I love sharing natural skin care tips.

Unrefined cold pressed oils have a lovely nourishing action on the skin; simply because they have so many benefits.

They help to keep our skins natural moisturising factor perfectly balanced.

Below are some simple, yet effective cleansing oil recipes:

TYPES OF CLEANSING OIL

There are a number of lightweight, nourishing oils available for a sensitive skin.

For a dry skin, a thicker more occlusive oil could be added to your formula, to make it more nourishing.

  • Avocado oil
  • Macadamia oil
  • Sunflower

Castor oil is a great oil for helping to draw out impurities in the skin, it has wonderful natural cleansing properties.
