Double Cleansing! What is it and Does it work?
The double cleansing method has been picking up popularity with every left wondering, what is it and does it work?
The double cleansing method is a 2 step method to cleanse your face. The first step is using an oil-based cleanser such as a cleansing balm to break down makeup or dirt and oil that as accumulated on your face. The second step is to use a water-based cleanser to help cleanse deeper into the surface of your skin and pores.
Does this method work? Absolutely! You would be surprised at how little your everyday cleanser actually takes off! Using an oil-based cleanser works best at breaking down products such as foundation and sunscreen allowing your regular face wash to cleanse your skin afterward.
Can I use an Oil Based cleanser if I have sensitive or oily skin? Yes! It all depends on the brand and ingredients. If you pick one with non-comedogenic ingredients, it should be fine.
How often do I need to double cleanse? You can double cleanse just once at night and do a normal single cleanse in the morning.
Would this make my skin oily? When using an oil-based cleanser, some brands will leave behind oils however, excess oil will come off with the second cleanse. Also, these oils are meant to be moisturizing so it won't dry your skin out like what regular cleansers would usually do.
