Clean skin is the foundation of any good skincare routine. There’s only one step worth repeating: cleansing. Cleaning your skin removes dirt and impurities and helps the other products absorb better.
You don’t have to wash your face twice. Instead, you can use two different cleansers that are carefully selected. Cleaners designed to target specific skin concerns will help you get the best results and clean your face without irritation.
Double cleansing is still recommended, even if your face doesn’t have makeup on. Double cleansing helps remove sunscreen (which you wear daily, I’m sure) and any dirt, oil, pollution, and bacteria your skin has accumulated throughout the day. This buildup can cause clogged skin pores, acne, dullness, or even visible signs of aging. Is there any other reason to keep our skin clean?
How To Double Clean
Use an oil-based cleansing product, micellar solution, or cleansing balm to remove makeup, sunscreen, impurities, and sebum from the skin’s surface.
The second cleanser is designed to remove any sweat, pollutants, or debris that may still be on the skin. Any gentle cleanser will do, but a targeted cleaner is better for addressing specific skin issues. Win-win.
