A common myth about using an oil cleanser is that it is not as effective as an alcohol based or cream cleanser. The opposite is actually true, high quality oil cleansers are far superior for these reasons:
- Most cream and foaming cleansers contain parabens, fragrances, dyes and alcohol etc that are used to strip away dirt. These cleansers remove dirt but they also strip away your skins delicate oil balance, which contributes to premature ageing through the dehydrating effects on your skin.
- Our skin is porous, so there is no buffer to prevent chemical toxins in some cleaners penetrating the skin and ending up in the bloodstream.
- Your skin naturally produces oil because it needs it. Oil is not the enemy to be eradicated. Oil is there to protect and lubricate the skin, allowing your body’s largest organ to function properly.
- Your skin will regain its natural oil balance, it may take a few days but you’ll notice huge improvements as blemishes and signs of irritation and redness start to disappear.
