Washing your face is no doubt an integral part of your beauty routine. And we hope you know the No. 1 rule when it comes to finding the perfect cleanser: Pick the formula based on your skin type. But, what you may not know is that there also benefits to using a second, different face wash at night—one very different than what you usually use during your AM routine.
Our team have all benefited from adding in a second Cleanser alternating between two different formulas because our needs are different both morning and night.
Mornings – Because makeup is applied after cleansing, look for a formula that doesn’t overly dry skin. Otherwise, makeup can flake and take on that whole cakey-looking thing.
Osea Ocean Cleanser works well for a morning cleanser because of mineral-rich organic seaweed effectively removes excess oil and surface impurities from skin while maintaining a hydrated, healthy looking complexion. Plus its scent of lime, cypress, juniper and jasmine essential oils will not only energize the skin but awaken the senses for the day ahead
Your morning cleanser should not involve any exfoliation (which strips the skin), but rather focus on soothing, cleaning and hydrating your face. Makeup layered on top will apply more smoothly. Other AM cleansers we love:
At night, we opt for an heavier oil based cleanser. And why it may seem counterintuitive, remember that “oil cuts through oil, which helps remove excess oil, dirt and makeup.” At the end of the day you want to, of course, remove all of the grime, but also prep skin to revive itself while you sleep. And a oil-based cleanser just does that.
We absolutely love MV Organics Gentle Cream Cleanser – gaining ‘cult’ status around the world, this luxe cleanser removes all traces of make-up and grime without stripping and works miracles on congested skin. silky-smooth and deliciously scented, this unique moisturising cleanser is perfect for all skins including even the most sensitive. The result is clean, supple skin ready to hit the pillow. Other PM cleansers to try
