Pre-cleanse; an important first step many are missing. Yes! You heard that right! You cleanse before your cleanse. Double-cleansing may seem like a chore considering some nights we’re lucky to cleanse once. This is one step that can really help benefit your skin care routine. Pre-cleansing helps break down makeup and dirt on the skin, giving cleansers a chance to do their job more effectively. Whatever your cleansing ritual is, religious to non-existent, please consider pre-cleansing. According to Dr. Debra Jaliman, author of Skin Rules and New York-based dermatologist states, “Pre-cleansing can lead to fewer breakouts if you’re not good in your cleansing routine (refinery29.com).”
