Double Cleansing is the new buzz word on the skincare scene but what is it and what are the benefits?
What is Double Cleansing?
Double cleansing is as simple as it sounds. It involves thoroughly cleansing your face with two cleansers. The only catch is that the cleansers need to be two different types to have the desired effect... an oil based cleanser and a water based cleanser.
So why Double Cleanse?
Not only is a double cleanse meant to give a more thorough, deep cleanse, but it can also revitalize dull skin and allow other skin care products to penetrate more effectively.
How do you Double Cleanse?
Double Cleansing is an end of the day cleanse for your face.
Firstly you apply an oil based cleanser to your face such as Chamomile Cleansing Balm or Macadamia & Jojoba Cleansing Oil. Massage the cleanser into your face and remove with a reusuable cleansing wipe or flannel. This step removes oil-based impurities, including makeup, sunscreen, sebrum and pollution. By getting rid of this stuff first, the second water-based cleanser can really work its way into the skin, removing the likes of grime and sweat.
The second step is cleansing the face with a Cleansing Bar like our soothing Nighttime Cleansing Bar. Wash your face with a cleansing bar to remove oil and other excesses. Whilst washing your face, take a minute massage the skin with the rich lather. Once the minute is up, rinse off with lukewarm water and pat the skin with a dry towel.
It’ll probably take around a week for you to notice the benefits of double cleansing, whether that’s a brighter complexion, fewer breakouts, or simply cleaner-feeling skin.
