Cleansing Oils work for just about every skin type, dry to oily, young or old. No matter what skin type we have we all secrete oils. Cleansing oils work due to the theory that like attracts like. Cleansing oils essentially attract the dirty oil that lies in your pores and replaces it with clean, nourishing oils.
You might worry that you already have oily skin and this will just make things worse. Luckily, you’d be wrong. It’s actually worse for oily skinned lads and lasses to use a foam or harsh oil-free cleanser as this will cause your body to produce excess oil to replenish the skin (the skin naturally likes oil) just like washing your hair everyday actually causes it to get oilier faster.
Cleansing oils are super easy to use. Pump a few drops into your dry hands and apply to a dry face, massage and you’ll notice it immediately break down the toughest of makeup. Wash off with warm water and a towel or for those of us that are frightened of water after 1am and a few too many cocktails, a good makeup wipe.
Now that we know how and why they work, here are our favourites of the moment!
