It is extremely important to remove makeup, dirt, and pollutants that have accumulated on your skin during the day, before heading to bed," Shari Marchbein, a dermatologist in New York City, tells Allure. "Sleeping with makeup on or forgetting to rinse your face before bed is a big no-no as it can cause major acne breakouts including painful cysts."
Double cleansing then, is theoretically, twice as nice. "I recommend a double-cleansing ritual to my patients to first lift dirt and grime and then to wash them away," Dendy Engelman, a New York City-based dermatologist, tells Allure.
🍒How Do You Double Cleanse?
1st Way: The way we prefer is to double cleanse with an oil based cleanser. Massage cleanser gently into your skin, then use your Clarisonic or a warm wash cloth to cleanse and wipe off for the first time. For the second time massage the oil based cleanser into your skin, which reaches deeper into the pores to loosen hardened sebum. Then warm wash cloth off followed by toner, serum, moisturizer and or face oil.
2nd Way: Following the same steps as in the 1st way, use a cream oil based cleanser, then a water based cleanser.
