Why Apply Oil Cleanser On Your Dry/Oily/Sensitive Skin?

Why Apply Oil Cleanser On Your Dry/Oily/Sensitive Skin?

The idea of oil cleansing is to wipe off oil-soluble makeups from the skin without stripping its moisture. So it’s a must-have item for people who do makeups. Compared with foam cleansers that melt makeups as well, oil cleansers are much gentler because they work with natural oils. They are ideal for all skin types, including acne-prone, sensitive ones. But some critics have dismissed oil cleansing as a disservice to the skin, terming it a ‘cardinal sin’, because they doubt the necessity of applying oil when their skin is oily enough. However, researchers have always emphasized the importance of face oil (a.k.a. sebum) to the skin.

Debunking the Myth

Contrary to popular opinion, removing all oil from your skin does not mean the ideal result. Our skin needs both oil and water to function properly. Your skin care regimen should work to maintain a healthy oil-water balance. Excessive sebum and oil contribute to clogged pores, blackheads, and breakouts. The deficiency of sebum causes dryness, making your skin vulnerable to external stressors. Your skin is perfect at the equilibrium. If you use a harsh foam cleanser, you risk washing away the natural sebum from your skin. To react, the skin over-produce sebum, consequently clogging pores and breaking out. Cleansing oils can help with clogged pores because they help control the overproduction of sebum, with the prerequisite that you would wash away the oil with a gentle foam cleanser afterward.

 

Tips: If your foam cleanser is, unfortunately, the harsh one, you can try mixing with face lotion when cleansing. It can weaken the cleansing power a bit so that enough amount of sebum would remain on your skin.

Which oils should I choose for my skin type?

For particular skin types, these types of oil work the best:

  • Normal to dry – Avocado, almond, argan, and coconut oils
  • Acne-prone – Tea tree and neem oils
  • Oily – Castor, apricot seed, jojoba, grape seed oils

Oil cleansers are harmless for different skin types, especially when you choose the correct oils. As long as you do not rub your skin with a cotton pad violently, you would not destroy your skin when using an oil cleanser. And remember oil cleansing is always followed by a gentle water-based foam cleanser to remove the dirty oil.
