You already know that double cleansing is a cleansing method that uses two types of cleansers: an oil based cleanser, and a water-based cleanser. Basically, oil cleansers remove oil based impurities (makeup, sebum, etc.), and water cleansers remove water based impurities (sweat, dirt, etc.) However, this raises a lot of questions and misunderstandings. So let’s dive in.
Should I use an oil cleanser if I have oily skin?
The idea of cleansing oils is that they attract the oil and debris sitting on your skin, so they can be an effective way to lift away and dissolve makeup or sunscreen or anything else sitting on top of your face. Plus, unlike some types of cleansers that can be harsh, cleansing oils will help protect your skin's natural pH.. So, if you struggle with oily skin, using an oil cleanser is even more important. Just make sure to use non-comedogenic oil cleanser.

Are water-based cleansers stripping?
As long as you’re using a cleanser that’s right for your skin type, it will do a good job without stripping your skin. Choose cleanser that’s gentle, and with a neutral pH. This will ensure that your skin gets the deep clean that it needs, without drying your face.
Again, the double cleanse is great for this, because using an oil cleanser first means there is less impurities and debris that your water-cleanser needs to remove therefore you can choose a cleanser that is gentler.
Argan Oil Face Cleansing Method.
Before starting, if you wear eye makeup, we would advise remove it first before beginning the full facial oil cleansing. This will prevent moving makeup into pores and all over your face.
1. Put 1 teaspoon of Organic Argan Oil in the palm of your hand.
2. Apply the oil to your face. Use your fingertips to gently massage the oil into the skin for a minute to remove impurities like makeup and dead skin cells.
3.Use a damp, warm cloth to gently wipe away the oil. Be careful not to press too hard or scrub your skin, as this can irritate the skin and cause breakouts.
Voila! Deeply clean and glowing skin without stripping.
Now, you can go ahead and use your water-based cleanser. And don't forget to finish your skin care routine by applying a moisturiser. If you tried this method, please let us know your feedback.
