Double Cleanse: A Guide to Clear, Radiant Skin!

Good skin starts with clean skin. Properly washing your face first thing in the morning and before going to bed ensures a healthy habit and hygienic, happy skin. A quick wash to remove all the sebum accumulation, the day’s toxins, your makeup & dust before hitting the bed is a golden rule of having a clean face. A face that’s free of acne, blackheads, and other imperfections. And washing your face with any regular face wash just won't work. This is where the Double Cleansing method comes into play.

What is the double cleansing method?
Double cleansing is an effortless method of cleaning your face twice. First with the help of an oil-based cleanser and then following up with a water-based gentle cleanser.

Oil-based cleansing is recommended to break down the harsh makeup, chemical sunscreen, pollution, and the day’s negativities for flawless skin. It helps in retaining the moisture of the skin and keeps it hydrated.

A water-based cleanser helps remove deep-seated impurities from the pores and all the leftover residue on the face. This ensures nothing is left on the skin and helps maintain balanced PH levels.

What are the benefits of the double cleansing method?
- Helps in keeping your skin clean from the deepest pores
- Removes all impurities from the face
- Help in easy absorption of serums or oils
- Maintains the PH balance of the skin
- Rejuvenates & hydrates dull skin
- Repairs skin barrier and reduces skin inflammation

How to do double cleansing?
Take an adequate amount of oil-based cleanser on a cotton pad and wipe your face to remove makeup & sunscreen until it emulsifies. Now clean with a towel and wash your face with the water-based cleanser to deep cleanse the skin.

What are the tips for the double cleansing method?
● Use lukewarm water while washing your face.
● Always be gentle, whether with your products or the technique you use.
● Do not overwash; for instance, if the method dries out your face, avoid double cleansing twice a day.
● Use cleansers free from parabens, sulphates, artificial fragrances etc., as these products strip away natural oils.
● Do not exfoliate your skin daily, as it will only do more harm than good.

How often should I double cleanse?
Your skincare depends on the type of skin you have and the routine you follow. Many people ask, ‘Should you double cleanse twice a day?’ & according to Ayurveda, double cleansing twice a day is more than enough for those with oily skin or combination skin. Whereas for people with dry skin type, double cleansing once a day is sufficient. Just make sure you do not overwash your face which may trigger dry skin issues, acne, or irritation.

SoulTree’s Advanced Advanced Kumkumadi Pore-Refining Cleansing Oil is formulated for dry skin types, acting as a hydrating cleanser without leaving a greasy residue. People with oily skin should refrain from using the 1st step of the double cleanse method involving the Advanced Advanced Kumkumadi Pore-Refining Cleansing Oil.
