There’s a lot of misconception around Cleansing Balms, and Double Cleansing Routine – ‘cleansing balms are only for people who wear makeup’, ‘cleansing balms are not meant for oily skin’; I know we still live with such confusions around. Here’s the thing – Cleansing Balms are oil-based deep cleansers, which come in balms, creams and oil forms, that deep-cleanses the pores as the first cleanse step. This has to be carried with a second water-based cleanser to ensure deep cleansed skin. Cleansing balms have also been my favorite these days and I’m totally enjoying trying and experimenting with all new cleansing balms. Recently, I’ve been trying out the Earthy By Ellenza Matcha Green Tea Cleansing Balm, which has the goodness of Matcha Green Tea, Neem and Basil oils, and honestly loving it. Let’s see what this new Cleansing balm has for us, and why do I love it.


HOW TO DOUBLE CLEANSE |Key to Clearer and Better Skin

The art of Double Cleansing method is first introduced by Korean women use to achieve clear skin. Koreans are known for their clear and bright glass-like skin, which we all envy. It involves washing your face in two steps; first by using an oil-based cleanser, followed by a water-based cleanser. The first step draws out oil-based impurities such as sebum, SPF, and pollutants while the second step cleanses water-based debris such as sweat and dirt. It is basically like you wash your face twice, but with two different products. It is simple, yet time consuming, but it gives the best results and it’s probably the best thing you’re doing to your skin.
