Washing your face with oil? What?
"If washing your face with oil sounds crazy to you, don't worry-you are not alone. The commercial beauty industry has put a lot of effort into making oil sound like the enemy. Oil-free cleansers and moisturizers are extremely popular as a result.
Considering that soap-based cleansers are meant to remove oil from your skin, adding oil to get your face clean seems totally counter intuitive. Despite how wacky this concept may sound at first, the oil-cleansing method actually works really well for most people!
The method is founded on the concept that like removes like. Soap and detergents can scour the surface of your skin, removing every last drop of moisture (including the good stuff) but they have a hard time reaching beneath the surface, into your skin's pores, where excess sebum and bacteria can build up. Those clogged pores can result in acne, redness, uneven skin texture, or even infections. Oil, on the other hand, can dissolve the sebum in those backed up pores, keeping them healthy and clean.
Of course, you can't use just any oil with this method. Castor oil, a thick and gooey carrier oil, acts as the base for all oil-cleansing. This super-greasy and sticky oil does a great job of grabbing on to excess dirt and oil-maybe too great of a job. Castor oil's intensity is mellowed out by being blended with light, moisturizing carrier oils, such as rosehip seed oil, watermelon oil, jojoba oil, or avocado oil. You can customize your oil cleanser by choosing a carrier that suits your skin type, and by adjusting the ratio of castor oil in the blend.
It's important to note that though this cleanser is made entirely of oil, in some cases it can leave the skin feeling quite dry. Other users find that their skin remains perfectly moisturized after oil cleansing. I always recommend following any cleanser with a toner. Toners help balance the skin's pH and remove any leftover residue the cleanser may leave behind. Using a moisturizer is totally optional-especially with the oil cleanser on a daily basis. Unless you wear makeup, using the cleanser two or three times per week is often more than enough. On off days, simply rinse your face with warm water."
