Cleansing oils are a simple product, but that doesn’t mean you can pick any random oil. You must consider your skin type and a few other factors before buying it. Read our buying guide below to know about them in detail.
You must choose an oil that is compatible with your skin type. When it comes to cleansing oils, there is nothing like ‘one size fits all'. Do not use any random oil on your face. Different ingredients suit different skin types. Read below to know in detail.
You might be thinking using oil-based cleansers for oily skin can be counterintuitive. Well, that is far from the truth. In reality, oily skin actually needs oils to maintain balance and stay healthy. Over-cleansing can strip off the natural oils produced by your skin.
If you have oily skin, avoid pore-blocking oils like coconut, avocado, and olive oil. Instead, look for ingredients such as jojoba oil and peppermint oil that have astringent or anti-inflammatory properties.
Dry skin needs a product with enough nourishing properties that can help restore moisture, keeping the skin hydrated. Oils filled with vitamins can soothe and revitalise dry or flaky skin.
If you have dry skin, look for nourishing oils like olive oil, argan oil, camellia, etc., which will keep it moisturised. Oils rich in omega and essential fatty acids, like Chia oil, are also great for dry skin. Avoid lemon oils as they can cause excessive dryness to your skin.
For acne-prone skin, go for lightweight oils such as jojoba oil, sunflower oil, and grapeseed oil. These oils are enriched with ingredients that can fight acne-causing bacteria and take off dead skin cells. Others like tea tree oil also work great as they detox the face and help treat blemishes.
If you suffer from acne, avoid using heavy or comedogenic ingredients like olive oil. They can clog your pores and may result in further breakouts and irritation.
People with sensitive skin should choose oils that have calming properties and anti-bacterial ingredients. Two such examples are rosemary and camellia seed oil. These oils effectively hydrate the skin and do not cause irritation. You can also try coconut or argan oil, both of which are anti-inflammatory.
Those with combination skin may face a challenge while choosing a cleansing oil that balances their dry and oily patches. Many people found great results from using oils that had ingredients like vitamin E and sunflower oil. They remove impurities while keeping the skin hydrated.
Nowadays, beauty products are filled with artificial ingredients or harmful chemicals that enhance their texture or appeal. Although they may seem attractive to the eyes, truth be told – they are bad for your health. So when you are buying an oil-based cleanser, opt for one with plant-based ingredients.
Natural oils like coconut, jojoba, argan, olive, sunflower oil, etc., are good for your facial skin. Beware of toxic ingredients like parabens, petrolatum, and sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). They can interfere with the skin’s natural function and cause infections. So check that they do not make a part of the ingredients list on the label.
Scented cleansing oils can make your cleansing experience more luxurious, but they come with a cost. These oils contain artificial fragrance-inducing substances that can cause allergic reactions.
So avoid oils with a strong smell, especially if you have sensitive skin. High-quality cleansing oils do not have any scents or dyes added. If you are looking for an authentic product, go for the one that has a mild odour. Coconut oil is the best example.
Oil cleansing is simple and can easily become part of your everyday skincare routine. You can do it in the morning as well as at night. Just follow the below steps:-
