There is a new way of cleansing your face that beauty experts swear by: Double Cleansing. So what exactly is this buzz all about, and does it take twice as long? People are making bold claims about it taking years off their faces, or that it helped maintain a dewy complexion. If your skin is pretty cooperative, then we highly recommend you give this method a try. If your skin is temperamental or in cases of cystic acne we suggest you skip double cleansing.
So, heres how it works. Start with coconut oil, making sure it is cold pressed and organic because you don’t want to be massaging pesticides into your face. We especially like this Fijian VCO. Start by massaging a dime sized amount of oil into your skin using your fingertips in downward circular motion. You can apply a warm washcloth to achieve some steam and moisture over your face for deeper penetration. After a few minutes, use your natural cleanser to wash off the residue while focusing on areas like your T-zone. That’s it, you’re done!
The idea of applying oil to your face scares most people and sounds counterintuitive, but it’s not. You might even see a few black/white heads surface a few days later which is a good thing as your skin clears itself of debris below the surface. They will stop coming, and what is left will be dewy, balanced skin.
