Confession: I haven’t used a commercial face cleanser in over two years. I just use oil to clean my face. Yes, oil. I always had oily skin growing up, so I thought that meant that I had to dry my skin out to make it clean and clear like I wanted. This obviously didn’t work and often made my skin worse. It wasn’t until I was an adult that I realized that maybe my skin was producing so much oil because it needed more oil. So I started putting more oil on my face and guess what–my skin has never been more even in my life. Even with all of the oil I put on my face to moisturize and clean it, my face is NOT oily. I recently did a Facebook event on Beauty with Essential oils and showed everyone how I clean my face with oil. The replay is here:
If you haven’t tried oil cleansing do it now!! It is SO easy to make and you will not believe how much dirt comes off of your face:
You guys, that was a brand new towel–and that was all of the dirt on my face.
DIY Oil Cleanser Recipe:
I like to keep my recipe simple and sweet, but you can add any of these essential oils that are good for your skin. I add 50 drops of lavender essential oil to a 4 oz bottle, then fill the bottle with sweet almond oil. BTW this is how you can get 25% off essential oils. I use this to clean my face and as a natural makeup remover. I cleanse my face one of two ways: like the video above after I’ve done something gross outside (like gardening/sweating/mowing the lawn/cleaning the chicken coop), or by putting it on my face before jumping in the shower.
Try it and let me know what you think!
