Do you realize that washing your face is one of the most important rituals you can have? I know I’m all too guilty to arrive home late in the evening and not successfully remove all of my makeup. As much as we try to minimize the oil we put on our face, you may be surprised to hear about the OIL CLEANSING METHOD. Oil actually helps to lubricate, heal, moisturize and protect your skin. Contrary to popular belief oil does not cause acne. Bacteria, dirt and hormones are the main culprits.
Many times we splurge on all these expensive facial products that strip the oil from our skin, thinking we are doing the right thing. This often times causes our body to produce more oil. And this over production causes our pores to get clogged and trapped with dirt and bacteria.
So here is some information that I have learned about this particular skin care and cleansing method. The basic concept is that the oil used to massage your skin will dissolve the oil that had hardened with impurities and are now trapped in your pores. The steam will open your pores and allow the oil to be easily removed.
Oils like Castor, Jojoba, Grapeseed, Evening Prim-Rose and Avocado Oil have so many wonderful benefits for your skin.
I must admit that I am intrigued by all the research I’ve been doing about skin care these days and I have to say I’m truly excited about all that I’m learning.
Here’s to sharing more after I complete my skin care course.
Now go treat the skin you’re in!
