Let's talk about Double Cleansing
𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐃𝐨𝐮𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐂𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠? Cleansing your skin twice to maximize the impact of your skin care routine (without irritating your skin.)
𝐖𝐡𝐲 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐈 𝐃𝐨𝐮𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐂𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐞? When many people deal with skin problems like breakouts, pigmentation, and redness, they tend to steer towards the cosmetic security blankets (aka long wear & full coverage foundation, products are designed to stay on your skin.) Without a thorough removal process, many people are trapped in the harmful cycles. Double cleansing ensures the removal of makeup, sunscreen, dead skin cells and excess oil accumulated throughout the day.
𝐈𝐬 𝐃𝐨𝐮𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐂𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐬𝐮𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐒𝐤𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐲𝐩𝐞𝐬? Yes, the key is to maximize the skincare product usage (essence, serum, moisturizer) after double cleansing.

1st Cleanse- Use balm or oil based cleanser to dissolve makeup, sunscreen, excess oil, etc. ( For most case, this step would replace your “makeup wipes” )
2nd Cleanse- use water based or gel based mild cleanser to clean your skin ( this step takes care of the rest of the impurities on your skin like dead skin cells)
𝐖𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐈 𝐃𝐨𝐮𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐂𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐞? Anytime before bed. This depends on your day or night shift. Double cleanse right before your skin and body get it’s full beauty rest.

𝐈 𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐮𝐩 𝐰𝐢𝐩𝐞𝐬, 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐈 𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐃𝐨𝐮𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐂𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐞? My best advice is to discontinue using makeup wipes, replace those makeup wipes with oil cleanse. Oil-based cleanser gives you a deeper cleanse and it's also very gentle on the skin. Ditching those makeup wipes also will help prevent wrinkles in the long run.
