Oil Cleansing in Korean Skin Care

Why do we use oil-based cleansers in Korean skin care?

There are many different ways to cleanse your skin, but if you really want to pamper your skin, a good oil cleanser is the way to go. If you have previously felt that you have cleansed your skin of make-up and impurities after a long day, but still feel that your skin is not completely clean, you will immediately notice the difference after an oil cleanser.

Many may quickly think that an oil cleanser is only suitable for those with a dry skin type, but the truth is that an oil cleanser works equally well for everyone! The delicate, yet powerful nature of oil cleansers is what has made them such a popular product in the skincare industry.

On this page, we'll go over all the benefits of an oil cleanser, what changes you can expect to see in your skin, and how to use it. Here's how to say goodbye to your skin problems and look forward to fresh and radiant skin.

How does an oil-based cleaning work?

Oil cleansers are a relatively new product in the skin care industry and took the world by storm when the products were first launched. This was an innovative product that changed the way we look at facial cleansing. Its popularity came mainly from its magical ability to remove all makeup, dirt from the day and pollution from our surroundings, while leaving the skin deeply clean.

So what exactly is an oil cleanser? An oil cleanser is, as the name suggests, a cleansing oil that has various types of oils as its main ingredients and is designed to cleanse your skin. It will effectively remove make-up, dirt and excess sebum from your skin and will work with your skin's natural oils instead of competing with them. Unlike other types of facial cleansers, an oil cleanser works on the principle that like removes like. It simply means that the oils in the cleansing oil are attracted to the oils on your skin, and this is what makes them so effective at removing makeup, dirt, sunscreen, and other oil-based products.

We've put together a simple guide on how to incorporate oil cleansing into your skin care routine to achieve the best results. If you follow the classic K-Beauty skincare routine that recommends double cleansing, it will be easy to include oil cleansing in your routine.

  1. Start with dry skin.

  2. Take an appropriate amount of oil cleanser in the palm of your hand.

  3. Apply the oil to the face and massage with circular movements.

  4. Moisten the face with a few drops of water to emulsify the oil and get a milky texture.

  5. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

  6. Continue with the rest of your skin care routine (if additional cleansing is included).

Benefits of oil cleaning

Now that we've gone over how oil cleansing actually works, let's take a closer look at its benefits. The reason this type of cleanser has become so popular is because of how effectively it cleans the skin while being gentle. It gives you a cleansing that is unique and can feel revolutionary for your skin care routine already after the first use.

However, the benefits of oil cleansers extend beyond their ability to cleanse the skin. Often the products contain nourishing ingredients that also help moisturize the skin and strengthen its natural barrier. This results in a better balance in your skin, with less dryness and irritation, and brings back a youthful glow where the skin looks refreshed.

Common ingredients in oil cleaning

Depending on the oil cleanser you choose, you will notice that they may contain a variety of ingredients. Like most other K-Beauty skin care products, it is common for them to contain natural ingredients. Natural ingredients have many benefits for your skin and can treat various skin problems.

Tea Tree Oil – Many types of oil cleansers contain tea tree oil, an oil used in many different skin care products. It is known for its antibacterial and antiseptic properties, making it particularly suitable for those with skin prone to pimples or acne. It also has the ability to soothe dry skin and nourish it. Rosehip Oil – When you see an oil cleanser that contains rosehip oil, also known as rosehip oil in Swedish, it is the ingredient for you who want to brighten and even out your skin tone. This oil is also known for its regenerating properties and will also have an anti-aging effect, while increasing skin elasticity and collagen production. Jojoba Oil - Jojoba oil is perfect for those with oily skin, as it is well-known for moisturizing the skin while balancing the skin's natural oil production. Jojoba oil also smoothes the skin's texture, leaving it soft and supple, while providing a healthy dose of antioxidants.
