The Oil Cleansing method - and why it's superior
by Herb Essntls
A year ago
Oil cleansing has gained a lot of traction in recent years, but it is actually an ancient method used since before soap was invented. It's a more gentle, and in many ways more effective, way of cleaning your skin—especially your face. Our ancestors seem to have been onto something important.
So how does it work?
By thoroughly massaging the oil onto damp skin it works almost like an “oil change” for your face. The Cleansing Oil dissolves dirt, make-up, and naturally produced oils that are now polluted with everything your face has been exposed to during the day.
When you rinse and/or wipe off the oil the dirt washes and wipes away with it. Leaving behind a moisturized and clean face. The Herb Essntls Cleansing Oil also helps your skin balance its own oil production so that it stays protected and hydrated without creating any excess oil.
What’s the difference compared to soap or standard cleansers?
If you use soap, or a cleanser with surfactants, they strip your skin of natural oils, leaving it unbalanced and unprotected. This can lead to breakouts or over-production of your skin’s natural oils to “catch up”.
