Double Cleansing is more than just a current skincare trend, it’s a highly effective beauty ritual practiced for centuries in Korea and Japan. This multi-step cleansing method has since made its way States-side and we couldn’t be bigger fans. And we know, adding yet another step to your morning routine may be the last thing you think about when hitting that snooze button, but we promise it’s worth it.
At first glance, this method might seem like simply washing your face twice with the same cleanser, but the effectiveness of this cleansing method has less to do with the number of times you wash your face, and more to do with what types of cleansers you are using. To effectively target both oil-soluble and water-soluble dirt and impurities, you will need to start with an oil-based cleanser and then, you guessed it, finish off with a water-based cleanser.
We recommend starting your double cleanse with our iconic plant-based oil cleanser HY-ÖL paired with the Phytoactive tailored just for your skin type. Apply four pumps of HY-ÖL and two pumps Phytoactive to dry skin, moisten fingers, massage into skin, then rinse thoroughly. Then complete the process with our best-selling Enzyme Cleanser. Place the enzyme powder in the palm of your hand, add a little warm water and work up a gentle lather. Massage generously into the face then rinse off with plenty of water.
