What is it?
We already told you how cleansing was one of the most important parts of the CTM cycle. The newest skin trend—oil cleansing promises to be your one-stop solution to removing impurities from your face. This cleansing routine uses oil to dissolve all the dirt and grime and of course, sebum from your face giving you visibly clear and cleansed skin.
How does it work?
When you use an oil filled with vitamins and antioxidants on your skin, it dissolves all the oil that your skin produces. Basically, once you rub your face with this oil, this good oil cancels out the bad oils in your skin. Oil cleansing also helps to maintain the skin’s natural pH balance while cleansing your skin.
How to do it?
Rinse your face lightly with lukewarm water and then pour castor oil or coconut oil on your palm and gently apply on your face. Massage gently moving upwards for 2 minutes and then let the oil stay on your face for at least 20 seconds.
Now, soak a washcloth with lukewarm water and then hold it on your face for about 15 seconds. Wipe off till you feel the oil has gone from your skin completely.
Once you’re done, wash your face with a gentle cleanser such as the Lakmé Blush & Glow Facewash in Peach or Strawberry that will get rid of any remaining oil residue without drying your face.
