Hey Ladies ..
Here I am with one more do it yourself beauty hack . I usually do face cleanup at home only.. rarely I got time to visit salon (poor me 🙁 ) . This time I am here with a facial cleansing DIY , a natural way to cleanse your skin .
What is Face Oil cleansing ?
The idea behind oil cleansing is to use natural oils in a specific combination to cleanse the skin gently. Basically the oil blend used to massage your skin will dissolve the oil that has hardened with impurities and found itself stuck in your pores.The steam will open your pores and remove those impurities.
What we need for face oil cleansing?
Well we need couple of things like a clean wash cloth , castor oil (5 drops) , pure almond oil or olive oil (10 drops) , Lavender essential oil (2-3 drops).
Castor oil is a thick viscous oil and well known for its antibacterial nature. Castor oil balances our sebaceous glands which produces sebum.
Almond and olive oil are great moisturiser . Lavender oil is known for its enormous benefits in skin care.Lavender essential oil has a calming scent which makes it an excellent tonic for the nerves and anxiety problems. lavender essential oil is one of the most beneficial oils in the curing acne.
I have used Soulflower Coldpressed Olive Carrier Oil , Aroma Treasures Pure Lavender Essential Oil ,Soulflower Coldpressed Olive Carrier Oil These are just for your references , you can get any of these oils from your local market as well. I recommend to look for oils that are cold pressed, organic and pure.
How to do Face oil cleansing ?
Mix all the above mentioned oil and take a good amount on your palm . Warm it up a little using your palms and massage gently over face for a minute. Boil a glass of water , soak the washcloth in it , wring it and place the soaked wash cloth on your face until temperature goes to normal . Repeat this 3-4 times and gently wipe your face with the wash cloth. Say hello to squeaky-clean clear, glowing, dewy-looking skin, free of blackheads, pimples, cysts!!
You can also use any face steamer ,steam your face for 2-3 minutes . My personal choice is doing it with wash cloth as I feel direct steam is not good for the skin.Oil cleansing is also beneficial for acne prone skin.
Imp Note : For oily skin increase ratio of castor oil and for dry skin increase the ratio of olive oil .
