Cleanse with oil. Really!
It may seem a living contradiction, but cleansing your face with oil is the most gentle and effective way to remove dirt and protect against impurities. Your skin naturally produces oil because it needs it. It is there for the benefit of your skin - not only does your natural oil help lubricate, but it also heals, protects, and moisturizes your skin so that it may function properly. Properly functioning skin is beautiful, clear, and glowing.
Learning to work with your skin, not against it, will benefit you greatly. Fact: Oil dissolves oil. One of the most basic principles of chemistry is that “like dissolves like.” The best way to dissolve a non-polar solvent like sebum/oil is by using another non-polar solvent similar in composition: Other oils. By using the right oils, you can cleanse your pores of dirt and bacteria naturally, gently and effectively, while replacing the dirty oil with beneficial ones extracted from natural botanicals, vegetables, and fruit that heal, protect and nourish your skin. When done properly and consistently, using an oil-based cleanser can clear the skin from issues like oily skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, blackheads, whiteheads and other problems caused by mild to moderate acne–while leaving your skin healthy, balanced and properly moisturized.
