We may not be cleansing our skin as effectively as we think. Cleansing is the first and most important step of our skincare routine but a lot of people don't cleanse well, which inhibits the ingredients in our serums and moisturizers from penetrating enough to do the real work.
Have you heard of the double cleanse? It’s a Korean-inspired cleansing technique gaining popularity in the U.S. Essentially, you’re cleansing your face twice, which deep cleans; and with the right cleansers, you won’t strip and dry your skin. Thus, revealing a more radiant you!
Start with a cleansing oil, such as STEM CELLULAR™ Cleansing Oil, which balances natural oils while cleansing with organic resveratrol-rich grapeseed, may chang, ho wood and sunflower seed oils. The truth is that oil attracts oil, better dissolving and removing makeup than your standard facial wash alone. Simply apply the oil on dry skin, massage in a circular motion, and then add water for a light emulsion before rinsing.
Follow with a face wash for your skin type. We recommend our Cleansing Milk or our Stem Cellular 2-in-1 Cleanser this Winter both of which will give you a rich and emollient cleanse and remove any impurities left behind. Plus, they're chock-full of antioxidants from organic ingredients to help fight daily exposure to potentially harmful toxins in the environment.
After the second cleanse, rinse with water, or use an organic cotton or bamboo cleansing cloth to help avoid exposure to pesticides and proceed with your serum and moisturizer.
The result? Clean, hydrated, and renewed skin!
