Have you ever heard of oil cleansing? Usually, when people think of “washing” their face after a long day, the norm involves some kind of soap and water. But oil cleansing takes on a different approach. Kind of like the adage of fighting fire with fire, oil cleansing uses oil to help remove excess sebum as well as any dirt and grime that your face has probably acquired throughout the day.
Not only is oil cleansing a gentle and natural way to clean your skin, but it also moisturizes at the same time. And, depending on the type of oil you use, your skin can receive different benefits, too. So it is much more customizable and can address your personal skincare goals and needs.
One of our favorite blends is this Rosehip Oil cleanser. Not only is rosehip oil jam packed with tons of great ingredients, such as retinoids which help treat and prevent acne, but it also does wonders at striping your skin clean (even from waterproof makeup!). It is easily absorbed, which means it won’t really clog up your pores either.
This rosehip oil cleanser is really easy to make. You basically need just two ingredients and it will only take a few minutes or so. Interested? Everything you need to know is right below:
Homemade Rosehip Oil Cleanser:
What You Need:
- Rosehip Oil
- Jojoba Oil
- Clean glass bottle
What To Do:
With this recipe, your ratio of Rosehip Oil to Jojoba Oil is 1:2. So basically, if you have 10 drops of Rosehip Seed Oil, mix in 20 drops of Jojoba Oil into your clean glass bottle. You can go ahead just use the droppers from each of your oils.
Note: Never dip the same dropper into different oil bottles. You want to keep your oils pure and clean.
To mix, once you are done adding your oils, close the bottle tightly and continuously rub it back and forth between your palms. This is probably the best way to mix oils as it also heats it up in the process.
Once everything is blended together, you are done. Now you have your very own Rosehip Oil Cleanser.
How To Oil Cleanse
Now that you have your very own homemade Rosehip Oil Cleanser, it is just a matter of using it. Don’t worry, if you’re used to the more traditional wet-lather-rinse approach, we’ve got your covered. Oil cleansing is really super simple and here we’ll walk you right through it. Easy-peasy.
- Tie your hair or put on a headband to keep it out of your face, just as you normally would do.
- Take a couple drops of your Rosehip Oil cleanser on your palms, about five should suffice but you can always add more if needed. Rub your palms together and using your fingers, gently massage all over your face. Keep on doing this for about a minute or so to really get rid of makeup, sebum, dirt, and grime. Let it really get in there.
- Once you are satisfied, take a wash cloth or face towel and run it through warm water. Wring it out and use it to gently wipe off the oil.
- Pat dry with a clean towel and then you can follow up with your regular skincare routine.
