Double Cleansing 101: A Quick Guide

Everything You Need to Know About Double Cleansing


It's as easy as it sounds to double cleanse. It entails using two different cleansers on your face. The only exception is that the cleansers must be of two distinct kinds in order to get the intended result. Typically, the first is an oil-based cleanser. After that, there's a water-based cleanser. Makeup, sunscreen, sebum, and pollution are all oil-based pollutants that an oil-based cleanser is meant to eliminate. The second water-based cleaner can truly work its way into the skin, eliminating dirt and oil. Double cleansing can rejuvenate dull skin and allow other skincare products to penetrate more effectively, in addition to providing a more thorough wash. Deciding on your double-cleansing dream squad may be difficult with so many options, especially if you don't know what ingredients to look for or which cleanser is ideal for your skin type. We recommend the Man:yo Factory Pure Cleansing Oil and foam-based cleanser that not only get rid of makeup and impurities but also moisturize and hydrate your skin.

The History of Double Cleansing

The advantages of Japanese double cleansing are well-known among beauty lovers. This skincare practice dates back to the 14th century in Asia, and it entails applying a cleaning oil first, then a face cleanser. Cleaning oils were the only way to get rid of the white paint-like foundation that ladies wore in Japan and Korea. After that, a foamy cleaner was used to eliminate any remaining oil.

Hundreds of years ago, ordinary Japanese ladies aspired to have pristine white skin, inspired by the delicate beauty of geishas. Geisha rubbed moisturizing camellia oil into their skin and washed it away, followed by a foamy cleanser, to remove their heavy makeup, and the technique took on. Double cleaning completely cleans your skin, making it seem brighter and more radiant, with minimal irritation, pimples, and dryness.

The Importance of Double Cleansing

There are several advantages to double cleaning. It's an easy washing method that's essential for healthy skin. The biggest advantage is that double cleansing your face removes almost all pollutants, ensuring that your skin stays healthy and clear of acne outbreaks. It's also crucial to remember that adopting the Korean double-cleansing approach will give your skin a clean canvas, allowing any cosmetics or skincare products you apply to your skin to absorb much more efficiently. You may follow the double-cleansing routine on your skin 1-2 times each day if you want to.

The first cleanser will remove any makeup, dirt, and excess oils from the day, as well as clean your skin, which is one of the benefits of double cleansing. Depending on your skin type or condition, the second cleanser should include ingredients to hydrate, smooth, exfoliate, and treat acne. Double washing can also improve the performance of your other skincare products. Double cleansing may help your other products penetrate better. Your pores are now clear and ready to absorb face creams and moisturizers.

Double cleansing is a two-step method that only takes a few minutes to complete; it is not a one-size-fits-all approach to skincare. Choosing the proper double-cleansing oil is crucial in ensuring you get the most out of it. You have to consider different skin types and your unique skin issues before you dive into the world of double cleansing. When applied to your skin, our Man:yo Factory Pure Cleansing Oil melts into a pleasant, silky oil. It was created to remove makeup, sunscreen, and any other pollutants off your skin without removing it from its natural oils, leaving it smooth, supple, and moisturized. It comprises 14 different types of vegetable oils. It contains lipophilic and hydrophilic properties that help to remove blackheads, sebum, and makeup. It cleanses and nourishes the skin at the same time.

How to Double Cleanse

Step 1:

To begin, remove makeup and oil buildup with an oil-based cleanser. Makeup, sebum, and sunscreen can only be broken down with oil, so use an oil-based cleanser to get rid of them. Ours is gentle and leaves no trace on the skin, leaving it smooth and nourished. If you wish to use an oil-based cleanser, wait until your skin is completely dry before applying it. Keep in mind that these products don't require lathering. After massaging the oil-based cleanser into your skin, add a few drops of water to the mixture before continuing to massage your skin. The mixture will then turn milky, and you may use a soft washcloth to wipe the cleanser from your skin.

Step 2:

Step two includes a good old-fashioned water-based cleanser (like our Cleansing Soda Foam) after the first step has removed any makeup and pollutants. After using an oil-based cleanser and rinsing it off, you may go on to a water-based cleanser, which is necessary if you want to eliminate any residual oil from your skin. These cleaners come in both non-foaming and foaming varieties. You may consider a foamy cleanser to be more alkaline than non-foaming cleansers if you choose one.

Impurities that dissolve in water, such as oil/sweat and pollutants, are lathered away using a water/foam-based cleanser. Our mild formulations get the job done without drying your skin and make your skin ready for other skincare products. Ma:nyo Factory's Pure & Deep Cleansing Foam is another product worth looking into. Because this product is so gentle, it may be used by anybody with sensitive skin. You should be able to prevent acne outbreaks by unclogging your skin's pores.

Water-based cleansers are essentially similar to oil-based cleansers, with the exception that they may remove polar molecules such as dust and sweat. Because all non-polar molecules have been eliminated from your skin, you should be able to remove any residual pollutants using a water-based cleanser. After using a water-based cleanser, your main objective should be for your skin to feel smooth and moisturized. The procedure for applying a water-based cleanser to your face varies depending on the cleanser. If you're using a foamy cleanser, make sure you moisten your face first. The skin should next be massaged lightly. If you're using a non-foaming cleanser, apply it to your face with a gentle brush.
