Cleansing Oils have arrived on the market with a bang. They are considered some of the best products in the industry to remove dirt, makeup and debris from the skin without causing irritation.
What you may not know however, is that cleansing oils are also brilliant at removing excess oil from the skin too. If you have oily skin, you may have stayed away from them due to their slippy properties, but trust us when we say you need to introduce them into your routine. They will help to balance out oil production by attracting and removing excess oil from your skin, and leave you with a flawless complexion.
For those of you that have normal/combination/dry/sensitive skin, cleansing oils work just as well too. They effectively help to lift off any impurities that sit on your skin and leave you with a cleansed face.
Double Cleansing With Your Favourite Cleansing Oil
While Cleansing Oils will lift off any dirt and makeup sitting on top of your skin, we always think it’s best to go in for a second cleanse with your favourite cleanser. This is where double cleansing comes in.
The idea behind double cleansing is that once you have removed the surface impurities and makeup, your cleanser can work much more effectively to really get deep into your pores and leave you with healthy skin, which can actually clean your skin without having to battle through makeup and dirt.
We have put together a simple guide to help you find the right cleansing products for your skin type.
There are now many products on the market which care for sensitive skin and leave it feeling healthy, soft and hydrated. Try and go for natural formulations without chemicals, as these will leave your skin feeling comfortable rather than irritated.
First Cleanse: The Caudalie Makeup Removing Cleansing Oil is a 100% natural formulation and contains Sweet Almond Oil to leave skin super soft and cleansed.
Second Cleanse: Pai’s Camellia and Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser has a creamy consistency that melts into the skin. You can either use the muslin cloth that comes with the cleanser, or for a deeper yet gentle clean, opt for the FOREO Luna for Ultra Sensitive Skin.
