I am naturally oil-prone, so the thought of washing my face with oil is one I have ignored for years. Then, while on a vacation where the weather was humid beyond reason—my gentle cleanser began to sting. In an effort to cleanse without irritation, I decided to give oil a try. Here is why you should wash your face with oil.
Oil Is All-Natural And Gentle
Unrefined or virgin olive or coconut oil are completely nature-made. Without any chemical preservatives or man-made cleansers, you never have to worry about getting a gentle cleanse.
Easily Dissolves Makeup
Every lady knows that eye shadow and mascara can be challenging to remove. However, oil easily dissolves your makeup. The only exceptions are the 12-hour lipsticks and stains which are formulated not to budge.
It Won’t Make You Oily—In Fact It Will Give You A Healthy Glow
If you are like me, the last thing you want is to make your oily skin even oilier. However, oil dissolves oil—replacing your shine with a healthy glow.
Simply wash with pure olive or coconut oil, or a mix of 50/50 castor oil. Use a warm washcloth to gently wipe your skin clean.
