Points to notice when buying cleansing oil

Selecting by oil types

The oils added to cleansing oils can be divided into three categories: "mineral oils", "antioxidant oils", and "natural extracted oils". Since the formula may contain different types of oils at the same time, you can check the ingredients list when purchasing. In ingredients, the oil with the highest proportion will be listed first, hence can be roughly judged which type it belongs to.

Mineral oils give the best efficiency

Mineral oil has always been blamed to be harmful to the skin, but it has overwhelming cleansing power and removes even the toughest waterproof mascara with ease. In addition, this type of product is mostly fairly cheap.

However, if it is difficult to rinse off with water, it is necessary to cleanse again after removing makeup. In addition, the cleansing power of mineral oil is quite strong, and it easily wash away the original sebum of the skin and cause dryness. Therefore, if you have dry or sensitive skin, you may have to pay attention to whether there are similar ingredients added to the formula.

Correct steps for using cleansing oil

Most of the makeup remover products are marked to be used when the skin is dry. Because moisture will greatly reduce the cleaning effect, be sure to pay attention to whether there are special signs on the packaging when purchasing.

Step 1:Apply it to dry skin

Pour the cleansing oil on dry hands and apply directly on dry skin with makeup, without getting any moisture on it.

Step 2:Spread it evenly on your face

Apply the cleansing oil evenly to the entire surface, and massage in circular motions to dissolve makeup more easily; but remember to just gently press with your fingertips when massaging. Do not use excessive force. Don't stay in this step for too long, because the cleansing oil will also take away the oil that the skin needs, making the skin dehydrated.

Step 3:Emulsify with warm water

After the cleansing oil is fully applied, the most important step mentioned above is "emulsification". It is recommended to wet your hands with lukewarm water and massage your face with fingertips in circular motions. At this time, the cleansing oil and the makeup will merge and turn milky white. Finally, rinse with water to complete the makeup removal.

Step 4:Double cleanse your skin

after cleansing to ensure skin is completely clean.

Remove makeup completely to prevent acnes and blackheads

Cosmetics are oil based, so when they come in contact with cleansing oil, they can quickly melt and float away the dirt. However, the cleansing oil itself cannot be mixed with water. If you directly rinse it with water at this moment, it will not be completely cleaned at all. The cleansing oil and cosmetics will remain in the pores, which will cause blackheads and acne problems.

Therefore, when using a cleansing oil, it must be "emulsified" to exert the product's efficacy; emulsification refers to the process of "mixing water and oil until it becomes white." After evenly applying the cleansing oil, wet your hands and gently massage your face to emulsify the product. This step can make the cleansing oil hydrophilic, and then wash off the make-up and dirt.

Apply a hot towel to the face before cleansing, and apply the cleansing oil to the acne-prone areas for a period of time before emulsification. This opens up pores and softens blackheads. Massage for another 3 to 5 minutes for the emulsification process. The cleaning effect will be even better.
