Do you really need to double cleanse?

blog post break outs cleansing dehydrated double cleanse dry skin natural skincare oil cleansing plant-based skincare routine

WHAT?? I hear you say! Let me start by saying that I have a long history of double cleansing, prompted by my use of Dermalogica pre cleanse many years ago! Up until a few months ago double cleansing was a core part of my skincare routine and I saw no reason to veer away from it.
