As the name suggests, double cleansing is washing your face twice. It sounds like something that wastes our time that is why many women tend to skip this process. I know I have been one of them. We constantly hear experts admit that washing our face just once, it is not enough. Also, they constantly suggest us to choose a good cleanser which will at least work more than a normal one by not only deep-cleaning our face, but in the meanwhile, will protect it.

How to double cleanse?
Even though some of us have been double cleansing for years without even knowing it, and all thanks to Korean beauty regimen, it’s time to once and for all learn how to double clean the skin in the easiest, simple way possible. Double cleansing is simply the process of removing the make-up excess sebum and dead skin until all signs of grime and build-up are removed before then getting down to cleansing the skin in the standard way. All this to fully ensure that the skin is perfectly clean, without any barriers, and prepped and primed for receiving all the benefits of your products.
Ideally, for the first clean, we should use a cleansing oil or balm to properly remove all traces of make-up on our skin. Then, this should be followed by a facial wash with a foam cleanser or a cleansing milk to remove all of our water-based dirt. The second cleaning should also be the one that prepares our skin for the serum and then moisturizer.
