Double Cleansing: What It Is & Why You Should Do It

Double Cleansing: What It Is & Why You Should Do It

An extra step for extra glow. 

Just as the name implies, double cleansing is a two-step process of washing your face, which became popular through traditional Korean 10-step skincare regimens.   

Cleansing is considered to be one of the most important steps in your routine. Washing your face can decrease acne and significantly improve your complexion. Typically, double cleansing involves using an oil-based cleanser first, followed by a water-based cleanser. Because oil attracts oil, starting with an oil cleanser will draw out and dissolve oil-based impurities. Cleansing with a water-based cleanser next will help eliminate any remaining water-based impurities, like dirt or sweat. It may add a few extra minutes to your daily regimen, but your skin will thank you.

Our cleanse mini duo kit contains the perfect pair for your double cleansing routine: makeupmelt cleansing balm and cloudcleanse cloud-whipped foam cleanser. Make double cleansing a fun and seamless experience and get double the benefits for your skin health. First, apply our makeupmelt cleansing balm to remove your makeup and lift away grime that sits on top of your skin. Our gentle formula glides easily on your skin without tugging or causing irritation. 

Use the included spatula to scoop out a dime-sized amount of product, and gently massage onto dry skin in upward and outward circular motions, focusing on the areas that need the most attention. Rinse with warm water or wipe off with a damp washcloth. 

Once you clear away impurities on the surface, your regular cleanser will work better and give your skin a deeper clean without stripping away moisture. Apply cloudcleanse next to refine your pores, balance your skin’s pH, and give your complexion a fresh, clean feel. Use 1-2 pumps of foam and gently massage onto a wet face and feel the dirt wash away. Rinse with warm water, then pat dry.    

If you are new to double cleansing, we suggest trying it out before bedtime. Harmful bacteria and pollutants accumulate on your skin throughout the day, so it is important to cleanse your skin at the end of the day (at the very least). Sleeping with makeup on is also a big no-no and can lead to increased breakouts, so don’t forget to wash it off! 

To achieve your best glow, we highly recommend double cleansing for all skin types. This smart cleansing method will make your skin look and feel twice as nice!
