The thought of using oils to cleanse the face may sound crazy to some, but did you know that certain oils contain skin-nourishing vitamins and minerals that help to purify and hydrate the skin?
Achieving clear skin always starts with a clean, healthy face. How do you maintain a healthy face, you may ask? Well, it’s simple – balance! When your skin is in its natural pH level, this is where your skin is most healthy at its core. In case you are wondering, the skin’s ideal pH level is 5.5, which is slightly acidic.
On top of all the benefits of using a cleansing oil, it’s also good to know that cleansing oils can also balance the skin’s pH levels. This is because cleansing oils work particularly well with the skin’s natural oil secretions. Another reason why oils are preferred is also due to the fact that as we age, the amount of oil or sebum naturally produced by our skin decreases, therefore we need oils to protect and rebuild the skin’s barrier.
Step 1: Apply a dime-sized amount of cleansing oil to your hands and rub your hands together to warm the oil before smoothing it over your dry face.
Step 2: Massage over face and eye contour areas using your fingertips for 45 to 60 seconds. This will dissolve sunscreen, makeup, dirt and other impurities from the face.
Step 3: Rinse your face thoroughly with lukewarm water or use a clean washcloth and soak it in warm water.
Step 4: Hold the washcloth over your face and allow the warmth to soften the pores. Wipe the oil gently away, and avoid any temptation to scrub the skin as you wipe the oil across your face.
Step 4: After the oil is completely removed from your face, follow with HYSSES Facial Wash for optimum results.
The recommended frequency is once a day in the evening. An oil cleanse can remove all traces of dirt accumulated during the day, and it does provide a deep clean, thus more suitable for the end of the day. Oil cleansing in the morning is not necessary since our skin undergoes its own detoxification process when we sleep. For morning cleanse, a lightweight cleanser such as Micellar Cleansing Toner is sufficient.
