Ok, so I felt like this video deserved a post on the blog as well. I’ve noticed that although Korean Beauty has been gaining popularity, there are also some things that are being done…incorrectly. I don’t like using that term because I feel like I’m being very patronizing. Also, let’s face it…there’s really no definite way to do anything. There always several ways to do something and different methods in makeup and skincare. However, there could be certain things you’re doing that’s not utilizes Korean Beauty to its maximum potential. So, I’m here to clarify! But hey, if you are doing these things and they work for you… by all means… don’t let me stop you!

Double cleansing is a Korean technique where you use a cleansing oil/balm first to break up your makeup and then you cleanse your face with a face wash. Why is this important? Simple. When you don’t double cleanse, you’re not really cleaning your skin. The first step is using a cleansing balm or oil to breakup your makeup, sunscreen, etc. I know what you’re thinking… if I don’t wear makeup, should I still double cleanse? Yes, because I’m assuming you’re at least using a sunscreen everyday (SMH if you’re not! Protect that skin!). After you breakup all that makeup and rinse your skin, then you can use a cleanser to wash your skin. This step actually works into the pores and removes all the impurities. If you just go straight to your face wash without using a cleansing balm or oil first, your face wash is working hard to remove the makeup, sunscreen, free radicals. It doesn’t actually get down to your skin.
Here’s what I use to double cleanse if you’re curious!

I highly agree on #6! Air puffs are so magical, I have not looked back on my powder foundation once I discovered cushion compacts. Double thumbs up for this!
