If you’ve never tried an oil cleanser before, now would be a good time. It’s a gentle way to remove makeup from your skin and it feels especially comforting after a day spent outdoors in the cold (or marinating next to a space heater on full blast).
If you’re wary about putting oil anywhere near your skin, consider this: Oil dissolves oil. By using the right oils to cleanse your skin (more on that later), you can effectively remove any makeup and dirt from your face while keeping your skin well-balanced and moisturized.
There are many different oil cleansers you can buy depending on your skin type and budget. (Mamonde Petal Spa Oil to Foam Cleanser is a longtime favorite because of the way it lathers nicely and rinses off clean). However, if you’re in the mood to concoct your own oil cleanser, we are happy to report that it is a fairly easy process. You just want to make sure you choose the best oils for your skin type.
