Learn Korean Skincare Routine: The Double-Cleansing Method

I remember my days before I was introduced to the double-cleansing method, removing makeup was the last thing I wanted to do. Not only because I was lazy ? .. but waterproof makeup had never seemed to be wiped off completely. I could still see foundation stains on cotton pads even after! till the day I watched a youtube video about the double-cleansing method and was kinda sure that I am doing it all wrong.

What is the double-cleansing method?

In short, it’s a two-step process to remove makeup and clean the skin. It starts out with an oil-based cleanser followed by a water-based cleanser. So it basically requires two different cleansing formulas to perfectly and completely remove your makeup and cleanse your face.

Step one:

The idea of starting with oil-based cleanser is that oil dissolves oily dirts like sebum, sunscreen, and waterproof makeup. Lifting oily debris first helps in opening the pores and allowing the following cleanser to really getting in.

My favorite oil-based cleanser for this mission is The BodyShop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter. I scoop out a little and massage it very gently into my dry skin with dry hands, Then I rinse my face with lukewarm water.

Step two:

Using a water-based cleanser to wash away water-based residues as dust, sweat, old skin cells and bacteria.
I opt for a foam cleanser that suits my sensitive skin Bioderma Sensibio DS+. I rub it gently into my face with circular upward motions and then rinse it off with Lukewarm water.

I repeat the double-cleansing method twice morning and night to make sure no accumulated sebum nor sweat is clogging my pores.

Many would freakout to hear the word ” Oil ” when it comes to clean their oily or acne-prone skin! In fact, oily skin types will benefit significantly from using an oil-based cleanser because it will gently remove excess sebum without stripping the face natural oils.

Overall, this process is more maintainable than I thought it would be. It is a key part of Japanese and Korean women’ skincare routine that had the most profound results in achieving healthy and radiant skin. Let’s do ourselves a favor and get this basic skincare step right!
