The Dirt on Double Cleansing and Why You Should Try it

Buying your first skincare product is pretty much a rite of passage, and for most of us, that product was a facial cleanser.


Cleanser is the foundation of any good skincare routine and it’s exactly why we’re excited to tell you about a new, deeper way to cleanse using your favorite wipes and facial cleanser.


It’s our personal take on the new double cleansing trend, inspired by Skincare Expert, Dr. Debra Luftman. She says this type of cleanse is deeper and can help prevent skin from getting sensitive in the hot summer months. Here is how you can do it:


1. First, remove makeup and impurities by wiping your face with the facial cleansing wipes. Be careful to not pull your skin too much or rub too hard.
2. Wash with your go-to Simple Skincare cleanser and pat dry.
3. Finish with an oil-free moisturizer, like the Simple Skincare Protecting Light Moisturizer with SPF 15.

The Simple Skincare Double Cleanse is a great way to prevent your skin from showing the effects of seasonal change. According to Dr. Luftman, these changes can result in duller-looking skin or increased sensitivity and irritation.


Another reason to follow this technique? Pollutants and harsh chemicals in the air can also make skin sensitive and it’s important to wash them away.


A daily cleanse is great because it can help balance out your skin and remove makeup but the double cleanse goes one-step above. Try this on days when you’re looking for deeper cleanse. Remember to consult with your dermatologist before trying any new products or routines, especially if your skin is sensitive.


Happy Skincare!
