What is the oil cleansing method?
Exactly what it sounds like: a means of cleansing the skin with oil. It's an amazing way to clean your face for healthy, beautiful, and glowing skin. Once you start... We know you'll be hooked!
Wait what? Fight oil with oil... Are you for real? Yes 100%! It may sound a little strange at first but oil actually dissolves oil! Using an oil to wash your face allows you to get a gentle yet very effective deep clean. The oil gets into your pores and helps dissolve hard sebum plugs that are stuck in your pores along with all of the grit and grime, allowing you to wipe it away with a steamy (but not too hot!) washcloth.
How does it work?
The Oil Cleansing Method uses pure, organic, cold-pressed oils to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize your skin. It soothes skin, deep cleans your pores, removes makeup, helps eliminate acne, fade scarring, and prevents aging.
It might seem unusual to use oil as a skincare solution, especially if you have oily skin, but it is extremely effective. It’s also 100% NATURAL so there are no chemicals, parabens, preservatives, or other ingredients that are potentially damaging to skin.

Here are some amazing benefits from Oil Cleansing
Hydrates and moisturizes the skin:
The oils will keep your skin hydrated and nourished long after you have done the oil cleansing. It is recommended to perform the cleansing at night so that your skin receives hydration all night long.
Oil binds with dirt to remove it from your pores so its great for cleansing your skin of impurities such as built up dirt and bacteria.
Oil cleansing not just helps to remove traces of dirt, but also helps to balance oil production. When the sebum production is regulated, acne is under control.
Natural & Non-Toxic:
Unlike many over the counter products which are filled with harmful toxins, plant based oils are a one ingredient product from the earth, so you know that your not putting any nasties on your body.
Effective Make-up remover:
Oil cleansing is wonderful for removing make-up. An oil will not just clean your skin but also nourish it.

Ready to get started?
Here's what you'll need:
- A clean face towel
- Your oil blend
- Warm water
1. Apply a few drops of oil to the face. Use circular motions over your eyes and around your eye area to remove eye makeup. Continue to massage gently around your face to boost the circulation and remove all traces of make-up, dirt and grime.
2. Soak your washcloth in hot water and squeeze excess water out. The water should be hot but not hot enough to burn your skin.
3. Steam your face by holding the washcloth on top of your face and gently pressing for 5-10 seconds.
4. Now, wipe your skin to remove the oils. You may need to do this a couple of times to ensure the oil has been completely wiped off the face and neck. Warm water helps to soften the pores and remove the oils. The texture of your washcloth will naturally exfoliate your face.
5. Dry face by patting with cotton towel.
6. Woohoo! You have officially oil cleansed. Enjoy beautiful, radiant, ageless skin!!!!!!
The oil cleansing method is suitable for all skin types. You should start to see results in 7 days, however some skin types can take a little bit longer. Once your skin gets used to the oils, it will leave your skin hydrated and nourished.
How often should you Oil Cleanse?
Dry and oily skin may benefit from oil cleansing regularly each night, while sensitive skin may only need to be cleansed once every few days.
While you can oil cleanse in the morning or evening, oil cleansing before you go to bed is most beneficial to remove impurities from makeup and the environment.
