Your Top 5 Oil Cleansing Questions Answered (From Our Founder)

Cleansing your face with oil cleanser - do you feel little weird? There are so many question marks when it comes to oil cleansers. Today, I would like to answer those top 5 oil cleansing questions asked by my followers, and customers. 

 As you know, Green-Beauty Co., we believe in the power of Ayurveda and its timeless wisdom for achieving holistic non-toxic beauty. Oil cleansing is a cornerstone of Ayurvedic skincare, and I am here to address your most pressing questions about this transformative practice. As a founder, I really feel that if we can't answer those questions - our products and our vision will not make it to the mark of purity. So let's get cracking... 

1. What is Oil Cleansing?

Oil cleansing is a natural and effective method of removing impurities, makeup, and excess sebum from your skin using pure oils. Unlike harsh cleansers, oil cleansing respects your skin's natural balance, leaving it hydrated and radiant. According to Ayurveda, oil is known as "Sneha," which means love. By massaging your face with oil, you're not only cleansing your skin but also infusing it with love and care.

2. How Does Oil Cleansing Work?

The principle of "like dissolves like" is central to oil cleansing. When you apply oil to your skin, it binds with the excess sebum and impurities, making them easier to remove. In Ayurveda, oil cleansing helps to balance the "Kapha" dosha, which is associated with oiliness and congestion. Using the right oils can detoxify the skin, promoting clarity and a healthy glow.

3. What Oils Should I Use for My Skin Type?

Choosing the right oil for your skin type is crucial in Ayurveda. Here’s a quick guide:

  • Dry Skin (Vata): Opt for nourishing oils like sesame or coconut oil, which are deeply hydrating.
  • Oily Skin (Kapha): Choose lighter oils like jojoba or grapeseed oil that won’t clog pores.
  • Combination Skin (Pitta): Balancing oils like coconut or rosehip oil are ideal.

At Green-Beauty Co., our handcrafted oil blends are formulated with Ayurvedic herbs to suit every skin type, ensuring your skin gets the perfect nourishment it needs.

4. How Do I Oil Cleanse Properly?

Here’s a simple Ayurvedic oil cleansing routine:

  1. Apply: Start with dry skin. Pour a small amount of your chosen oil into your palms and gently massage it into your face in circular motions.
  2. Steam: Soak a clean cloth in warm water, wring it out, and place it over your face for a minute. The steam helps to open your pores and allows the oil to penetrate deeply.
  3. Wipe: Use the cloth to gently wipe away the oil, along with dirt and impurities.
  4. Rinse: Splash your face with lukewarm water and pat dry with a soft towel.

This ritual not only cleanses your skin but also provides a moment of mindfulness and self-care, integral to Ayurvedic practices.

5. How Often Should I Oil Cleanse?

Oil cleansing can be done daily, especially in the evening to remove the day's buildup of impurities. If you have dry or sensitive skin, you might find oil cleansing every other day works best. The key is to listen to your skin and adjust your routine accordingly.
