Homemade Cleansing Oil (A Winter Skin Wonder!)

Cleans oil 1

Cleansing oil: great for dry dehydrated winter skin

I don’t know about you guys but with the change in weather, strong winds & central heating, my combination skin can get a bit alligator-dry this time of year & needs more moisturisation.

Well how about  an oil-based cleanser? These are increasing in popularity now as they gently dissolve out the impurities from your skin while rehydrating it & nourishing it. All you do is apply cleansing oil to a damp face, massage & wash off with lots of tepid water. (They do not leave a greasy residue all over your face or make you spotty!)

So if you want baby-soft skin in under 5 mins, read on!

  1. I tried some before I went to bed and woke up with lovely soft moisturised skin after only one application. I was very impressed – might try and make some myself.
