Double Cleansing

Whether you're always on-the-go or running errands around the house, double cleansing is a must-do for gently, but effectively cleansing your face to prevent breakouts and nourish skin.

Double cleansing consists of two steps:
Step 1: Oil-based cleanser
Step 2: Water-based cleanser

Here's all you need to know about double cleansing!


The first step in double-cleansing is oil-based cleansing. The purpose of this step is to deeply cleanse without damaging the skin.

Oil-based cleansers are able melt away oily particles and lift away all those impurities that have built up during the day which includes make-up, sunscreen, sebum and more. One misconception is that if you don't go out or use make-up during the day, you don't need an oil-cleanser, however oil can naturally build up on your face throughout the day so make sure to not skip this step!

Our Solid Cleansing Oil or Milk & Peel Balm are perfect for this step. The secret is, you have to use the balm on dry skin and gently rub in circular motions all over in order to melt impurities on your face. Once you add water, the balm turns into a milky, nourishing solution that rinses all the dirt and oils away.

Oil-based cleansing is suitable for all skin types – dry, combination, and even oily because it's followed by water-based cleansing! 



After using your oil-based cleanser, it's time for your water-based one! 

It completes the cleansing process by eliminating any other impurities or oily residue on the skin and helps to prevent the appearance of spots, redness or blackheads. 

When it comes to water-based cleansing, you can use a micellar water or a soap-based cleanser, depending on which you prefer. Check out our Double Mousse cleansing foam for a soothing daily cleanser!



The first step to great skin is a good cleanser! When you don't effectively clean your skin, dirt, make-up, and other impurities build up in your pores causing imperfections and acne. 

Other ways you can combat acne is to make sure your pillowcase is changed regularly because bacteria can build up which can rub off onto your skin. Opt for silkier pillowcases can also be more gently on your skin.

Also, make sure to also exfoliate two to three times regularly. Not only can you refine your skin texture but using ingredients such as charcoal can detoxify your pores for a cleaner feel!

What you need to know about lotions and toners!


At one point, toners were looked down upon by dermatologists for being too astringent and incredibly drying. They used to contain high concentration of alcohol to remove oil from the skin which was more detrimental to skin than beneficial. Long gone are the days when toners would dry and irritate our faces.

These days, most toners are more hydrating, alcohol-free and focus on more skin concerns than just treating acne and oily skin. Our lotions/toners main benefit is that it gives the skin a shot of hydration and dramatically enhances the moisturizing benefits of the products applied afterwards.

To help you understand how it works, imagine a sponge: if it's already moist, it will soak up more water than a dry sponge. A lotion/toner moistens the skin, so that – just like a sponge moistened with water – it will better absorb the products that follow. A lotion is different from a serum. It consists mainly of active water and works to moisturize the skin deep down while preparing it for further products. A serum has a much richer texture. Formulated with a high concentration of actives, it usually addresses a specific skin concern (such as redness, wrinkles, etc.) and provides targeted, powerful action.
