The Benefits Of Oil Cleansers
Oil cleansing is a natural way to purify, balance and hydrate the skin. Switching to an oil cleanser could be the most effective, yet simple, step you take in your skincare routine to rescue your skin from the toxic spiral of synthetic products, and restore balance.
1. Oil Cleansing purifies your skin.
Oil is a great natural cleanser. A few drops of oil on a damp cloth act as a magnet, sweeping up excess sebum, dirt, make-up and residue from your day. In this way, oil cleansing gently purifies your skin, without the excessive drying effect of chemical or soap-based gel cleansers.
2. Oil Cleansing balances the oil levels of your skin.
Foaming or gel cleansers can strip the skin of its natural lipid-barrier, prompting the skin to produce more oil to make up the imbalance. So begins a cycle of oil depletion and over-production which is perpetually reinforced by the use of foaming cleansers. Instead, oil cleansing works synergistically with the skin to remove only the excess, replenishing your lipid-barrier and leaving your skin feeling hydrated and refreshed.
3. Oil Cleansing works synergistically with the microbiome to activate your skin’s self-replenishing system.
The microbiome are colonies of beneficial bacteria which live on and inside of our bodies. On our skin, the microbiome helps to keep the protective lipid-barrier intact, which in turn promotes the skin’s photo-protective, wound-healing and immunological properties. Applying chemical and soap-based cleansers is the equivalent of destroying this lush top-soil of bacteria! Oil cleansing offers a natural alternative which works with the microbiome to replenish and strengthen the health of our skin.
4. Oil Cleansing benefits both dry and oily skin.
Or are you a combination? Even better! Unlike the harsh effects of chemical or soap-based cleansers, which exacerbate the condition of excessively dry or acne-prone skin, oil cleansing works with, rather than against, your skin’s self-replenishing systems, returning it to a state of harmony. Not too oily, not too dry.
5. Oil Cleansing is environmentally friendly.
Sadly, some synthetic cleansers contain harsh chemicals and micro-beads that enter our waterways and bio-accumulate in our oceans and marine life. Oil is a natural and completely bio-degradable way to purify the skin. Oil was created by nature, for naturally healthy and glowing skin.
