Despite what their name might imply, face oils won’t leave your face oily or cause breakouts.
For some, an oil cleansing regime sounds contrary, putting more oil on your skin to clean the skin. However, this ancient ritual is now being realised for its natural and beautifying benefits compared to the drying and irritating creams and chemically made liquids. Researchers are realizing the incredible benefits of oils for the skin, their soothing, healing ingredients that have been used for hundreds of years are seeing a resurgence in popularity.
Face oil has been used by indigenous people all over the world in various forms for thousands of years, nothing lasts that long unless it works. The basic idea behind slathering your face in oils in the name of cleaning is that “like dissolves like.” Putting clean, nourishing oils on your skin lifts excess sebum, cleans out clogged pores like blackheads and whiteheads and removes dead skin, pollutants and makeup. Using oils instead of traditional soap or detergent cleansers helps protect the natural lipid layer of the skin and the good bacteria that live there instead of stripping it dry.
Traditional cleansers can irritate the skin, cause excessive dryness, exacerbate acne and ultimately result in the skin overproducing oil after washing. Oil cleansing, on the other hand, can help balance the skin and lock in hydration along with plumping the skin with polyphenols, fatty acids, and antioxidants, to help reduce inflammation and give skin a dewy glow.
Facial cleansing wipes leave ingredients on your skin such as surfactants, solubilizers, emulsifiers, alcohol and preservatives, which, can lead to irritation or an allergic reaction, also alcohol can either cause irritation or dryness.
Unlike makeup remover products on the market, Be Oil’d makeup remover will work with the skin to cleans and purify, without using any chemicals, alcohol or water. I created this mixture, in particular, to remove eye makeup easily and gently, as I found that products available just did not work, I needed to keep reapplying many times and rubbing the sensitive, delicate skin around the eyes which of course, in turn creates saggy, wrinkly eyes. Be Oil’d is so gentle that not only is the makeup removed gently but the delicate skin around the eyes is nourished and protected.
