What exactly is double cleansing? Glad you asked!
Double cleansing is a Korean beauty, or K-beauty, skin care trend that’s taking over the beauty scene. The regimen is just what you may think, cleansing twice in your skin care routine. The concept is to first use a no-rinse cleanser, like a cleansing oil, which is to remove any surface makeup, dirt, impurities or excess oils. Following that is to use a rinse-off or foaming cleanser to remove any lingering impurities or cleanser residue from the surface of your skin.
What Are the Benefits of Double Cleansing?
It is super important to remove makeup, dirt, and pollutants that have accumulated on your skin during the day, before heading to bed. Double cleansing can be beneficial to everyone, but especially for those who tend to wear a lot of makeup. There are also two major benefits to the technique. First up, when you wear foundation, double cleansing scores you a better clean. Some may think that quickly sweep wiping off your face may do the trick, but it doesn’t. Makeup is resting deep within your pores, and if this makeup sits on your skin overnight, it could cause you to wake up to a duller-looking complexion or even breakouts.
That makes room for any products you apply afterwards to penetrate deeper, making them more effective. Clean skin will allow active ingredients to penetrate better and work more effectively.
Also, if you live in the city where it’s heavy levels of pollution, you should consider double cleansing of your skin. That’s because the high pollution levels could be causing microscopic pollution particles to sit on the surface of your skin and wreak havoc. When environmental aggressors aren’t whisked off your skin’s surface day in and day out, they can prohibit your skin’s regeneration process overnight which can lead to visible signs of premature skin aging over time.
Even if you don’t wear makeup regularly, it’s still very important to make sure you’re cleansing at the end of the day, because it’s for sure beneficial not only to remove makeup, but also dirt and pollution that accumulates on your skin during the day. These pollutants cause oxidative damage to the skin, and they contribute to the breakdown of collagen and may create development of wrinkles and sunspots.
