What is Double Cleansing and what does it consist of?

Double Cleansing consists of washing your face twice: first with an oil-based cleanser and then with a water-based cleanser. In fact, cleansing is one of the most important steps: the Korean Beauty Routine is based on the double Cleansing Method: this is a really effective practice because it prepares the skin for the next steps of facial care, and keeps it healthy and glowy.

How do you do Double Cleansing?

It’s a two-step process. First with an oil-based detergent and then with a water-based detergent.

The first rule of Double Cleansing.

“The oil dissolves the oil”: the oil of the detergent is attracted by the fat of the sebaceous glands and cleans them in depth without removing lipids and ceramides.  Start by removing the makeup with an oil or cleansing balm. Massage the face, to increase circulation and obtain a brighter and firmer skin. But be careful: Avoid detergents based on coconut oil: they could clog the pores.

The second step.

“Rinse out the foam-based cleaner.” The time has finally come to rinse away the water-based debris that the oil does not remove.

When should Double Cleansing be done?

Double Cleansing is a must for any beauty regimen dedicated to healthy skin. Remember to do it at least twice a day, usually once in the morning and once in the evening, then continue with the other steps. Double Cleansing is always important and gives different benefits depending on the time of day in which it is carried out. In fact, in the morning to remove the accumulated sebum from the skin, in the evening to remove impurities collected from the skin during the day.

How to Do Double Cleansing.

Simple as that. Just use some sweetness. Massage dry skin with circular movements, add lukewarm water to emulsify, rinse.

Why is Double Cleansing important?

Washing your face once does not remove all the dirt. You need to make sure that the layer of sebum, sunscreen and makeup separates, so that the ingredients of the products act. The best Korean dermatologists claim that acne, excess sebum production and other skin problems could be eliminated by proper cleansing. Never miss these daily rituals with your skin, to make it always gorgeous.
