Everything You Need to Know About Double Cleansing

B.O.M Voyage Cleansing Balm & Drift Away Cleanser - Wander Beauty Skin Care Products

On the quest for healthy, radiant skin? If you haven't already tried double cleansing, the time is now! This simple method involves cleansing your face twice – with two separate products. Why, you ask? Let's find out!


What is double cleansing?

Double cleansing is a two-step face cleansing process that involves washing your face twice with two separate cleansers: an oil-based cleanser first, followed immediately by a water-based cleanser. This allows you to clean your skin at different levels.

The first step – using an oil-based cleanser or balm – removes residue makeup, SPF, pollution, sweat, and sebum from your face. This step is like washing the day off your face. The second step – using a gentle water-based cleanser, milk, or gel – allows you to deeply cleanse your skin of toxins, clogged pores, and dead skin cells while delivering nutrients and hydration to your skin.


The benefits of double cleansing

Going to bed with makeup residue, deeply embedded impurities, and dead skin cells still on your face is likely to lead to early signs of aging, irritation, and inflammation. Double cleansing provides a deep clean to help you fight skin discomfort, pigmentation, and breakouts.

Oil-based cleansers are highly efficient at removing oil-based impurities such as sebum, sunscreen, and makeup, while water-based cleansers work best at removing water-based impurities, including sweat, airborne pollution, and dirt. Combining both an oil-based cleanser and a water-based cleanser in your evening routine helps you cleanse your skin more deeply and effectively than a single cleanse would ever allow. The combination of these two specific products also means that you won't strip or irritate your skin, as you might if you simply used the same cleanser (with the same effect) twice. This means cleaner, healthier, and more radiant skin.

And what happens when your skin is clean? It's able to fully absorb your other skincare products, making them more effective too!


When should you double cleanse?

Not everyone needs to double cleanse, and those who do may not need to double cleanse every day, so it's important to know when to implement a double cleanse routine to optimize the health and appearance of your skin. Double cleansing is most helpful to those who wear full-coverage makeup, people living in the city who are exposed to environmental toxins and pollution, and anyone with acne-prone skin.

We recommend double cleansing at night to remove every trace of grime, build-up, and makeup and sunscreen your skin may have accumulated throughout the day. This will prime your skin to absorb any serums or overnight treatments and allow them to work their magic while you rest. The morning after double cleansing, a single wash with a gentle water-based cleanser will refresh and prepare your skin for the day ahead – followed of course by an SPF like Pack Up & Glow Priming Mineral SPF 40 and a hydrating moisturizer.<product>1</product>

A note on over-cleansing: While consistency is the key to seeing improvement in your skin's appearance, you need to observe how your skin responds to any new skincare practice and adjust your routine accordingly. If, for instance, you're spending the day relaxing at home with no need for makeup or SPF, a single cleanse – morning and evening – will be perfectly sufficient. We also recommend opting for sulfate- and paraben-free cleansers to avoid stripping the skin of natural oils and causing any irritation.

What are the best products for double cleansing?

The products you use when double cleansing are of utmost importance – first, you need to select one oil-based cleanser, such as a cleansing oil or balm, and one water-based cleanser, such as gel or milk. Second, you must avoid harsh cleansers as this will likely lead to dryness, redness, and irritation.

For these reasons, we recommend starting with a gentle but effective balm such as B.O.M. Voyage Cleansing Balm – a tri-phase formula that goes from a comforting balm to a luxurious oil to gentle milk – in one single step. Formulated with evening primrose oil, jojoba seed oil, and pear fruit extract, B.O.M. Voyage helps balance and nourish all skin types.

Next, choose a reviving gel-to-foam formula such as Drift Away Cleanser. Wash away impurities with this 5-in-1 multitasking cleanser. A luxuriously soft lather nourishes, hydrates, and balances the skin with help from mineral-rich seawater, free-radical-fighting kelp, and detoxifying guava fruit extract. Customer studies found that skin was left cleaner, brighter, and more radiant with every wash.

To apply, place a large drop of product on clean hands, then gently massage the product into the skin using small circular motions for one minute. Rinse with lukewarm water, then repeat with your second cleanser. Gently pat your skin dry with a clean face towel and follow your skincare routine as normal, making sure to moisturize to replace any lost hydration.<product>2,3</product>
