Pourquoi utiliser une huile démaquillante ? Et laquelle choisir ?

I get a lot of feedback from women who are trying a make-up remover oil for the first time, discovering make-up remover oil 5e635e;">the efficiency and comfort provided and regret not having tried sooner. I take advantage of this article to indeed state the benefits of cleansing oils while also introducing the broader concept of double cleansing according to the Korean layering.

Make-up remover oils do not only have the function of removing make-up but are also a real care for your skin with many softening, nourishing, lipid-replenishing, gentle exfoliating benefits (…), a treatment whose benefit and pleasure we feel (yes, we can tell) from the first application.

Makeup removal with oil

More than makeup removal, the elimination of fatty substances

Oil cleansing is much more than just removing makeup because it certainly allows you to clean the face of makeup but also of all other fatty substances received or emitted by the skin and in particular the sebum and the all the steps of Korean layering in our article “Face Routine: the steps of Korean Layering”.

Gentle and effective natural cleansing

Unlike other make-up removers such as micellar water which very often contains alcohol which is effective but very aggressive for the skin, make-up remover oil naturally adheres easily to fatty substances such as make-up (even waterproof), fatty impurities and sebum. , to detach them from the skin and dissolve them effortlessly.

The emulsifying action of the components of the oil then allows miscibility with water to facilitate the removal of all these fatty substances when rinsing, thus leaving a clear, cleansed skin without any drying.

A facial treatment suitable for all skin types, even oily or combination

Contrary to popular belief, the use of makeup remover oils is not limited to dry skin but is well suited to all skin types: oily skin by nature also has everything to benefit from the elimination of fatty substances with these oils!

Combination and oily skin should, however, avoid comedogenic oils, mainly mineral oils (from petrochemicals) as well as certain vegetable oils such as linseed, coconut and cocoa oils.

Vegetable cleansing oils

A lipid-replenishing facial treatment, the joy of dry skin!

Vegetable oils, rich in essential fatty acids (omega 3, 6, and/or 9), also nourish the skin, maintain and strengthen its hydrolipidic film, a real protective barrier against external aggressions and against skin dehydration.

Fine vegetable oils are easily assimilated by skin lacking lipids, restore this hydrolipidic film and the results are felt from the first use: combination and dry skin are see relief from tightness, cracking, and dryness which would on the contrary be increased by other non-greasy and aggressive makeup removers.

A treatment rich in antioxidant vitamins with anti-aging effects!

All precious vegetable oils are rich in antioxidants, vitamins A and C, which prevent and help fight skin aging through their specific firming, regenerating, depigmenting, revitalizing, anti-wrinkle, anti-stain, anti-imperfection actions…
