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!
Step one: Oil-based 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 – dry, combination, and even oily… Because it's followed by water-based cleansing!
Step two: 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.
Step three: Double cleansing ritual: the first step to perfect skin
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!
The first step to great skin is a good cleanser! When you don't effectively clean your skin, dirt, make-up, and other impurities build up in your pores causing imperfections and acne.
Other ways you can combat acne is to make sure your pillowcase is changed regularly because bacteria can build up which can rub off onto your skin. Opt for silkier pillowcases which can also be more gentle on your skin.
Also, make sure to exfoliate two to three times a week. Not only can you refine your skin texture but using ingredients such as charcoal can detoxify your pores for a cleaner feel!
