Has it ever happened to you that after you wash your face, you still notice orange streaks of foundation on your towel? If you are relying only on a water based cleanser, you may not be completely removing all the makeup, dirt and sweat from the day.
In case you are not familiar with the concept, double cleansing is a procedure that involves washing your face twice: once with an oil-based cleanser and then again with a water-based cleanser. If you have oily skin, the idea of using more oil on your skin may terrify you, but an oil cleanser is the most effective way to dissolve oil.
Let’s do a little experiment; take a glass with water and add some oil. You will notice that the oil will stay on top of the water, because oil and water don’t mix. The same reaction occurs on the surface of the skin. Make-up, dirt and other irritants cannot be fully dissolved by a water-based cleanser. An oil cleanser on the other hand will dissolve all of these impurities because oil dissolves oil! Oil cleansers work by using specific, non-comedogenic oils found in nature to gently attract and break down excess sebum and impurities on the surface of the skin. The right oils don’t clog your pores or cause breakouts; they actually dissolve excess oil and gently cleanse the surface of the skin. Because they don’t completely strip the skin of sebum, they don’t cause dehydration so the skin won’t kick into action and over produce sebum.
If you have an oily skin type, whether from your skincare routine or from the environment, oily skin can actually be a sign that your skin is dehydrated. When the skin is stripped of moisture, your sebaceous glands are working hard to restore the protective barrier, so it over-produces sebum. The goal is to achieve balance so that your skin still experiences the benefits of sebum and naturally occurring good bacteria without the side effects of too-oily skin, so an oil cleanser is actually ideal for your skin type. It will not only remove the excess oil, but it will also dissolve the impurities deep in your pores resulting in less black heads. However, you still need to carefully select the right oil to be effective.
