Double cleansing is a simple and effective technique that has been gaining traction in recent years. It involves using two cleansers, one oil-based and one water-based, to thoroughly cleanse the skin. By doing this, you can remove all traces of makeup, dirt, and excess oil from your skin without stripping it of its natural oils.

I tried double cleansing for myself to see if it would improve the appearance of my skin. To my delight, I noticed that after just a few days of double cleansing, my skin felt softer and smoother than ever before. My pores were less visible and I had a more even complexion. This convinced me to keep up with the routine and now I'm reaping the benefits!


The Benefits of Double Cleansing 

Double cleansing helps to remove all traces of makeup, dirt, pollutants, and other impurities from the surface of your skin. By doing so, you are allowing your pores to open up and receive whatever products you apply afterwards more easily.

This method also helps to prevent breakouts because it ensures that any bacteria on the surface of your skin is eliminated before you go to bed. Additionally, double cleansing allows for better absorption of moisturizers or serums so that these products can penetrate deeper into the layers of the skin.


How To Double Cleanse at Night 

Step 1 - Start with an Oil or Balm Based Cleanser

Begin by using an oil-based cleanser such as our Breakdown Oil Cleanser on dry skin. Massage it into the face gently for about 30 seconds then rinse with warm water to remove any excess product.

This step will help dissolve makeup and sebum (skin's natural oils) from your face while removing impurities from deep within your pores.  

Step 2 - Follow Up With Your Favorite Cleanser

After rinsing away the first cleanser, it’s time to use your favorite cleanser (foaming or cream-based). We suggest our customer favorite, The New Romantic Cleansing Stick. Apply it directly onto dampened skin and massage in circular motions for about one minute before rinsing with lukewarm water.

This step will help remove any remaining residue that was left behind by the first cleaner while ensuring that the skin is fully cleansed without over-drying it out!         

Step 3 - Finish With A Toner

Finally, finish off with a toner to balance out pH levels in the skin as well as provide extra hydration if needed. We recommend our Rose Toner

Apply toner directly onto the cotton pad and swipe across the entire face in upward motions avoiding the eye area completely as this may cause irritation. Allow toner to sit on the face for a few minutes before patting dry with a clean towel or cloth. Also add night moisturizer, eye cream and retinol if using. Our A-Team Barrier Repairing Night Cream is a skin-regenerating night cream featuring potent retinol and deeply hydrating ceramides for radical skin transformation. The Lavender Coffee Eye Cream perfectly balances hydration, soothing, and diminishes the look of dark circles, fine lines, and wrinkles.

If you are looking for an effective way to improve the appearance of your skin, double cleansing is definitely worth a try. Not only will it help make your skin look brighter and more radiant, but it can also help reduce breakouts and other skin conditions.
