Double Cleansing: the korean skincare ritual!

Double cleansing is one of the most precious secrets of Korean women for perfect skin. Every evening, two essential steps must be performed, one after the other, so that skin is perfectly purified:

1- Oil-based cleansing
2- Water-based cleansing

All you need to know about Korean double cleansing!


The first step in the Korean double-cleansing ritual is oil-based cleansing. The purpose of this step is to deeply cleanse without damaging the skin.

Oil-based cleansers have a secret weapon: their ability to melt away oily particles and lift away all those impurities that have built up during the day.   

Oil-based cleansing is suitable for all skin types ‚Äď dry, combination, and even oily‚Ķ Because it's followed by water-based cleansing!¬†



After using your oil-based cleanser, it's time for your water-based one! 

Korean women know that if you want perfectly clean skin, this second step is fundamental. 

It completes the cleansing process by eliminating any other impurities or oily residue on the skin and helps to prevent the appearance of spots, redness or blackheads. 

When it comes to water-based cleansing, you can use a micellar water or a soap-based cleanser, depending on which you prefer. 



Korean women place great importance on preparing the skin. Pure, perfectly cleansed skin is more receptive to the benefits of the following steps in your beauty ritual (lotion, day or night cream, makeup, etc.). 

The Korean evening beauty routine is extremely disciplined! There can be no impurities on pillowcases! Ensuring your skin is perfectly cleansed will help you wake up to skin that feels fresh and rested.

That's why Korean women may also use an accessory to make double cleansing even easier and enhance its effects: konjac sponges to stimulate microcirculation and gently exfoliate, a cleansing brush with bristles that contain purifying charcoal, and various other brushes.

These accessories are both effective and enjoyable to use, making your evening cleansing routine a moment of pure relaxation!
