What Is Oil Cleansing & How Do You Do It? – Tropic Skincare

What Is Oil Cleansing?

Daily cleansing is the cornerstone of clear, healthy skin. As well as removing the build-up of dirt, pollutants, makeup and SPF, facial cleansers help to rebalance and nourish your complexion.

While water-based cleansers remain a go-to choice for many, the oil cleansing method has seen a huge spike in popularity over recent years. But how does it work?

It’s all explained by the basic science of ‘like’ attracting ‘like’ and, therefore, oil attracting oil. So, when you massage a cleansing oil into your face, the oils in the formula bond with the oils and dirt on your skin, dissolving them to leave your complexion clearer.

Although there are lots of cleansing oils on the market, many of them only remove surface-level makeup and debris. Knowing we could do better, we set about creating our next-generation Radiance Cleanser Pore-Refining Cleansing Oil with ultra-fine, oil-soluble ingredients that travel far further into skin, effectively decongesting clogged pores and visibly brightening with every use.

Who Should Oil Cleanse?

If you have oily skin, the thought of using an oil cleanser might seem counter-productive. After all, you’re likely trying to get rid of excess oil rather than add more. But contrary to this common myth, our new Radiance Cleanser is especially great for those with oily or acne-prone skin. The botanical oils in the cleanser cling to the excess sebum in your pores and on your skin’s surface, removing it and rebalancing your complexion in a process known as oil gritting.

Thanks to its 100% natural formulation (in which you’ll find absolutely no petrochemicals or known toxins), Radiance Cleanser is great for all skin types, even sensitive skin. However, it’s particularly effective if you have enlarged or congested pores, areas of unwanted skin texture, or a dull complexion in need of a glow boost.

The Benefits of Oil Cleansing With Our New Radiance Cleanser

  • We’ve used a pioneering, oil-soluble form of vitamin C that travels deeper into pores to neutralise free radicals, brighten and support collagen production.
  • Azelaic acid lifts away impurities and refines skin texture, to leave your complexion soft, smooth and clarified.
  • Packed with flavonoids, antioxidant-rich dragon fruit oil evens skin tone and texture and reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
  • The proprietary blend of ultra-fine fermented oils (olive, sunflower, argan, liquorice, rapeseed, giant angelica root and purple gromwell) work to effectively hydrate, decongest pores and balance your microbiome for healthier, more radiant skin with every use.

How to Oil Cleanse: A Step-By-Step Guide

  1. The perfect pre-cleanse, always use Radiance Cleanser as the first step of your routine in the morning and evening.
  2. Apply 1-2 pumps onto dry skin and use small circular motions to thoroughly massage into your face for at least 30 seconds.
  3. Melt away makeup, excess sebum pollutants and impurities, while paying special attention to areas of texture and clogged pores.
  4. Rinse off with warm water and finish with a revitalising splash of cold water.
  5. Because Radiance Cleanser travels so deeply to decongest pores and remove impurities, it’s incredibly effective as your one and only cleanse.
  6. But if you’ve been wearing makeup or prefer to double cleanse in the evenings, you may want to follow with Smoothing Cleanser or Clear Skies.
