We have been receiving a LOT of inquiries about the oil cleansing method. The conversation usually goes something like this…”You want me to wash my face with WHAT? with OIL? You’re kidding, right?” We completely understand that this can be a foreign concept to most people.
So I completely understand when people have questions. Here’s a quick rundown of some of the most frequently asked questions that we have received.
How does it work?
OIL dissolves OIL, and that is a scientific FACT! When you wash your face with traditional cleansers, you strip your skin of healthy oils. These healthy oils are essential for the balance of your skin. So, by scrubbing your face in an effort to “get it clean”, you may be causing more damage than you had originally intended. With our Cleansing Oil, you wash away all of the icky, dirty oil on your face and replace it with clean, Healthy Oil!
Please note that it may take a week or two for your skin to adjust to this new regimen, So Be Patient!
All 3 of our Oil Cleansers are specifically formulated to balance your skin using all natural nourishing oils & essential oils.
Which Cleansing Oil should I start off with?
I typically recommend that people start off with the Normal/Combo, unless your skin is VERY oily or VERY dry. I personally used to have very oily skin. But after about 3 months of oil cleansing, my skin was able to balance itself out (our bodies are SO AMAZING, aren’t they!?!?) and stop producing oil like crazy. So now I use the Normal formula.
HOW do I do it?
Very simple…follow the directions on the bottle!
Will your Cleansing Oil remove my makeup?
Yes! You would be surprised at how well this stuff removes your makeup…even eye makeup (mascara, eyeliner, etc).
In what order should the products be used?
– The correct order of use is Cleansing Oil, then Myrrhaculous Face Oil, then Myrrhaculous Face Cream.
How often should I do it?
– We typically recommend that you oil cleanse once per day.
I have acne prone skin. Is oil cleansing good for me?
– YES YES YES! I’ve heard many success stories from customers who switched to our Cleansing Oil and have seen a marked improvement in their skin! Even customers who suffered for years from cystic acne say their skin is in better condition than it ever has been before.
Something that I ALWAYS recommend to customers with bad acne is that they read Liz Wolfe’s Skintervention Guide. This guide is AMAZING and it changed my life! Reading this guide, in addition to Melissa & Dallas Hartwig’s book “It Starts with Food” taught me what kind of damage I was doing to my body by eating junk, and how my skin was a direct reflection of these poor choices.
What should I expect?
– Your skin may look younger the very next day…or, it may break out like it did when you were a teenager! Remember, your skin has been washed, picked, toned, cleansed, scrubbed, and exfoliated using products with chemicals and toxic preservatives for a very long time. You can’t expect changes to happen overnight. So, this process will require P-A-T-I-E-N-C-E! Be patient…stick it out for at least 2 weeks…and you will be very happy with the results!
And there you have it! If you still haven’t found a conventional face wash that’s working for you, then maybe it’s time you give oil cleansing a try!!!
Remember, your skin is your largest organ. Treat It Well.
Until next time,
