Why you should add Double Cleansing to your skincare routine

Soap and water are not enough to clean your face. Yup, you heard it right. With the tons of pollution, dirt, makeup, and sunscreen that we had for a day, just that type of cleansing doesn’t cut it. That’s why you should add double cleansing to your daily skincare routine.  

This practice has been long observed in Korea, as the foundation of many beauty and skincare routines. But this doesn’t have to involve a 10-step practice! This method just involves washing your face with two different types of cleansers without stripping your natural oils. Leveling up your step on cleaning your face will make a world of difference to achieve that clean and healthy skin.

So how do we double cleanse?

1.    First, apply a cleansing oil, cleansing balm, or micellar water to dry skin. You can use your fingers while using a cleansing oil or balm and use a clean cotton pad when using micellar water. This will break down the makeup, sunscreen, or any pollution on your face. Don’t forget to massage the areas around your eyes and hairline, especially for makeup wearers. Even if you don’t wear makeup, this step will remove the SPF and oily substances that naturally build up on your skin.

2.    Rinse the cleansing oil or balm with lukewarm water and use a water-based gentle cleanser to wash your face as normal. Massage the second cleanser into your skin using your fingertips for a deeper clean. Make sure to read the instructions on the label and if suited to your skin type. Rinse off and pat dry. Then, you are ready for your next skincare routine.

What are the benefits of double cleansing?

This routine is filled with skincare benefits to help you achieve that dream skin.

  • It removes all traces of makeup and deep-down impurities that you might not see with the naked eye.
  •  It helps your skin absorb the next skincare you apply on your face afterward. It increases the efficacy of your other skincare products.
  • Cleanses and brightens the skin.
  • Unclogging the pores reduces the chances of getting acne.

Double cleansing is certainly one of the ways to get that healthy-looking skin. It will not always be a necessity every day especially if you don’t apply makeup on a daily basis. But taking that extra time might be a game changer.
