Do you know what Double Cleansing is? It consists of deeply cleansing the pores in two steps, removing all products and impurities from the skin. 

The idea is that, in addition to a perfectly clean face, this routine will help the skin absorb and therefore make the next skincare products more effective. The result? Healthy, smooth, radiant skin.

Double Cleansing was born in Asia and consists of first melting away makeup, sunscreen, and all the dirt from the skin, and then deeply removing all the impurities in the pores. This routine is recommended for night skincare and for that, you’ll need just two products: a cleansing oil (or make-up removing balm) and a facial cleanser (or soap, gel) for your skin type.

First apply the cleansing oil to the skin and massage the face with your fingertips until all products are effectively melted away. To remove the oil from the skin, you can use a dry face towel or warm water, cotton pads, or even emulsify the skin with water. Then cleanse the skin with a facial soap with nourishing actives that restore the skin barrier. After that, just carry on with your routine as usual, either by applying moisturizing products or actives for specific treatments.

Double Cleansing is suitable for all skin types (even the oily or sensitive ones), just use the right products for your skin type.
