Double Cleansing - Benefits of Double Cleansing
Clear skin paves the way for a nourished glow. A thoroughly cleansed skin responds better to the nutrients present in the skincare products and treatments and gives faster results. So, if you think that wiping your skin with makeup remover or cleansing with soap and water is enough to clean your face off all the dirt, oil and impurities, it’s time to reconsider. At the end of the day, when your skin has all sorts of gunk and oil within its pores, you need a cleansing method that gives your skin a squeaky-clean feel. Say hi to the double cleansing method. The double cleansing method ensures that all the impurities from your skin are thoroughly removed, revealing fresh and dewy skin. Scroll down to read more about it and why you must incorporate it into your daily routine.
What Is The Double Cleansing Method?
Double cleansing is a Korean beauty skincare trend that involves cleaning your face twice - first with an oil-based cleanser and then with a water-based cleanser. Double cleansing your skin helps remove stubborn dirt, oil, grime and pollutants deeply from your pores, leaving it clean, refreshed, and ready for the rest of your skincare routine. The first cleanser helps break down the makeup residue, excess oil and sunscreen from your skin. Whereas, the second cleanser helps clear off all the remaining dirt, sweat and oil while mildly exfoliating and hydrating the skin.
The Best Way To Do Double Cleansing
- Take a scoop of cleansing balm or a few drops of cleansing oil and massage it gently to your dry skin to break down makeup, dirt and oil. Alternatively, you can also put micellar water on a cotton pad and wipe your face with it. The Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water is an oil-infused micellar water that gently removes stubborn, waterproof makeup and dirt while nourishing the skin.
- Rinse your face with warm water.
- Then, take a water-based cleanser or facewash and gently massage it on your skin with your fingers for not more than 60 seconds. Focus on the corners of your nose and mouth to remove any remaining residues. Try the Garnier Gentle Soothing Face Wash, a soap-free gel facewash that gently removes all the dirt and impurities from your skin without stripping off the skin’s natural moisture.
- Rinse off and pat dry.
Benefits of Double Cleansing
Double cleansing offers several benefits for the skin, such as:
Thoroughly Cleanses the Skin
The double cleansing method helps clear off all the impurities from the skin by effectively breaking down any excess oil, makeup or product build-up.
Double cleansing helps eliminate chances of breakouts and irritation in the skin. Cleansing your face with only a facewash can leave behind dirt, oil, and makeup residues on the skin, leading to clogged pores that is one of the major causes of breakouts. Double cleansing ensures that all impurities are removed from the skin, leaving it clean and free from acne-causing bacteria.
Improves Skin Texture
Double cleansing can also improve the skin texture and give you an even skin tone. Effective cleansing helps break down and remove dead skin cells while promoting cell turnover to reveal a brighter, more youthful-looking complexion.
Enhances Skincare Routine
Double cleansing enhances the rest of your skincare routine by ensuring that your skin is clean and free from impurities. When your skin is thoroughly cleansed, it can absorb the active ingredients present in your skincare products better. This means that your serums, moisturizers, and other treatments will be more effective, giving you better results.
However tired or exhausted you are, ensure to double cleanse before you hit the bed for healthy skin. While looking for double cleansing products, consider your skin type and pick suitable products that do not strip off the natural oils and make your skin excessively dry. The best time to double cleanse your skin is before the nighttime skincare routine as your skin is exposed to all the impurities in the day, which must be removed before your skin goes into repair mode overnight.
