Why Choose Face Cleansing Oils

The oil cleansing method is a pure, minimalist beauty secret – the type your grandmother would likely approve of.

The idea behind it is twofold: like dissolves like, and balance is the key to healthy, happy skin. As we go about our day, dirt, pollution, and other impurities become trapped within the oil on our face. Oil cleansing is a gentle and simple method to dissolve facial oil congested with bacteria, dead skin cells, dirt and buildup, and replace it with fresh, clean, vibrant plant oils – without stripping or overdrying the skin.

Balance is Key
Did you know that your skin naturally produces oil – not only to moisturize but also to heal, protect, and nourish? Until recently, the belief was that oil itself clogs pores. In truth, a number of factors such as hormones and the buildup of bacteria and dead skin cells can cause irritation and breakouts. When harsh cleansers or free radicals remove natural oils, your skin goes into overdrive by creating more oil, which can then lead to dryness, irritation, or blemishes. By using a balancing and beneficial cleansing oil, you restore your skin’s natural health and beauty.

Respect and Honor Your Natural Beauty
We like the sound of that. So did ancient queens, who knew that moisturizing oils were the secret to healthy, happy, beautiful skin. Think Cleopatra.

While cleansing with oils is especially beneficial for extra-sensitive skin, it works well for all skin types, even acne-prone skin. The cleansing oil method is as much about self-love as it is about caring for your skin, so be sure to set aside enough time to truly enjoy the ritual of pampering and appreciating your skin while you cleanse and nourish it.

It’s important to note that when trying anything new, it may take a bit of time for your skin to adjust (dermatologists say up to a month), so be patient. During the adjustment period, it’s possible for your skin to react negatively. Don’t give up! We recommend you drink lots of water, try our holistic beauty tips, and stay the course. And avoid using harsh cleansers during this transition period as this can further confuse your skin and cause the adjustment period to last longer.
