So.. when I first heard about oil cleansing, I thought it was crazy. “Cleanse your skin–specifically your face–using oil? That sounds like a terrible idea and acne waiting to happen.” But my curiosity got the best of me and I looked into it. I came across a great oil cleansing tutorial by popular natural hair YouTube guru HeyFranHey. You can watch it here. I decided to give it a try.
I have dry skin and I read that the best oil to oil cleanse dry skin with is almond oil and sunflower seed oil. I got a plastic bottle and poured one part almond oil and one part sunflower seed oil into the bottle. I spritzed a couple of sprays of oil onto my fingers and massaged the oil into my skin. I then rinsed out the excess oil with warm water and sealed it all in with a couple splashes of cold water. After, I spritzed one dab of the oil mixture and massaged it into my skin as a moisturizer.
I’ve been doing this this past summer and I must say.. it’s awesome! It’s worked out well for my skin. My skin has had less dry patches and my skin has gotten clearer. My skin has a natural glow now too. I plan on continuing the oil cleansing method. It’s also been a great way to naturally remove make-up.
I recommend this. I would definitely give it a try. I did and the results have been nothing but great!
