Herbal Infusion Oil and How to Use It
There are two ways to oil cleanse, water based oil cleansing or dry oil cleansing. The Water Based Oil Cleansing method uses a washcloth and water to help pull impurities from the skin using the physical motion of the washcloth. With this method, you run a washcloth under warm water press the washcloth to the face to allow the steam to open the pores and then wipe away the excess oil. This method is usually repeated to ensure all the skin is left fresh and clean, perfect for oily combination skin types.
The Dry Oil Cleansing method relies on the plant oils and herbs to bind to the impurities and pull dirt and excess sebum to the surface of the skin which then get wiped away using a dry washcloth. This method leaves the skin hydrated and clean, perfect for combination to dry skin types or if you are feeling the harsh drying effects of winter.
Make up remover
Massage 3-4 pumps into the skin before removing with either a dry or damp washcloth. You can follow your normal cleansing routine or complete a second cleanse using the Herbal Infusion Oil.
