We all want dewy, glowing, trouble-free skin, but sometimes we need a little help getting there. In walks Blend #1. A beautiful concoction of light, diffusive, carrier oils designed to help soothe the beast that is the over-active nature of oily skin.
A protective combination of some of the most nourishing and balancing oils known to touch the skin with light emollience while helping to decrease sebum production and re-balance the skin.
Even the seemingly oiliest of oily skin needs a moisturizer in order to prevent rebound sebum production. Don't starve your skin - that just creates excess oil production and causes clogged pores.
Feed your skin and help it protect itself!
We love this blend for overly active, oil producing, combination and even shiny skin! Blend #1 absorbs quickly and cleanly to deliver the nutrients that your skin needs to stay healthy, moisturized and clean.
This oil can be used on damp, clean skin (we recommend after using your toner or Hydrosol), to moisturize and soothe. Just a few drops will spread and smooth over your skin beautifully, light blend that it is.
But what else can you do with it?
What's Oil Cleansing?
Essentially, oil cleansing is using oils to soften and break up oils already trapped in the pores and release it with steam, to easily rinse away and leave nothing but soft and supple skin behind.
Oil cleansing is specifically helpful for those suffering with acne and problem skin. Don't let the use of oils on your face scare you, there is something to this! Oils are notoriously hard to remove from skin with water and soap, so we end up using harsh chemicals to break up oils and try to flush them out. This dries out our skin and causes an over production of oil to compensate for the dryness, and only compacts an already hard-to-handle problem.
When you use oils on your face to cleanse, you are naturally softening the oils and impurities and dirt that are trapped in your skin, like an oil vacuum. Oil is attracted to other oils and is only broken down by other oils, so we use oils to pull oils and clear the pores.
It's like having a spa treatment in your own home and you can do it every night!
You do need a few things to begin oil cleansing:
See, that wasn't that hard, and you didn't have to scrub or add chemicals or soap to your face!
We recommend that this is done at night to clean the day away. This means you will wake with a clean face and no more than a quick rinse, or wipe with a damp warm towel is needed in the morning, as well as a refreshing spritz of Hydrosol or toner if you feel the need. As with any change in skin routine you will have an adjustment period, possibly even seeing a more active seeming skin pattern the first week of using this method, this will pass as your skin purges and clarifies itself. This is normal and will pass, so stick with it, it's worth it!!
