But double cleansing has been a long-standing skincare step.
Double cleansing is just what it sounds like—cleansing your face twice.
Clean your face with an oil-based cleanser and follow it with a water-based cleanser.
It helps remove makeup, excess sebum, sunscreen, and moisturizer.
It helps remove dirt, pollutants, and debris.
Micellar water is a water-based cleanser, but it helps remove both oil- and water-soluble ingredients.
Use micellar water as the first step in double cleansing, but always wash it off with a cleanser.
Double cleanse if you wear makeup daily, have large pores and oily skin, and often head outside. Skip it if you have dry or sensitive skin.
