Cleansing Step, a right way

When I walked to Origins counter with frens, surprisingly i found that there is still some people (I am not sure only a few or a lot) dunno how to use skincare correctly. For an axample, cleansing gel/foam need to lather before applying on skin, or moisturizer need to be followed right after toner. Suddenly i realize, the skincare itself become a factor whether he/she suits the product, when it is not suitable for someone, is it because the procedures and application go wrong?
It is advisable for double cleanse in Malaysia, we have hot humid weather, so double cleanse will cleanse both water and oil soluble dirt and impurities.

cleansing oil/milk -> cleansing gel/foam

First, wash and wipe your hand before cleansing. otherwise, cleanser only wash your hand, and imagine you put those dirt on face.

If you use cleansing oil, make sure both of your hand and face have no moisture. Warm cleansing oil using palm, massage face for 1-2 minutes, add water to emulsify cleansing oil, it turn milky liquid. Afterthat rinse with water, you will feel silky smooth. If you face feel oily, maybe you din emulsify cleansing oil well

If you use cleansing milk/lotion, pump on clean palm, warm it with palm and massage on face in circular motion for 1-2 minutes, wipe off with tissue paper.

If you use cleansing gel/foam, as long as it can foam, you must fully lather to activate it, then put those bubbles on face, massage 1 minute and rinse with water.

When your face is well cleansed, the following steps can work perfectly, better absorption and active ingredients can penetrate better on skin.
