Double cleansing is not double the trouble of doing so. In fact, once you start implementing double washing into your nightly skincare routine, you will most likely notice skin improvement within two weeks. Less breakouts, smoother texture and a more clean finish feel. The double cleansing craze spun its way into the spotlight thanks to Korean Skincare and its many steps to a healthier face. The purpose of double cleansing is the total removal of all dirt (yes your face gets legit dirty by end of day), makeup, and environmental pollutants. Your face is never clean unless it’s been cleaned twice.

How to double cleanse is easy, start with an oil based cleanser and continue with a water based soap or foam cleanser. Facial oils guarantee the removal of makeup, while the water based cleanser, lathers the skin with natural and moisturizing emollients.
