Cleansing my face with oils, what a wonderful idea. But what are cleansing oils?

Cleansing oils is a really effective cleanser which helps not only to remove the makeup on your face but also to treat specific problems.

The most common oils to be used in are grape seed oil, almond oil, coconut oil, mineral oil, apricot oil, rice bran oil, jojoba oil and olive oil. I am not going to go in too deep but all oils have different benefits for the skin and works towards specific concerns. But that will have to be a completely different post.

Do I really need a cleanser?

Do I really need to cleanse and what happens If I don’t?
Your dead skin cells will basically start building up creating a hard surface on your skin and it will feel ruff and uneven. The skin wont absorbs any moisture, due to that everything is clogged up. This is also what happened to my skin (read my skin story), not that I didn’t wash, but that my skin was so dry and I didn’t know how much I really needed to exfoliate (just because of my dry skin). So everything I put on just stayed on top. Nothing would penetrate my dry surface.

The double cleansing method

Basically it is as it sounds, cleansing twice. This is a great way of getting you face really clean.

How many are using, one cleanser, and then a toner on a cotton pad. Then you look at the cotton pad, is it clean? No, most often it is not. What people, including me (before Korean skincare was all on my brain) did, was using toner as your last step. Korean toners are so much more than that and should not be used as a last cleansing of the residue step. You can read about Korean toners here
