Double cleanse is a fast-growing skin care trend that’s gaining traction all over the world. If you’re not familiar with double cleanse, let’s take a look at how it works.
First, you use an oil-based cleanser to wipe off makeup and oil buildup. Micellar water, which is a neutral non-lathering emulsion, or an oil-based cleanser, will gently remove the makeup and oils and gently wipe them off leaving the natural hydrating oils behind. These products break down the sebum of the skin and makeup, which are both also oil-based.
Second, use a lathering cleanser and water. It’s as easy as that!
You’ll also need to determine which ingredients to look for in your products, which will depend on the type of skin you have and the particular skin conditions you suffer from.
If you have acne, make sure that the cleanser contains an anti-bacterial ingredient to kill bacteria. If you have dry skin, use an astringent during double cleanse to lock in moisture and make it more supple. If you have oily skin, you will need to use a moisturizer to hydrate your skin while preventing excessive oil production. It will also help to protect against future oil production. and repair your skin if you use an astringent and moisturizer together. Using an exfoliator on the other hand, will remove dead skin cells and keep your complexion smooth and soft and help to prevent acne breakouts and other visible signs of aging.
And you’ll definitely want to stay away from products that contain fragrances, preservatives or colorings as they can clog the pores and irritate your sensitive skin.
If you follow a regular cleansing and moisturizing regimen, double cleanse will keep your skin looking fresh, healthy and glowing.
