The art of double cleansing
Is glowing skin on your New Year's resolutions list? Try this method of cleansing for a more thorough way of removing impurities.
Double cleansing is a two-step skincare technique often used to unblock clogged pores and thoroughly clean the skin, which can help to reduce the appearance of acne scarring and hyperpigmentation over time.
Not only is the double-cleanse more effective at removing make-up, grime and sweat, it also allows the skin to better absorb your serums and moisturisers.
How to double cleanse
The method works by cleansing the skin with two different types of cleansers in order to double up the effect. Usually this is achieved with one oil-based cleanser and one water-based cleanser, but two water-based cleansers can be used if your skin doesn't agree with the application of oils.
Double cleansing is most effective at the end of the day, when you want to remove any make-up or general grime. However, you can absolutely double cleanse in the morning, if this is more suitable for your lifestyle. In terms of frequency, double cleansing should be a part of your daily skincare routine.
Who is double cleansing for?
Double cleansing works for any skin type, but oily and acne-prone skin may benefit the most from this cleansing method. The important part of double cleansing is finding the right products for your skin.
