Why Are Oils Good Even For Oily Skin?
While it may seem counterintuitive, plant-based oils are good for oily skin!
Plant-based oils, such as jojoba and castor oil, mimic the natural oils produced by your skin; they help to regulate your skin’s oil production, which can help to balance the amount of oil your skin naturally produces.
Did you know that some people experience oily skin because their skin is dehydrated? This occurs when people feel they need to “dry out” their skin and use products to do so, or choose not to moisturize out of fear their skin will become too oily. What happens is their skin becomes dehydrated and responds by producing excess sebum, creating a cycle in which more oil is produced to keep up with the lack of moisture.
Plant-based oils are a win-win, as they help to balance sebum production while simultaneously moisturizing your skin. Additionally, plant-based oils have emollient properties, which help to soften and smooth the skin.
Edye’s Naturals products all use a blend of plant-based oils for their synergistic actions. Each oil provides a plethora of nutrients, which work together to support the health of your skin. Plant-based oils contain antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties, which can be particularly helpful for people who tend to break out (unfortunately many people with acne assume that oil will make their condition worse).
Did you know that you can cleanse your skin with oil instead of soap?
Natural oils can dissolve and remove dirt, makeup and other impurities from your skin. The basic reasoning for why oil cleansing works is that oil dissolves oil; massaging oil into your skin helps to break down and dissolve the impurities that have accumulated on the surface of your skin.
Oil cleansing is great because it allows you to simultaneously wash and moisturize your skin, leaving it clean and soft. Edye developed her Organic Lemon Cleansing Oil long before cleaning with oil became trendy. Edye’s carefully crafted Organic Lemon Cleansing Oil uses castor oil, grapeseed oil, lemon oil, and others to help clear up acne and blackheads by flushing toxins out of your skin. Edye’s cleansing oil is also a gently effective way to remove everyday makeup and impurities.
The History of Oil Cleansing
Oil cleansing has been practiced for thousands of years! It can be traced back to the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. This practice remained popular in the Middle Ages, particularly in the Middle East and Africa, where olive oil was commonly used to moisturize and cleanse the skin. It wasn’t until the 20th century, when soap and water became the go-to method, that oil cleaning fell to the wayside. Today, oil cleansing is once again gaining popularity, and is recommended by beauty experts to help improve skin hydration, elasticity and radiance.
Now you know not to be afraid of using quality plant-based oil products on oily skin. Give Edye’s Organic Lemon Cleansing Oil a try, and see the results for yourself. Like all of Edye’s products, you’ll see more and more results over time.
