Why is double cleansing important? If you are living or working in a city, you should be aware how pollutants that you are exposed to everyday may harm your skin. As pollutants can penetrate the skin and damage our skin barrier by breaking down collagen, pollution could lead to pigmentation, dehydration and premature aging of your skin. It can also cause irritation, rashes, eczema and breakouts.
Double cleansing is the best way for you to get rid of both makeup and pollutants that linger on the skin’s surface. And there’s nothing complicated about it—firstly clean your face with makeup remover, then wash your face with a cleanser.
In the April edition of Watsons Beauty Box, it includes 2 amazing cleansing products from Urban Shield by Pure Beauty. The range is specifically formulated to combat adverse effects caused by pollution and blue lights. Sounds just like what I am looking for to ensure my skin is clean and refreshed after a long day!
Pure Beauty Antioxidant Make-up Remover Facial Cleansing Wipes
It is stated that these cleansing wipes can remove waterproof makeup and mascara. Just sweep it across your face to remove makeup, sunscreen, pore-clogging dirt and pollutants. Highlights are they are free of paraben, lanolin and alcohol!
The cleansing wipes are fairly thick and soft, saturated with makeup remover solution. I have used a waterproof lip tint for testing, and as seen in the video below it is removed quickly and easily in just a few swipes without harsh rubbing. Besides, the product is effective but super gentle at the same time. I have to admit that I am pretty impressed by the performance!

Rule #1 for defending the skin from pollution is to clean it thoroughly to remove the tiny particles! Using products formulated with antioxidants daily can neutralize particulates that accelerate skin aging and protect your skin from damages caused by pollution.
