If you haven’t heard of oil cleansing, you’ve probably been living under a rock. This new way to wash your face has received rave reviews from not only industry experts and top bloggers, but from everyday people just like you who have learned the magic power of the oil cleanser.

Unlike traditional foaming cleansers or soap, oil cleansers come in liquid form and feel silky smooth going on your skin. Once rinsed off, you’re left with a glowing complexion and just a touch to your face will prove how nourishing this product can be when used correctly.

For those of you who are new to oil cleansing, we’re going to break down a few key points to know about how to do it properly to make sure you’re getting the most out of your new cleansing method! So grab your Olive Oil Cleanser and let’s get started!

You Only Need A Small Amount

Applying a small dime sized amount and rub it between your fingertips. Then apply gently to a dry face in a circular motion. You will feel the oil start to glide across your face but will notice that it doesn’t foam up. Don’t worry, it’s not supposed to.

Don’t Keep Rubbing For Too Long

You may notice it takes on the color of whatever is left on your face for the day, so don’t be frightened if you see a bit of your foundation or mascara color coming through, that’s totally normal. Oil cleansers have a reputation for being really powerful at removing even the most waterproof of makeup.

Keep rubbing in a circular motion and make sure to scrub all parts of your face from your hairline to your jawline. Because oil cleansers are often made with powerful ingredients like Olive Oil, you want to be sure to keep it out of your mouth and eyes. For the eye area, you can also use a cotton pad with a few drops of cleanser to remove any mascara or eyeliner before cleansing the rest of your face.

It Works For Almost Every Skin Type

skin types, oil cleansing, skincareHave oily skin? That’s no reason to avoid an oil cleanser! While some people think that putting oil on oil is not a great idea, it actually will help control your oil production over time with regular use. Oil cleansers help fight acne or breakouts and will not clog your pores.

If you have combination skin or dry skin, you’ll be surprised at how nourishing an oil cleanser can be! Unlink soap and foam cleanser, you’re not going to have that hard, dry and rough skin once you rinse the cleanser off.  Instead, your skin looks like it has a halo glow and will feel extremely soft.

There are very few skincare products that can really work for everyone, and that’s why to us, oil cleansers are the holy grail! Just ask the thousands of happy customers who have purchased our Olive Oil Cleanser!

 

These Simple Tips Will Make Your Pores Look Smaller

shrink pores, smaller pores, pores, make pores smaller

Large pores can leave you looking older and feeling insecure. When pores are enlarged, it makes it easy for oil and dirt to become trapped, causing blackheads which will actually make your pores look even bigger!

Pores are how our skin breaths and for most of us they are a fact of life. Today we’re going to break down the easiest way for you to deal with enlarged pores and how to shrink them safely at home.

Exfoliate

SKINCARE, ANTI-AGING, PORES, EXFOLIATIONDon’t underestimate the results a proper exfoliation can have for your pores! When you exfoliate your skin, the rough texture of your exfoliant will help clear dirt, oil, and debris from your skin and pores.

For those with sensitive skin, make sure you only exfoliate once a week to avoid redness and flare-ups. For normal or oily skin, start with exfoliation twice a week and slowly work your way up to every other day to allow your skin time to adjust to this change in your routine.

SkinTip: Apply your Repair & Release Cream generously after exfoliation to avoid your skin becoming dry and flakey. 

Let Your Pores Breath

pores, skincare, makeup, anti-agingJust like our lungs, our skin needs to breathe. If your skin is covered in makeup, pollution or dirt, it’s just going to clog your pores more and make them look even larger than they are.

The best way to avoid this is by applying thin layers of skincare and makeup to your face and making sure you remove all your makeup at the end of the day. When your skin is clean, it has the opportunity to purify itself naturally and work to resolve any built up bacteria clogging your pores.

Use An Oil Cleanser

Using oils instead of traditional soap or detergent cleansers can also help protect the natural lipid layer of the skin and the good bacteria that live there.

Oil cleansers work like a magnet to attract the dirt in your pores without disrupting your skin. Even the most sensitive or oily skin types praise oil cleansers for the powerful cleansing ability but gentle application.

By using an oil cleanser like our Olive Oil Cleanser twice daily, you will help shrink pores by giving them the most thorough but gentle clean possible. After a few days, you’ll notice pores look visibly smaller and skin looking much younger!

