Q: So, what is a “Double Cleanse”?
A: Have you ever washed your face and then followed up with a toner afterward and been mortified to see buildup left on your cotton? What’s with that? Believe it or not, this actually is a signifier that you are not properly and effectively cleansing your skin. But when incorporating a Double Cleansing routine this will be a thing of the past.
Originally made popular and brought more mainstream by South Korea, the concept of the Double Cleanse is quite simple-
First, cleanse your skin with an oil-based cleanser to break down impurities such as SPF, Makeup, and Pollutants. This is even more important if you wear waterproof/water resistant cosmetic products. I recommend our Gentle Rejuvenating Cleanser or Blue Aura Cleansing Water for this step.
The second cleanse’s (traditionally a water-based cleanser) purpose is to cleanse the actual skin. By removing the first layer of impurities and then properly cleansing the skin, it is easier to remove pore-clogging and blemish-provoking buildup. For this, the Black Mint Cleanser would be an excellent choice.
The result? More thoroughly cleansed and happy skin of course.
Q: Is a Double Cleanse necessary?
A: It really depends. I know, I know! I just built you up on the importance of Double Cleansing only to say...mostly. Let me explain-
In the AM, a Double Cleanse is rarely necessary. Unless you are extremely oily, it isn’t necessary to Double Cleanse in the morning as there isn’t enough buildup of oils overnight to justify it. Instead, I will use a gentle no-rinse cleanser like our Blue Aura Cleansing Water to refresh and balance my complexion before applying my morning skincare routine.
Now, your PM routine is a whole other conversation. For me, Double Cleansing in the evening is one of my personal skincare “non-negotiables”. It is so important to properly cleanse away impurities your skin has built up throughout the day so that your skincare routine can work at its highest potential. As someone who is extremely acne-prone trust me, it makes all the difference in the world.
