Have you ever read the ingredient list on a bottle of store-bought facial cleanser? Yikes! All those chemicals, sulfates, and preservatives are not only bad for your health, they can also be quite irritating to your skin. Turns out there’s a better way to wash your face, no chemicals involved, and it doesn’t involve buying any obscure or expensive products. That better way is oil cleansing. Sure, it might seem counterintuitive to cover your face in oil, but trust me. Once you give it a try, and see the glowing skin it reveals, you’ll wish you’d discovered it sooner.
How Oil Cleansing Works
Oil cleansing works because of the principle that “like attracts like.” You wash your face with plant oils, which then stick to the oils in your skin (sebum) and dirt. When you rinse away the plant oils, all that excess sebum and dirt rinses right away with it, and you’re left with a clean, clear complexion. Plus, your skin will be more nourished because the plant oils leave behind omega-3 fatty acids that keep your skin soft, elastic, and hydrated.
