The Ultimate Guide to
Double Cleansing

Healthy, glowing skin starts with an effective cleansing routine. Double cleansing is a method originating from South Korea that has gained popularity in recent years for its effectiveness in removing impurities and keeping the skin healthy.

Here's the ultimate guide to double cleansing, including its benefits and how to incorporate it into your daily routine to achieve radiant skin.

What Is Double Cleansing?

As the name suggests, double cleansing is a two-step cleaning method. The first cleaning is done with an oil-based cleanser, and the second cleaning is done with a water-based cleanser.

The oil-based cleanser helps dissolve oil-soluble products, such as makeup, sunscreen, and excess oil. Then, the water-based cleanser helps remove remaining impurities and deeply cleanse the skin. Together, these two types of cleansing ensure the complete removal of dirt and makeup from the skin.

How to Incorporate Double Cleansing in Your Routine?

Double cleansing your skin may seem like a hassle, but it's actually very simple to incorporate into your daily routine. Here's how to do it:

Step #1: Oil-based cleanser

To remove makeup and excess oil, start by using an oil-based cleanser such as a milk cleanser or a makeup remover balm.

Gently massage the product onto your dry face to dissolve impurities, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

Step #2: Water-based cleanser

After using an oil-based cleanser, apply a water-based cleanser such as micellar water or foam cleanser to your damp face.

This second step will eliminate remaining impurities and cleanse your skin deeply.

Step #3: Continue Your Routine

After double cleansing, continue with your personalized skincare routine, such as your serum and moisturizer.

Clean skin is better prepared to absorb skincare, helping to maximize the effectiveness of your skincare routine.

As this technique helps remove makeup and sunscreen, it is recommended to use it in the evening.

The Benefits of Double Cleansing

1. Deep cleansing

Double cleansing effectively removes all skin impurities, including stubborn makeup, pollution and excess oil. It thus helps prevent skin problems such as pimples and blackheads.

2. Better effectiveness

Clean skin is better prepared to absorb skincare. By eliminating dirt and oil barriers, double cleansing allows products to penetrate the skin more effectively, ensuring optimal effectiveness.

3. Glowy skin 

Skin free of impurities is skin that shines naturally. Double cleansing promotes radiance by removing dead cells on the skin's surface that can make the complexion appear dull.

4. Prevention of signs of aging 

Well-cleansed skin is less prone to damage from free radicals and pollution. In this sense, double cleansing can help somewhat slow down the skin aging process caused by external factors.

In short, double cleansing is a two-step cleansing method that removes traces of makeup and dirt effectively. For any questions regarding the cleansing step in your care routine or any other question, make an appointment for a telephone consultation to find the care routine suited to your needs.
