Double Cleansing – why you should be doing it

Double Cleansing is an important step in your skincare routine, especially in the evening time. For those who think that cleansing your skin twice might be excessive, let us explain why we recommend it.  If you’ve been wearing makeup and/or SPF all day, that first cleanse will break down the products.  The second cleanse will ensure that everything is washed away properly and it will work on the skin itself, not on the products on top of it.  It helps to remove dirt, grime and oil on the skin, allowing your skin to absorb your skincare products more effectively.

Double Cleansing can be carried out by all skin types and we have a range of cleansers suitable for everyone.  It’s important to choose the right cleanser for your skin type, to ensure that it works effectively.
