Your evening cleanse can make or break your skincare routine.

You might be thinking, “Really, Lauren? I literally wash it off”, but trust me, the cleansing step is pivotal, yet often underestimated when it comes to the products you’re leaving on, like your serums. 

Enter the game-changing approach of double cleansing, with an oil cleanser as the star. Let's dive into why incorporating an oil-based cleanser like Orange Crush Cleansing Oil into your skincare routine isn't just beneficial—it's essential.


Unveiling The Power Of Double Cleansing

Double cleansing starts with an oil-based cleanser, which is crucial for effectively removing oil-based impurities such as makeup, SPF, and pollutants. This is followed by a water or cream-based cleanser that addresses water-soluble residues like sweat and dirt. This two-step process ensures a pristine, thoroughly cleansed skin, which is critical for the steps following your cleanse to work their hardest for your skin.


The Science Behind Oil Cleansing

Oil cleansing leverages the principle that oil attracts oil. Applying an oil-based cleanser as your first cleanse effectively draws out unwanted oils from the pores without disrupting the skin's natural balance. Orange Crush Cleansing Oil enhances your skincare routine by effectively removing persistent products that water-based cleansers might leave behind, such as sunscreen. Unlike some harsh cleansers that strip the skin, oil cleansers add nourishment back, thanks to their rich, natural oil content, making them gentle yet powerful enough for all skin types.


Busting Cleansing Oil Myths

A common myth is that people with oily skin should avoid oil-based products. Contrary to this common myth, people with oily skin can significantly benefit from oil-based products. Oil cleansing can regulate the skin's oil production by effectively removing excess sebum, reducing the likelihood of breakouts, and giving the skin a balanced, matte finish. It also dissolves the sebum mixed with dead skin cells and other impurities that clog pores, which are often the culprits behind breakouts.


Ingredients To Look For In A Cleansing Oil

When choosing a cleansing oil, we recommend prioritising two things: naturally-derived ingredients and antioxidants. This lathers your skin with daily protective properties that combat daily stressors and supercharge your natural glow.

 Orange Crush Cleansing Oil is enriched with potent botanicals that provide multiple skin health benefits, including:

· Sunflower oil - packed with essential vitamins to strengthen your skin's barrier, offering an antioxidant boost and profound nourishment.

· Avocado oil - known to be high in fatty acids and vitamins to soothe and heal red, inflamed, or irritated skin.

· Sweet orange - a vibrant source of antioxidants that brightens the skin, clears blemishes, and boosts youthful radiance.


How to Implement Double Cleansing In Your Routine

Start with dry skin and apply Orange Crush Cleansing Oil directly onto your face with your hands, allowing the oil to interact with your skin’s natural oils efficiently. Use your fingertips to massage the oil into your face, helping the oil penetrate deeper and lift impurities from the pores. Wet a cleansing pad or flannel with warm water, and gently glide it over your face to remove Orange Crush off of your face. Your skin should feel clean but not stripped. Complete your double cleanse with a gentle water or cream-based cleanser to remove any remaining impurities and refresh your skin.
