What is Double Cleansing?

By now I'm sure you have heard of the double cleansing method, where you cleanse in two parts. You might be thinking? I can barely convince myself to do a one-time cleanse at the end of the day, but trust me, your skin will thank you. 

 

The first step is using an oil-based cleanser or balm, followed by a water-based cleanser. The first step helps to break up makeup and draws out oil-based impurities such as sebum, SPF, and pollutants while the second step cleanses water-based debris like sweat and dirt, and any residue left from makeup and SPF. Now would be a good time to tell you that if you are still using cleansing wipes, those just are not cutting it, not to mention single-use facial wipes are a huge waste! If you suffer from frequent breakouts or dry skin, introducing double cleansing into your nighttime routine will be a huge benefit. Not only is double cleansing meant to give you a more thorough cleanse, but it can also revitalize dull skin and allow your other skincare products to penetrate more effectively.
