If you have oily skin or wear heavy makeup, one cleanse may not be enough.  For ages, Japanese women have been using a cleansing oil or cleansing water to dissolve makeup and oil, followed by a regular foaming face wash to finish off the job and feel refreshed.  Almost all skin types can benefit from this cleansing process — those with sensitive skin who flush and blush easily just need to be careful since they may need to hold onto all the natural oils they can if they don’t produce much to begin with. Anyone who lives in a polluted, exhaust-filled city could also really benefit from a double cleanse. For your first cleanse, use a cleansing oil or cleansing milk to break up and wash away oil, makeup, and dirt on the surface. The second cleanse should be a regular cleanser, with ingredients specific to your skincare needs.
