Double Cleansing: Your guide to clean, hydrated skin.

Double Cleansing: Your guide to clean, hydrated skin.

Discover the power of double cleansing for clean, hydrated skin. Learn the method and benefits of using the Gentle Oil Cleanser followed by the Soothing Cream Cleanser for a refreshed complexion.

Have you heard about the double cleansing method? It's a big deal in the beauty world, and for a good reason. This skincare routine has roots all the way back in 14th-century Asia. 

It starts with an oil cleanser to break down and remove substances like the white paint-like foundation that was popular in Japan and Korea back in the day. 

Today, we will discuss why double cleansing could benefit your skincare routine and exactly how to do it. 

The Importance of Double Cleansing

Your face goes on a little adventure every day. It picks up oil, dirt, and leftover makeup along the way. One quick wash might leave behind some of that day's adventure. That's why double cleansing is like the dynamic duo for your face.

First up is the oil cleanser. It helps you remove the tough stuff, like waterproof mascara or sunscreen. It doesn't fight with your skin; it gently removes the grime.

Next is the foamy cleanser. Think of it as the cool-down after a workout. It takes care of anything the oil cleanser might have missed, leaving your skin feeling refreshed.

And when's the best time for this? Nighttime is perfect. It gives your face a clean bed to sleep in to rest and refresh for the next day. Plus, waking up with clean skin makes your morning routine a breeze.

Here are some other benefits:

  • It can help fight acne by removing the gunk that clogs pores.
  • Your skin can absorb moisturisers better after a good double cleanse.
  • It brightens your complexion since all that dirt and oil isn't dulling your skin.
  • And it's pretty relaxing – a mini facial before bed!

How to Do Double Cleansing

Double cleansing is like a two-step dance for your face, in which each step plays an important role. Here's how to do it right:

  1. Start with Oil: Begin with our Gentle Oil Cleanser. Pump a bit into your dry hands and gently massage it all over your dry face. This is your makeup melting moment. The jojoba, argan, and rosehip oils in the cleanser are not just cleaning, they’re feeding your skin with good stuff like antioxidants and fatty acids. These oils are champs at breaking down stubborn makeup and excess oil.
  2. Rinse Off: After you've massaged the oil in, add a little water to your face to emulsify the cleanser—it'll turn a bit milky. Rinse with warm water, and you’ll notice that the oily mix and the day’s dirt wash right off.
  3. Cream Cleanser Time: Next up, apply a small amount of our Soothing Cream Cleanser to your damp skin. This is your skin-soothing step. Ingredients like chamomile, aloe vera, and cucumber are comfort blankets for your face. They calm things down and make sure your skin stays nice and hydrated.
  4. Final Rinse: Wash the cream cleanser off with warm water. This step sweeps away any lingering impurities that might be hanging around after the oil cleanse.
  5. Pat Dry: Gently pat your face dry with a clean towel. No rubbing – be nice to your skin!
  6. Finish Up: Now that your skin is perfectly clean, it’s ready for the rest of your skincare routine—like toner, serum, moisturiser, or whatever else makes your skin happy.
