What is it?
Oil cleansing is a method to deep clean the skin, remove makeup, impurities, dead skin cells and excess oil buildups on the skin.
Yet it is gentle and it doesn’t dry the skin.
How the Oil Cleansing Method works?
Oil cleansing is based upon the principle of like-dissolves-like.
The oil used to cleanse the skin dissolves the excess oil and buildups on the skin.
Many of the environmental impurities and cosmetic products are not water-soluble.
Washing the skin with pure water would not be sufficient to remove them.
The types of oils you can use for this method
Different oils and essential oils are suitable for different skin types.
One of the most gentle oils to use in this system is almond oil.
For normal to dry skin use-
Olive oil, Sunflower oil, Sweet Almond oil, Jojoba oil.
Oily skin– I recommended adding an astringent oil to the blend.
Astringent oils can cause the skin feeling a bit dry.
Astringent oils are suitable for combination and oily skin.
They will often shrink the appearance of pores by temporarily constricting the epidermis.
For oily skin – optional astringent oils that can help to normalize the
BASE OILS: Argan oil, Castor oil, Grapeseed oil and Hazelnut oil.
ESSENTIAL OILS: Cypress, Patchouli, Rose, Rosemary and Citrus oils.
Glowing Skin Cleansing Oil
Lavender fragrance is also helpful to relax the mind.
Sunflower oil and Olive oil are nursing and gentle for healthy skin.
I recommend doing this cleansing treatment 2-3 times a week at night time.
