What is Double Cleansing?

Posted by Michelle Neathery on

Hey there, beautiful people! Are you ready to double up on your skincare routine? If you haven't heard yet, double cleansing is the hot new trend in the beauty world. Yes, you heard that right! The secret to clear, flawless skin is washing your face twice!

Now, before you get skeptical, let me tell you why this trend really works. As a science-forward beauty brand, we always have our doubts about the latest beauty trends, but this one is backed up by science. Oil-based cleansers are especially skilled at dissolving makeup and drawing out impurities from your skin. This is because oil attracts oil, so when you use an oil-based cleanser, it blends easily with the sebum, sweat, and other impurities built up on your skin, making it easier to wash them all away. Micellar water also works wonders by clinging to oil and dirt.

But wait, there's more! The downside to these types of cleansers is that they can be difficult to wash off completely. That's where your second, water-based cleanser comes in. Its surfactants will cut through any oil and grime left behind by your first cleanser and be easy to rinse away with water.

Now, here's the fun part! There are many ways you can incorporate double cleansing into your skincare routine. You can use the same cleanser for both washes, two different cleansers, or any combination that works for you. We recommend starting with an oil-based cleanser to address makeup, oil, and grime, and then following up with a different cleanser to take care of any leftover impurities. Your second cleanser should be water-based, preferably a foaming gel, a foaming cream cleanser, or micellar water, depending on your first cleanser.

And, of course, don't forget to moisturize after your double cleanse. No matter your skin type, your skin needs moisture! Always follow up with a serum and moisturizer of your choice.

So there you have it, folks! Double cleansing is the way to go for clear, flawless skin. And the best part is, it's not complicated at all! Just wash your face twice and watch your skin glow!
