The Ultimate Guide to Double Cleansing for All Skin Types
Written by Keren Dinkin
If you love all things K–beauty, chances are you’ve heard of the double cleansing method. It makes up the first two steps of the 10-step skincare routine that K–beauty is known for and was the secret of Asian's glowing skin.
Why double-cleanse, you may ask? What’s wrong with washing your face just once?
This article breaks down all you need to know about this method, including the steps you need to take, what products to use, and why it’s the perfect cleansing technique for your nighttime routine. Let’s dive in.
What Is Double Cleansing?
Double cleansing involves washing your face with two cleansers: an oil-based and then a water-based one. This technique originated in Japan and South Korea but has become popular worldwide.
This cleansing method is preferred to be done in the evening: when you double cleanse as the first step of your nighttime routine, you are sure to get every last bit of dirt and makeup out of your skin before going to bed.
Benefits of Double Cleansing
Why do we need double cleansing? Using two cleansers ensures that all of your skin’s needs are covered.
The oil-based cleanser first removes oil-based impurities, such as sebum, pollution, makeup, sunscreen, and residue of other skincare products. The water-based cleanser then removes dirt and sweat.
This cleansing method cleanses your face thoroughly as it nourishes and revitalizes your skin. It also enables better absorption of the other skincare products you will use in your routine.
This method works wonders for dry, oily, combination, or acne-prone skin types as it removes dirt and bacteria and only leaves what you need for nourishment. Just make sure to use oil-based and water-based cleansers with gentle formulas, so they don’t strip your skin of its natural oils.
