removed whilst conditioning the skin with a deeper, more thorough cleanse. The perfect partner to the Flash Cleanse Micellar Water is our Restore and Replenish Cream Cleanser. Also part of our Collagen Boost range, this will improve natural collagen production as well as boost hydration and radiance. The presence of Hyaluronic Acid, which holds 1000 times its weight in water, makes this a great cleanser for locking in moisture. To use the second cream cleanser, simply massage a small amount onto dry skin using fingers or a cotton pad. Then just add a little water, and continue to massage into the face. Next simply remove the residue with cotton pads, a muslin cloth, or water depending on your preference.

The skin is now perfectly cleansed and primed to enhance the performance of your serum and moisturiser!
