Oil cleanse for chemical spf?

Hello! I heard a debate about if you should double/oil cleanse at night if you wear a chemical spf, since it doesn’t create a ‘physical shield’ so a regular cleanse is okay, and if I just wear a chemical spf and use an oil cleanser for my double cleanse it’s too rough on the skin. Thoughts?

Well, most regular cleanser has enough surfactants in it to take off sunscreen, but it is advised to double cleanse for a more deep cleansing at night. And if you are feeling cleansing oil is too rough for your skin, it is either the cleansing oil doesn't has enough slip to it, that you feel you are dragging your skin. Or, you are massaging your skin too hard. And if cleansing oill still doesn't work for you, you can opt for cleansing balm, milk cleanser or micellar water to take off your sunscreen.

Both mineral and chemical is absorbed into the skin for it to work. Mineral sunscreen molecule is bigger so it feels like it’s on the skin but it’s absorbed. Double cleansing depends on how much sunscreen you have on and how many times you reapply. It’s something you have to test and find out if it works for you.
