Beauty Trends May Come And Go

Double cleansing is just what it sounds like—cleansing your face twice.

What Is It?

Clean your face with an oil-based cleanser and follow it with a water-based cleanser.

How Is It Done?

It helps remove makeup, excess sebum, sunscreen, and moisturizer.

What Does The Oil-Cleanser Do?

It helps remove dirt, pollutants, and debris.

How Does The Water-Based Cleanser Help?

Micellar water is a water-based cleanser, but it helps remove both oil- and water-soluble ingredients.

Can You Double Cleanse With Micellar Water?

Use micellar water as the first step in double cleansing, but always wash it off with a cleanser.

Don’t Leave It On The Face

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.
