UNDERSTANDING YOUR CLEANSER: WATER BASE AND OIL BASE

Best way to reduce budge of buying unnecessary skincare that doesn’t work is to understand what kind of skincare that your skin really needs.

These days there is a lot of beauty retails that provide genuine tips for us. Since the beauty community growing, thanks for social media! We all get information so easily through internet.

UNDERSTANDING THE CLEANSER

OIL BASE

Is the first step of double cleansing, also the beginning of exfoliation. The oil base cleanser could include oil cleanser and cleansing balm. For those who have dry skin, using cleansing oil or balm will be beneficial for skin.

The cleansing will work to remove dirt without making your skin dry and feeling tighten. The natural moist and pil of your skin is still there.

My suggestion for oil base cleanser will be DHC Cleanser oil, HADALABO cleansing oil and HEIMISH BALM. I use all of them already and you can find the review on below of this article on REVIEW sections.

WATER BASE

The second step of double cleansing that remove the dirt and excessive oil that has already been caught from oil base cleanser while also work to clean your skin and exfoliate throughly.

DOUBLE CLEANSING

The use of both oil and water base cleanser as part of your skincare cleanser but you need to use it one for one step. Not going in by mixing the cleanser together and use it.

Benefit

Double cleansing nit only just cleansing your skin but also making your skin more brighten, and unclogged your pores.

If you are someone who like using makeup, double cleansing will help your skin to brighten up because using lots of makeup will make your skin dull and if you have larger pores. The excessive makeup will still be there and at the end, that will cause pimples.

Therefore double cleansing is also work to avoid pimples in coming.

Other considerations

The double cleansing need to be use when you use makeup and at night after your productive days. Morning time you can still use oil base cleanser alone to wash your face because during night time your skin work to make your skin better, that’s why most skincare tips is include sleeping not too late and sheetmasking.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT CLEANSER FOR DRY AND SENSITIVE SKIN

My skin condition is dry, dehydrated, sensitive and acne prone skin. My skin is so easily red. I have to choose beauty products that is not contained of several ingredients such as fragrance that will make my skin itchy and red, also alcohol that will makes my skin dry.

It is important for dry skin people to use sheetmask while also doing double cleansing. Dry, combination and normal will still bound by clogging pores, exposed to acnes and oils even thou they don’t use makeup at all. Yet, oil and outdoor exposure is the main reason we have pimples and clogged pores.

ALCOHOL AND FRAGRANCE IN BEAUTY PRODUCTS

Yet for some people, they are just ok using beauty products that contain this ingredients. Alcohol ingredient is being used in beauty products because it help to let the skincare dry. This kind of skincare make your skin feel that it is ‘penetrating’ quickly but by fact it just drying the skincare in your skin.

While fragrance happened to be use in skincare products because skincare are actually and will be very smelly. Some legitimate beauty brands will reduce the smell but setting expensive price for the product while others adding fragrance and set the price cheaper.

SKINCARE SEQUENCES FOR DRY SKIN

First

Cleansing your makeup with micellar water before cleanser. Micellar water that really good for your skin is BIODERMA. The brand use ingredients that actually not removing makeup and refresh skin but also work to moisten skin. I feel my skin really soft afterwards. The feel is different with any other micellar water that I used.

Second

oil base cleanser. After wash with oil cleanser, splash it with water then continue with water base cleanser.

Third

Exfoliation toner. Can be glycolic acid, BHA

Fourth

Serum. Using C serum, niacinamide, centella or serum that work to solve your skin problem. it doesn’t have to be the same with what I mentioned or your friends serum.

Fifth

Essence. For dry skin you need to use 2-3 essence

Sixth

Lock in moisturizer. Hydrating, Moisturizer and Occlusive to make a real moisturizer for your skin. Best hydrating cream that work for me is Clinique Moisture Lock and First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair face cream. Best moisture for my skin will be Monuskin Essential Element or Balm, while occlusive is Cetaphil face and body cream or Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin

Seventh

is face oils. For beginner, its better to use dry oil such as Timeless skincare Argan oil. The choice of face oils will be very crucial because this last step may be clogging your pores and at the end it won’t even plump your skin or even supplying your skin with oils.

SUGGESTION FOR DRY SKIN ONLY

Using sheetmask will make dry skin refresh by hydrating and moisten the skin. Using sheetmask while doing double cleansing will help to brighten and also nurture post acne scar.

Use sheetmask and also lock in moist by adding all the hydrating, moisturizer and occlusive to skin will help to brighten up because those skincare is creating barrier for your skin.

Doing this every night will help to make your skin better and also your makeup look will be amazing by the look of smooth and flawless skin.
