In South Korea (and Japan) women have always been very interested in skin care that they treat daily with a beauty routine based on layering different products.

In recent years, Korean skin care has also spread in the West where most beauty addicts started to follow all its 10 steps, to be repeated every morning and evening with some variations.

The steps of Korean skin care involve the use of these products:

  1. Make-up remover oil or butter;
  2. Foaming detergent;
  3. Exfoliant (scrub or acid-based exfoliant) to be used twice a week;
  4. Toner (to be chosen according to skin type);
  5. Essence (to be chosen according to skin type);
  6. Face serum (to be chosen based on skin problems);
  7. Face mask (to be chosen according to skin problems) to be used twice a week;
  8. Moisturizer (to be chosen according to skin type);
  9. Eye contour cream;
  10. Sunscreen (during the day) or night mask (twice per week).

Last step double facial cleansing

Korean skin care gives excellent results over time, especially if we repeat it morning and evening and if we use products suitable for our skin.

The most innovative steps of this routine are the first two: we must use both a fat-based cleanser (oil or make-up remover butter) and a foaming product. The combination of these two cleansers is called double cleansing.

Double cleansing: what products are needed

The double cleansing is suitable for all skin types and allows us to cleanse the skin in depth. With the double cleansing we avoid the proliferation of white and black points.

The oily cleanser acts by affinity on the skin: the lipids contained in butters or make-up remover oils perform a solvent action on the fats in which dirt (make-up, cream residues, pollutants …) is incorporated.

Detergente struccante oleoso

The foaming detergent acts on the skin by contrast and removes impurities and dirt thanks to surfactants that make the dirt residues and lipids of the previous detergent soluble so that they can be washed away with water.

For the first step of the double cleansing, you can also use a natural oil, such as coconut oil.

For the second step, Mia Cosmetics In Da Cloud is the ideal foaming cleanser.

How double cleansing is done

Double cleansing should be done both in the morning and in the evening. In the morning, the double cleansing is used to cleanse the face from the residues of the products applied the night before and from toxins and excess sebum formed during the nocturnal renewal of the skin. In the evening, the double cleansing serves to remove make-up and cleanse the skin of pollutants and excess sebum.

Double cleansing is done as follows:

  • Pour a small amount of oil into the palms of your hands or take a small knob of make-up remover butter with your fingers. Rub your hands together to heat the oil (or melt the butter);
  • Massage the product on the face and also on the eyes gently. If you are wearing make-up, insist on your eyes in order to dissolve the mascara;
  • Wash your hands, leave them wet. Pour the foaming cleanser on your hands and massage it on your face;
  • Rinse everything off with warm water and proceed with your normal skincare.

After the double cleansing you will notice that the skin will be radiant, smooth and compact.
