Double Cleansing…the secret to better skin!

OK, so sometimes we don’t even have the energy to clean our face with a wipe, so the idea of double-cleansing probably seems like a little OTT for a beauty routine, but a couple of extra minutes could make the world of difference to your skin.

Double Cleansing is not new it’s been around for centuries, primarily in Japan, here’s a quick guide to help you give your skin the spa effect from the comfort of your own home.

Cleanse 1

The first cleanse is all about clearing all that make up/sunscreen, pollution off of the surface of the skin. It’s best to use an oil, cream or makeup-removing cleanser to gently but thoroughly dissolve what’s on the top layer. When left on the skin even in tiny amounts, impurities can lead to premature signs of ageing, wrinkles, and dullness.

Cleanse 2

The second cleanse is all about deep cleansing using a gentle soapy cleanser that takes care of all the leftover impurities, and cleans pores thoroughly. Harsh, soapy cleansers are drying and may take away the moisturising benefits that you reaped in step one, so make sure you use one that suits your skin type. Splash cold water on the face to close pores and pat the skin dry.


Let’s not forget that clean skin is better able to absorb serums and moisturisers, making your skincare routine all around more-effective.
