The best cleansing balm to boost your Korean skin care regimen

There is a myth that double cleansing is only for those ladies who wear heavy makeup.  But beside makeup there are so many things that stick to our skin and clogs our pores. This can be your waterproof sunscreen,  moisturiser or dust and pollutants from the environment.

Whether you are an ardent lover of makeup or love flaunting your natural skin. We all want to start our day with a fresh looking skin and also want to go to the bed with a clearer skin.

Every skincare routine starts with cleansing, as it helps in removing dirt and grime. To start with this step, we use our regular facewash which removes water soluble impurities. But what about oil based impurities which cannot be removed by water?

To remove these oil based impurities we need oil based cleansers.

Now, your another concern may be that double washing will strip natural oils from your skin. You will be happy to know that these oil based cleansing balm will remove even the toughest of lip stains without drying your lips. This is because when we wash our face with facewash we overwash to remove heavy makeup. This  makes your skin itchy and irritating. But if you will follow double cleansing, then the oil based balm will remove every dirt and grime without drying your skin. After that even small amount of mild facewash will be enough for removing water soluble impurities.

Some may doubt that oil based cleansers will make their skin more oily. Excess of oil will in turn make their skin more acne prone. So keep your worries aside as cleansing balms helps in deep cleansing of pores by removing dirt, grime and sebum. The best part is that it will do all this without drying your skin. Many times folks with oily skin use harsh cleansers which overdry their skin. Then to compensate this dryness our skin starts producing more oils. So we are never able to solve this oily skin problem. So oil based cleansers help us in balancing our natural oil  by not overdrying our skin.
