Did you know you can cleanse your face with our Flawless Facial Oil? Cleansing with oil can be a wonderful addition to your skin care routine, whether used alone or as part of a double cleanse.
It’s another option to remove makeup, surface debris, and excess oil. What makes oil cleansing different is how it works compared to traditional water-soluble cleansers that have a cream, gel, or foaming texture. Traditional cleansers cleanse primarily with surfactants, ingredients that interact with oil, makeup, and surface debris on skin in a manner that allows them to be rinsed with water.
Oils don’t just moisturize skin, they also work as solvents, a group of ingredients that can dissolve similar substances (remember the rule, “like dissolves like” from chemistry class?). Oils are a special type of solvent because they’re lipophilic, meaning they’re naturally attracted to other oils, including the sebum our skin produces and the oil-like ingredients in makeup. This is what allows the oils in a cleansing oil to quickly dissolve makeup and excess oil while softening skin at the same time.
The main benefits of cleansing with oil:
Provides a quick and easy removal of all types of makeup and sunscreens.
The gentlest way to cleanse your skin thoroughly.
It doesn't disrupt the natural pH level of your skin and never leaves your skin feeling tight and dry. Instead, your skin feels clean and fresh!
Leave skin feeling supple and smooth.
Is compatible with any other type of cleanser should you choose to double cleanse
How to cleanse with oil:
It’s very much like using a regular cleanser: Apply a quarter size amount into palm of hand, and gently massage onto dry or damp skin. Let sit for a minute or two. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and washcloth. Pat skin dry with a soft, clean towel.
Cleansing with oil is my new favorite way to thoroughly cleanse my face and I adore how fresh my face feels after with NO greasy residue! 😄
