As mentioned in The Routine, double cleansing is a wonderful routine for every skin type including oily, acne-prone, and sensitive skin types. The double cleanse consists of two cleansers—an oil cleanser draw out and dissolve oil-based impurities including sebum, sunscreen and makeup without stripping your face; a water-based cleanser removes water-based debris such as dirt.
But are you cleansing your skin right?
1 Minute: Start by massaging your oil cleanser evenly on to dry face using gentle, circular motions for one minute. Add a little bit of lukewarm water to emulsify the oil, and rinse away.
1 Minute: Dispense your water-based cleanser into wet palms and create a foamy lather. Massage your cleanser onto skin in circular motions for another minute and rinse with water.
= Clean Skin!
By spending a minute on each cleansing step, you’re thoroughly removing every smidge of dirt and makeup. On the other hand, spending too much time may result in the dirt being reabsorbed into your skin.
