Importance of Double-Cleanse
Double cleansing is a method of cleansing your face twice: First, with an oil-based cleanser and again with a water-based cleanser. It helps remove oil-based impurities such as sebum, SPF, and pollutants that can remain on the skin even after washing your face once. The second step cleansing will clean much deeper into the pores to remove any remaining impurities.
The benefit of double cleansing is that the first cleanser will break down any makeup, remove dirt and excess oils from the day and clean your skin. The second cleanser will address your particular skin type or concern and should have ingredients to hydrate, smooth or exfoliate, treat acne. The purpose of the first cleanse is to allow the second cleanser to truly do its job and clean the skin. Clean skin will allow active ingredients to penetrate better and work more effectively
Using the best double-cleansing products for your skin type allows you to avoid over-washing and over-drying your skin. If you strip too much of our natural oils, our body can respond by producing more oil that can lead to breakouts and irritation.
