I’ve been really into Face massage when I’m Oil Cleansing or applying serum. There are so many benefits like boosting circulation, releasing tension, encouraging drainage of lymph/detoxification, and not surprisingly there are pressure points on the face that instantly relieve congestion and get things flowing.... and so I thought, why not create an Oil Cleansing blend with essential oils that also support the detox, the decongestant, and circulation properties of face massage?
When using an Oil Cleanser, there is always some form of face massage involved. It’s pretty intuitive... as you massage the oil in upward and outward strokes and focus on congested areas like the t-zone, chin, and sides of the nose. The point of using oil is that oil breaks down oil and sebum (the stuff that clogs pores) and balances oils production while leaving skin smooth, clean and refreshed, as it will never strip the skin of its natural ‘good’ oils that keep it supple and balanced. It also effectively removes makeup better than water based cleansers and it does a way better job of actually cleaning the skin, but in a much gentler way. But there is a process/ritual to do it right:
Massage into skin for 2-5 minutes (or longer if you wish) and deeply inhale the beautiful essential oils and enjoying the additional benefits of aromatherapy. Take a damp warm to hot washcloth and gently wipe away oil completely. You might want to rinse twice to make sure...😘✨
