When it comes to cleansing, most women only depend on facial cleansers and foams. While they do a decent job, these cleansers don’t get to the pores of your skin because it is clogged with dirt, oil and makeup. That’s why using a surface cleanser like micellar water or cleansing oil is essential.

Now, a lot of you may have tried using micellar water at the end of the day to get rid of all the dirt, makeup and excess oil. However, when it comes to cleansing oil you are probably still on the fence. We get it, most skin types and oils don’t go well together. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t experience the benefits of using one. Take a look at all the benefits of cleansing oil and see what you are missing out on.

If you think your facial cleanser is removing every ounce of dirt from your skin, wipe your face with a cotton pad afterwards and you will notice traces of dirt and makeup on it. A cleansing oil dissolves even the most stubborn makeup particles by getting deep into your pores and lifting off the gunk. Simply massage a few drops of cleansing oil onto your face for a minute or two and then wipe off.

Most cleansers contain chemicals that are not suitable for sensitive skin; this leads to dryness, irritation and redness. Since cleansing oils are naturally derived plant and seed-based oils, they are gentle on the skin and suitable for even the most sensitive skin types.

A lot of chemical-laden cleansers will give you squeaky clean skin, but at the same time rob the natural oils from it, leaving it dry. This puts you at risk of premature ageing and even breakouts as the skin tries to over compensate for the lack of oil. All of this can be avoided by incorporating cleansing oil into your beauty routine.
