Honestly, I don’t remember a time when people didn’t have at least one K-beauty product in their skincare routine. Since the past few years, Korean beauty products have taken over the skincare industry. Everybody knows about them and everybody wants them. Among sheet masks, essences and serums there is one more Korean skincare ritual that’s gaining a lot of popularity and that’s double cleansing. In a nutshell, it is basically washing your face twice with two different types of cleansers.
I know what you’re thinking by now—“Ain’t nobody got time for that”. Before you make up your mind about this Korean skincare practise, hear me out. With pollution and heat on the rise, you should do everything you can to protect your skin. Hence, washing your face twice might not be such a bad idea.
In this cleansing method, you’re supposed to wash your face twice, with two different cleansers to cleanse two different kinds of impurities. It involves two types of cleansers:
Since water and oil don’t mix, your usual water-based cleansers won’t be able to cleanse oil-based impurities. Excess sebum, sunscreen and makeup residue can cause acne and infections. Hence, including an oil-based cleanser in your skincare routine thoroughly cleanse your skin. Following it up with a water-based cleanser will deep cleanse your pores and get rid of sweat and dirt. Therefore, if you want clean and clear skin, double cleansing is the way to go. This method will also help all your other skin care products work more efficiently since your pores will be thoroughly clean.
Aaaand you’re done. This cleansing method may seem tedious initially but it’ll help you get clear and glowing skin in the long run.
