If you’ve been on the social media beauty scene, you may have come across the triple cleansing trend. While the double cleansing method is tried and tested, will adding one more step to your routine deliver added benefits? The crux of this technique involves using three different cleansers with an aim to further remove dirt, debris and grime from your skin and to allow for better penetration of other skincare products that come next. But, is it for everyone? Should you jump onto the bandwagon like me? Let’s find out.

How To Triple Cleanse?

One triple cleanse routine involves starting with an oil-based cleanser, followed by a cream cleanser, and then finishing with a gel-based or foam cleanser. Another way you can triple cleanse is by using micellar water to remove makeup, followed by a cleansing oil and then finally, a foaming cleanser.

Should You Try This Facial Cleansing Ritual?

How often you should wash your face or how deeply solely depends on your skin type. If you have traces of oil on the skin round the clock, wear makeup everyday and you work in a hot environment, triple cleansing could actually be beneficial as it would wash off all accumulated dirt and sebum, and deeply cleanse your skin. However, I suggest you watch out if you are battling with eczema, psoriasis or irritated and inflamed skin, as it could irritate your skin further. It is best to add this deep cleansing ritual to your nighttime skincare routine if you wear a lot of products, SPF and makeup, and are mostly outdoors. Most importantly, choose the right type of products before jumping on the trend of triple cleansing.
