How To: Oil Cleansing
The Oil Cleansing Method
You might remember from high school chemistry lessons that "like dissolves like". Oil and water do not mix - oil does not dissolve in water and vice versa. Oil cleansing works by dissolving oil-based make-up, spf, and sebum on your skin, lifting away all the impurities and gently cleansing your skin. To do this, you will massage the oil into your skin and then remove it with a damp hot cloth.
How To Use
- Dispense a few pumps of oil into your palm.
- Always apply the oil to DRY skin.
- Massage into the skin on the face and neck, using circular motions for 1 -2 minutes.
- Take the oil up to the hairline and down your neck too.
- If you're wearing eye make-up rub the oil on to your lids and lashes too (take care not to get any in your eye!)
- Hold a washcloth under running hand-hot water until it is soaked through, then wring it out.
- If you have time, you can lay the warm cloth over your face and take a minute to relax and breathe in the beautiful fragrance of the oil until the cloth cools.
- Wipe your face and neck gently with the damp hot cloth. Rinse and wring out the cloth under the warm water and wipe again.
- Repeat this process until all traces of oil and make-up are removed.
If you are wearing spf or make-up we recommend that should double cleanse your face. The first cleanse will remove the spf/make-up and the second will give your skin a deep clean and prevent clogged pores.
You can use your oil cleanser for both cleanses or you can use an alternative cleanser for the second cleanse - but always use the oil for the first cleanse.
Follow up with a refreshing and hydrating toner and nourishing serum and/or moisturiser.
