It seems like the rules for impeccable skin are always changing, but this little secret has been in the hands of beauty professionals and influencers for years. With the right tools and information, it’s quite easy to add to your routine.
What exactly is double cleansing?
Double cleansing is deceptively simple. Just as it sounds, double cleansing means washing your face with two cleansers, but there’s more to it than doubling up on your favorite cleanser.
Instead of relying on classic soap and water, this two-step process involves using two different cleansers to get a truly deep clean.
Why is double cleansing important?
For many of us, putting on makeup is part of our everyday routine. With contour becoming more and more popular as an everyday look, we find people are wearing a full face of makeup now more than ever. Then, as we go through our day, we’re met with dirt, grime, sweat, pollution, and even airborne bacteria. Gross.
Double cleansing means double the fun!
The first cleanser works to break down makeup, sunscreen, sweat, and all the grime you encounter throughout the day. This allows the second cleanser to get deep and work its magic to remove any impurities in your pores.
Bonus! This process may even improve the effectiveness of your favorite night creams and serums by allowing them to actually penetrate and work on your skin.
How do I add double cleansing to my skincare routine?
As we mentioned before, this step breaks down the makeup, dirt, and bacteria on your face.
Begin with an oil-based cleanser. If you’re prone to oily skin, you can also use a cleansing balm or micellar water.
This lightweight cleansing balm is infused with nourishing mangosteen, elderberry juices, and avocado oil. The gentle formula lifts makeup and impurities away while detoxifying your pores.
