Double cleansing is not new on the beauty scene, but we still receive many questions about it. So let’s look at what double cleansing is all about:
What is double cleansing?
Double cleansing is the act of washing your face twice with two different types of cleansers: start first with an oil-based cleanser (like Skintella Cleansing Sherbet), then follow up with a water-based cleanser (like CoalFace Soap or CoalBerry Cleanser).
Why double cleanse?
Our skin typically has two types of impurities that we need to cleanse: oil-based and water-based. Oil-based impurities are makeup and skincare residue, and excess sebum. Water-based impurities are like sweat, dust, and dirt from environmental factors.
Double cleansing with two different types of cleansers is the most gentle yet effective way to remove oil-based and water-based impurities. Double cleansing is the best way to ensure the skin is thoroughly cleansed without stripping it and causing discomfort or long-term damage.
Who should double cleanse?
Double cleansing is for everyone! No matter what skin type or skin concern you have, you should double cleanse because everyone has both oil-based and water-based impurities on their skin that need thorough cleansing. Just make sure you choose the right cleansers and follow up with ample hydration, and moisturize!
