5 Reasons Why You Should Use Cleansing Balms And Oils

So much is involved when it comes to adulting. There are many repetitive mundane tasks and responsibilities to tend to on the regular: wake up, brush your teeth, get dressed, walk the kids, take the dogs to school, go to work. BLAH BLAH BLAH REPEAT. Adulting can be overwhelming. And just think, at some point during your day, you have to DO YOUR SKIN CARE. Case in point: cleansing your face, especially in the evening. It’s one of many necessary steps in your skin care routine to ensure clear, smooth, beautiful skin. There are endless options when it comes to face wash and regardless of the formula you use (foam, cream, gel, wipes) you want to make sure it cleanses without stripping your face and is the right choice for your skin type and lifestyle.

In addition to the traditional cleansers previously mentioned, an option that is popular and continues to grow in prominence is cleansing balms and oils. Balms and oils can be partnered with your existing cleanser and is perfect because to get the cleanest skin possible it is important to double cleanse, especially if you wear heavy makeup, sunscreen, etc.

5 More Reasons Why You Should Consider Using A Cleansing Balm or Oil:

1. Ensures complete, thorough cleansing. Balms and oils will break down dirt, oil, makeup, and sunscreen before you even get to your regular cleanser. And because your skin is properly cleansed, the rest of your skin care products will work more effectively. If you are wearing (heavy) eye makeup it is still advised to use a separate waterproof eye makeup remover.

2. It can keep skin hydrated regardless of skin type but especially if you are dry and sensitive. Balms and oils are very emollient and contain ingredients that hydrate, nourish and protect the skin.

3. A little goes a long way. You only need a dime sized amount to get the job done. You will also use less of your regular cleanser.

4. It’s great for oily skin. “Hold up!” you might say because your skin is an everlasting greaseball. Trust me when I say that oil attracts oil and cleanses everything off of your face. And even though you are oily, you don’t need to strip your skin because that will actually cause your skin to become more unbalanced which then leads to more oiliness. Hydration and protection for combo/oily skin and everlasting greaseballs like you and me is still important.

5. It can be relaxing because you have to take the time to thoroughly massage it in. This is one of those times of the day where you have to stop and take a moment for yourself. To take the time to care for yourself is quite rejuvenating and can be something to look forward to after a long day.

How To Use A Cleansing Balm Or Oil

Scoop/pour a small amount to hands and apply to dry face.

Massage slowly and thoroughly, avoiding the eye area. Take your time. Breathe deeply. Thank me later.

Rinse off with warm water or wipe off with a cloth.
