SECRET TO BEAUTIFUL SKIN – HOW YOU CLEAN YOUR SKIN MATTERS!

how oil cleansing method work

"Cleansing oils contain hydrating and soothing ingredients that may actually be more effective and less irritating than some traditional cleansers," Joshua Zeichner, M.D., a New York City- certified dermatologist.

CLEANSING IS A DELICATE BALANCE

Overdo it and you will strip your skin of natural oils, leaving your face dry, sensitive and possibly even greasier as your skin starts over-producing oil to compensate. But not cleansing your skin deeply enough can allow acne causing gunk to build up in your pores.

PROBLEM WITH FOAMING CLEANSERS

Foaming cleanser is like soap for the face. It often upset your skin biology as they often contain harsh detergents which can be damaging to the protective layer of the skin by removing too much of your body’s natural oils (which is what hold your skin cells in the proper arrangement to create an effective barrier).  When you use a foaming cleanser, you raise the pH of your skin and completely wash off all the good and bad bacteria. Imbalance skin’s pH can lead to dehydration, dullness, dryness, redness, sensitivity and ageing.

BENEFITS OF NATURAL OIL CLEANSING

How it works?

Oil cleansing works on the principle that oil dissolves oil. When cleansing oils are massaged into the skin, the good oils work to dissolve any bad oils that build up on the skin’s surface. These oily impurities include dirt, grime, makeup, sunscreen and oxidised sebum (which cause blackheads). The oil cleanser binds to these impurities, which are then drawn out and wipe away with a warm washcloth.

Benefits of oil cleansing?

 The most important benefit of oil cleansing is being able to remove impurities without stripping nutrients off the skin! Our non-pore clogging natural oil cleanser contain the perfect balance of beautifying oils like Jojoba seed oil and Argan oil which are highly moisturising and packed with antioxidants and drawing oils like Castor oil to help pull out and dissolve old oils. Oil cleansing is great for blemish prone skin as well as for anyone who feels like their skin is dry or their pores are easily clogged, because the oil will help take impurities away while moisturising your skin leaving clean skin that is soft and nourished.

Let's work with our bodies and not against them and use non-foaming soap-alternatives that don't strip away our natural oils, alter our skin pH, or damage our skin.
