Everything You Need to Know About Double Cleansing

I used to be the girl who’d get home from happy hour, run a makeup wipe over my face and call it a night. I thought my makeup was 100% gone because that’s what the commercials told me, duh (and yes, I’m looking at you, Jennifer Gardner).

Luckily, thanks to my newfound love of skincare and obsession with reading all of the blogs, I finally learned about the magic of double cleansing. I haven’t looked back since.

Double cleansing — what is it?

We can thank the world of K-beauty for this game-changing method. Just like the name implies, double cleansing is — yep, you guessed it: the process of washing your face twice. First with an oil-based cleanser to help lift makeup, excess oil and dead skin from the skin’s surface. And next with a gel or water-based cleanser to wash all the nasty stuff away. Thoroughly cleansed skin allows your products to absorb better, so it’s the perfect method to add to your evening routine.

If you have oily, acne-prone skin and are a bit scared to rub oil over your face, just remember that while water repels oil, oil attracts oil (thank you, science). So oil-based cleansers can actually help your skin stay balanced, because they aren’t stripping it and forcing it to produce excess oil to compensate.
