The Benefits of Double Cleansing

Double cleansing is as simple as it sounds. It involves thoroughly washing your face with two cleansers.⁣

The only catch is that the cleansers need to be two different types to have the desired effect.⁣

The first is usually an oil-based cleanser. This is followed up by a water-based one. ⁣

However, it’s possible to double cleanse with two regular cleansers if oils aren’t right for you.⁣

The benefit of double cleansing is that the first cleanser will break down any makeup, remove dirt and excess oils from the day and clean your skin.⁣

The second cleanser will address your particular skin type or concern and should have ingredients to hydrate, smooth or exfoliate and treat acne.⁣

Not only is a double cleanse meant to give a more thorough cleanse, but it can also revitalize dull skin and allow other skin care products to penetrate more effectively.⁣

Japan and Korea are the founding fathers of double cleansing.⁣

According to reports, Japanese geishas used cleansing oils followed by a foamy cleanser to remove their white makeup. ⁣

The technique also became popular as part of the Korean 10-step skin care regime, which has migrated into Western culture in recent years.⁣

As soon as you’re done with the double cleanse, you’ll need to seal in moisture before getting on with the rest of your skin care regime.⁣

In the morning, follow up with a good quality moisturizer and sunscreen.⁣

At nighttime, choose between hydrating serums, oils, and night creams, or a combination.⁣
