Now every woman to cleanse the skin of the face of a variety of means: foams, gels, soaps, lotions. There are a variety of scrubs and exfoliants, even a dry cleaning method. A recently popular way of cleansing oil. Why is oil - the winners of the rating of the best products for skin cleansing?
I will try to objectively consider all the "pros" and "cons" oily skin cleansing, because much she tried.
I go to the bathroom ... and do not include the tap water. Instead, I spread on the face of a thick layer of oil, gently massage the skin, and then I need water. But not to rinse the face under the tap. I moisten the sponge in warm water and gently removes excess oil from the face.
It's unusual. Especially the first time. Especially if you, like me, hard to wake up in the morning, and only the jet of ice water can you cheer. But after you get used to. After all, the result of something you enjoy. We get a clear skin and for all get rid of these unpleasant sensations when washing as dryness and tightness.
Why does it work?
It is obvious that our skin is constantly allocates oil. Even very dry skin is still not devoid of sebum or oil on the surface. He washed with water, we make a big mistake, because the oils and fats do not dissolve in water. If affect butter oil, it dissolve and remove much easier.
Washing with water (foams and gels) actually has a number of "cons." Firstly, all foaming agents found in the composition of aggressive chemicals. Second, wash with water does not remove sebum contaminate entirely, but only partially, and as a result - clogged pores, black specks, irritations.
Which oil is suitable?
Versatility is castor oil. It is suitable for all skin types. Furthermore, it has antibacterial properties. But some women say that castor oil is not always effective, sometimes it does not relieve the dryness. Therefore it is necessary to make an individual composition with the addition of other oils, depending on the needs of your skin.
Quick tip, which oils can be used:
- Jojoba oil, it is suitable for all skin types and is particularly desirable for skin prone to acne;
- Sweet almond oil, suitable for all skin types, especially for oily;
- Grape seed oil, suitable for all skin types, especially for oily;
- Avocado for dry and aging skin;
- Sunflower seed oil for all skin types;
- Olive oil for all skin types;
- Apricot kernel oil, for dry, aging skin and for normal skin;
- Argan oil for all skin types, especially for aging.
Argan oil is listed among the most expensive. I do not recommend coconut oil, as it is comedogenic, clog pores and aggravate acne, which is why I did not include it in the list.
In what proportions to mix?
Before answering this question, I note that the cook mixture for washing can be preset. This is a definite plus method, the oil generally stored for a long time. Therefore, the proportion may like to mix in a separate bottle and store. Although I do not, I confess. I mix just before washing.
And now the main recipe (remember, the foundation has always castor oil)
- For oily skin:
2/3 castor oil + 1/3 of the supplementary oil (e.g., jojoba oil, almond, grape, olive), or by washing before each mix 2 tablespoons of castor oil and 1 teaspoon of additional oil.
- For normal skin:
Castor oil and further in a proportion of 1: 1. (enough for one wash of 1, 5 teaspoons of castor + 1 teaspoon extra 5).
- For dry skin:
1/3 castor oil and 2/3 of the supplementary oil (e.g., avocado), or 2 teaspoons of additional oil and 1 teaspoon of castor oil for one washing.
Naturally, over time, you will be necessary to mix oil to the eye. My favorite mixture for washing is as follows: 1 teaspoon of castor oil, 1 teaspoon of avocado oil and 1 teaspoon of jojoba oil. This, as you know, for dry skin.
Cleansing oil. Step-by-step instruction
So you've decided to try it. It is necessary to remember the simple steps. Their three.
Mix the oil in selected proportions (if you have not done this in advance in a separate bottle). Prepare a clean cloth, it is necessary, when suddenly the habit you apply too much oil and it begins to drain. Turn on warm water, lightly spray the face, it is necessary that the skin is slightly warmed. Makeup can not pre-clean, it will wash off with oil washing.
Pour the oil into the palm of your hand, apply on face. Gently massage, moving from the bottom up. Massage should last 2 minutes, then leave the oil on the face for about 30 seconds.
3. to rinse the face.
Open the hot water tap. Water must be hotter than you normally use for washing. But, of course, does not burn. You will need a sponge, wetting it in hot water. First, we are putting a warm washcloth to his face and hold for 10-15 seconds, warming the skin. Then gradually begin to remove oil from the face with a sponge. Always wash a sponge, taking a new running water. Ends when all the oil from the skin retracts.
Your skin is now cleared!
How often can I clean the skin with oil?
The frequency with which you will use clarified butter depends on you. Some do it every night. I do not have a devotion to this method, I use the washing oil 2-3 times a week. But this method is very grateful because it taught me to opt out of foam products containing sulfates or sulfides. I immediately felt the skin became more radiant and alive, without losing their own layer of skin oil.
