The de Mamiel Double Cleanse
Let me preface this by saying that I know the idea of double cleansing your skin at night might feel indulgent and a tad unnecessary. But hopefully I can shift your perspective by mentioning some of the benefits beyond deeply cleansing away the day's dirt and grime (which it does). Cleansing your skin not once, but twice, is incredibly therapeutic. There is something powerful and cathartic that happens when you make space to physically remove both the physical and emotional baggage from the day. Massaging your skin for an extended period of time affords you the opportunity to tune out the world and really connect with yourself. Cleansing your skin at the end of the day should be a deeply satisfying experience.
Externally, all of this extra massage increases blood and oxygen flow to the skin resulting in an immediate glow. Over time you might also notice that your skin heals more quickly and efficiently as a result of that increased circulation. Plus, facial massage boosts lymphatic drainage clearing away any puffiness and stagnation. If you're still skeptical, I advise taking one night to experiment with a double cleanse - don't rush through it and skimp on the facial massage though, that's the best part!
And if you are going to experiment with double cleansing, what better place to start than with the vibrant, exquisite, downright magical de Mamiel.
Step One - Wash your hands. Just do it. Don't cleanse your skin with dirty hands.
Step Two - Pump a generous amount of de Mamiel Pure Calm Cleansing Dew into your palm and begin massaging it over your skin. I err on the side of using perhaps a little too much cleansing oil because I like a lot of slip. If you prefer a more vigorous massage then by all means, use less. Pure Calm is a sensory experience. It smells so, so good. And it will leave your skin baby soft. I love it so much that I sometimes use it in the morning as well!
Step Three - Wet fingers and continue massaging to emulsify Pure Calm. Rinse with water.
Step Four - Gently pat skin dry.
Step Five - Scoop a dollop of Restorative Cleansing Balm out of the jar and begin massaging it over your skin. Take your time with this. Really enjoy the massage. If you have yet to experience Restorative Cleansing Balm, there is a reason it's a cult favorite. It's beyond luxurious and really feels like you are doing something special for your skin.
Step Six - Wet a cloth with warm water and gently remove the cleansing balm from your skin. Pat dry.
That's it. Feel free to move on with the rest of your nightly ritual!
