Why I Love The Double Cleanse Method

cleansing oil removes oil-based matter – sebum, dirt, pollution, water-resistant makeup, and stubborn sunscreen.

A cleansing oil is an excellent way to cleanse oily skin and control blackheads, breakouts, and other congestion. This is because oil attracts oil. So if you have acne do not be afraid to double cleanse it’s key to your skincare routine. 

A very gentle & thorough cleansing day & night is the foundation of effective skincare. Moisturizing serums and creams are absorbed 10x better.

Ingredients :

Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, PEG-40 Sorbitan Peroleate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Oil, Borago Officinalis Seed Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Extract, Lavandula Hybrida Oil, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Aleurites Moluccana Seed Oil, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tocopherol, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Citral, Limonene, Linalool.

 

 

 

 

  1. Prepare. Either mix your oils together ahead of time, or you can use just 1 type of oil.
  2. Cleanse. Pour the oil in the palm of your hand and then apply gently all over your dry face. Massage firmly, but gently, always moving upwards. Massage for 2 minutes.
  3. Rinse.  Rinse off your face with warm water & slowly begin to wipe off with a wet warm washcloth. Rinse your washcloth and repeat until you’ve wiped all the oil off your skin.

After the oil cleanse you can then go into your facial cleanser of your choice. 

Below oils are great to use as the first step in your double cleanse routine. I personally love the pre cleanse by Dermalogica because it has rice bran in it along with some other amazing ingredients.

No Risk No Gain

 

So much has happened in the past couple of weeks. I quit the spa at the Hilton & have started a new journey at Ulta as a skin therapist doing facials, makeup etc. My manager got me this going away cake **tear** She was the absolute best & not the reason I left Hilton. The reason why I left Hilton was because I felt the need to grow & it was not happening there. Some of the people that worked there were “Debbie downers” & not doing what they love; simply just there for the paycheck. I also felt stagnant at the spa & had a constant thought in my mind to do greater things & meet new people ( I also think of it as the Holy Spirit urging me to leave & grow)

Change is uncomfortable & scary but if it doesn’t challenge you it doesn’t change you. And the only way to become who you are truly meant to be is to accept the fact that change is inevitable.

The Hilton opened so many doors of opportunity for me & I will be forever grateful.

I was offered the skin therapist position at Ulta & I took it !

I am excited to be using Dermalogica for my facials at Ulta & to be working with so many beauty account executives in this huge world of beauty.

Exfoliation is crucial

It send a message to the dermis that repair should begin & fresh cells are needed. I love how exfoliating expedites cell turnover & makes the skin glow.
