What Is Double Cleansing?

What Is Double Cleansing?

Double cleansing is quite a recent addition to skincare regimes that many people swear by, but many of us wonder what it actually is. The answer is simple, it is just cleansing twice. So, instead of cleansing your face once with our cleansing milk or face wash, you carry out the process twice, either with the same product or preferably with a different product like our Nakin Purifying Face Toner to give skin a deeper cleanse and condition. The only thing to be careful of is to use a cleanser that is kind to your skin like our Nakin Natural Advanced Cleansing Milk, Rejuvenating Face Wash and Toner.

Double cleansing has gained immense popularity, particularly in skincare routines, due to its effectiveness in ensuring a thoroughly clean complexion. This two-step process starts with an oil-based cleanser or face wash to dissolve makeup, sunscreen, and sebum on the skin's surface. Following this, a water-based cleanser like a toner is used to further remove sweat, bacteria, and environmental pollutants. This method ensures that the skin is impeccably clean, which can help prevent breakouts and allow subsequent skincare products to penetrate deeper, enhancing their efficacy.

Why Double Cleanse

The reason behind double cleansing is that our face and neck is subject to so much dirt and grime throughout the day, from the environment and pollution, and make-up if you wear it. So, sometimes skin will benefit from double cleansing. There is a simple way to know if you should double cleanse. If you have used your cleanser and it is one of the best like our anti-ageing cleansing milk then you know it is going to do a good job of cleaning your skin, while nourishing at the same time. The simple way to know if you should double cleanse is to see if there is still grime appearing when you are taking your cleanser off with cotton wool. If you remove your cleanser with a cloth then this is harder to determine, unless it is a white cloth. In this instance you can see if there is still grime when you use our natural face toner. Our toner will remove the last traces of cleanser and detox skin deep down, however, if there is still dirt on the skin prior to toning, then double cleansing is a good idea.

Deciding to double cleanse will depend on how much make-up you use and how much dirt and grime there is on your face. It can vary day to day depending on your daily activities, and where you live. City life and living in a busy town usually means that your skin will be quite dirty, but on the other hand living in the countryside might also be a reason to double cleanse your skin. Double cleansing is important if your skin is not fully clean after just one cleanse. Having clean skin is important for helping it to look smooth, fresh and glowing.

Having such a good cleansing routine will not only benefit your skin, as many find it is a lovely ritual to relax and spend some time looking after ourselves in a calm and stress-free environment. Good skincare is about enjoyment as well as helping to keep our skin clear and fresh.

The Benefits of Double Cleansing

As long as you use a good cleansing milk that is kind to even sensitive skin then double cleansing will not harm your skin. We do not recommend double cleansing if you do not need it, however, if you do then double cleansing will benefit your skin by keeping it clear and fresh. We recommend a natural anti-ageing lotion like Nakin’s Advanced Cleansing Milk which we believe is one of the best face cleansers available. The silky soft lotion formula of a cleansing milk means that powerful plant actives can be easily incorporated into the ingredients, and they are very beneficial to skin when applied to the face. So skin is left clear, fresh, soft and hydrated. Then always follow a cleansing milk with a toner. Toners reach deep down into epidermis and dermis to remove impurities, refresh, stimulate & condition skin. Always use a good Natural Face Toner which will be kind to skin.

How to Double Cleanse

Apply our Natural Cleansing Milk all over the face and neck using fingertips or cotton wool. Take time applying the cleansing milk as massaging it into skin helps to dislodge grime. Remove the cleansing milk in the shower, or with dry or damp cotton wool, or a cloth. Then the double cleanse element comes from repeating this step. Follow the double cleanse with our Natural Face Toner which gives a final detox and condition to skin. It will now be ready for the actives applied after cleansing.

We hope that you found our feature helpful explaining what double cleansing is. Many people find it helpful to double cleanse if they wear a lot of make-up, or live in a polluted area. Double cleansing is quite simple and just involves using a cleanser twice. The only thing to be careful with is to make sure that it is a natural cleansing milk that is kind to skin. This is important to ensure that skin is still comforted after cleansing. Then follow with a natural face toner before applying active products like serums and creams afterwards.
