You Cleanse, But Do You Double Cleanse Tho?

September 4th, 2020 at 1:03 am

What – we have to wash our face twice in one routine?! You don’t have to, but it has been proven to be an effective way of cleansing your face and removing all traces of a hot, sweaty day (and a beat mug!).

Following the 60 second rule (twice), double cleansing consists of two cleansers – an oil-based cleanser and a water-based cleanser. The oil-based cleanser is used first to dissolve oil, remove makeup and debris, while the second cleanser targets your skin type and concerns. Licensed aesthetician, Nayamka Roberts-Smith (@LaBeautyologist), suggests doing this twice a day – in the morning to prepare your skin and the evening to remove impurities.

It’s important to remember that skincare always depends on your skin type, so make sure you choose the right cleansers to make this routine work. Look out for gentle cleansers with hydrating ingredients to avoid over-washing and over-drying your face. Here are a few suggestions from Sephora:

Farmacy – Green Clean Cleansing Balm & Clean Bee Gel Cleanser

Clinique – Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm & Liquid Facial Soap

Fresh Beauty – Seaberry Skin Nutrition Cleansing Oil & Rose Cleansing Foam

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With double cleansing doing the extra work to remove stubborn pore-blockages and acne-causing bacteria, you should be able to see your skin glow and provide a squeaky clean canvas to skincare treatments for better absorption and maximum results. Try it out!
