How to use Cleansing Oil in your Skincare Routine

Using cleansing oil is a popular method for removing makeup and impurities from the skin.

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to use Cleansing Oil:

  1. Start with Dry Hands and Face:

    • Begin with dry hands and a dry face. Cleansing oil is typically applied to dry skin to help break down makeup and impurities.

  2. Apply the Cleansing Oil:

    • Dispense a small amount (usually a pump or two) of cleansing oil into your palm. Gently massage the oil onto your dry face using circular motions. Make sure to cover your entire face, including the areas with makeup.

  3. Massage the Face:

    • Take your time to massage the cleansing oil into your skin. This helps to break down makeup, sunscreen, and other impurities. The massaging action also promotes blood circulation and relaxation.

  4. Emulsify with Water:

    • After massaging for a minute or two, wet your hands with a bit of lukewarm water. Continue massaging your face. The water will emulsify the oil, turning it into a milky texture. This emulsification helps lift away the oil along with the impurities.

  5. Rinse Thoroughly:

    • Rinse your face thoroughly with lukewarm water. Make sure to remove all traces of the cleansing oil. You can use a gentle, pH-balanced cleanser afterward if you feel the need for an extra cleanse.

  6. Pat Dry:

    • Gently pat your face dry with a clean towel. Avoid rubbing, as this can irritate the skin.

  7. Follow Up with Your Skincare Routine:

    • After cleansing, follow up with your regular skincare routine. This may include toner, serum, moisturizer, and any other products you typically use.


  • If you're wearing heavy or waterproof makeup, you might want to let the cleansing oil sit on your face for a minute or two before massaging.
  • Some people use cleansing oils as a part of the double-cleansing method, where they follow up with a water-based cleanser to ensure a thorough cleanse.
  • It's essential to choose a cleansing oil that suits your skin type. If you have sensitive skin, look for a formula with gentle ingredients.

Remember that individual skin types and preferences vary, so you may need to experiment with different cleansing oils to find the one that works best for you.
