The Oil Cleansing Method - Your new natural solution

Author: Ashley Scobie   Date Posted:7 August 2018 

I’ll admit, when Mum (lanae) first introduced me to oil cleansing I was sceptical. My skin is quite naturally oily so I was nervous about putting pure oil straight on my skin & letting it seep into my pores. I was also worried that it might make me break out & that the oil would clog my pores. But oh how wrong I was! I can’t get enough of It!

So I’m going to give you all the information you need before giving this cleaning method a go.

Firstly, what is oil cleaning?

Although it sounds foreign, the idea of using natural oils to cleanse the skin actually makes a lot of sense. The basic idea behind oil cleaning is to use natural oils in a specific combination to cleanse the skin and naturally balance the skins natural oil production. Remember, like removes like therefore oil removes oil. Oil cleansing brings the ph of the skin gently back into balance.

Does it work?

Oooh yes! Like anything you have to give it some time. Magic doesn’t happen overnight. Don’t be alarmed if you go through a small break out (this is actually great) as this is just your skin removing all the gunk and toxins that should not be in your skin. But stick with it for at least a month and you’ll probably find that your skin is no longer dry, any blackheads and whitehead will be reduced, your skin will look healthier, smoothers and brighter.

Oily skin, dry skin, mature skin or combination skin

Think back to high school science; one of the first things you would have learnt is that “like dissolved like”. So, if you have oily skin, the way to fix this is actually to treat your skin to more oil (good oil of course). Whether you have oily skin, mature skin, combination skin or ultra-dry skin, I highly recommend you give oil cleansing a go.

How to use it?

Easy. Massage 1-2 pumps of oil all over a dry face for 5 minutes. Apply a hot cloth to face, allowing the steam to lift away impurities. Gently wipe away excess oil with cloth and repeat this step a few times until all oil is removed. 

3 in 1 product??

Well, I think so anyway. Not only does it remove all the gunk from your skin, but it also doubles as a makeup remover! How? Simply pop the oil straight over your makeup and start rubbing! Then, simply continue with the wash cloth as per usual until it’s all off! Plus, its ultra-moisturising and hydrating which means you won’t need to apply all your lotions and potions like normal. The natural oils will give your skin all it needs.
