So what is ‘Double Water’?
It is nothing but a treatment involving hot and cold water, but used in the right order.
How to Use:
After waking up in the morning, you need to prep your face by first rinsing it with lukewarm water and patting it dry. Further on, massage your face with a gentle cleanser for about 3-4 minutes. Again, rinse off with lukewarm water.
Soon after, splash cold water on your face. Make sure you thoroughly rinse your face with cold water.
You will instantly have a smooth, glowing skin. Repeat this ritual daily, and in less than a month all your skin-related worries will become history. It is natural and leads to no side-effects.
How it Works:
Your face is oily when you wake up in the morning as a result of natural oil secretion by the skin pores. So, when you wash your face first with lukewarm water it helps open up these pores. Then by massaging with a cleanser you end up cleaning up the pores and getting rid of dirt, dead skin and oil which can lead to blackheads later. By continuing to wash your face with cold water, you instantly shut these pores without making your skin vulnerable to bacterial infection and free radicals. This process helps eliminate dead skin cells and dirt and makes your skin clean and spot-free.
