Abyssinian Oil is a natural seed oil with an ultra light, non-greasy skin feel. It has a unique molecular structure not found in any other naturally occurring substance. It contains a high percentage of unsaturated C22 fatty acids, making it highly resistant to oxidation.
I use it as ana anti-aging oil skin cleanser and as a makeup remover. My recipe is extremelly simple and drastically effective and safe!!
You will need a small bottle of abyssinian oil and a few drops of rose’s essential oil..that’s it!!!
Why using an oil based makeup remover?
Oil-based cleansers work differently than foaming cleansers.
Oils, thanks to their hydrophobic state, surround dirt and product residue before water washes them away (meaning they don’t like water, so they try to get closer to dirt…which is dry), leaving necessary your skin coating fat intact.
Foaming cleansers, on the other hand, contain detergent that dissolve oil and dirt and pull lipids from the skin cells.)
Cleansing oils are much better for dry skin than foaming cleansers because they protect the lipids that dry skin needs to remain hydrated. In addition, oils are able to remove stubborn makeup and sunscreen, so you also get the benefits of a makeup remover in the same bottle. And unlike other cleansers, it’s best to apply cleansing oil with a cotton pad, and then rinse three times with warm water to remove all of the residue. And best of all, you can skip the moisturizer after cleansing with oil (unless you are super dry)—just don’t forget the sunscreen!
