Facial Cleansing Oil

Clear skin is something we all strive to attain. Blemishes, pimples, and blackheads etc, all knock the confidence in the best of us when they appear. Many skin care products on the market today leave the skin stripped of its natural oil. In response to this, the body signals production of more oil. It's an over compensation and is very often the reason behind clear skin troubles.

When the problem seems to be oily skin, the last thing you'd consider bringing into the equation is more oil. But, when considering your cleansing routine, it's useful to know that oil dissolves oil. As it soaks into the skin, it is carried deep into the pores, drawing dust and grime to the surface where it can be wiped away cleanly. The essential fatty acids found in plant oils also help to restore the balance of the skin's natural moisture.

For many, cleansing this way is found to be more preferable and effective than using alcohols and synthetics to strip the skin of oil. Regular cleansing with natural oil is helpful with fine lines, delivering a welcome moisturization. It leaves the skin feeling incredibly soft, offering a natural healthy radiance.

This has always fascinated me -- the oil can help get rid of oil. My skin is oily all year, moreso in the summertime. I don't use oil on my skin in the summer at all, except for maybe a very light olive oil/water emulsion. In the winter, however, I am experimenting with other things. This sounds like a good option to try. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, dM. I massage this in and use with a very warm damp washcloth draped on my face to "steam". It only takes minutes, but it leaves a wonderful feeling of both clean and soft. Used this way, it really does dissolve the dirt and excess oil. You still need to use your normal moisturizing cream though because this oil blend is for cleansing, and not moisturizing.
