What is double facial cleansing?

Here’s everything you need to know about double facial cleansing.

Double facial cleansing is a method of facial cleansing where 2 products are used, one oil-based cleanser (milk, oil or butter) and another water-based cleanser (gel, soap, etc). The first one removes dirt (excess sebum, make-up, bb creams, sunscreen, pollution, etc.) and the second one removes the remains of the first one and the dirt that is soluble in water such as sweat.

This hygiene routine achieves a very deep cleansing of the skin without altering the hydrolipidic film. Remember that this two-part facial cleansing does not have to be aggressive, so people with drier and more sensitive skin can do it perfectly well. If you have combination or oily skin, don’t be afraid to use products with an oily texture! You can use them without any problem, you just have to choose the right one.

How to do a double facial cleansing? Steps in a double facial cleansing

  1. Massage the oil-based cleanser with your hands using circular movements, thus removing any waterproof make-up more easily. Start with the face, then the eye contour, eyelashes and finish with a massage on the neck and décolleté. This softens the layers of the skin where dead skin cells accumulate and helps to constantly renew the skin.
  2. To remove everything we recommend using an organic cotton muslin or bamboo muslin because it does not generate waste and respects the planet. Moisten it with warm water and sweep it over your face.
  3. Then use the water-based cleanser and rinse with cold water. This way we remove the dead cells accumulated during the day and other polluting particles. From Mediterranean Spirit we recommend you to use our face cleansing gel with exclusive Mediterranean ingredients of natural and organic origin, you will feel your skin fresh and clean for 24h. If you are one of those who use an electronic facial cleansing device, this is the step where you should use it.
  4. After finishing the double cleansing we recommend using a face toner to balance the pH of the skin and also because it has a moisturising function, helps to close the pore and leaves the skin ready to absorb a beauty treatment.

Ideally, double facial cleansing should be done both in the morning and at night. This Korean double cleansing can always be done, whether you are wearing make-up or not.
