Our Master Esthetician Taylor is going to work you through her process of double cleansing, and is going to share some common cleansing do's and don'ts!
Do: Always apply product in upward motions.
Don't: Saturate face with water during first cleansing. Apply only when needed.
Do: Add water rather than more cleanser. Adding more product can create a more dry consistency when cleansing, while water allows the product to emulsify.
Don't: Don't forget to cleanse your hair line, neck and behind your ears.
Do: Be gentle cleansing around your eyes, making sure not to rub a pad too hard on the sensitive area.
Don't: Don't be afraid to use your pads to get some of your eye make up off, just make sure to use downward motions. The pads will most likely not remove all the makeup on your eyes, so make sure you remove any additional eye make up separately.
Do: For double cleansing, feel free to use a silicone scrubber to remove any excess makeup or product from the skin.
Don't: Skip toner after your cleansing routine. Toner helps make sure all makeup is removed from the skin and prepares the skin for serums and moisturizers.
