How to: Oil Cleanse

Oil cleansing is a very of-the-moment skincare trend right now.

What is it and why should you try it? Cleansing with oil gives your skin more moisture, something especially needed now that the weather is getting colder.
It leaves your skin extra hydrated compared to other more traditional cleansers. An added bonus? Oil is a natural makeup remover!

This can be done with any of our facial oils, but we recommend trying it with Lapis Facial Oil because of its antibacterial benefits. 

Here's how to do an oil cleanse:

  1. Put 5 to 10 drops of Lapis onto fingertips.
  2. Massage oil into dry skin.
  3. Let sit for a minute.
  4. Remove with a warm wet towel; this is necessary because the oil won't come off with just water. 
  5. Pat face dry and enjoy perfectly moisturized and hydrated skin.
