I’ve been using the oil cleansing method for about a year after starting to see @alyssa.oodelahskin. If you are unfamiliar with oil cleansing, it operates on the premise that like dissolves like - and the oil cleanser dissolves dirt and sebum to be wiped away with a gentle cloth. I’ve always struggled with my skin - my cheeks get dry as sandpaper, my lower face gets broken out, and the pipes on my nose and around my mouth get easily congested. Any cleanser I found that worked on one area of my face, wreaked havoc on the others. I’m the captain of combination skin over here. Over time I’ve tweaked the blend and the oil now contains:
Jojoba Oil: A liquid wax most similar to your skin’s sebum.
Argan Oil: It’s called ‘liquid gold’ for a reason. This oil has anti-inflammatory, conditioning, and firming properties.
Lavender: Soothing and regenerative.
Geranium: Anti-inflammatory and just smells divine.
Vitamin E: Natural anti-oxidant.
