Double Cleansing

April 05, 2019

Double Cleansing

Have you heard all the buzz about double cleansing? Below you'll find a basic how-to and defense for double cleansing (with Some Call Me Crunchy product suggestions, of course)! 

Why double cleanse?

Double Cleansing is a must because having a clean canvas to apply toners and skin nourishing serums is very important. If you spend lots of money on serums and hydrating creams, but your skin isn't clean, those powerhouse products won't actually do very much. 

How does double cleansing work? 

Double Cleansing doesn't have to be super complicated and really isn't that much more work. I recommend doing the double cleanse (steps below) 2-3 times a week and adjusting the frequency according to how your skin responds (e.g. if it's drier, cut down on the days that you double cleanse). 

Here's what you do: 

  1. Use the Some Call Me Crunchy Oil Cleanser that is best for your skin type. If you're not sure what cleanser you need, feel free to email me at erienne@somecallmecrunchy.com and ask for recommendations. We offer three versions: oily/acne prone, normal/combo, dry mature. This cleanser also removes makeup!! Win/win, right? 
  2. Immediately after cleansing with the oil cleanser, use either one of the natural soaps (Castile or Activated Charcoal) we carry to wash your face. These lather up and ensure that you're getting a clean surface to apply your remaining products. 
  3. Continue with the rest of your skincare regimen. I recommend using one of our Complexion Mists (Lavender Rose or Calendula Frankincense) and then one of our serums (Balance, Soothe, or Restore).

Tip: Don't double cleanse on days that you are using a clay mask

Kindergarten 2020 Homeschool Plan
Kindergarten 2020 Homeschool Plan

July 29, 2020

Well. Here we are, friends. I'm going to be a homeschooling mom for the 2020-2021 school year. This was not an easy decision. Before I had kids I thought I might homeschool them one day. I quickly changed my mind when I became an actual parent. Even with a background in education (elementary school teacher and librarian), I realized that I didn't want to homeschool and would most likely be sending my kids to public school. Then COVID...

Unlearning + Learning: An Anti-Racist Book Club
Unlearning + Learning: An Anti-Racist Book Club

June 11, 2020

Over the past months, I've learned that I have a lot to learn concerning the history of our country and the issues of systemic racism. I've recognized that I, too, have biases that I was unaware of. Waking up to this reality has felt a little like grieving or at least going through the grief process. It hit me hard in the beginning and I was sad and angry. Then I didn't know what to do with the pain of it and was overwhelmed by it all. And now I'm accepting the fact that I have a lot of work to do and that this is a marathon, not a sprint...

Book Review: Becoming by Michelle Obama
Book Review: Becoming by Michelle Obama

June 05, 2020

"For me, becoming isn't about arriving somewhere and achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn't end. I became a mother, but I still have a lot to learn from and give to my children. I became a wife, but I continue to adapt to and be humbled by what it means to truly love and make a life with another person. I have become, by certain measures, a person of power, and yet there are moments still when I feel insecure and unheard. It's all a process, steps...
