Why oil cleansers are best for stubborn makeup
Have you ever wondered why even after you clean your skin in the evening, makeup still ends up on your pillowcase? It's because your skin doesn't really get clean. To remove all the makeup before bed, you need to start with an oil cleanser.
Why clean with oil first?
As chemistry tells us, "like attracts like," so cleansing with an oil-based formula first can break down oil-soluble substances like makeup, environmental pollutants, excess sebum (oil), and product residue for a deeper clean than your regular cleanser alone. We call this technique the Dermalogica Double Cleanse.
Using an oil cleanser before your regular cleanser helps:
- Gently dissolves and removes debris and makeup.
- Smoothes, soothes and nourishes the skin without clogging pores
- Your regular cleanser and other skin care products can work better
After a long, full day of makeup, make sure you remove it all before bed. Not only will you protect your white pillowcases from stains, but you'll also ensure that your nighttime moisturizers and serums are better absorbed into your skin overnight.
Don't wear makeup? Then you'll still need an oil cleanser to remove SPF and daily impurities.
When it comes to removing glamorous makeup, an oil cleanser is your best friend. It helps you avoid damaging your skin by scrubbing too hard. Oil-based cleansers like PreCleanse and PreCleanse Balm gently remove impurities from the environment and all that:
- Mascara (even waterproof!)
- heavy foundation
- film residue from physical sunscreen
- lipstick and hard to remove lip stains
- false eyelashes and eyelash extensions
What is the difference between our oil cleansers?
PreCleanse is a light oil ideal for balanced to oily skin, while PreCleanse Balm is a rich oil balm ideal for balanced to dry skin. PreCleanse Balm also comes with a double-sided Cleansing Mitt for extra gentle exfoliation.
No one wants a dirty pillowcase. The key to completely removing makeup and other impurities is to double cleanse, starting with an oil cleanser.
