Oils are on the rise and amazing for face, hair and body, even if you have combination or oily skin. In fact a swipe of oil across your face is exactly what you'll need when your skin is on the oily side. The reason RAD Cleansing Oil and Cleansing Balm are so effective is that when you apply a nourishing oil to your skin, sebum production is reduced thus diminishing blackheads and breakouts.
* Dry Oil Cleansing is washing your face with an oil blend using a DRY washcloth to remove dirt and oil. There is no water used.
* Regular Oil Cleansing Method uses a damp/wet washcloth and oil to cleanse the face.
If you're looking to have healthier, younger-looking skin without exposure to chemicals, toxins or harsh treatments, consider adding RAD cleansing balm or cleansing oil to your skin care routine. Oil, the skin care ingredient feared most, is the ingredient that can actually transform your skin. Using the dry oil cleansing method with the right oils will give you beautiful youthful looking skin.
The oil cleansing method is REALLY good for dry or maturing skin.
If your skin is beginning to, or already looking more “aged,” or losing it suppleness and elasticity – this would be something to try.
It can be particularly good for combination skin that tends to be oily and dry either at the same time, or switches back and forth. This oil cleansing method can help to balance out combination skin giving it enough moisture that it never gets dry, and simultaneously not over producing oil either.
Dry Oil Cleansing Method could even help balance out chronically oily skin as well (because giving your skin more moisture can help it stop over-producing oil).
And if you have normal skin with no particular issues, you can certainly try it out to see how your skin responds (this might be a good addition to your skincare routine to prevent fine lines and wrinkles).
**I have had many questions on how to use RAD Cleansing balm and Oil. In response to those questions I am posting the proper method for dry oil cleansing, so it can become an effective part of your face cleansing routine.
The Dry Oil Cleansing Method
Follow these instruction every morning.
1-Take a dime size amount of oil and apply it to your dry face and neck.
2- Massage your face and neck with outward strokes for a minute or two.
3- Using a clean washcloth/flannel, gently (yet firmly) pat your skin starting from the center of your face, outward. As you’re patting the entire surface of your face and neck, the washcloth/flannel should lift and remove the oil, dirt and debris from the surface of your skin.
4- Make sure you are gentle as you are patting the cloth/flannel against your skin. You should never pull or tug at your skin, nor should your skin feel hurt, irritated or become red by the patting/pressing the cloth against your skin.
5- Once you have patted off all the excess oil from the surface of your face and neck, you are done. You can put the used washcloth in the laundry, and follow up by using skincare products and/or makeup if you wish.
EVENING CLEANSE (DOUBLE CLEANSE):
If you wear makeup and/or sunscreen during the day, or live in an environment where there’s a lot of pollution or dust/dirt in the air – follow these double cleansing instructions for your evening cleanse. (If you don’t wear makeup, sunscreen or live in a polluted or dusty environment, follow the Morning Cleanse Instructions for both your morning and evening cleansing routine).
1- If you wear heavily pigmented eye makeup or lipstick (like mascara, dark smoky eye shadow, eyeliner, or red lipstick) – remove that first with an oil or makeup remover.
2- Take a dime size amount of oil and apply it to your dry face and neck.
3- Massage your face and neck with outward strokes for a minute or two.
4- Using one side of a clean washcloth/flannel, remove the oil, makeup, sunscreen, and products from the surface of your skin using a light, swiping motion from the center of your face, outward, and then downward along your neck. This swiping motion will remove all makeup and product from the surface of your skin. Always make sure the swiping strokes are very light and gentle, never tugging, pulling, or irritating your skin.
6- Once all oil, makeup, and products are removed, take another dime size amount of oil, and apply it to your face and neck.
7- Massage your face and neck again with outward strokes for a minute or two.
8- Using the other side of your clean washcloth/flannel, gently (yet firmly) pat your skin starting from the center of you face, outward, and then pat your neck in the direction downward. As you’re patting the surface of your face and neck, the washcloth/flannel will lift and remove the excess oil, and any remaining dirt, debris, and leftover makeup or sunscreen from the surface of your skin.
9- Once you have patted off all the excess oil from the surface of your face and neck, and your face feels clean, you are done. Put the used washcloth in the laundry, and you can then follow up by using your night-time skincare products if you wish. Such as
· Applying RAD Hydrosol Toner and Oil Serum after cleansing so the properties of the toner penetrate the skin. Toner will help wipe away any oil residue from your skin so there is no film of oil left sitting on the surface. Your skin will glow!
