Contrary to common belief, oil cleansing is highly suited to all skin types including oily, acne-prone skin as this method helps to unblock pores, one of the main causes of acne.
Harsh cleansers may wash away dirt but while doing so, they also disturb the natural microbiome of the skin and remove too much of the skin’s natural sebum.
This sebum is there to protect the cell walls, fight bacteria, help heal wounds and prevents moisture from evaporating from the skin layers.
Each time we strip this oil away, our skin over compensates and frantically tries to replace the stripped away oil by creating more oil.
The Oil Cleansing Method operates on the premise that “like dissolves like”, oil dissolves oil.
‘Bad oils’ such as oxidized sebum, grime and other impurities are gently removed and the skin is refreshed with new oils enriched with nutrients, antioxidants and essential fatty acids.
