Pure, organic oils are a wonderful edition to your daily natural skin care arsenal. Oil Cleansing is a beautiful, gentle way to remove make up and environmental toxins, while helping the skin regain its natural oil balance. After just a few days you should start to see an improvement in your skin tone with plump hydrated skin, and hopefully less blemishes too.
The main benefit of oil cleansers is that they work with your skins natural oils so your skin is never left feeling stripped or dry. Oil cleansers are not just suitable for dryer skin types, they are also suitable for oily, combination and even acne-prone skin, because oil actually dissolves oil!
For a luxurious oil cleanser that really ticks every box, I love the Black Chicken Remedies, Cleanse My Face. This uses 14 beautiful natural oils to dissolve excess oil and target impurities held deep within your skin. It's great for removing makeup but it may also help balance oil in hormonal skin. It contains Organic Castor oil which can penetrate more deeply than many regular plant oils and help draw out impurities held deeply, Organic Camellia Tea oil (used by Geishas!) and rich in antioxidants, the essential oils of Palma Rosa to help balance sebum, Patchouli to help calm and soothe skin, and uplifting Geranium. This really is the crème de la crème of oil cleansers. Once you start using oils to cleanse, you may also like to try using organic oils for the double cleansing method.
For more budget conscious versions, you can also use Pure Jojoba oil or even organic coconut oil, both are excellent cleansing oils.
To use, these couldn't be more simple! Just warm your face with a face cloth soaked in nice warm water, this will open your pores and prep the skin. Then massage a few drops into your face with your fingers for a minute, then wipe away all those impurities with your face cloth. Your skin will feel clean, calm and hydrated immediately. Follow with your favourite natural or organic moisturiser!
