Nourishing Pre-Cleansing Oil
The art of cleansing is the foundation of any skincare regimen.
Here at Graydon, we believe in setting aside a few minutes each evening to cleanse off the day, both physically and energetically. Granting yourself extra time to give your face some love can be truly transformational and with Keto Cleanse's rich buttery coconut scent the experience is truly intoxicating. Ever notice how much more fresh and beautiful you feel when you wake up after a deep cleanse the night before, as opposed to passing out on your bed, makeup and all? Quite a difference!!
The ways in which we clean our face have transformed over the years. From your grandmother’s cold cream to the squeaky clean foaming cleanser of your teenage years, there have always been a variety of ways to get your skin clean. One of these methods that has taken the spotlight recently in the modern skincare world is the process of oil cleansing. While this method may seem totally new to some, using oil to clean and purify the skin has actually been around for thousands of years. Ancient cultures from around the world used some of the same natural plant oils that we use today to remove dirt and grime from the skin. What’s old is new again.
So, how does oil cleansing work? It begins with the basic chemistry principle of 'like dissolving like'. So, oil actually dissolves the excess oil that builds upon our skin throughout the day that clogs our pores. Our skin naturally produces a type of oil itself, called sebum. This beneficial substance maintains our skin’s natural pH balance while also protecting and moisturizing. Many harsh traditional cleansers not only remove dirt and grime that have accumulated throughout the day, but they strip the skin of it’s own sebum, which can wreak havoc over time. Without this protective film of oil, the skin is not only more susceptible to bacteria and the possibility of infection (pimples and inflammation), but it also sends a message to your skin that it needs to produce more oil, resulting in excess oil. And more breakouts!
Oil cleansing thoroughly removes unwanted oil and grime, while simultaneously moisturizing the skin and protecting it. And, it’s great for every skin type. From normal skin to severe acne, everyone can benefit from cleansing with a proper oil.
