Should I Use a Face Wash after an Oil Cleanser?

There is a lot of different face cleansing styles around that it can be hard to know which is the right one to use for you. One of the queries that we often get asked is should a face wash be used after an oil cleanser. We feel that it is not essential if you are double cleansing with a product like our Purifying Face Toner after using our Advanced Cleansing Milk, however, if you prefer to use a facial wash after our milk then this will also be fine. Our Rejuvenating Face Wash is excellent for this as it is a high performing natural face wash with so many benefits for skin.

So, in answer to the question of whether you should use a face wash after an oil-based cleanser, the answer is that yes you can use both. Starting with the cleansing milk, the oil-based milk will dislodge grime, make-up and SPF. Then the face wash used afterwards will give a refreshing double cleanse, cleansing thoroughly and brightening plus treating skin with the fruit extracts.

Using a face wash after an oil cleanser, which is a type of double cleansing, offers several benefits for the skin. This method ensures a thorough removal of impurities, makeup, and excess sebum that might not be completely eliminated by an oil cleanser alone. The face wash, usually a water-based cleanser, helps to cleanse the skin more deeply, reaching into the pores and clearing out any residual dirt or oil left by the first cleanse. Additionally, double cleansing can enhance the effectiveness of subsequent skincare products, as cleaner skin can absorb nutrients more efficiently. This practice can lead to a clearer, more radiant complexion, while also helping to prevent breakouts and other skin issues.

Double cleansing has become increasingly popular in recent years, especially among those with oily or acne-prone skin. However, it can benefit all skin types, as even dry and sensitive skin can accumulate impurities throughout the day. By incorporating an oil-based cleanser and a face wash into your skincare routine, you are ensuring that your skin is free from any lingering debris that could potentially clog pores and cause skin irritation.

There are various types of face washes available, such as gel, foam, cream, and even oil-based cleansers. It is important to choose a face wash that is suitable for your skin type and concerns such as Nakin's, as it is for all skin types, including sensitive skin. 

In addition to improving the overall cleanliness of the skin, double cleansing can also provide a therapeutic and relaxing experience. Taking the time to massage the milk and then face wash onto the skin in gentle circular motions not only helps with product absorption but can also promote blood circulation and release tension in facial muscles. This can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving the skin a more youthful and radiant look.

Incorporating double cleansing into your skincare routine is simple. Begin by using an oil-based cleanser like our Advanced Cleansing Milk to remove makeup, sunscreen, and any excess dirt or oil from the face. Then follow up with a water-based cleanser to thoroughly cleanse and refresh the skin. This two-step process can be done in the morning and evening, or as needed. 

It is important to note that while double cleansing can provide numerous benefits for the skin, it is crucial to use gentle products like ours and avoid over-cleansing. Harsh cleansers can strip the skin of its natural oils and disrupt its pH balance, leading to dryness, irritation, and even breakouts. Additionally, over-cleansing can compromise the skin's protective barrier and make it more susceptible to environmental damage. Therefore, it is important to choose products that are suitable for your skin type and concerns, and always follow up with a hydrating treatment and/ or moisturiser after cleansing to restore balance and nourishment to the skin.
