Double Cleansing – The New Skincare Fad?

Hello guys,
I am sure all of us wash our face at least 2-3 times a day to keep it oil free and squeaky clean. We all as well follow the cleansing, toning and moisturizing routine daily to keep our skin healthy and glowing. As cleaning is our first step in our skin care routine, it is extremely important that we clean our face properly so that products from our next step of skin care routine can penetrate into skin well. So therefore let me tell you all a little about the cleansing method that is followed by most of the people in Korea and Japan, which is ‘Double Cleansing’. For people living in countries other than Japan and Korea, it is definitely a new facial care trend.

Double Cleansing - The New Skincare Fad

Double cleansing method:

Double Cleansing is a routine in which you have to first apply cleansing oil/balm all over your face, massage it gently for few minutes to remove the layer of makeup and dirt from your face and then wash it off with lukewarm water. This helps to remove all the makeup from your face which our normal face wash won’t be able to remove and it also helps to remove the layer of dirt and oil from your face.
The next step is to wash your face with your regular face wash. This helps to remove the excess make up that is still present on your skin and it makes your skin look squeaky clean and healthy. This routine also helps products like serums, moisturizers and other creams and lotions to penetrate deep into our skin, which help us to obtain best results from these products.
Double cleansing is one for the best methods for deep cleaning your face; it helps you to keep your skin healthy and clean and successfully removes the layer of makeup and dirt from your face. Double cleansing is also considered better than using make up removers on face.
It is specially recommended to follow the double cleansing method in your night skin care routine for better results.

Benefits of double cleansing:

• Helps to remove the layer of make up from your face properly
• Makes skin squeaky clean and healthy
• Helps serums and moisturizer penetrate deep into your skin
• Helps to make you look younger by removing the first layer of dead cells from your face
• Removes impurities from your skin

There are various cleaning oils/balms available in the market like Clinique take the day off cleansing oil/balm, Shiseido perfect cleansing oil, TBS cleansing butter, etc.

Now that all of you’ll know about the various benefits that double cleansing provides, I hope you all will incorporate it in your skincare routine for best results.
