Many facial cleansers contain ingredients that can dry and irritate skin, making them too harsh for delicate, sensitive or acne-prone skin. Selecting the best cleanser may be easier than you think. Surprisingly, many plant-based oils offer a simple yet effective way to cleanse while hydrating and nourishing skin.
The antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of Olive, Almond, Castor and Coconut oils make them a perfect choice to naturally balance skin pH, repair dry, flaky skin and restore a radiant, healthy glow. Nutrient-rich and deeply moisturizing, these oils bind to impurities and dissolve them without drying the skin. Not only do they lubricate skin, they also protect and renew skin health.
Blending in a drop or 2 of your favorite essential oil, like Tea Tree, Lavender, Peppermint or Rosewater Blend, can add another dimension to your facial cleansing oil formula. These essential oils have astringent and antibacterial properties that work to minimize excess sebum, reduce redness and balance skin tone.
Here are some suggestions for formulating your own combination of oils for a personalized facial cleanser. These ratios may be adjusted depending upon your skin type. Typically, if you have dry skin, prepare a formula of 1/3 Castor Oil to 2/3 Almond or Olive oils. If your skin is Oily, use a ratio of 2/3 Castor Oil to 1/3 Almond or Olive Oil. Add a drop or 2 of essential oil and watch your complexion glow.
How to use your Personalized Facial Skin Cleanser:
- Mix your oils together thoroughly.
- Pour a small amount of the oil mixture to fill the palm of your hand.
- Rub hands together then rub into face, making sure to massage for a few minutes, allowing the mixture to penetrate the pores.
- Dampen a washcloth with hot water, making sure to ring out excess water.
- Place dampened, warmed cloth over your face. This will cause a steaming effect. Let the warmed cloth lay over the face for several minutes.
- After several minutes, use the same cloth to wipe off the excess oil.
- Pat face with a dry cloth and voila!
Clean, nourish and moisturize at the same time! Pampering your skin with these organic and cold-pressed oils will keep your skin looking radiantly ageless. Create the special formula that works for you.
