How to oil cleanse

Natural oils are the best option for oil cleansing. Almond oil, olive oil, avocado oil, carrot, and coconut oil are most popularly used. However endeavor to use the cold-pressed variety, without perfumes or flavours. Lots of people prefer to use a combination of two oils in equal ratio.


To apply, pour your oils on the palm while standing over a sink and massage in circular motions on your face. Note that your skin has to be dry before you begin. Do this for two minutes. Also, make sure not to massage too hard. You can leave the oils on your face for up to ten minutes to deeply clean out the pores.


Thereafter, wash your face with a wet washcloth dipped in warm water ( preferably) to completely clean out the excess oils and dirt.


Oil cleansing can be added to your daily beauty routine for best results.
