This is a really good post about oil cleansing by Jillee of One Good Thing. There’s an explanation of the process, resources, and recipes for an oil mixture based on your skin type.
Oil cleansing is using a mixture of oils to wash your face. It seems counterintuitive but it’s not. Here’s Jillee’s explanation:
“Your skin NATURALLY produces oil for a reason. Oil helps lubricate, heal, protect, and moisturize your skin. Contrary to popular belief (and contrary to what the makers of acne products want you to believe), OIL does not cause acne. Hormones, bacteria, and dirt are to blame for that. So all these products we buy to get rid of the oil…cause our body to compensate by producing MORE oil. Oil that then pools up on skin that is already irritated and inflamed from the chemicals and fragrances in the soaps we are using…no WONDER breakouts occur! It’s a vicious cycle I tell ya!
So when you think about it…replacing the dirty oil on our faces with good quality oil is the perfect solution to so many of our skin problems…including acne.”
