3 Most Recommended Cleansing Oils for Men

A BALANCING ACT. Cleansing made easy with an oily alternative

Getting rid of oil in the face by rubbing it with oil. The logic of this might sound a bit off, but cleansing oils to remove excess oil is a real thing. And it works. To be exact, cleansing oils bind the oil and dirt that accumulates on our skin and rinses them away. Or in other words, it works by dissolving “bad” oils with “good” oils. While it does sound like how the typical facial cleanser works, cleansing oils do not disturb the skin’s pH balance and it does not leave the skin dry. The latter is something that everyone using oil-free cleansers often have to deal with, and worse than just the dryness, this will actually cause the skin to produce even more sebum and thereby compounding the problem. Cleansing oils avoid this problem by regulating your skin’s natural oil production. As a result, its nourishing qualities will not only leave your skin clean, but hydrated and moist.
