For many women, putting on makeup is part of their daily regimen. A little blush, a few strokes of eye-shadow, and a swatch of lipstick are almost strict requirements for looking more polished and professional. Unless you’re using waterproof makeup, the whole lot just washes off while you’re in the shower and the towel stays clean when you dry your face. Your face is now free of cosmetics! Or so you think.

Take It All Off With The Double Cleansing Method

There are two types of impurities that our skin gets exposed to daily: water-based substances and oil-based substances. It’s easy enough to rinse off water-based impurities like sweat, dust and old skin cells. Oil-based substances like the sebum produced by your face are clingier, and if you’re wearing cosmetics like sunscreen and foundation, they’re often formulated to be resistant to water so they don’t quickly fade when you sweat. Because the substances get mixed on your face and oil repels water, washing with a facial cleanser is just not enough to get a squeaky clean face.

To solve this dilemma, beauty experts now recommend a technique called double cleansing. Basically, it’s a two-step routine that involves a gentle makeup remover.

Micellar water or micelle solutions like the Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution are fast becoming the most popular types of makeup removers for double cleansing. Micellar water feels like regular water but effectively removes both makeup and excess oil. It’s gentle on the skin and removes any residue left over on your skin first and then washing after with your favorite cleanser. 

The Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution can be used daily even by sensitive skin, and would make a great addition to any skin care regimen, regardless of whether you wear makeup or not. It’s a surefire way to take everything off, and allow your skin to be totally oil, makeup, and dirt-free.
