When it comes to properly cleaning your face, choosing the correct products is just as important has how often, and how you do it.
What is a cleansing oil, you might ask?
The best cleansing oil is hydrophilic oil, whose density is lower than the density of skin oil.
The unique feature of this oil is that when u apply it to your skin and gently rub it in, it is going directly in to your pores.
However, because of the lower density, it manages to get lower than your skin oil!
Once this oil contacts with water, it dissolves your skin fat inside of the pores.
I seriously recommend it to everyone! Especially for girls who are using BB, CC, and BCD creams, because these creams are going deep inside of your pores, and you cannot remove them by regular facial foam.
My favorite is “Holika Holika” Soda Pore B.B. deep cleaning oil.
Do You Need This if You Do Not Use Make-up?
Why is this very important for girls who do not use makeup often, or at all? Well, this is because your skin is not protected by cream or anything at all, and your pores are exposed to everything that is in the air of the streets.
This includes: dust, dead cells (cells from dead animals, their excrements, etc), exhausts, and more! As I found out so beautifully on my first trip to New York City this past spring, literally anything you think of can be in the air in certain places!
This all ends up on your skin, because of the wind.
Sadly, this impacts your skin even more than when you are using cosmetics, because tonal cream is aggressive for the skin.
This little understood fact is why a lot of girls who stop using cosmetics because of skin issues find that they have worse issues afterwards, than before.
By using the cleansing oil, you will not have acne or comedones anymore.
Also, this cleansing oil is regulating your skin oil balance, rehydrating dry skin, and reducing oily skin.
You can forget about blackhead problems!
How do you use it? Just apply a small amount of oil and rub it on your face very gently.
Even to the point that you will feel small “sands” rolling on your face, by your fingers. (This is your blackheads just leaving your pores!)
You do need to do this for a fairly long amount of time, but once you begin to do it regularly it will only take you about a minute!
After, you can put a small amount of water on your face, just to make it wet. You will see how it changes color! Wait about 30 seconds, then you can go on to the next step!
Choosing a Proper Face Wash to Use
A face wash can be any face foam, gel, or soap.
The most important factor here is that it must be organic (which is why I always use Korean brands).
My favorite one is Tony Moly Egg Pore.
For washing face at the “next level,” it is great to have a special electric brush. I highly recommend a silicon one, for example this here.
I have also found a more unique brush, which also includes photo-therapy. I think this one is just perfect!
When I was in China, technology with this type of effect was about 100$, but now you can easily find something like this for a very reasonable price.
This is the most sterile one, and you will see a clear difference between regular facial wash, and facial wash with an electric brush from the first use!
This type of brush is removing dead skin, making micro massages, cleaning your pores by vibration, and improving your blood circulation to work much more efficiently!
Along with this, it is helping the creams which you apply work 2-3 times more effectively!
How do you use this? Apply a small amount of facial wash to your face and gently rub by the massage lines. (All facial manipulations should be only by massage lines, no excuses!)
Wash your face with a little hot water (just a little bit), and then at the end rise with a little bit of cold water.
- By the way, I am always using a water filter. It is very cheap, but can have a huge impact on what you are doing! It is better for your skin, teeth, and hair; and you become far less dry and itchy after washing. Along with this, it is extremely helpful with saving on your water bill, because it’s saving water! This is good for nature and the environment overall, which is a nice bonus!
- For water filter’s I am a big fan of this one here, but you can also buy an upgraded version which has added vitamins to improve your health even more!
