On a daily basis, we get exposed to lots of dirty goods. You cleanse your face to get rid of sweat, dead skin cells, and pollution. If you apply your skincare on top of all this dirt, your products will not work as intended. So, using a cleanser is very important.
Double cleansing, what’s in it for you?
It doesn’t matter whether it’s morning or evening, your first step in your skincare routine should always be cleansing your face. Actually no, your first step should always be washing your hands. It’s pretty self-explanatory to know that rinsing your face and applying products with dirty hands is not a good idea. As mentioned before, cleansing your face helps you get rid of all the dirt you get exposed to daily, but it also helps to prevent breakouts.
For your morning routine, I recommend you try to use as little product as possible. Especially for people with sensitive, dry, or acne-prone skin. The only dirt on your face in the morning is sweat and some dead skin cells anyways. Sometimes, just a splash of water can do the job.
In the evening, it’s best to opt for double cleansing, where you cleanse your face two times. Then, your skin will be a lot dirtier because it got exposed to those recently mentioned dirty goods. With a double cleanse, you’re making sure all of that is definitely gone. You are also sure you’re applying the following products on perfectly clean skin. You can use the same cleanser twice, or you can use two different ones that each have a different purpose.
