Regardless if your skin is dry, oily, sensitive or mature, you should add double cleansing to your skin care routine. California Pure Naturals’ beginner's guide to double cleansing will review what double cleansing is, how to double cleanse your face, and its benefits to your skin.
What is Double Cleansing?
Double cleansing is a Korean beauty skin care regime, also known as K-beauty, where you cleanse your face twice with two different types of cleansers to get a deeper clean. A quick wash or wipe of your face with a cotton pad is not enough to remove the daily grime that builds up on your skin. Makeup that stays on your skin overnight can leave you with a duller completion and can also cause break-outs.
Another evil for your skin is pollution. If microscopic pollution particles are not thoroughly cleansed from your skin, it may interrupt your skin’s natural regeneration process, leading to visible signs of premature aging.
How to Double Cleanse
The first step is to wipe your face with an oil-based cleanser or micellar water to remove surface makeup, dirt, pollutants and excess oils.
The second step is to use a cleanser with water to get deeper into the pores to wash away any pore-clogging debris. For a deeper clean, it is best to wash your face using an upward and outward motion because of how the follicles are arranged on your face. The reverse motion should be used when applying makeup so that you are not pushing the makeup into your pores.
At California Pure Naturals, we have three cleansers for deep-cleaning. Revitalize Cleansing Gel, which is made with orange peel and calendula flower extracts help promote collagen production for bright and renewed skin. If you have dry or sensitive skin, our Gentle Cleansing Lotion will clean and nourish your skin leaving it soft and well-moisturized. Our Dual Action Scrub is made with walnut shells and papaya fruit extract to gently scrub and polish away the rough, dull top-layers of your skin, while the pomegranate and natural enzymes boost your skin’s natural radiance.
The Benefits of Double Cleansing
The first benefit of double cleansing is that you will achieve a deeper clean. Even if you don’t wear makeup often, cleaning your skin this way at the end of the day is important to removing dirt and pollutants. If dirt and pollutants are not removed, they can cause oxidative damage to the skin which contributes to the breakdown of collagen and the development of wrinkles and sunspots.
The second benefit is that it prepares your skin for products that you apply after cleansing your face, such as a moisturizer. Clean skin allows the active ingredient to penetrate the skin better.
