What is Double Cleansing?

August 16, 2022

Double cleansing is a technique that includes an extra step in your typical skincare routine & comes packed with benefits. While your skin will feel and look cleaner, you’ll also be setting up the skin barrier for success by preventing breakouts and allowing for better product efficacy.

Step 1

You’ll begin your double-cleanse routine in the evening with a cleanser to melt away any makeup, including mascara & sunscreen without disrupting your skin’s natural oils. Our Milky Lotion Cleanser is a soothing cleanser that works to effectively and gently remove makeup & impurities, without causing irritation or dryness.

Step 2

Next, you’ll use a water-based cleanser to deeply cleanse any impurities or excess dirt. This could be your Lytic Gel Cleanser or Gentle Foaming CleanserAfter double cleansing, you’ll follow up with your toner, serum & moisturizer. Double cleansing is overflowing with skincare benefits, no matter the season.

Breakout Prevention

By double cleansing the skin at the end of the day, you’re washing away all of the pollutants, sweat and impurities from building up and triggering any irritation and breakouts. This is especially important for those of us who wear daily makeup, work-out or spend a lot of time outdoors or live in a densely populated city.

Product Efficiency

Double cleansing during your nighttime routine can also support how well your follow-up products can penetrate the skin. Your moisturizers & serums will be more efficient in hydrating and plumping because of how clean your skin will be.

Supporting Your Skin Barrier

Last and most certainly not least – nurturing your skin barrier. By cleansing away any excess sebum – along with any pollutants, dirt or makeup – double cleansing also supports your skin barrier by keeping it clean and balanced.  No matter the time of year or lifestyle, the double cleansing method is a perfect way to hit refresh at the end of your day, without over drying or over stripping the skin.
