Some Oil Cleansing Things

2 posts in this topic

Ive heard some very good things about oil cleansing, and some very bad things.

Some people seem to say that after a while,(few weeks, months) they get clogged pores/breakouts/dry skin

I was wondering if it's because oil cleansing is more like exfoliating,(removing deep oils in skin/massaging dead skin), and exfoliating often or everyday will dehydrate your skin.

or do oils, specifically olive oil, clog pores?

Some oils can be very clogging. Typically oils with a high linoleic content and low oleic content are better for people with acne prone skin. Olive oil is high oleic, and I know that it clogs many people. Good oils to try are safflower, sunflower, grapeseed, hemp, meadowfoam, mineral. Always do a patch test first though.
