Double cleansing, is it necessary?

Updated: Sep 24, 2022

Hi Dermalovers, do you do a lot of outdoor activities? Do you wear make up all day long? If both aforementioned questions answers were yes, then it is highly recommended for you to do double cleansing every day, since washing your face with facial wash only is not enough to remove dirt on the face. Double cleansing is as simple as it sounds. It involves thoroughly washing your face with two cleansers. The only catch is that the cleansers need to be two different types to have the desired effect. The first is usually an oil-based cleanser (like cleansing oil), milk-based cleanser (like milk cleanser) or water-based cleanser (like micellar water). This first stage is aimed to bind the dirt and also the make-up, whereas the second one is normally done by washing the face using facial wash and rinsed with water.

Why is cleansing your face become so important? After the whole day activity, our face possibly has been exposed to dust, dirt and air pollution and it may clog the pores which potentially causes acne. Type of make-up tools like foundation and cushion that are used on a daily basis also potentially clog the pores and hard to cleanse with general face cleanser. Using of oil-based cleanser such as cleansing balm or cleansing oil may bind the waterproof make-ups as well. Therefore, it is highly recommended to use the proper products that suit to the type of skin in order to get the maximum result. Why? Because a clean and healthy skin allows the skin care to work properly.

Is it okay to cleanse the face more frequently? Cleansing the face 2-3 times a day is recommended indeed, once in the morning, another one in the afternoon and then last one before going to bed. Cleansing the face too often may also make your skin too dry and tend to increase the oil production on the skin. Lastly, cleansing the face too often may damage the skin barrier or even worse, causing the skin irritation.

Premium Dermalove Batam offers a milk cleanser that fits to all skin types – it fits to use prior the face cleansing. Pour the milk cleanser to the palm, apply to the face, rub it gently so the dirt and make-ups are removed and then wipe it with clean cotton. Afterwards, wash the face with the soap and rinse it with water. It is recommended to choose the suitable facial wash in order to get the best result. At Premium Dermalove, there are 3 available types of facial wash, starting from the normal skin type, normal-oily skin type and oily skin type. After cleansing the face, don’t forget to apply the toner, serum, moisturizer and sunscreen to have a healthy skin.
