"You only need to cleanse your skin once a day"
Fact: This myth is BUSTED! We actually need to cleanse our skin TWICE a day - morning and night.
It's essential to cleanse your skin at night to get rid of all the pollution, dirt and grime accumulated throughout the day.
During the night, our skin goes through the repairing and rejuvenation stage. It secretes oil, sweat and other impurities.
That's why we also need to cleanse in the morning, to start the day with a clean canvas before applying any serums or moisturiser on the skin.
If you don't cleanse your skin in the morning, your products won't be absorbed properly and can even clog the oil or impurities secreted during the night into your pores - which then causes bacteria, ultimately leading to those nasty breakouts!
On that note... Do I need to double cleanse at night?
Absolutely! Double cleansing is a ritual you should incorporate into your nighttime skin routine. The first cleanser will remove makeup and a bit of the pollution and dirt you've accumulated during the day. The second cleanser is what actually will flush out the pores, deeply cleanse and prepare the skin to receive the full benefits of your serums and nighttime targeted treatments.
