Presenting the superhero of all facial cleansers, cleansing oils! Yes, you heard it right! Cleansing oils have been a skincare staple in Asia for a long time and are now becoming popular all across the globe. They are the most effective way to remove impurities and are suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin. These one-step cleansers work on a unique emulsifying technology where the oil turns into a milky cleanser as soon as it comes in contact with water.
But how do they work?
The oil and the cleanser bind with the skin’s natural oils and gently remove all impurities while maintaining the inherent moisture balance of the skin. The light-textured oil smoothly spreads and instantly blends into the skin, dissolving all oil-based makeup. When it comes in contact with water, the magic of emulsification starts and it turns into a milky liquid.
And how should you use them?
Start with dry hands and face and take a good amount of cleansing oil in your hands. Gently rub and warm the oil in your palms. Apply it onto your face. Once you’ve rubbed the oil into your skin, just add a little bit of water and continue massaging. Use lukewarm water to rinse your face and gently dab it dry with a towel.
