Oil Cleansing may sound counter intuitive, but don't be afraid of applying oil to your face. Oil by itself does not create blemishes. Those are caused by many factors such as dead skin cells, bacteria, hormones-and in conjunction with each other these factors lead to pimples, blackheads, cysts and other blemishes.
Oil is your skin's natural lubricant. It's job is to heal, protect and moisturize so that skin functions properly. Your job is to learn to work with your skin, not against it.
Internally, this means hydrating by drinking water. Externally this means dissolving the oil that has hardened impurities into your pores. That is done with oil cleansing.
Start by running hot water, the highest heat you find comfortable to your hands and face. You don't want to scald, but you do need to generate steam. Immerse your washcloth and place the hot, wet cloth over your face for about 30 seconds. This opens the pores.Remove the washcloth and pour a couple teaspoons of Oil Cleanser into the palm of your hand and then massage the oils into your face. Experts suggest massaging in a circular motion for about 2 minutes and then allow the cleanser to remain on your skin for another 30 seconds. During this time wet your washcloth again in very hot water and place over your face for 10-20 seconds.Rinse the washcloth again and then gently begin rubbing the oil off your skin. Repeat this step at least 3 times, more if needed to assure all the oil cleanser has been removed.Allow your skin to return to body temperature naturally. Some people follow with a toner and moisturizer. This step is unnecessary but ultimately is up to you. The addition of other products can reintroduce elements which can make their way into your pores again. Oil cleansing may be required more frequently for those who do this. Many find that oil cleansing is needed only a few times a week, others prefer daily. As oil cleansing will naturally remove makeup and mascara (even waterproof formulas), I prefer to cleanse each evening.Troubleshooting:As with any new regime, it takes time for your body to adjust to something new. You can use an occasional mask or exfoliating scrub, but soap cleansers will be unnecessary and their use can hinder skin's regulation of its own moisture.If a particular blend does not seem to work for you, try another! Remember though that it is completely normal for your skin to go through phases of overcompensation towards dry or oily for the first week or so. Pay attention to your skin's response after the first week and make your formula adjustments then. Remember that your skin is unique, so oil cleansing will be an individual thing. Play with the frequency and formula until you find what clicks with your skin!Be sure to rinse, rinse, rinse, and rinse some more. Some users think their skin is producing excessive oil after an oil cleanse, but have simply not gotten all of the cleansing product removed.Happy Cleansing!
