WTH Is Double Cleansing?


If you’re familiar with K-Beauty skincare, you have probably heard of “Double Cleansing” many times. It is a two-step cleansing routine that consist of first using a oil-cleanser to help you to cleanse out any dirt and break down makeup, following with a foam cleanser.

Here’s is how to properly double cleanse:

1)  Pump an adequate amount of cleansing oil into dry hands and gently massage onto dry face to dissolve makeup and other impurities. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

2)  Following with foam cleanser, dispense an adequate amount to clean hands. Gently massage onto wet face in circular motions. Rinse off thoroughly.

3) Follow up with the rest of your skincare.

It’s the ultimate secret behind clear and flawless skin. With double-cleansing, you will notice that your skin is more primed and hydrated.
