Single, Double or Triple Cleansing?

Before we start discussing whether single, double or triple cleanse is the ideal cleansing procedure, let us explain what we mean by these terms.

Single Cleansing: It refers to cleansing with just one product; gel / soap, cleansing oil or foam.

Double Cleansing: Double cleansing is as simple as it sounds.  It involves thoroughly washing your face with two cleansers.  In this case, the cleansers need to be two different types to have the desired effect. The first is usually an oil-based cleanser and the second one is a gel / soap, or foam.

Triple Cleansing: It refers to cleansing the skin with three different products where each has its own properties and benefits.  The first cleanser is usually in the form of oil and the other two are gels / soaps or cleansing foams where one of the two is used daily and the other one 1-2 times a week depending on the needs of each skin.

Single Cleansing:

Single cleansing is usually done in the morning when our skin is not necessarily “dirty”. Every night our skin produces new cells – when we sleep, the regeneration process can increase up to three times!  Therefore, it is important to remove these dead skin cells in the morning to have brighter and more radiant skin.

CP Herbalist team suggests using The Toning Cleansing Gel or The Calming Cleansing Gel every morning, depending on your skin type.

The Toning Cleansing Gel is rich in powerful herbs that deeply cleanse the skin with their antibacterial & antimicrobial properties. It is ideal for oily/combination skin types & hormone-related breakouts in need of regeneration. Moreover, if you get in the habit of using it in your daily routine, you will be amazed by its numerous benefits as it is full of antioxidants that help the skin flush out any toxins thus resulting in healthier skin.

If you have combination/ normal or sensitive skin, you can try The Calming Cleansing Gel which gently cleanses the skin while maintaining the health of the natural barrier function.

Double Cleansing:

We often believe that our skin is clean when in reality, it’s not. If you wear make-up, or even just sunscreen, it is vital to do a double cleanse during your evening ritual to ensure your skin is thoroughly cleansed before bed. The reason why we double cleanse, is to first remove makeup / sunscreen and impurities that get trapped in our pores and then to really cleanse our face.

The Pure Cleansing Oil is always the first step in our evening ritual as it dissolves makeup / sunscreen and removes impurities while nourishing the skin with its bioactive ingredients.

For Double cleansing, the CP Herbalist team suggests using The Toning Cleansing Gel or The Calming Cleansing Gel depending on your skin type.

Triple Cleansing:

Triple cleansing is for the times when our skin is exposed to extreme conditions such as sun, heat, cold, humidity, beach, swimming pools, etc.  Different cleansers have different benefits, so each step aims for a different purpose, starting with the removal of makeup, the air pollution and impurities and exfoliation of dead skin cells at the end.

If you have oily/combination skin & skin that suffers from hormone-related breakouts, firstly, use The Pure Cleansing Oil and then The Toning Cleansing Gel every night.  Use The Calming Cleansing Gel 1-2 times a week as a triple cleanser which is especially formulated with soothing herbs that nourish the skin. Its moisturizing ingredients also provide a healthy glow to the skin.

If your skin does not fall into one of the above categories or you have sensitive skin, then first use The Pure Cleansing Oil and then The Calming Cleansing Gel every night.  Use The Toning Cleansing Gel 1-2 times a week as a triple cleanser to benefits from its antioxidant herbs that deeply cleanse the pores of your skin, remove any impurities and toxins and improve its tone.
