Double Cleansing

Pure freedom – why double cleansing has double the benefits.

Is it just a trend? The concept of double cleansing originated in Korea and is now spreading all over the world. But there is more to it than simply cleansing your face twice. Double cleansing consists of two different cleansing phases that cleverly complement each other, working together to give your skin double the benefits.

The concept behind double cleansing.

Each time you cleanse your face, there are numerous different impurities to remove: your make-up, daytime skin care, sunscreen, excess sebum... in other words, substances containing oil, wax, or grease that are best removed using an oil-based facial cleansing product. There is also sweat, dead skin cells, and small particles of dirt, which are best removed using a water-based cleanser. Combining two products that are designed in different ways and applying them one after the other allows you to cleanse your skin completely, clearing the pores and allowing your face to breathe. Still have questions?


Isn’t that a bit complicated?

Quite the opposite: you will develop your personal cleansing routine in no time, leaving your skin feeling wonderfully free. Wash off the day and slip into bed without a care in the world. Start your day with a new level of clarity. Does that not sound good?


Double Cleansing

Does it make sense to double cleanse twice a day?

That depends on the skin care you use and your personal cleansing routine. Double cleansing in the evening is especially effective because during the day, your skin is exposed to many external influences, as well as products such as sunscreen and make-up. Your skin needs a thorough cleansing in the evening to allow it to breathe freely and regenerate at night.

At Dr. Hauschka, we recommend using stimulating, water-based skin care products at night. A water-based cleanser is sufficient for the morning. However, if you use a cream at night, you should also carry out a double cleansing in the morning.


Is double cleansing suitable for all skin types?

Yes, the concept of a multi-step facial cleansing regime is suitable for blemished skin, dry skin, sensitive skin and normal skin. Dr. Hauschka’s facial cleansers are suitable for all skin conditions. They use natural ingredients to gently cleanse the skin while maintaining your skin’s moisture balance and provide all the care it needs.


Can natural cosmetics be used for double cleansing?

Yes. After all, thorough cleansing requires knowledge about cosmetics and cleverly designed products rather than aggressive ingredients.


Double cleansing with Dr. Hauschka | 100% certified natural cosmetics.

Dr. Hauschka double cleansing products contain extracts of medicinal plants and – depending on the cleansing stage – high-quality vegetable oils, almond meal or Rügen chalk. Where possible, we source our raw materials from organic farming and support fair trade projects as a matter of course.


What double cleansing products are available from Dr. Hauschka?

1. Cleansing step: The Soothing Cleansing Milk is our pre-cleanser for the whole face. We recommend using our Eye Make-up Remover to pre-cleanse the eye area.

2. Cleansing step: Our Cleansing Balm, with its refreshing gel-to-milk texture and our Cleansing Cream – one of our classic cleansing products – are the ideal second step.

Extra tip: If you wear little to no make-up during the day, you can use the Cleansing Balm as a 2-in-1 product.

Extra-Tipps: Finish off your cleansing regime with a few spritzes of Facial Toner. If you want an even more intensive cleanse, continue with steps three and four: a Clarifying Steam Bath followed by a Clarifying Clay Mask.
