Not using Cleansing Oil? You must, it will make a huge difference to your skin!

Posted by Sarah Bacon on


Cleansing oil is gaining popularity as an essential component in the skincare routines of women over 40. This trend is driven by the multiple benefits that cleansing oils offer, particularly for those navigating the complexities of skin that has lived. 

One of the primary benefits of cleansing oil is its ability to effectively remove makeup and impurities without stripping the skin of its natural oils. As women age, their skin tends to produce less sebum, which can lead to dryness and a compromised skin barrier. Traditional foaming cleansers often exacerbate this issue by removing essential lipids, leaving the skin dry and tight. In contrast, cleansing oils work by dissolving impurities and makeup while maintaining the skin's moisture balance. This gentle yet effective cleansing method ensures that the skin remains hydrated and healthy, crucial for middle-aged women who need to combat dryness and sensitivity.

Another significant advantage of cleansing oil is its nourishing properties. Many cleansing oils (like Velettà's Cleansing Oil) are formulated with beneficial ingredients such as antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids. These components can help to repair the skin, reduce inflammation, and protect against environmental damage. For women over 40, who are often concerned with signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone, the nourishing aspects of cleansing oils can provide a dual function of cleansing and treatment, enhancing the overall health and appearance of the skin.

Cleansing oil is also praised for its ability to enhance skin elasticity and firmness. Oils such as avocado oil, grape seed oil and tamanu seed oil (which can all be found in Velettà Cleansing Oil) and are rich in nutrients that promote collagen production and skin regeneration. By incorporating these oils into a daily cleansing routine,  women can support their skin’s natural repair processes, leading to improved elasticity and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles over time. The massaging action used when applying cleansing oil also stimulates blood circulation, further contributing to a more youthful and radiant complexion.

Furthermore, cleansing oils are suitable for all skin types, including sensitive and acne-prone skin. The misconception that oils clog pores has been debunked; in fact, many oils used in cleansing formulations are non-comedogenic and can help balance the skin's oil production. For older women experiencing hormonal fluctuations that can cause acne, cleansing oil offers a gentle, effective solution that does not irritate or over-dry the skin.

Its important to use cleansing oils the right way. You massage cleansing oils into dry skin and then remove the oil with a warm, damp cloth. Your skin will be perfectly clean and nourished.
