As she prepares for her role as a judge on the upcoming season of The Voice, Jessica Mauboy is prioritising finding the right balance between wearing heavy TV makeup, long days on set and caring for her skin.
Since auditioning for Australian Idol at the young age of 16, the now 32-year-old has learned a thing or two about staying disciplined when it comes to self-care.
Speaking to Channel 7, she said: “Outside of filming I love to exercise.” A typical day for the singer involves “getting up and going for a run for an hour, taking the dog for a walk, having a bite to eat and doing my nails.” And while we wish she had elaborated on her nail care routine, we did get a glimpse into one of her daily skin care practices.
Jessica sang the praises of the foolproof method for ridding your pores of any dirt and pollution: double cleansing. The singer shared: “I’m a big advocate for washing your face twice, especially when I have a lot of makeup on.”
So if you’re the kind of person who uses a face wipe and considers your cleansing routine done, we’re here to enlighten you on the benefits of cleansing not once, but twice.
Particularly beneficial in the evening, a double cleanse ensures the removal of stubborn product, pollution and bacteria that has built up over the day. The initial cleanse often involves an oil cleanser, micellar water or cleansing balm to break down and cut through makeup and SPF, while the second cleanse requires a cream or gel formula that acts as a deeper wash to clear your skin of impurities.
For the perfect double cleansing routine, we recommend:
