Did you know that just by adding one extra step to your daily cleansing routine can work wonders for your skin?
Double cleansing is slightly more time consuming than just washing your face but it is considered a full-proof method of cleaning your face by dermatologists.
Benefits of Double Cleansing
Throughout the day, dirt, pollution, dust, and sebum collect on your skin.
A basic “rinse and go” routine does not help to remove stubborn impurities from your skin. This can lead to a build-up of residue that can clog your pores and eventually cause acne and pimples.
The double cleansing method will also create a fresh base for your serums and moisturizers to absorb well into your skin for maximum effectiveness.
How Should You Double-Cleanse Your Face?
The first step is using any form of cleansing medium to remove impurities from your skin.
These are the 3 most common products that you can use for your first cleanse.
Micellar water is a solution that is effective in removing makeup or dirt from your skin. It is a great option for sensitive or oily and combination skin types because it does not contain any occlusive oils that can clog up your pores. It is as gentle as using water on your face.

Cleansing oils can help to break down the makeup on your skin more gently than makeup wipes. They are effective in removing stubborn and waterproof makeup such as mascara, matte liquid lipsticks, eyeshadow, etc…with little to no tugging.
If you suffer from dry skin, cleansing balms are the way to go. They are not only effective in pulling out the dirt and makeup residue from your skin but they are great for hydrating and holding your skin’s natural moisture.
Cleansing balms are made with a non-greasy and light formula that also makes it suitable for all skin types
The final step is washing your face with a good cleansing gel. Choose a face wash according to your skin type. A good facewash helps with the process of removing any remaining dirt and extra oils from the first step of double cleansing.
And that is all you need to know to clean your face thoroughly. Remember to always protect your skin from SPF to minimize skin damage and take care of your teeth to not only have good skin, but also a smile that glows.
