During the winter months, it can be a bit harder to keep your skin hydrated, so I wanted to share something that could be your "first line of defense."
The Oil Cleansing Method.
While the Oil Cleansing Method has enjoyed a spike in popularity over the past few years, you may be surprised to learn that women have been using it for centuries! (As I have mentioned before, Cleopatra’s use of oils for cleansing and beauty is quite famous!)
That sounds great, but I don’t want oily skin.”
I get it! Some of us still remember teen breakouts, so anything that has the word “oil” in it has you running for the hills. But the beauty of the Oil Cleansing Method is that with high quality ingredients, “oil dissolves oil.”
Yes–You can dissolve the excess oils in your skin with these high quality ingredients.
Traditional face washes, like soap and foaming cleansers, can strip the skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and irritated. Oil Cleansing, though, is gentle and effective in removing impurities without stripping the skin of its natural oils.
The skin’s sebaceous glands produce sebum, which helps to keep the skin moisturized. The Oil Cleansing Method can help to regulate the skin’s sebum production so that your skin is moisturized.
With the Oil Cleansing Method, you can balance the skin’s natural oil production to retain your skin’s natural moisture, so that your skin stays and appears hydrated.
One last thing that you may not know–the Oil Cleansing Method strengthens the skin's barrier function. See-the skin's lipid barrier is responsible for maintaining the skin's moisture balance and protecting it against environmental stressors.
Oil cleansing can help to strengthen the skin's barrier function by providing it with the necessary lipids and oils to repair and nourish the skin.
