the benefits of double cleansing and why you should be doing it
Posted May 2, 2021
At Kosmea, we always recommend double cleansing to our customers
Double cleansing is simply cleansing twice in a row.
Do I need to double cleanse?
If you wear makeup during the day, this an important step in a quality night time skincare routine.
Throughout the day your skin is exposed to many different environmental elements such as air pollution and the dirt and grime transferred from your hands when touching your face. Your skin may need that extra bit of cleansing to help it look its best.
Why you should double cleanse
- The first cleanse is required to remove any makeup, sunscreens, sweat and dirt from the skin on the face and neck
- The second cleanse is to give skin a deeper clean and make sure all traces of anything else on your face are removed.
Benefits of the second cleanse
The second cleanse helps the products you use after cleansing such as toners and moisturisers, to work more effectively without having to penetrate other products remaining on the surface of the skin.
If you don’t double cleanse, you may be circulating grime and dirt around the face and neck when applying an oil, serum, or moisturiser. This can result in blocked pores and breakouts.
“The first cleanse is cleaning product from the skin, whereas the second cleanse is cleaning the skin itself.”
We recommend cleansing with either our Purifying Cream Cleanser, or Clarifying Facial Wash twice to deeply clean your skin. This will prepare skin for application of our Certified Organic Rosehip Oil so that your skin can repair overnight.
We recommend the following cleansers:
And remember to combine this with Kosmea’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil
Rosehip Oil helps many skin conditions such as dry and sensitive skin, eczema prone skin and dermatitis. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as scars.
