Hello, Assalamualaikum. Welcome back to my channel
For those who don’t know me, my name is Maisarah Mahmud
I actually have a KPMG talk right now and my lecturer has already called me
But that talk is not compulsory
You can go if you want and it’s fine if you don’t want to
But I’m not going cause I woke up late this morning
So here I am now recording this video lol
So today, I want to talk about 5 things you need to know about double cleansing
First of all, what is double cleansing?
Double cleansing is a skincare technique which is very popular in Korea
Double cleansing is when we wash our face using two types of cleansers
which are oil cleanser and water-based cleanser
So, what are the benefits of double cleansing?
Why do we have to cleanse our face using two types of cleansers?
Why can’t we just use one type?
The benefit of cleansing our face using oil cleanser is (refer to the side note)
In chemistry, we call this ‘oil-attracts-oil’
Meaning oil attracts oil
Meanwhile, water-based cleanser removes normal impurities that are present on our face
For example(refer to the side note)
So when we cleanse our face using oil cleanser and water-based cleanser
We can cleanse our face more deeply
Because when we use the oil cleanser,
It will remove the oil-based impurities on our face
And when we follow up with water-based cleanser
The water-based cleanser would be able to penetrate deeper into our skin and clear our pores
And our pores would appear smaller and clean as well
But Kak Mai, isn’t there a cleanser out there that can do both? For example 2-in-1 products
Personally, I don’t like 2-in-1 products
Because I feel that 2-in-1 products are very drying and harsh to our skin
So I don’t really recommend that kind of products to you guys
So, who needs to do double cleansing?
Double cleansing is suitable for people who wear makeup and sunscreen
Because, when we wear makeup or sunscreen
And we don’t do double cleansing,
There will still be traces of impurities on our skin
So if we want to clean it more deeply,
We have to use oil cleanser
But Kak Mai, if I have oily skin and I use oil cleanser
Won’t it make my face more oily?
No. Like I said earlier,
Oil cleanser has ‘oil-attract-oil’ basis
Hence, there will be less oil on our skin
And, in oil cleanser,
There is emulsifier added to it so it would be easier for the oil to be washed off from our skin
When we rinse off with water
But if I don’t have oily skin and I rarely wear makeup
Should I do double cleansing?
If that is the case, then double cleansing is optional
For me, I really like double cleansing
Because I feel my pores appear smaller and cleaner as well
That’s why I prefer double cleansing
First of all, the people who should not do double cleansing are the ones who are diagnosed with fungal acne
This is because fungi really loves oily surface
If you want to know more about tiny bumps on your forehead(potentially fungal acne)
You guys can refer to my previous video about fungal acne
Second, you should not do double cleansing
When you have already tried using oil cleanser and you experience breakout
And you still try all the other oil cleansers,
I did say that double cleansing is fantastic because I can see improvements on my own skin
But if you guys do it and keep getting breakouts,
Stop immediately as that means your skin cannot tolerate oil cleanser
Always listen to your skin
Because some people have skin that have zelo tolerance towards oil cleanser
So if you guys use it and pimples keep popping up
Don’t use oil cleanser anymore
But instead, you guys can try using milk cleanser or balm cleanser
So, when should we double cleanse?
Personally, I like to do it in my night skincare routine before I go to sleep
Can you do double cleansing every single day?
Yes, you can do that if you want
But I do it 2 to 3 times a week not every day
Now, I wanna show you guys a tutorial on how to double cleanse
But now I am in UIA
That tutorial was recorded when I went back home last week not here
My goodness, my scarf is soaking wet
My recommendations of product when it comes to double cleansing
If you guys wanna try oil cleanser
You guys can try(refer to the side note)
So there is really a lot of oil cleansers that you can find at drugstores
For milk cleanser,
You guys can try L’oreal Cleansing Milk or Neutrogena
For balm cleanser, you guys can try heimish balm cleanser or banila co
So, I guess that’s all for my today’s video
I hope that my video in which I have shown the tutorial can help explain to you guys
On how to do double cleansing
I hope I will see you guys in my next video. Bye Bye
