Pourquoi utiliser une huile démaquillante ? Et laquelle choisir ?

I get a lot of feedback from women who are trying a cleansing oil, discover efficiency and comfort brought and regret not having tried sooner. I take advantage of this article to state the benefits of cleansing oils while also introducing the broader concept of double cleansing according to Korean layering.

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

Oil make-up removal

More than make-up removal, the elimination of fatty substances

Cleansing with oil is much more than simple make-up removal because it certainly allows you to cleanse the face of make-up but also of all other fatty substances received or emitted by the skin and in particular the sebum and the pollution.

This oily phase cleansing, that is the term, is part of the double cleansing of Korean layering which allows in two stages to cleanse the skin well of make-up residues and other fat-soluble impurities then with the stage of the cleanser water-soluble impurities (such as perspiration or dust). find 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 that is effective but very aggressive for the skin, make-up remover oil naturally adheres easily to fatty substances such as make-up (even waterproof), greasy impurities and sebum. , For 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 clear, cleansed skin, without any drying out.

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

Contrary to popular belief, the use of cleansing oils is not limited to dry skin but is well suited to all skin types: oily skin also by nature has everything to gain 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 delight 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 the skin lacking in lipids, restore this hydrolipidic film and the results are felt from the first use: combination and dry skin is relieved of tightness, cracking and dryness which would on the contrary be increased by other non-greasy and aggressive make-up removers.

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

All valuable vegetable oils are rich in antioxidants, vitamins A and C, which prevent and help combat skin aging through their specific firming, regenerating, depigmenting, revitalising, anti-wrinkle, anti-blemish, anti-blemish actions, etc.
