If you’re looking to achieve glowing skin, it’s important to start by cleaning your face in the best way possible. You can do this by adding one or more oils to your face wash routine or by using an oil cleanser on its own. By using an oil cleanser,you’ll be able to take advantage of the natural anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties of certain essential oils without drying out your skin from soap or harsh chemicals that may cause other problems down the line.
Check out these steps to get started with a DIY oil face cleanser today! Start with a clean, dry face. Wet your hands and pour a small amount of the cleanser into your palm. Massage it into
your skin in circular motions for 30-60 seconds. Rinse your face with warm water
and pat dry.
Repeat this process 1-2 times per week for best results. If you don’t have time to use an oil cleanser, rub a few drops of oil between your fingers before washing them off.
Why do I need an oil cleanse?
Your skin is your largest organ and it’s constantly exposed to environmental
stressors, like pollution and UV rays. Over time, these stressors can damage your
skin barrier, leaving your skin dry, dull, and more susceptible to inflammation.
When you use an oil cleanser, the oils remove any dirt or makeup that might be
lurking on your skin so you’re left with clean pores and healthy looking skin. And
because they help repair the skin’s natural protective layer, they’re great for acne-
prone or eczema-prone skin too!
The coconut oil in this recipe also has antibacterial properties which will keep any potential breakouts at bay. The jojoba oil contains vitamin E which is known to moisturize and soften skin without
clogging pores. So, you’re getting moisture without messiness.
You’ll also notice there are only four ingredients in this recipe – all of which are easily found at your
local grocery store or pharmacy. There’s no need to make a special trip anywhere!
I’ve made up a quick how-to guide below if you want to give this homemade oil
face cleanser a try.
- First, scoop out two tablespoons of jojoba oil and two tablespoons of virgin coconut oil into a small bowl or dish.
- Next, melt one tablespoon of beeswax by placing it in a pot over low heat.
- Once melted, add three drops each of rosemary essential oil and tea tree essential oil (optional).
- Once everything is nice and liquidy (about 15 minutes), pour the mixture into desired container/jar.
- Apply about 1 teaspoon of cleansing mixture onto dry skin using hands or fingertips. Massage for about 2 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.
What are the benefits of an oil cleanse?
When it comes to face cleansing, oils get a bad rap. But the right oil can actually
help dissolve dirt and makeup while also nourishing and hydrating your skin. A
DIY oil face cleanser is easy to make and customize to your skin type, plus it’s
gentle and effective. Here’s how to do an oil cleanse:
- Gently swipe the pad over your face in upward strokes from forehead to chin – going with the grain of your hair follicles will minimize pores.
- Follow up with a swipe of balm or oil – whatever you’re using as part of your routine.
- Finish by using another soaked cotton pad to remove any excess residue (including any leftover eye makeup).
If you have very dry skin, use one soaked cotton pad per side of your face; if you have oily skin, use one soaked cotton pad per half of your face; if you have combination or normal
skin, use one soaked cotton pad all over. Rinse off any residue with cool
water and pat dry. That’s it! You now have glowing skin! To save money, fill
a pump bottle with your favorite oil (a good place to start is jojoba), mix in
distilled water until the mixture reaches a thin liquid consistency, then add
five drops of lavender essential oil for its balancing properties.
Which oils should I choose for my face?
There are a few things to consider when choosing oils for your face. First, think
about your skin type.
If you have oily skin, you’ll want to choose an oil that is non-
comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog your pores. You might also want to choose an
oil with antibacterial properties to help keep blemishes at bay.
Some good choices include jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, and hazelnut oil. For dry skin, coconut oil is one
of the best choices because it’s high in antioxidants and lauric acid which will
moisturize your skin. It’s also great for acne because of its antibacterial properties.
On the other hand, if you have sensitive skin then rosehip seed oil or hemp seed oil
would be better options since they’re less comedogenic than some other oils.
In general, all types of oils can work well on your face as long as they’re blended
together well enough so that they don’t clog your pores!