These Are The Three Skincare Resolutions You Should Make For 2019

2019 gives us the perfect opportunity to reflect on the past and set intentions for the new year ahead. Most of the time, resolutions include topics like eating better or getting more exercise but most people often overlook positive changes they can make for their skin.

This year, there are three simple resolutions you can make for your skin that are going to help you look and feel your best. If you follow these three resolutions, you can expect to breeze into the new year with a youthful, stunning glow!

#1: Make SPF your BFF

sunscreen, spf, sun protection, skincareWe can’t tell you enough how important using sunscreen is. UV rays can damage the DNA of your skin cells leaving unwanted pigmentation issues and lots and lots of wrinkles.

Make using sunscreen your top resolution for 2019 and slather on at least an SPF 30 daily. Luckily, more and more makeup brands are including SPF in their foundation but make sure that you’ve got a lightweight backup to reapply throughout the day.

Remember, if you’re not reapplying your sunscreen at least two or three times a day, you might as well not be wearing any so an important part of this resolution is the re-application!

#2: Wash Your Face Twice A Day

cleansing, oil cleansing, skincareWe get it, cleansing can be daunting but it’s so important for your skin that we cannot emphasize enough how much of an effect it will have on your skin. Cleansing twice a day doesn’t just remove dirt, grime, and makeup but it also helps remove toxins and free radicals from being absorbed into your skin.

For 2019, ditch your traditional foaming cleanser which can dry out your skin and leave lots of the invisible dirt on your face. Instead, opt for a powerful oil-based cleanser like our Olive Oil Cleanser. The oil works like a magnet to attract everything that is deep inside your pores after a long day or night and leaves your skin so soft, you won’t believe it until you try it!

#3: Practice Self Care At Least Once A Week

face scrub, sheet mask, self care, skincareIf you’re a skincare addict like we are, then you know the pure joy of self-care. Whether it’s a quick sheet mask, an at-home facial or even a DIY scrub, taking time to relax and pamper yourself can really show on your face.

This year, make it a resolution to take at least one hour a week to yourself to focus on going above and beyond for your skin.

Use your Repair and Release cream morning and night, check out Pinterest for easy to make masks and scrubs or go splurge on some from your favorite brands but no matter what, we promise you will see the positive effects.

It’s been proven that stress can add to wrinkles and lines and the small practice of taking time to care about yourself and your skin can drastically improve the texture of your skin and help reduce your chances of more wrinkles.

These Are Just A Few Reasons Why Using A Cleanser Is So Important

If you’re not washing your face at least twice a day, you’re leaving your skin exposed to some scary elements that can wreak havoc in so many ways. Uncleansed skin leads to breakouts, accelerated signs of aging and dullness, which not only make you look older but actually age your skin without you even knowing.

Here are just a few of the many reasons why it’s important to cleanse your face twice a day.

It Helps Keep Your Pores Clean

breakouts, , skincare tips, pores, cleansingPores are tiny openings in your skin that can take in everything in their surroundings. On your face, they can easily be clogged by factors like dry skin, a buildup of dead skin cells, or dirt and oil becoming stuck beneath the surface. When this happens, breakouts start to pop up and no matter your age, you’re susceptible to it.

When pores are clogged, they appear enlarged and give free radicals, the elements that accelerate aging and wrinkles, a home to thrive in and cause problems on your face. Cleansing twice daily is a very easy way to make sure your pores stay clear of free radicals and buildup and keep your skin looking youthful, bright and healthy.

It Promotes Proper Skins Hydration

hydrated skin, skincare, cleansing routineEvery person on earth has a slightly different skin type and each type of skin does require some specific care to look and feel it’s best, but what all skin types have in common is they require just the right amount of hydration to function at optimal levels.

What you’re washing with is an important part of your skin’s hydration. Drugstore brands and traditional foam cleansers can disrupt your skins pH balance and leave your skin stripped of its natural oils resulting in dry or combination skin.

Make sure that when you’re cleaning twice a day, you’re using an oil-based cleanser. It works with almost every single skin type to address oil production and pH levels that are suitable for you. The result is clean, hydrated and glowing skin with no dullness in sight.

It Helps Anti-Aging Treatments Perform Better

wrinkles, before and after, anti-agingAll the serums and creams you use are formulated with ingredients that can only help if they’re able to penetrate the skin properly. Without daily cleansing, you’re throwing your money down the toilet on anti-aging products because they’re not even able to do what they are made to do.
