Pre-cleansing is the new double-cleansing
If double-cleansing is too much for you at the end of a long day, maybe you just need a little attitude adjustment. If you use makeup remover on your eyes (or anything else), you can essentially use this step as your first cleanse—or instead call it a “pre-cleanse,” which takes some of the pressure off. Dermalogica’s soon-to-be-released PreCleanse Balm makes the process a lot easier, but you’ll probably want to reserve one before it goes on sale on September 7.
You start by applying this novel formula to a dry face before rubbing it around with included mitt for a bit of mild exfoliation mitt as it melts away dirt, grime and makeup. Then you add water to transform it into a lightweight milky fluid and rinse. From there, cleanse as you normally would and enjoy your soft, silky, hydrated skin.
Keep in mind that this new variation of Dermalogica’s PreCleanse is designed for normal to dry skin, so if you’re on the oily side, stick with the original—and reap the same benefits!
