Benefits of Oil Cleansing November 29 2015
Oil cleansing is an ancient technique used to effectively wash the skin. We prefer oil cleansing because it wont dry out your skin like soap does, and it re-balances your skins oil production. Soap effects the natural PH of your skin, which is normally acidic, and strips the skin of its natural oils. This makes the skin work harder to re-balance itself, causing it to produce more sebum (oil) to moisturize and bring it's PH level up. This will lead to more oily and congested skin.
Oil cleansing will create harmony with the skin and is great for all skin types. If you are naturally oily, don't be afraid! Oil cleansing will re-balance your skin so that there is no over production of sebum throughout the day. Alternatively, if you have dry skin, it will allow further production of oil to occur. Dry skin is lacking oil - dehydrated skin is lacking water.
We recommend using a damp wash cloth, towel or cotton pads to remove your oil cleanser. This ensures all of the oil is gently removed from your skin. If oil is left behind after cleansing, you will not feel clean and clarified. Remove all of your oil cleanser from the skin before applying remaining skincare products. Oil cleansing can be done once or twice a day - preferably in the evening.
