Ever thought about using oil to clean your face?
Using oil to clean your skin may seem strange and go against everything you’ve been taught. Most of us, especially those with oily skin, have been warned to stay away from products that contain oil.
What about a cleansing balm? What is that? This article will clear up any confusion and help you decide... when it comes to your face, should you use a cleansing oil or a cleansing balm?
Oil has been used in cleansers for quite some time as it makes it easier to remove excess oil, dirt, and makeup from your skin. Yes, oil removes oil.
Oil cleansers have now become very popular and most skincare lines now offer several choices in their product lineup. Truth is that there are many benefits of using oil to cleanse your skin, the major one being that it eliminates the damage caused by using soap to wash your face. Using traditional soaps or detergents dries out the skin, breaks down good bacteria, and damages the lipid layer.
Using an oil cleanser helps to hydrate dry mature skin, removes impurities more effectively, and will help to break down and remove makeup. Your cleansing oil may have healing properties, important nutrients, or other skin-boosting properties, depending on the oil you choose.
Premade oil cleansers are available online and in most drugstores and there are even some made specifically for acne-prone skin. Soko Beauty Glow has a selective range with the best cleansing oils from brands such as iUnik and Haruharu Wonder.
Cleansing Balm has become all the rage. With oil as its foundation, it cleans away dirt and makeup, and cleans and unclogs pores. It comes in the form of a buttery cream that melts once applied to the skin and emulsifies into a milky liquid when water is applied.
The emulsification helps to break down makeup and is very beneficial to persons who wear heavy makeup. Cleansing balms, unlike other cleaners, is safe to use on the sensitive areas of the eye because it's made of natural ingredients that won't cause any damage.
Cleansing balms are especially beneficial for dry skin as it helps to moisturize skin and is packed with natural oils for added nutrients. Because it is a cream it is easier to apply than oils which may become runny and messy and cause product waste. A great cleansing balm in our range is from Heimish.
The truth is that one is not necessarily better than the other and as with most beauty products it all depends on your skin type and what is best for it. The major difference between an oil cleanser and a balm cleanser is that one is liquid and the other solid. As they are both oil-based, the decision to choose one over the other is simply a matter of preference.
