1. What is double-cleansing?

This method was first introduced in Japan and South Korea before it was popularized around the world. It consists of using two different types of cleansers during your cleansing step. So, the first step is to use either a cleansing balm, cleansing cloth, or oil-based cleanser. Some even opt to use just oil, such as olive or coconut oil. After you’ve washed it off, use a regular gel, lotion, cream or powder cleanser that’s suitable for your skin type.
