KOREAN DOUBLE CLEANSE
New trends come and go but how does one know if it’s worth a try? Double Cleansing was one such trend that emerged since the buzz word #KBeauty started taking the Indian skincare market by storm. So, is it really something you must look into? Well, we are here to break it all down for you.
WHAT’S CLEANSING AND WHO SHOULD INCORPORATE IT INTO THEIR ROUTINE?
You skin goes through a lot throughout the day and if not cleansed properly dirt and pollution can accumulate at the surface of your skin potentially contributing to breakouts, dehydration and even ageing. Cleansers are essentially the foundation to your skincare routine. P.S. A quick swipe using your makeup remover wipe or splashing your face with some water in the shower won’t cut it.
Regular cleansing is crucial to the health and appearance of skin to maintain proper hydration and moisture levels while also clearing any pore blockage. Cleansing also helps maintain healthy pH levels which in turn enables healthy water and skin care product retention. Hence, no matter your skin type- you need to incorporate a cleanser into your routine.
WHAT IS DOUBLE CLEANSING?
As the name of the technique implies, double cleansing involves washing your face with two different cleansers. Double cleansing is essentially one of the most effective way to remove impurities that can cause acne and premature aging. Basically, this routine is intended to help clean the skin more thoroughly. The first cleanser would ideally be an oil-based cleanser that will dissolve makeup, sunscreen, and other heavy products. This step will be followed by a water-based cleanser that gets rid of anything that’s left over. At the end it ensures that your face is squeaky clean and there is no trace of pollution or any environmental factors in turn helping the serums, moisturisers, and other products work well on your skin as they are able to get into your skin more easily.
SHOULD YOU BE DOUBLE CLEANSING?
It may seem like an extra step that needs to be added to your skincare routine. But, if you’re someone who falls under the below two categories, you might want to give double cleansing a shot:
Category 1: If you wear heavy or transfer-resistant makeup.
Category 2: If you have very oily skin and are finding that your regular cleanser isn’t doing justice.
