What is double cleansing and is it right for me?

We’ve all done it…been too tired to take our makeup off after a night out. Inevitably, the next morning we’re then faced with our own dry, smudged reflections and unattractive breakouts in the harsh morning light.

Well, we are here to tell you just how important it is to remove makeup properly and fully cleanse your face.

Step right up for a handy guide to glowing skin, folks!

The importance of facial cleansing

Our faces bear a lot of the brunt of our day – with everything from makeup and facial product build-up to harsh weather and pollution exposure. The sensitive skin on our faces often requires a little extra TLC by home time.

Facial cleansing ensures that dirt, grime and leftover makeup is removed from the skin, stopping any build-up of bacteria that may cause breakouts, irritations or skin infections.

Certain skin types may be more prone to a buildup of sebaceous materials, resulting in blocked pores and breakouts, which can be exacerbated by the use of make-up or heavy skincare products. 

Consulting with a skincare professional, whether in a clinic or even over a beauty counter, can help you to gain insight into the needs of your unique skin and get you started on forming the perfect skincare routine for you.

What is double cleansing, and why is it effective?

Double cleansing is a process that involves two parts: the first step involves breaking down makeup and grime on the skin, and the second step acts to deeply cleanse the skin beneath. 

By following this process, the skin receives a deeper and more effective clean, reducing the amount of residue left in and on the skin, making for a clearer, healthier complexion.

By working to efficiently break down and remove makeup, followed by thorough cleansing, a double cleanse creates an excellent line of defence against lingering dirt and sebaceous buildup. 

This helps to be doubly sure that your face is returned to its natural state of health, which also aids in reducing skin damage in the long term.

How to double cleanse – finding the right products for you

Double cleansing will look slightly different for everyone, as different skin types will require different products to achieve the best results. 

Whether you have oily skin that needs oil-free products, dry skin that would soak up an oil face cleanser and other facial cleansing oil products like a cold drink on a hot day, or slightly more temperamental combination skin that could need the best of both worlds… 

…Once you identify what your skin needs, it will be easier to find the best routine for you.
