Skincare is pure "me time" for most of us and people tend to take it pretty seriously. And double cleansing is a new addition to the skincare fan regime.

But what is double cleansing? How does it work? What products should we go for? Don’t worry we’re here to guide you in this new world of double cleansing.



As the name suggests double cleansing involves cleansing your face twice with two cleansers. it involves using a cleansing oil, balm, or micellar water first followed by a water-based cleanser.

The benefit of double cleansing is that the first cleanser will help remove makeup, SPF, dirt, sebum from the day making it clean. The second cleanser addresses a particular skin concern and cleans much deeper into the pores to remove any impurities. If you're a person who wears heavy makeup double cleansing ensures that not a single scrap of makeup is left on your face and it is squeaky clean at the end of the day. Further, it also helps serums, moisturizers, and other skincare products to penetrate well into your skin and work more efficiently.



Here is a list of formulas for different skin types:

Dry skin

People with dry skin should look for gentle cleansers that will not strip their natural oils like products that have neutral ph.

Ingredients to look for: Shea butter, jojoba, plant oils, honey, and squalene.

Oily skin

people with oily skin should look for products with anti-inflammatory ingredients.

Ingredients to look for: Vitamin E, glycolic acid, and polyhydroxy.

Combination skin

People with combination skin should look for a cleanser with a balancing effect i.e., something lightweight which would retain the moisture of the skin and hydrate it while controlling the oils.

Ingredients to look for: Ceramide.

Sensitive skin

People with sensitive skin should look for cleansers that are gentle and mild and should not contain any harsh chemicals and should be fragrance-free.
