Have you ever tried the oil cleansing method? I will admit that my skin is just a little too oily to try it. I gave it a shot, but it wasn't working for me. My skin needs a little less oil and a little more cleanser. If you can't or don't want to do the oil cleansing method, then you may be interested in this DIY makeup removing oil recipe.
This oil is heavy, but you follow it with your regular facial cleanser. This way you get all the benefits of the oil, but it's not too heavy for oily skin. For best results, follow with a toner after washing if you have oily skin. This also works really well for dry skin because it nourishes your skin, and the oils leave your skin feeling soft.
This versatile oil isn't just for your face. You can use it all over your body at night to deeply moisturize your skin. It is a great way to get your hands and feet soft in just one night.
