When it comes to skincare, sometimes a simple cleanse just isn't enough. That's where double cleansing comes in. This powerful skincare method involves using two different types of cleansers to thoroughly and effectively remove makeup, sunscreen, and other impurities on your face. Not only does it leave your skin feeling soft and smooth, but it also enhances the effectiveness of your other skincare products.

What Is Double Cleansing?

Double cleansing is a game-changer for your skin. By combining an oil-based cleanser with a water-based cleanser, you can tackle even the most stubborn makeup and dirt. The oil-based cleanser breaks down the grime on your skin and in your pores, while the water-based cleanser targets specific skin concerns, such as acne or dryness.

I used to struggle with tight, flaky skin until I discovered the wonders of double cleansing. Adding a second cleanser to my routine, like a gentle cleansing essence or micellar water, took my skincare regimen to the next level.

Double Cleansing Supplies

To get started with double cleansing, you'll need a few key products. One of my favorites is the Now Solutions Soothing Rose Facial Cleansing Oil. This luxurious oil is loaded with squalene and vitamin E, gently removing makeup without stripping your skin of essential nutrients. Of course, you can also DIY your own cleansing oil or opt for a cleansing balm.

Another essential product is homemade micellar water. Made with organic green tea, aloe gel, and vitamin C, this gentle yet effective cleanser removes any residual oil while soothing and nourishing your skin.

Double Cleansing Routine

The beauty of the double cleansing routine lies in its simplicity. All you need are a nourishing oil and a gentle cleanser. From there, you can choose to add additional products like serums, moisturizers, or eye creams to target specific trouble spots.

Step 1: Apply Oil-Based Cleanser

Start by applying the oil-based cleanser to dry skin. Take a nickel-sized amount of the Now Foods Soothing Rose Facial Cleansing Oil and gently massage it into your skin using circular motions. Focus on dry areas, such as the cheeks, and don't forget to cleanse your eyelids and lashes too. For extra pampering, hold a warm washcloth over your face to steam your pores and allow the oil to sink in. Finally, rinse your face with warm water to remove the oil.

Step 2: Apply Second Cleanser

Once the oil-based impurities have been removed, it's time to apply the water-based cleanser. One option is to use a foaming cleanser or a cleansing milk, but my personal favorite is micellar water. Most micellar waters use soap to cleanse the skin, but with our homemade version, we combine aloe vera, green tea, and a touch of vitamin C for an antioxidant boost. Simply pour some of the homemade micellar water onto a soft cloth or cotton round and gently swipe it over your face, avoiding the eye area.

Step 3: Finish Your Skincare Routine

Once you've completed the double cleansing process, you can continue with the rest of your skincare routine. This may include toning, applying serums, moisturizer, or sunscreen, depending on the time of day. Remember, double cleansing is not necessary every day, especially if you're not wearing heavy makeup or sunscreen. However, when you do have makeup or high SPF products on, double cleansing ensures a thorough cleanse.

Be sure to consider your skin type and specific concerns when selecting your products. Everyone's skin is unique, and certain products may suit your needs better than others. Experiment, find what works for you, and enjoy the transformative power of double cleansing!
