The thought of applying oil to your face may sound crazy, especially after years of listening to how oil-free products are best for the skin. However, in recent studies, many dermatologists have uncovered that using an oil-based cleanser or face wash is a great step in your regimen. We have compiled a list of all the reasons why you should use an oil cleanser face wash.
Reason 1 - Hydrating Properties
According to many top dermatologists, oil based cleansers can be more hydrating than a typical face wash. Oil cleansers do not contain any surfactants. These surfactants can be harsh on your skin and leave it extra dry. Whereas oil based cleansers have hydrating and soothing ingredients that leave your skin soft and less irritated than a traditional face wash.
Reason 2 - No More Greasiness
As unbelievable as it sounds, oil based cleansers do not leave any extra greasiness or oil on your skin. Since oil absorbs excess oil, it effectively removes all dirt from your skin and leaves it bare. However, oil cleansers may not suit everyone – they may cause acne or clogged pores for some people. In that case, you should ask your dermatologist to recommend an oil cleanser that will suit your skin.
Reason 3 - Made for Every Skin Type
Before just purchasing any oil cleanser, you should make sure to check out the label, see what skin type it suits the most and the ingredients it contains.
If you have oily and acne-prone skin, go for an oil cleanser that contains grape seed, argan, lavender, or coconut oils. However, if you have dry skin, you should be looking for ingredients such as avocado, jojoba, or sunflower oil. We would recommend trying our Vitamin Elixir Cleansing Oil by Confident Beaute.
