Glossit: Cleansing Oil - Dry / Aging Skin
Glossit: Cleansing Oil - Dry / Aging Skin
Did we just see you raise a brow? Oil + Cleanser, that’s like, an oxymoron, right? Actually, no!
We’ve been taught to avoid the word oil or the use of it regarding cleansing our entire lives. We’re here to tell you that this belief is a big mistake. Oil & water are not besties! We’ve known that our entire lives too. You’ve seen it in parking lots after rain fall, boats leaking oil into the lake, jumping in the pool with tanning oil on. Oil just sits on top of that water, never being dissolved. Like attracts like which is good when you’re talking about facial cleansing.
Our premium organic oil cleansers were created with all of that and more in mind. Each oil that is placed into every bottle of Glossit is specifically known to produce an unclogging effect, dissolving all the excess sebum, makeup and oils that have settled into your pores. When properly applied to the neck and face, these oils start to dissolve these and other impurities from your pores. Once cleansed & then rinsed all you see is deliciously dewy, super-hydrated skin. All you feel is soft and clean.

Heat a clean rag in semi-hot water. You want to make sure to use hot water but be careful to not burn yourself. Just enough heat to open the pores. Wring out your rag & place it on face, pressing firmly, for about 30 seconds. This will help open your pores which will help the oil get in deep and dissolve oil & dirt. Pump 1 - 2 pumps of oil into the palm of your hand, briefly rub together with your opposing hand & press the oil gently into the surface of your skin. Add additonal pump of oil if cleansing neck. Start to gently massage the oils into your skin in an upward/outward & circular motion. Let the oil absorb into your skin for another 30 seconds. Heat your clean rag under hot water again under semi-hot water. Wring the water out once more & in the same gentle, upward motion, remove the oils from your skin. Rinse your rag once more & sweep the rag over the face once more to remove any residual oils. Follow up with a good toner.

Sunflower Seed Oil - Helianthus annuus - Rich in oleic acids, vitamins A, D, & E with skin-loving lecithin and unsaturated fatty acids. Sunflower seed oil helps neutralize free-radicals which can damage healthy skin cells.
Sweet Almond Oil - Prunus dulcis – Sweet Almond oil is an effective emollient for moisturizing the skin and helps soften and sooth dry & aging skin. This oil is also known for its ability to calm any inflammatory skin conditions and has shown promise to do wonders on broken capillaries and renew dead skin cells too!
Kukui Nut Oil - Aleurites moluccanus – Kukui Nut oil is, hands down, the best oil for alleviating dry skin. It has an unclogging effect on the pores. It’s also great for smoothing wrinkles and fine lines like crow’s feet. Once absorbed (which is easy for the skin to do with this oil), Kukui Nut neutralizes the free radicals which can exacerbate aging conditions of the skin. Skin that is dry doesn’t have enough moisture content to protect it from outside elements like sunburn (cover up already!) and windburn. Kukui Nut will alleviate these conditions as well.
Hemp Seed Oil - Cannabis Sativa – Hemp seed oil helps balance the skin’s sebum production which is perfect for oily & acne-prone skin types. This green goddess of oils is exceptionally rich in essential omega fatty acids & proteins making it one of the most nutritional oils available. Because of its moisturizing & hydrating properties, hemp seed oil effectively combates fine lines & wrinkles. In fact, hemp seed oil is SO good it can help prevent cellular damage due to its high content of omega-3 and omega-6.
Castor Oil – This dirt dissolving buster cleanses the pores and removes makeup…ALL OF IT! However, there are rules to using this oil. Moderation (yep, just like everything else). Castor oil can be drying so each oil blend is different and how much of this oil is used in each formula varies depending on type of skin. Another factor here is specific combination per skin type. All of the ingredients used in our oil cleansers will prove to be the best combination with your skin type in mind.
Aloe Vera – Aloe vera can treat and prevent minor infections of the skin. It also promotes new skin cell growth, minimizes scarring, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and is very hydrating. It also helps remove dirt & makeup without having to tug at the skin to do get the job done.
Jojoba Oil - Simmondsia chinensis – Jojoba oil is actually not an oil, it is a wax. But this wax is not the type of wax you imagine when you hear the word. This oil is temperature sensitive and is only waxy when it hits temperatures below 19.5 degrees Fahrenheit. This oil is non-clogging and has the same absorption properties that are similar to our skin’s own sebum. Its use can adjust the skin’s sebum production by balancing like with like making it very compatible with skin.
Argan Oil - Argania spinosa – Pimples & acne don’t stand a chance against argan oil. Neither does overly oily skin. In fact, Argan works accordingly to all skin types as it will balance sebum levels without adding more or stripping away where needed. Such a nice relationship. On top of balancing sebum production, it also has some very sweet additional benefits like anti-aging, increases elasticity and wrinkle reduction.
Rosemary EO - Rosmarinus offcinalis – Rosemary is a warming, decongesting, antifungal, anti-wrinkle skin-saver. Its ability to moisturize and maintain the skin’s moisture level is beyond a no-brainer as to why it’s found in this formula. Rosemary also boasts other noble uses like: collagen production, free-radical elimination, skin toning and balancing, cell regeneration, circulation and has also shown benefits to treating age spots. So yeah…no-brainer!
Lemon EO - Citrus limon – On top of smelling delightful, Lemon hydrates the skin and helps reduce cell & tissue damage through its antioxidant action…and as if that weren’t enough, it also detoxes the skin and adjusts the pH levels. This gives our skin a fighting chance to heal and move on. This nourishing skin-loving oil works well as an anti-inflammatory and also shares the spotlight with its anti-wrinkle actions as well. Very nice.
Clary Sage EO - Salvia sclarea – Clary Sage & Rosemary go hand in hand, working synergistically as an anti-wrinkle formula as well as fighting acne. Its name literally means, “clear.”
Rosemary Antioxidant CO2 Extract - An all-natural preservative created from the extract of whole fresh rosemary leaf through the CO2 extraction process which helps maintain the integrity of the base constituents of the oil itself & the end-product by stabilizing its shelf life.
