How do you take off your makeup? I just recently started using cleansing oils, and I regret not starting to use them sooner!
I used to rely heavily on the power of a makeup removing wipe. Which, I have come to find, leaves a lot of makeup left behind. Just ask my pillows!
Not to mention I was constantly tugging at my skin. My poor, delicate, eyelids. Hind site is 20/20, right? I never realized how much stress I’d put on my skin until I started using cleansing oils!
Now, before I get into the cleansing oils I use, let me remind you that I have super oily skin. Not to mention that at the time I made the switch, I was in the middle of an adult acne crisis.
I was at a cross roads.
I didn’t want to continue to take off my makeup with the removing wipes because it was leaving so much behind, and was constantly pulling on my skin. But I was also so hesitant to put oil on my oily, acne prone skin.
I figured the medicine the dermatologist gave me would clear my skin up from the inside out, so I might as well give the cleansing oils a go.
I started off with trying coconut oil as a makeup remover. My findings? It definitely worked, but I did find that it left my skin feeling a little greasy. I woke up with these tiny tiny little bumps on my head, so it was probably a little to “oily” for my skin type.
Then Dermalogica sent me a PR package with their Precleanse in it. OMG, this stuff is life changing.
How it works:
- First, with dry hands and face, pump one-two pumps of the cleansing oil in your hands.
- Next, you are going to massage the oil onto your face. You will see how the makeup just melts away. It’s super gentle on your skin, and eyes!
- Rinse your skin with warm water. The oil will turn milky and just wash right away.
After all of this, I like to follow the cleansing oils with a gentle face cleanser and my Clarisonic and really get any all dirt out of my pores!
