The oil cleansing method is a natural way to remove oils, dirt, and makeup from your face without stripping the skin of it’s natural oils.
Washing your face with soap and water can be drying, causing flaky skin and premature aging. Whether your skin is dry, normal or oily, there is a certain amount of oil on your skin. Using the oil cleansing method dissolves the oil on your face and carries away any dirt that you don’t want on your face to clog up your pores and replaces it with clean oil from the cleanser to re-nourish your skin. This is one of the best things I have ever done for my skin and I’ll never go back to soap and water!

How to Use the Oil Cleanser
- Start with a dry face and put a a generous amount of the oil mix into the palm of your hand then gently massage it into the skin on your face and neck.
- Once you have massaged the oil onto your face, get a wash cloth and run it under hot water in the faucet. Lay the cloth over your face as a bit of a steam treatment to let the olive oil soak into your skin.
- After a minute or so, use the cloth to wipe off the excess oil from your face.
That’s it! You’re face is clean. Some people feel they do not need any moisturizer after they do this cleansing method. Personally, since my skin tends to be dry I feel I do need a little moisturizer. My Renewing Facial Serum is the perfect moisturizer to use following the oil cleanser, it’s what I use myself.
