Oil Cleansing: Are Natural Methods Always the Best?

Why Use Oils for Makeup Removal?

Natural oils have many fans because they offer numerous benefits for the skin, but not every skin type tolerates them well. What benefits do they provide?

  1. High Effectiveness: Oils effectively dissolve makeup and sebum thanks to fatty acids, allowing for deep pore cleansing.

  2. Moisturization and Regeneration:
    Rich in vitamins and antioxidants, oils moisturize the skin and support its natural regenerative processes.

  3. Protection of the Hydrolipid Barrier:
    Oils do not disturb the skin’s natural protective barrier, which is crucial for maintaining its health and elasticity.

  4. Gentleness to the Skin:
    Properly selected oils do not cause irritation, making them an ideal solution even for those with sensitive skin.

How to Properly Use Oil for Makeup Removal

Using oils for makeup removal is simple and can easily be incorporated into your evening skincare routine:

  1. Dampen Your Face with Warm Water:
    This will ease the application and help the oil spread better on your skin.

  2. Apply Oil to Your Hands:
    One to two teaspoons is sufficient. Warm the oil in your hands and then gently massage it into your face.

  3. Massage Your Face:
    Massage the oil into your skin in circular motions for about two minutes, focusing on areas where makeup is most concentrated.

  4. Rinse with Warm Water:
    Use a muslin cloth to thoroughly remove oil residues along with any remaining makeup.
