What is the double cleanse?
The double cleanse is the cleansing method Korean women use for clear skin. It involves washing your face in two steps, first by using an oil-based cleanser, followed by a water-based cleanser. The first step draws out oil-based impurities such as sebum, SPF, and pollutants while the second step cleanses water-based debris such as sweat and dirt (Unfortunately cleansing tissues won't do the job well!) Get started on the double cleanse to prevent breakouts and start with a clean canvas for skincare and makeup.
Double cleanse twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. Double cleansing in the morning will remove any oil and sweat your skin has produced overnight, as well as any remaining products from the night before. Double cleansing in the evening will remove any makeup, SPF, and other impurities your skin has collected throughout the day.
Definitely not. When used properly, an oil cleanser doesn't add more oil to your face. In fact, it washes away the excess oil on your face, keeping your skin clean and helping balance your skin's moisture level. This means your skin is less likely to break out!
Not at all! Once you get the hang of it, it becomes second nature. Once you experience the magic of the double cleanse, you will not want to cleanse your skin any other way.
Oil cleansers gently remove excess sebum and help balance your skin, preventing excess sebum production. You'll notice that using an oil cleanser makes your face less shiny over time.
Double cleansing in the morning is essential because your skin still produces oil and sweat while you're sleeping. Also, double cleansing removes any of the remaining products you put on the night before. Finally, double cleansing helps prep your skin for your morning skin care routine.
No. Oil cleansers don’t strip your skin of lipids and ceramides that are essential to keeping your skin balanced and healthy. If you use a water-based cleanser that suits your skin type and needs, it won't strip your skin of moisture, either.
