Double Cleansing – Better safe than sorry

Trends change. But radiantly beautiful skin never goes out of fashion. For this, good facial cleansing is a basic requirement – and requires more than soap and water. Make - up, dirt and sebum clog your pores. But Double cleansing is more than just a beauty - trend : Spots, blackheads and other blemishes don’t stand a chance against this form of facial cleansing.

Double Cleansing: Once is once too little


A single cleanse is not enough to get flawless and glowing skin. As the first cleanse only takes of the to p layer of make - up, the pores underneath are still soiled. The results are clogged pores and blemishes. Double cleansing cleans the skin in two steps with oil and water based products. Fat - based particles such as talc or make - up are removed with, for exam ple, cleansing oil or cleansing milk; in other words, oil - based products. Water - soluble impurities, such as dust or skin particles, are removed with water - based products such as cleansing water.

Double Cleansing: Done once, twice as effective


Double Clea nsing should preferably be done at bedtime in the evening.


Step 1:

The first rule of double cleansing: Wash your hands! Otherwise, germs and bacteria get rubbed directly onto the face. Of course, the towel used should be as clean as possible. Now apply some oil - based make - up remover onto dry hands and massage the product into the skin. Then wash the face with lukewarm water. Tip: The right water temperature is important. Water that is too warm can irritate the skin of the face. Water that is too cold clo ses the pores, which works against cleansing.The make - up remover can of course be massaged onto the skin of the face with a cotton wool pad – preferably with circular movements. If you want to pamper your skin, you can use a sponge or double cleansing brush.

Step 2:

It’s not called double cleansing for nothing: Now apply a water - based face wash gel and rinse with lukewarm water. When the wash gel is completely removed, rinse your face with cold water. This closes the pores and prevents a further build - up of dirt.


Step 3:

A night cream is the perfect way to round off a double cleansing. The advantage: Double cleansing helps the skin to better absorb the cream’s ingredients – according to studies, it even increases the absorption of anti - ageing ingredients by up to 30 percent.

Our Diadermine cleansing tip:

The skin of the face is fundamentally sensitive and requires a certain layer of grease. Double cleansing is especially suitable for normal and combination skin. There are a variety of special products on offer here, such as cleansing oils or cleansing creams. Those with sensitive skin should make sure to cleanse the skin gently. Cleaning this type of skin too intensely can cause skin irritation.
