Skincare 101: Double Cleansing

Just like the skincare products you put on your skin before and after your makeup, using the right makeup remover or cleanser is equally essential. We've talked about the different types of makeup removers before, but now it's time to explore in more detail how to get the best of your skin cleansing with a little something called double cleansing.

Double Cleansing? Does That Mean I Should Wash My Face Twice? 

Not exactly. Double cleansing refers to cleansing your face with first a makeup remover, and then a facial cleanser. This helps remove stubborn makeup, impurities, and sunscreen so that your skin is a clean canvas for upcoming skincare products, hence double cleansing is ideal as part of your night-time skincare routine. 

 But you may be wondering, if I don’t wear makeup – do I still need to double cleanse? 

The answer is yes, absolutely. A makeup remover melts away sunscreen, sebum, and pollutants that sit on the skin’s surface. A water-based cleanser cannot remove these impurities, that’s why it’s important to start your cleansing routine with the makeup remover, and then wash your face with a cleanser. This way your cleanser has a better chance of really working into your skin to remove grime and sweat.
