Essential oils as a cleaner?

In another of my posts, I recommended oils as a facial cleansing routine, and it is that looking for information about that, I came across that oils can really do a better job than products that contain other types of ingredients in addition to those that help you. Since Avotre’s products are mostly essential oils, some might be skeptical about trying them for that reason. The fear that can be had when using oils is that they are greasy and that they can clog the pores in the skin but not all oils have that function, I explain …

It will depend on how healthy and balanced your skin is to be able to use oils as cleansers , and if your skin is new to using this method, it is better that you get used to it first, for example, you can start removing make-up with an oil that suits your skin and then continue using your regular cleaning products. There is a key factor in knowing which oil is a good idea and which is not.

 

Comedogenicity. The classification of this will allow you to know which oil can clog your pores and which cannot. It is measured as follows:

1-Does not obstruct

2-Low

3-Moderately low

4-Moderate

5-Medium-high

6-High

Always choose those that have between 0 to 2 comedogenicity.

 

In essential oils, the nutritional value and the properties of the oil should always be on the label. One of them will be linoleic acid and oleic acid. Linoleic acid makes the oil lighter and drier, meaning that it will be absorbed into the skin in a short time and without leaving any residue. And the oleic acid makes the oil heavier and denser, this can clog your pores and lead to acne. If your skin is prone to acne, choose an oil that is high in linoleic acid, and if your skin is drier, choose one that has more oleic acid. But be careful, because hydrating others also dehydrates. You could dilute it with another oil.

I leave you a small guide of oils that can help you depending on the type of skin you have.
