The oil cleansing method is fast becoming a popular way to clean your face however as many people still use soap and water and other traditional cleansing methods, we would like to explain the advantages of using this method and why it works so well on all skin types.
What is the Oil Cleansing Method?
This is when you use oil or balm like Ermana Cleanse Balm and hot cloth to clean your face.
Simply place hot cloth on face for approx. 20 seconds.
Massage oil to your skin and allow it to sit on skin for 30 seconds.
Remove the oil and dirt with the hot cloth to reveal clean and radiant complexion.
How does it work?
The Oil cleansing method works on the premise that “like dissolves like”. So when the cleansing oil is massaged into your skin, it dissolves the dirty oil on your face and removes impurities without clogging the pores. Then the hot cloth washes the impurities away leaving your skin clean, hydrated and nourished.
Can I use Oil cleansing on oily skin?
Yes. Many traditional cleansers use ingredients which can strip the skin of natural oils which leaves the skin unbalanced. The skin then works to rebalance itself and starts to reproduce more oil (sebum). If too much oil is produced then this can cause skin problems. Using oil to cleanse the skin helps to keep the skins natural pH balance and stops the over production of oil. Using botanical oils such as those used in Ermana Cleanse Balm can also help remove excess sebum so therefore will balance already oily skin.
