How to Double Cleanse Your Face for Glowing Skin: A step-by-step guide.

Cleansing is often the most underestimated step in a skincare routine. Many people think that going to bed with their makeup on isn't a big deal, or that rinsing their face with water is enough.

Many people aren't aware of the different types of cleansers available, and which one is right for their skin type.

However, cleansing is essential for maintaining healthy, radiant skin!

If you are serious about achieving beautiful skin, cleansing is a must-do step in your skincare routine. By choosing the right cleanser for your skin type and cleansing regularly, you can help keep your skin clear, hydrated, and protected.

Here's why it's so vital:

Deep Cleansing: Cleansing eliminates dirt, excess oil, and pollutants that clog pores, leading to breakouts. This leaves your skin looking refreshed and revitalized.

Optimized Product Absorption: A clean canvas allows skincare products like serums and moisturizers to penetrate deeply, maximizing their effectiveness.

Anti-Aging Magic: Proper cleansing is a key player in the fight against aging. It helps thwart premature aging by eliminating free radicals and environmental toxins responsible for skin damage and the formation of fine lines.

At Aloisia Beauty, we believe that Double Cleansing is the secret to achieving a deep and thorough cleanse without stripping your skin of essential oils. A staple in Korean Beauty skincare routines, this method involves using two different cleansers: starting by using an oil-based cleanser to dissolve makeup, sunscreen, and other oil-based impurities, followed by a water-based cleanser to remove any remaining dirt and debris.

Some people may shy away from double cleansing because they have misconceptions about oil cleansers. The truth is, cleansing with a nutrient rich oil cleanser can provide provide amazing benefits like these:  

  • Like Attracts Like: Oil-based cleansers adhere to and dissolve makeup, excess sebum, and impurities without stripping your skin. Contrary to popular belief, they can benefit all skin types.
  • Balancing Act: Oil cleansers can help regulate oil production, making them suitable for various skin types. They preserve your skin's natural moisture balance.
  • Gentle Makeup Removal: Oil cleansing is highly effective in gently removing stubborn makeup, even waterproof mascara, without tugging at the delicate eye area.

Common Cleansing Mistakes to Avoid

To make the most of your cleansing routine, avoid these common mistakes:

  • Using Harsh Cleansers or Cleansing Face Wipes: Harsh cleansers can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness, premature aging, and acne concerns. Choose gentle and nourishing cleansers like those offered by Aloisia Beauty’s NOURISH & REFRESH Cleansing Duo.
  • Not Cleansing Regularly: Consistency is key! Cleansing twice a day is usually sufficient. However, if you have excessively oily or sweaty skin due to outdoor activities, consider cleansing more frequently with a gentle cleanser. Just don’t overdo it!
  • Not Washing Your Hands Before Cleansing or Using a Dirty Towel: Our hands come into contact with various surfaces throughout the day, and the last thing we want is to introduce bacteria or unwanted elements to our skin.
  • Cleansing with Hot Water: The temperature of water used for cleansing plays a significant role in maintaining the skin's balance. While hot water might seem soothing, it can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness and irritation.
  • Rubbing Your Face with a Rough Towel: Instead, pat your skin dry gently to avoid irritation and damage to the skin's surface.
