How to Double Cleanse for your Skin Type
What is double cleansing?
The double cleanse, as the name suggests is a two-stage process to truly clean and clear the skin of daily impurities.
The first cleanse is designed to soften and remove the most superficial dirt from the top layer of this skin. This would be things such as makeup, sunscreen, or environmental factors such as smoke and pollution.
The second cleanse is designed to work deeper in the skin. This is the cleanse that is going to help remove oil, dirt and build up of debris that has developed inside your skin’s pores.
By completing the double cleanse, you are truly cleaning the skin, which will help fight breakouts, bacteria build up, irritation and ultimately with a cleaner pathway allow your serums to penetrate more effectively within the skin.
How to double cleanse?
Did you know you shouldn't use an active cleanser more than once a day? Over cleansing is common and can leave the skin irritated, stripped of moisture or damaged.
As the first step of the skin care regime, cleansing sets your skin up for what is to come so choose a cleanser with quality ingredients that not only cleans, but also nourishes the skin.
If using an oil cleanser it should always be for the first cleanse, since oil cuts through oil.
AM: Gentle cleanser only
PM: Double cleanse using gentle cleanser first, followed by an active cleanser.
