Are you *PROPERLY* cleansing your skin? 🧐 If not, you might as well be throwing all your skincare products in the trash 🗑 😪 A proper cleanse can mean your other products work better for your skin ✨

Here are some pointers below:

  • Cleanse twice daily with a GENTLE cleanser. Your face should feel soft and supple after cleansing or what you’re using might be too harsh. .
  • But don’t half-ass it. @labeautyologist popularized the 60 second rule when it comes to cleansing—check it out on her page and Youtube channel. You might also want to look into using cleansing devices periodically. I personally like @clarisonic devices 1-2 times a week. My derm @drmichellehenry has mentioned “The Buff Puff” as an inexpensive cleansing tool option.
  • Double/Multi-Cleansing. An oil-based cleanser to remove your makeup, followed by a gel or cream based cleanser. Sometimes I do a 3rd step w/ a cotton pad (I like either @shiseido or @chanelofficial ones) dabbed in micellar water to make sure I get any gunk around my hairline. Recently though @olehenriksen came out with a bomb gentle cleanser that can remove makeup and cleanse in ONE step. Check it out on my IGTV. .
  • Deep cleansing. But do NOT overdo this. It can lead to dryness which can lead to things like overproduction of oil, irritation, breakouts, etc 😪 I do this maybe 1-2 times a week especially when I’m wearing makeup. More info in my blog post!
  • This helps to remove dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. The skin has a self-renewing process that helps get rid of them, but the process can slow down in colder weather and also when we get older. There are two types: chemical and physical exfoliation. How often you exfoliate depends on your skin and your exfoliation method. More on all of this in my blog post! .
  • Don’t go it alone! Everything is NOT a DIY. Seeing a licensed skincare professional who has *PROVEN* experience with your skin type is a must. Facials with an esthetician can do wonders for your And there are just some limits to what products can do and that’s where a dermatologist steps in.
