Korean skincare is the rave these days. Double cleansing is the Korean skincare method of cleansing your face for crystal clear glass skin. Wondering what is double cleansing and how to go about it? Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. Here’s our ultimate guide to double cleansing for beginners.

What Is Double Cleansing?

It is precisely as it sounds: cleansing your face twice. Generally, people use an oil-based cleanser followed by a water-based cleanser. This is a fantastic way of removing heavy makeup and impurities. Here's a simple step by step guide to double cleansing:

·       For the first step, you need to make sure that your face is thoroughly clean. Next, use your favorite oil cleanser to wash your face and make sure that your face doesn’t have any makeup.

·       Next, on damp skin, wash your face with the water-based cleanser for at least a minute taking your time to massage and allowing your face to benefit from all the ingredients of your cleanser. Many people make a cardinal skincare mistake of just washing for 10-20 seconds. Just like brushing your teeth, wash your face for at least a minute or two to remove all the impurities and makeup.

·       After you’re done, wash your face with lukewarm water, pat dry, and apply your skincare products. That's it! Your skin is thoroughly clean now. The double cleansing methodology isn't as hard as you would think.


Do not use hot water on your face; many people think hot water cleanses better, but this is a complete misconception. This can be dangerous to your skin, especially if you have sensitive or acne-prone skin. Always use lukewarm water.

What Are The Benefits Of Double Cleansing?

If done correctly, the double cleansing methodology can offer your skin a healthy dose of benefits:

·       If you’re someone that wears heavy makeup, double cleansing is the best way of thoroughly cleaning your face after a long day.

·       Double cleansing also removes the dead skin cells and brightens your skin

·       Double cleaning allows your skincare products to penetrate deeper and work more effectively.

Double Cleansing FAQ’s

Do I Need To Double Cleanse Every Day?

You don't need to double cleanse AM and PM. Double cleansing isn't always necessary. Save the double cleansing methodology for the night. Additionally, if you don't wear makeup or have dry skin, you can skip double-cleansing. Just invest in a good cleanser.

What Cleansers Should I Use For Double Cleaning?

Most people prefer an oil and water-based cleanser, but this isn't always necessary. In fact, you can even use micellar water, or you can even use the same cleanser twice. Make sure your cleanser doesn’t contain sulfates to prevent your natural oils from getting stripped.

That brings us to the end of our double cleansing methodology guide. Cleansing is the first step to gorgeous skin, and properly double cleansing can be rewarding.
