Should I Be Double Cleansing?

Have you ever wondered why double cleansing is necessary? Isn't one cleanse enough? Let me explain to you the importance of double cleansing and how to properly do it in this blog post. 

What are the benefits of double cleansing?

After a long day of wearing makeup, it is important to double cleanse to ensure your skin feels fresh and clean. Simply using a makeup wipe or cleansing once may not remove all the makeup and oil from your pores. Even if it is not visible, residue may still be present on your face. 

Leaving makeup and oils on your skin, especially overnight, increases the risk of waking up with blemishes and blackheads. Many of us have experienced the discomfort of falling asleep with makeup on, only to wake up with dry and dirty skin the next day. By double cleansing, you can ensure that your skin is clear and ready for another day of beautiful makeup without causing any harm. 

How do I double cleanse?

Ensuring your skin and pores are completely free from makeup, dirt, and oils, double cleansing is essential. Start by using an oil-based cleanser or makeup remover to break down the makeup and make it easier to remove. This method is much healthier for your skin as it prevents pushing makeup and dirt into your pores; instead, the oil breaks them down and allows them to easily slide off your skin. 

After using the Oil-based cleanser to remove most of the makeup from your face, it's time to switch to your regular facial cleanser. Massage the cleanser gently into your skin to rid any remaining traces of makeup or dirt. Rinse off the cleanser and you're all set! 

So, are you considering adopting a double-cleansing routine?
