Cleansing is an important part of our daily skincare routine. If you have very problematic acne prone skin, you need to try out oil cleansing! You have oily skin does not mean you stay away from oils! In fact, oils moisturize your skin and prevent fine lines from appearing early. An array of cleansers is available in the market, but they often leave your skin dry which can lead to early wrinkles.
HOW TO DO OIL CLEANSING?
Step 1: Take some oil (individual or blends) and apply it onto your face. Massage for few minutes in circular motions. This will break down all the sebum, dirt, makeup etc.
Step 2: If you have a steamer, take that. If not, boil some water in a vessel and using a towel to cover your face, use it to steam your face for approx. 10 minutes.
Step 3: Grab a clean soft washcloth and gently massage your face wiping off the oil. Take another washcloth and clean the excess.
Step 4: Wipe your face with a dry cloth if you wish after sprinkling some water on face and you are done!
