Double Cleansing With Our Medical-Grade Skincare AT DERMACARE SAN DIEGO

Cleansing the skin has become an essential part of the skincare ritual since impurities cause acne breakouts and various skin imperfections. Still, people fail to realize that one cleanser is not usually enough to get rid of all the dirt accumulated on the skin. 

84 percent of women wear makeup, and one round of cleansing might not remove all the dirt within the pores. This is where double cleansing can help. In this blog, readers can learn more about the benefits of incorporating this technique in their skincare routine along with the products we recommend.

What Is Double Cleansing and Why Do It?

As the name suggests, double cleansing is the process of cleansing the skin twice. This is something that many people tend to do, especially when taking off makeup, but the actual process is different. With double cleansing, two cleansers are used to obtain the maximum effect, with one product complementing the other. 

The first cleanser should be an oil-based option to dislodge excess impurities like sebum, environmental pollution, and makeup. The second cleanser is generally a water-based exfoliating option, which gets deeper into the pores. This process allows the cleanser to remove trapped impurities that were not successfully removed during the first round of cleansing. 

Using a mild cleanser first and following with an exfoliator makes it easier to reduce excess dirt that gathers deep in the pores throughout the day. Incorporating double cleansing into the evening skincare routine can prevent potential breakouts while keeping the skin healthy and hydrated. The process also restores vibrancy to the skin by reducing the blemish-inducing contaminants. 

Do You Know What Skincare Products You Should Use?

For an efficient double cleansing ritual, you must use the right products. But did you know that the best care comes in the form of medical-grade skincare? Dermacare offers various essential skincare options that can work with every skin type!

Gentle Cleansers We Recommend

Double cleansing comes with a fair amount of stress on the skin, so it’s essential to find a gentle cleanser. At Dermacare, we recommend the following: 

  • Antioxidant Cleanser

Hydration is essential to the skin, especially for those sensitive to environmental factors. Our antioxidant cleanser is based on botanicals and soothing antioxidants and its soap-free formula is meant to protect the skin.

  • Papaya Enzyme Gentle Cleanser

Papaya extract has been shown to have great cleansing properties, making this cleanser an excellent option for those living in harsh climates. The formula of the Papaya Enzyme gentle cleanser has been enriched with vitamin E and green tea, nourishing the skin and exfoliating dead skin cells.

Exfoliators We Recommend

Exfoliators are an important part of the double-cleansing routine, as they remove dead skin cells that were not addressed during the first cleansing stage. We recommend the following options for those who want flawless skin: 

  • AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser

Enriched with high-performing ingredients like salicylic and glycolic acid, the AHA/BHA exfoliating cleanser aims to remove damaged skin and minimize pores. It is ideal for those who have pigmented, acne-prone skin. 

  • 10% Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Pads

Glycolic acid is very efficient at removing residual oil and dead skin while helping the epidermis retain moisture. Enriched with witch hazel, the 10% Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Pads are a highly efficient option for reducing pore size and preventing acne breakouts.
