Let’s face it: our skin gets dirty. It’s the price we pay for putting ourselves into a world full of sweat, grime, and pollution — all in the name of living our best lives. But a fresh face is possible with a skincare method that’s so nice that you have to do it twice. That’s right, we’re talking about the benefit of double cleansing. The twofold technique is adored by skincare buffs and amateurs alike, but why? We’re doubling down on everything you need to know about this skincare savior.
What is double cleansing?
Double cleansing is nothing new. Despite its recent popularity in the west, the double cleansing method is a centuries-old practice with roots in Japan and Korea. As part of the double cleansing process, two separate cleansers are required: an oil-based cleanser and a water-based cleanser. (Hence the “double” in double cleansing.)
How do the oil- and water-based cleansers work together?
While it may feel counterintuitive to add oil to your skin, oil-cleansing can be beneficial. Oil-based cleansers are a gentler way to dissolve oil-based impurities — like makeup and pollution — from the skin. Oil-based cleansers also allow the skin to hold onto hydration, unlike more moisture-stripping formulas that can leave skin feeling dry and tight.
After rubbing away the first layer of oil-based build-up, water-based cleansers are used to wash away the remaining dirt, dead skin, and debris on the skin’s surface that oil-cleansing might have missed. Double cleanings are a thorough way to wash away dull complexions for healthier, glowy skin for any skin type.
