The Oil Cleansing Method is a way of cleansing the skin using oils and massage. Oil to cleanse the skin? It sounds counter-intuitive, but oils can dissolve hardened oil that can get stuck in your pores and help remove other impurities such as built-up dirt, sweat and makeup. The massage part helps the oil get deeper in your pores to do its work, and who doesn’t love a good massage?
This can be particularly helpful to those suffering from blemishes or removing heavy makeup and/or sunscreen. MooGoo made this using a mixture of drawing and moisturising oils. The drawing oils help pull out and dissolve old oils, and the moisturising oils, such as Jojoba Oil, are high in antioxidants and help keep skin hydrated and soft. This means you can cleanse and moisturise your skin at the same time! How’s that for multi-tasking?
Cleansing with oil is particularly beneficial because it doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils, which can ultimately lead to an overproduction of more oil and lead to further breakouts.
