Trend alert: double cleansing

On a daily basis, our faces are exposed to things like weather conditions, dirt, pollution, oil, makeup, and sweat. Sometimes one cleansing is not enough to remove everything that has accumulated on your skin. When done properly, double cleansing won’t leave your skin stripped of the necessary oils it needs.

Let’s break it down: If there’s any oily substance on your face—such as makeup, pollution or dirt particles—a single washing isn’t going to get your face clean. Any dirt, environmental debris or makeup left on your skin after cleansing can aggravate underlying skin conditions, trigger breakouts or make skin appear dull and tired. That’s where double cleansing comes in.

Double cleansing helps promote healthy, moisturized, and well-balanced skin. The first step in double cleansing removes makeup. The second step removes any left over makeup and helps clarify the skin surface.

Skin that has been double cleansed is best prepared for the benefits of products like moisturizers, serums, and treatments. It allows those products to soak deep into your skin for greater results and effectiveness.

If double cleansing seems like something your skin can benefit from. Follow these steps to properly double cleanse:

1. Start by thoroughly massaging a cleanser onto your face. Try Hylunia Facial Cleansing Lotion. This powerful, yet gentle, cleanser removes dirt, impurities while maintaining natural moisture levels.

2. Completely rinse the cleanser before starting your second cleanse. You can use the same cleanser for both steps, or mix it up depending on what your skin needs. We recommend Hylunia Facial Cleansing Gel for the second cleanse to clarify. This will remove any leftover impurities without removing any necessary natural oils from your skin. Your face is now able to receive any ingredient benefits from the cleanser and is ensured that your face is totally clean.

3. Next, continue onto your normal skin care regimen. This should include:

With double cleansing, skin appears healthier and brighter because it’s cleaner. Give it a couple of weeks and you’ll notice a difference.
