What is Double Cleansing?

As you probably guessed from the name, this is a two-step cleansing process.

To begin with, you cleanse to begin the process of removing your makeup with a makeup remover. You must use a product labelled makeup remover to break the bond between your makeup and skin with this oil-based product. This includes removing long-wearing makeup, pollutants, and other impurities on top of the skin.

Next, you cleanse with a foaming cleanser. This will deeply clean your pores and remove dead skin cells and oils or impurities that can cause breakouts, redness, and inflammation.

Where Did This Concept Originate?

Have you ever noticed that Korean women have perfect skin? They are fastidious about skin care and lay claim to the double cleanse method. In fact, Korean women have been using the double cleanse method for years before it was even a trend.

In addition to the double cleanse, Korean women use sheet masks 2 to 3 times per week. However, that’s the topic of a soon-to-come blog post.

The Philosophy

I was recently walking past a department store beauty counter and heard the beauty advisor explaining skin care. Of course, she was teaching a lady the double cleanse method. Her advice was, “You wouldn’t take a shower without removing your outer layer–your clothes off first. So, why would you wash your face without first removing the outer layer–your makeup?”
