What exactly is double cleaning?
It is a technique that comes from Asian beauty rituals. And looking at the skin they have there, they will be doing something right! But what does it consist of? Double cleansing consists of two steps to wash the face very well with two different types of product: one oil-based and the other water-based. Its objective is to cleanse the skin in depth, improve its texture and ensure that it can absorb in the best way the subsequent treatments that we apply to it.
Step by step
To do the double cleaning you need two types of products. First, one oil-based and then another water-based. What does this mean? Oil-based products are usually make-up removal oils or balms that manage to wash away all dirt (sweat, makeup and other particles), while water-based products are soaps, cleansing gels or foams. You will know that it is an aqueous product when in its list of ingredients (INCI), the first is Aqua.
A step by step routine
We show you a complete double cleaning routine with Kriim products so you can see what each step consists of in detail!
- Step 1: Apply an oil-based balm to your face. In this case, we will use Rvolut No. 10 Jojoba Cleansing Balm. Massage it on dry skin, including the eye contour, and then rinse it with warm water to transform it into a creamy milk until it disappears completely. With it, you will be able to remove make-up and remove all the dirt from your skin, leaving it hydrated thanks to the moisturizing properties of argan, rice, coconut and jojoba oils.
- Step 2: It is the turn of the aqueous cleanser. We will use Rvolut Nº 8 Natural Cleansing Foam, a facial cleanser without SLSs ideal for all skin types. Apply a small amount to the palm of your hand, add a little water, and lather for a few seconds until a light lather is produced. Then, apply the product with your fingers on the face and rub gently avoiding the eye area. Rinse with water.
- Step 3: Although it is not part of the double cleansing, after washing our face well it is essential to apply a tonic to balance the skin's pH. The No.7 AHA Shiitake Rvolut Tonic reaffirms the skin and restores elasticity thanks to the extract of the Shiitake mushroom, known as the elixir of life. In addition, it increases the synthesis of type I collagen, thus preventing aging.
In conclusion, this Asian beauty technique, in addition to removing all the dirt from the skin of our face, leaving it free of impurities, healthy and reducing blackheads, will leave your skin smooth and soft. So, no more drama! With double cleansing, you will have enviable skin!
