Women's Skincare Cleansing Oil

 Beautiful clear skin is always a goal for every woman. We will go any length to  get it.  There are tons of products on the market including cleansers, moisturizers, toners, ointments,...etc.  There has been a huge curiosity around cleansing oils/the oil cleansing method, and it seems to be pretty good for people with all skin types.  

To start, you can either make a cleansing oil yourself by using good old castor oil and sunflower seed oil or olive oil, or you can buy one that is already made.  If you choose to buy one, MAC cosmetics, Shu Uemura, Lumene, L'Occitane, and several other drugstore and department store brands carry them.  You simply squeeze some out of the bottle, rub it on your face, and rinse.  In some of the formulations the cleanse off oil is designed to emulsify when it comes into contact with water, and those formulations are easy to rinse off.  

The science behind using oil to cleanse the skin is the "like dissolving like" factor.  When you use an emollient oil to absorb and wash off oil that your skin creates, it works.  Since the oils that you use to cleanse the skin have natural sources of vitamin E, fatty acids, and other antioxidants they provide for a good treatment.
