Let’s talk about what oil cleansing is.
Yes even oily skin can use an oil cleanser!
What is oil cleansing?
Oil cleansing is when you use a specific combination of oils to rid your skin of makeup and other pollutants that your skin obtains throughout the day. Oil cleansing is a great makeup remover. Generally, you would use an oil cleanser as some might use a cold cream prior to using a cleanser rather it be a gel/foam based and or cream cleanser.
Why would you want to use this ancient technique?
Most cleansers are made to strip the skin of pollutants. But, in the process of stripping the cleanser takes with it our natural oils. All skin and types need moisture. Our skin’s natural defense is to produce sebum (oil) which protects it. When you strip your skin of this vital protectant your skin is vulnerable. This is where oil cleansing comes in. When you oil cleanse your skin you are adding back the protectant it needs.
Have you heard the saying that “like attracts like?”
This saying is exactly why oil cleansing works for even oily skin. When you oil cleanse on oily skin the ingredients attract to the oil in your skin and rid it of excess oil or sebum, it then replaces it with the good oil that your skin needs. Even oily skin can lack moisture. When this happens it reaches out into the air looking for moisture and when it doesn’t find it it then produces more oil to prevent dehydration.
How do I start oil cleansing?
