So I am now oil washing! Why oil wash? Well, it’s winter.
Regular products strip the oil out of our skin, leaving our largest organ trying to repair itself by replacing the oil stripped away. This leaves me in a cycle of being tight and dry followed by the inevitable oil slick. My nose is horrifically oily midday… Each time we strip the oil away, our skin over-compensates for the lack of moisture by creating more oil and I don’t need it!
So in order to fix that, I oil wash… I use just plain vegetable oil (olive oil would be better but I’m feeling a bit cheap) I also add a drop or two of tea tree oil to help fight my acne on my forehead and nose. But I use only oil on my eyelids (tea tree oil would BURN if it got into my eyes)
Let’s see how this works!
Here’s my forehead today… I’ll post an update in two weeks!
