What is double cleansing?
Double cleansing is just as it sounds. Cleansing your skin twice. Firstly with an oil-based cleanser, (pre cleanse) then with a water based or surfactant-based cleanser.
The Dermalogica Double Cleanse is the secret to healthy, ultra clean skin. Your first cleanse removes pollutant build-up, makeup, products and oily debris. This allows your second cleanse, (your dermalogica prescribed cleanser) to penetrate for a professional level of clean.
Why do you need to double cleanse?
Whether you wash your face once or twice a day you will be surprised at what is left on your skin after a single cleanse. When environmental pollutants, make-up and spf combine with your skins natural oils, (sebum) they create a thick waxy coating.
Most people only spend only 20 seconds cleansing with standard face washes or make-up removal wipes. That is not enough to penetrate those layers of debris. Not only will you be left with build up that will leave your skin dull and congested. It will create a barrier to stop your skin care absorbing into your skin.
For oily skin types in can be a bit scary putting extra oil onto your skin. When Pre cleanse, (Dermalogica's oil based cleanser) is massaged into the skin it dissolves build up and attracts the dirt so it can be washed away when the oil is removed.
Always follow with your prescribed dermalogica cleanser to set you up for the healthiest looking skin.
