What is a double facial cleansing?

In order to make our facial skin look healthy, luminous, fresh and soft, a good cleansing is essential; not only to remove makeup but also to eliminate residues, sweat traces of makeup and all that jazz.

The double cleansing routine comes from Asian beauty rituals. It consists of applying two products instead of one to carry out a proper facial cleanse.Firstly, apply a water- or oil-based cleaning product to remove makeup and impurities. Usually these products (makeup remover, balm, or micellar water) do not need rinsing. After this, you should apply a product containing soap, such as a cleansing gel, that needs to be rinsed out with water in order to complete the double cleaning routine. You can choose what works best for you, if an oil- based product or a water one.
