Double cleansing is popular in both Japanese and K-Beauty skincare routines. It’s one more step but it can work wonders for your skin. Here’s how to double cleanse.
Oil Cleanse First
The first step is to cleanse with an oil-based cleanser to dissolve oil, makeup, SPF, and daily grime. Not to worry if you struggle with acne or oily skin as consistent oil cleansing will help to minimize your oil. You can use a K-Beauty oil cleanser or organic and unrefined olive oil.
The first step cleanses your skin’s surface and the second step cleanses your pores. It is important that you use a gentle water-based cleanser for the second step. You can use a K-Beauty 2-step cleansing product or Cetaphil. Don’t worry, cleansing twice with gentle cleansers won’t irritate sensitive skin.
Finish As Usual
Double cleanse in both the AM and PM, then finish up with your normal skincare routine—either with K-Beauty products or your products of choice. This might include applying toner and AM/PM eye cream, serum, and moisturizer.
