After a long and exhausting day, the only thing we want to do when we get home is to fall face first into bed. In an ideal world, you can get away with doing so without any repercussions. In reality, going to bed without washing your face will lead to breakouts, premature wrinkling, hyperpigmentation, and other problems.
But with all the dirt, pollution, oil, and other gross stuff that accumulate on the surface of the skin throughout the day, simply removing your makeup won’t cut it.
Here’s where double cleansing comes in. It’s the method of using an oil cleanser or micellar water to remove your makeup and following it up with a gentle facial wash. It’s really as simple as that, but you’ll be surprised how beneficial that extra thirty seconds to your routine is. Aside from ensuring that all the dirt is washed off, double cleansing also preps your skin for better absorption of the rest of the products in your skincare routine.
