The Korean Beauty Routine differs from a typical western skincare routine and one of the steps in the routine that stands out is the double cleanse.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Korean double cleanse method (and how to do it!)
The Korean Double Cleansing Method is a two-step cleansing process. It involves washing your face with an oil-based cleanser first, followed by a water-based cleanser second.
Using two different cleansers at night is perfect to remove makeup, dirt and build-up for cleaner, softer, and smoother skin. It can also assist with the prevention and spread of blemishes.
The Korean Double Cleanse Method starts with an oil based cleanser, applied to dry skin.
The cleanser can be in solid or liquid form and is used to remove oil-based impurities and water resistant makeup. Not only does it gently draw out debris and pollutants without the need for harsh scrubbing, it also prevents tugging at the skin. Harsh cleansing isn’t great for your pores.
Cleansing oils are perfect for all skin types because they work with the natural oils in your skin. Unlike other cleansers, they also don’t sink into your pores or strip your skin, which dries it out.
This balm is perfect for dry, dull and mature skin because it gently but deeply cleanses.

APLB Blackout Perfect Cleansing Oil combines luxe avocado oil, macadamia seed oil and salicylic acid. It also has a nutrient enriched black food complex. It's the perfect option for skin that becomes easily sensitized, red or clogged with impurities.
As a second step, Koreans follow up with a water-based cleanser. This can be either a foaming or non-foaming cleanser. It's used to remove water-based residue including sweat and dirt. This cleanse draws out water-based debris and cleanses your face a second time to penetrate your skin for deeper cleanse.
