The double cleansing

layering

For whom? Urbanites who suffer from pollution, and those who tend to have pimples and want in-depth cleansing.

Layering, that has come to us from Japan and Korea, is a ritual in several steps. First step, you apply an oil extracted from plants on dry skin and massage well. Then add water to emulsify. The oil is transformed into milk for extra encapsulating and to eliminate residues, pollution, makeup and sun filters. Rinse with water and pores are liberated. On humid skin, move on to the second step, for the most minute. Use a milk or a gel that is the least aggressive possible, that will get rid of the last residues inside the deepest pores.

Result: glowing skin with pores liberated from all traces of residues, ready to receive the usual treatments.

Beauty Wave, Laboté, €28 - for a unique cocktail of fresh ingredients targeted for your skin.

Special cleansing gel, Dermalogica, €56.50 - with a combination of essential oils including apricot oil.

Oil balm Double cleanser, Lierac, €23.50 - with nourishing camellia oil.

NB: to efficiently remove oil, pollution, makeup and solar filters that obstruct pores, it is mandatory to use an oily material. And yes, oily substances dissolve better with oil.
