The best oil cleansing mix to wash face to keep acne free.
And speaking of variety, you know we are big fans of self experimentation. We always say –> Keep playing around with things until you find what works for your body as we are all different.
Back in March of this year we shared an updated video and post on our acne face routine –> we shared how we wash our faces. We still like that routine and those products, but we wanted to see if we could get more improvements. We have been playing around with oils cleansing since January of 2013. Here Lori shares her first thoughts on oil cleansing. Both of us are so grateful for coming across using oils to help clear our acne. And then we shared how we changed our oil blend as we continued to find what routine worked for us.
Well, we experimented some more….
And in today’s purely talk we are SO excited as we are sharing a new oil cleansing method that has really improved our skin. We made this oil blend back in May, so about 3 months ago. We waited to make sure it worked before sharing it with you. Both of us are excited to share what has helped us with our skin. We cannot guarantee your skin will like it, but we really do think it could help improve it.
The best oil cleansing face wash combination to keep face acne free.
We love washing our faces with oils. Don’t worry you won’t break out when using oils on your face. Promise!
We have oily, acne-prone, sensitive skin and using oils works WONDERS for our skin.
Both of us have been cystic acne free for months and months! It’s a miracle in a way because several years ago we never would have thought we would have our acne free skin again. Nope. There were days we weren’t sure if our acne would every go away or just STOP.
But it has!
Using this new oil cleansing mixture, along with the combination of a good real foods (mostly) and a few good quality supplements, helped our acne go away. Plus control our stress and manage our hormones…there are a lot of factors that cause acne.
Now if we experience a pimple it is usually just one or few very small pimples. We can totally handle those now.
We hope this new blend of oils that we love mixed with the combination of some powerful essential doTerra oils will help you with your acne or skin issues.
It has changed our faces and skin for the better! And we ONLY want the same for you!!!
We feel the essential oils we added to our new oil blend helped our skin even more. And our skin has continued to look good weeks and months later. We are jumping with joy over here.
The 3 oils that we used in this oil cleansing mix are some of our favorites. Oils that we have learned our skin LOVES! Hopefully yours will too!
- jojoba oil
- rosehip oil
- tamaru oil
We buy our oils from Mountain Rose Herbs because we love their quality. We find their products to be some of the best. We’ve never been disappointed with their products. Remember your face soaks in everything you put on it so make sure to use high quality and safe ingredients.
Benefits of these oils and why we use them:
Jojoba oil – it has absorption properties that are similar to our skins own sebum. It tricks your pores into thinking they are already saturated with oil and therefore that they do not need to overproduce. It is made of long straight chains of wax molecules instead of triglycerides (fatty acids) like normal vegetable oils so it won’t go rancid.
Rosehip oil – has healing and anti-microbial properties. High levels of vitamins C and A. Relatively non-greasy as it soaks into the skin easily. Its antioxidant and anti-microbial properties can minimise the growth of bacteria so as to avoid different types of breakout. It has been used for generations because of it’s healing properties.
Tamanu oil – works by promoting the formation of new tissues. Contains anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, and antioxidant properties. This oil really is a miracle oil. It is thick yet absorbs easily into the skin. Rich in fatty acids. Helps reduce the appearance of scars.
The 3 doTerra essential oils that have improved the appearance of our skin:
Sandalwood – good for dry skin and scars. Antiseptic. Astringent. Anti-inflammatory. Soothing and calming to the skin. (optional)
Geranium – great for dry and sensitive skin and wrinkles. Antibacterial. Anti-inflammatory. Antiseptic. Astringent. Relaxing and refreshing to the skin. Great for oily skin.
Frankincense – helps with wrinkles and scars. Anti-inflammatory. Antiseptic. It has amazing skin regeneration properties. It helps to improve skin tone and condition.
There are other great essential oils for skin too!
We wouldn’t be telling you guys a bunch of crap. Because we 100% know how it feels to have acne or skin issues. We know how important quality and finding the right products are for skin health.
