Hi guys! I'm excited to be teaming up with Neutrogena today to talk about their Double Cleansing Method. Now that we are in a new season, I always like to switch up my skincare routine a little bit. In colder weather, my skin tends to get really dry, even though I technically have a combination skin type. This means I need to use products that hydrate my skin. I’m pretty darn serious about my skincare regime. I never ever go to bed without taking off my makeup, and most nights I follow a pretty extensive routine. I’ve been using Neutrogena for years, so I was excited to try a couple of new products!
I’ve always used Neutrogena’s regular makeup remover towelettes, but based on my skin type, they recommended I try their Hydrating Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. They are clinically proven to remove 99.3% of your makeup, but also hydrate your skin at the same time. If there is only ONE step you do every night, it should be this. Taking off your makeup is essential to letting your skin go through it's natural healing process overnight.
The next step in the Double Cleansing Method is to wash with a cleanser. I tried out Deep Clean® Cream Cleanser which cleanses deep down into pores and removes dead surface skin that can dry and dull your complexion. It’s gentle enough for everyday use too. Plus, it’s oil free, so it works for oily ladies and the cream-based product is great for dry skin. Basically, a win-win for my combination skin type, and bonus for those pesky dry months!
Most nights I do follow up with toner, moisturizer, and an under-eye cream. But it’s definitely great to know that if I only use the first two steps, my skin will be free of dirt, oil and makeup and be cleansed and ready for sleep! I’ve been trying this new routine for about a week now, and I’m pleased with the results! My skin definitely feels less dry for this time of year, and no breakouts since! I always get nervous to try new products (due to breaking out), but I’ve had zero problems so far, so that’s great.
I’m a firm believer in conquering a good skincare routine, so you don’t have to try and cover up bad skin with makeup products and fancy techniques. Focus more on getting #unready, and you'll have healthier skin! Besides a nightly skincare routine, eating healthy, drinking water and wearing sunscreen are essential to keeping your skin healthy too!
