How to Double Cleanse Your Face for Clear, Radiant Skin.


Double Cleansing


Double cleansing means using two different of cleansers; an oil based cleanser followed by a water-based cleanser to thoroughly cleanse the face.


The oil-based cleanser helps to dissolve and remove makeup, dirt, and excess sebum from the skin, which can clog pores and cause breakouts. It also helps to break down waterproof sunscreen and environmental pollutants. The water-based cleanser, used after the oil-based cleanser, helps to remove any remaining impurities, sweat, and debris, while also providing a gentle and refreshing cleanse.


This two-step process ensures that the skin is thoroughly cleansed without stripping it of its natural oils, maintaining the skin's moisture barrier. The result is a fresh, clean, and radiant complexion.
