Cleansing is one of the most personal aspects of a skincare routine and the products you can use are numerous. From foams, gels and lotions, to our current favourite- oil cleansing.
Oil cleansers can be complicated commercial formulations, or as simple as a single pure and nature carrier oil like Almond or Jojoba oil. You can even try out our DIY Oil Cleanser recipes!
Oil cleansing melts away makeup, excess oils and dirt without irritating or drying out the skin. It's the perfect choice for people with dry or sensitive skin... but can be used for oily skin too.
How to Oil Cleanse
Step 1. Add a liberal amount of oil to your palm.
Step 2. Spread over your whole face and neck, paying attention to areas of heavy makeup.
Step 3. Soak a face washer in warm water then squeeze out any excess.
Step 4. Press towel to face and hold for 10 or so seconds to warm up the oil on your skin.
Step 5. Wipe away oil, dirt and makeup with the warm towel.
Repeat if necessary or desired.
For a deeper cleanse, you may like to add a detoxifying clay mask to your routine once or twice a week.
