Double cleansing is increasingly becoming a staple of many people’s skincare regimes. It’s gone from a fairly niche step to a popular technique for ensuring the skin is completely cleansed and better prepared for the active ingredients of other skincare steps. The main benefit of double cleansing is that it is thought to remove all traces of makeup, dirt, grime, external aggressors and daily pollution. This extra step in a skincare regime can help the skin absorb more potent, active ingredients – making these more effective. The first cleanse simply removes products from the skin, whilst the second one actually works on cleaning and cleansing the skin.
