Oil cleansing is the process of using oil (instead of soap or a cleanser) to dissolve and remove dirt on the skin.
To oil cleanse, you need a soft wash cloth and oil.
For normal to dry skin, try argan or shea oil.
For oily skin, use a little bit of tea tree or peppermint oil with castor oil.
You can even use extra virgin olive oil.
Oil cleansing can work on all skin types — even acne-prone skin.
The best part: Oil counts as a facial cleanser and a makeup remover all-in-one.
And if you want to ease into oil cleansing without going full-oil, look for a product that contains some soap.
You might not need a moisturizer if you’re oil cleansing.
Either way, don’t be afraid to give it a try.
