Mainstream skin care advertising and packaging has taught us to stay away from cleansers and other skin care products that contain oil, but don’t believe everything you read. Unless you've read it on Lux Lake, ha.
Essential oil cleansing and moisturizing is excellent for your skin and, believe it or not, can even reduce the amount of surface oil on your face and deep within your pores. Whaaattt??? Yes, you read that right. Because like attracts like, oil can only be dissolved by another oil as they are both fat soluble. Most facial cleansers are water soluble and therefore can't get the job done. 

My new favorite product that has been giving my face some serious glow is the Seabuckthorn Best Skin Ever from Living Libations.
 
I have been using the Seabuckthorn Oil as a moisturizer and a facial cleanser for about a month. Even after the first few uses, my face appeared more fresh. My pores are smaller, I don't have nearly as many breakouts and my overall skin tone has improved. I just look healthier. And of course looking good is great, but it's the way you get there that counts. My favorite part of this oil is the list of ingredients. Unlike most beauty products, all of the elements help to heal and promote healthy, radiating skin. There are no preservatives or chemicals- it's just an epic remedy of beautiful, natural ingredients.


Seabuckthorn: goes deep into the lipid layer of skin and dissolves impurities. It contains omega 3, 6, 7 and 9 which reduce inflammation and redness. 

Golden Jojoba: softens and nourishes the skin and contains high levels of vitamin E, which helps protect skin cells from free radicals and pre mature aging.

Virgin Coconut: an anti-aging dream. Coconut helps to smooth out fine lines and prevents future wrinkles.

Tamanu: repairs damaged skin cells and promotes the growth of new, healthy ones. In addition, it helps to diminish the appearance of acne scars.

Lavender: an epic anti-inflammatory, it helps to treat small cuts and blemishes. Plus, the smell is dreamlike. 

Vetiver: keeps skin looking and feeling youthful and supple.

Grapefruit: tightens pores and works as a toner.

Palmarosa: helps your skin retain moisture and maintain the perfect balance between too much oil or dryness.


HOW TO OIL CLEANSE

-Have hot water and a clean wash cloth ready. For the best results, I like to take my makeup off before oil cleansing.
-Put a pump or two of the Living Libations Best Skin Ever in your palm. Gently rub the oil all over your face and neck.
-Run the wash cloth under hot water and ring it out so that it's not soaking wet but still very hot. I like to rinse and ring it a couple of times so that it is very hot. 
-Place the towel over your face and let sit for 30 seconds. The hot wash cloth will open your pores and the Seabuckthorn Oil will, like a vacuum, suck up all the dirt and impurities. Plus, It will get all the epic ingredients deep into your skin so that they can work their magic.
-Wipe the excess oil off of your face to reveal moisturized and glowing skin.
