Cleansing is always the first step of your skincare routine. And it’s also the foundation. It’s what sets the stage for effectiveness of all the other skincare products you use. We want you to be aware how important cleansing really is, and we suggest you spend a little more time doing it, while making you’re selecting the right products for not just cleansing but cleansing the proper way.

Believe it or not, a lot of people don’t really know how to properly wash their face. They’ll admit they never really gave it much thought – and some even say they don’t even bother. They just flop into bed without washing their face at all. And we get it. We’ve all been there on nights when we’ve had a few drinks, or are just otherwise exhausted – and the thought of spending even 5 more minutes awake to wash your face is sometimes out of the question.

Introducing The Double Cleanse

Cleansing and cleansing thoroughly are two very different things. Splashing water on your face and rubbing it with a towel is not cleansing at all (sorry guys). As women, we are obsessed with how to properly cleanse our skin because we know this is the first step and most important step to the final goal – a dewy, soft glow. A proper cleanse is a double cleanse, which means start first with an oil-based cleanser, then go a second round with a water-based cleanser. We know what you’re thinking. “You’re saying I have to wash my face twice?”

As trained estheticians, we spent a lot of time discussing the double cleanse at work and in beauty school. And many high-level dermatologists recommend the double cleanse too. First remove your eye and lip make up. An oil-based product will work best as it will be the healthiest for your skin. Stinging is never a sign that something is working. What it really means is the body doesn’t get along with it.

The first cleanse is the oil cleanse. Oil cleansers can be a godsend for oily, sensitive, and acne prone skin. At Colibri Day Spa, we offer the same pre-cleanse in our beauty shop as we provide with our award-winning facials. The Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse (5.1 oz for $45) fortified with Borage Seed, Kukui, and Apricot oils, will be your new beauty secret as the cleansing ingredients will melt away impurities and makeup from your skin. We love this product so much – we highly recommend you give it a try. We absolutely love the results!

For your second cleanse – be sure you apply The Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel (1.7 oz for $15). This soap-free, foaming gel cleanses all skin conditions. Refreshing lather removes impurities, without disturbing the skin’s natural moisture balance. This iconic cleanser which contains naturally foaming Quillaja Saponaria, gently rinses away toxins and debris to leave your skin feeling smooth and clean.
