Who knew that your favorite beauty product could be located in the kitchen?
Yes, oil as a face wash. While this seems counter-intuitive, oil will not cause your face to be greasy. On the contrary, healthy oils will dissolve the dirty oils that collect on your face, leaving you with clean, clear and moisturized skin naturally.
Olive Oil Face Wash
You may be wondering how oil on your face will leave you with glowing, smooth skin. The concept here is backed by chemical processes but uses no chemicals. Oil dissolves oil, "like dissolves like."
From The Oil Cleansing Method:
"The basic concept of this skin care and cleansing method is that the oil used to massage your skin will dissolve the oil that has hardened with impurities and found itself stuck in your pores. The steam will open your pores, allowing the oil to be easily removed. Should you need it, the smallest drop of the same oil formula patted over damp skin will provide the necessary lubrication to keep your skin from over-compensating in oil production."
Many people have touched on this subject before. Tsh’s how-to post on washing your face with oil is very informative, and you can also find helpful tips on The Oil Cleansing Method.
