Skin Care: DIY Oil Cleansing face wash
Using oil as a facial cleanser is the best way to remove dirt, make-up & sunscreen from your skin without vigorously scrubbing. Oil cleansing washes away all the unwanted grease & grime without stripping your skin of its natural oils. Not only is it an amazing cleanser it also nourishes your delicate skin due to its balancing effect. An added Bonus: It is more hydrating than most cleansers! Natural oil cleansing is easier for your skin to absorb, because of this it doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy or heavy. Now that you know a little bit about the benefits of oil cleansing, lets begin creating an oil cleanser customized just for you.
STEP #1: SELECT A BASE OIL
Sensitive Skin (use calming oils)
Camellia Seed Oil
Dry Skin (use heavier oils)
Grape Seed Oil
STEP #2: CUSTOMIZE WITH CARRIER OIL(S)
Astringent Oils= shrink appearance of pores, tighten skin, reduce inflammation, reduce acne:
Hemp seed oil
Nourishing Oils= light weight oil that fits all skin types. Absorbs quickly & locks in skins natural moisture:
Rose hip seed oil
STEP #3: CREATE YOUR CUSTOMIZED OIL BLEND
You Will Need:
1 tsp. Base Oil of your choice
3 tsp. Carrier Oil of your choice
Small Funnel (Click here for small funnel)
2 oz. glass bottle with treatment pump (Click here for 2oz amber glass bottle)
Once you have decided on your oils place the small funnel into your 2 oz. bottle and simply pour in your oils. Slowly roll to mix oils & voila! .. your personalized Cleansing oil has just been born!
Keep in mind: Every blend is going to work different for everyone. It's trial and error until you find what works best for your skin. If your skin feels too tight when using one of the astringent oils then use less astringent oil on your next blend. Astringent means that it has a drying effect. If your blend makes your skin feel too oily then add more astringent oil into your blend. It's all about finding a balance. Yin & Yang.
STEP # 4: BEGIN CLEANSING
