In my teen days, I’d just wash my face with soap and water. My skin would be squeaky clean, but dry as a bone. Then, I graduated to foaming cleansers. They’d clean my skin well enough without drying it. Until I finally started wearing sunscreen every day. Most of those cleansers were no match for it.
I soon discovered the only thing that thoroughly removed my stubborn sunscreen was an oil-based cleanser. But those have the annoying tendency to leave a slightly greasy residue on my skin. *sighs*
It’s then that I was introduced to the concept of double cleansing.
