Why cleansing with oil is better than soap
The Oil Cleansing Method has been around for thousands of years. Its the preferred way of cleansing the skin in Ayurvedic medicine and something we love here at PLANTiful Apothecary headquarters.
It is gentle, effective, and helpful for many different skin types, which is why we love it so much. Our bodies love oil because it is hydrating and nourishing to the skin and the nervous system. When you wash with oil instead of soap it hydrates the skin and works to restore and nourish our natural sebum layer. The sebum layer is made up of oils and waxes that are designed to protect the skin from the elements and keep invaders out. Water and soap do the opposite, stripping oils off the skin along with the dirt. Our body responds by making more oil. So in actual fact, if you have oily skin, washing with soap and water will make your skin oilier over time. When you cleanse with oil, it gently removes impurities & even make-up, while keeping the skin hydrated, bringing your skin into balance over time.
We offer 3 blends which are
1) Nourish - Normal - Combination skin, or Pitta
2) Balance - Oily + acne-prone skin, or Kapha
3) Rejuvenate - Sensitive - Dry skin, or Vata
How to apply
Run the water hot and place a washcloth under it to get it nice and warm. Pour a small amount of the oil cleanser into your palm and massage onto your skin using upward strokes. Place the hot, wet washcloth on your face to gently steam your skin. Let it rest there for a few seconds then wipe off the cleanser with the washcloth. Voila! it's that easy! Follow with our herbal facial toner and facial serum for a rejuvenating experience that will leave your skin feeling clean, fresh, and moisturized!
