SELF-LOVE: Olive oil make-up remover

Oil cleansing can be a total game changer for just about any skin type and condition 😉. Although it may seem counterintuitive to wash your face with oil, it’s actually brilliant. An oil cleanser dissolves excess oils on your skin, as well as makeup and sunblock—without any of the surfactants, harsh ingredients, or necessary preservatives in foaming cleansers. This means that your face gets a super-deep clean, without any “stripping,” or disruption of the skin’s natural microbiome 🤗

After switching to oil cleansing you’ll notice clearer, softer & brighter skin 🤩
:::
If you’re wearing heavier makeup, start by removing that. This regular oil-cleansing routine is enough to remove light makeup, though 😊
:::
Step 1
Rinse face with warm water, then pat dry.
:::
Step 2
Dispense a nickel- to quarter-size amount of oil into palm, spread over both hands, and apply to full face and neck ☺
:::
Step 3
Massage! Take a full minute to work the oil into your skin. This is an opportunity to give your face some love, dissolve some of the tension of the day, and tend to the deeper layers of your skin by increasing circulation of blood and lymph, as you deep clean your pores 😍

Step 4
Warm washcloth removal. This step is key to oil cleansing working for you. Wring out your washcloth, drape it over your full face, and press the warmth into the skin. Next, remove all of the oil with the washcloth. This may require multiple passes. Be thorough but not rough.

What kind of oil best to use?
The most common kitchen-cabinet recipe usually includes a mixture of castor oil and extra-virgin olive oil. A standard one-to-one ratio is a good starting point, but you can adjust as needed depending on your skin type 😊
🔸️Normal Skin: 1:1 ratio of castor oil to extra-virgin olive oil
🔸️Oily Skin: 3:1 ratio of castor oil to extra-virgin olive oil
🔸️Dry Skin: 1:3 ratio of castor oil to extra-virgin olive oil

Contradictory world

We live in weird times, don’t you think? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Times when everything is wrong and has it’s own haters. At least that’s how I feel.
▫️
I feel like whatever used to be good some time ago is now bad. I feel like we, as civilization, do circles when it comes to everyday rules. For example, 20-30 years ago people ate eggs and vegetables from their gardens/farms. It was all rural and eco 🍏🥦🌽🍅🥚. Then the technology moved on and somebody invented all this crap that we put into our food now to make vegetables last longer, be bigger, taste better, be more colorful etc etc. And it was hip. 🔝 People gave up on fresh food straight from farms and went for food made by big companies. „Because it tastes better!”, „Because it cheaper!” etc… And now we go back to point A. Fresh, healthy food is now on top, eating bio and eco stuff is trendy and food made by big companies is bad 👎. I feel like we keep saying that what we have is BAD and that we need something BETTER.
▫️
And it is not only about food. E.g. cosmetics too! There was a time when people used herbs and natural stuff to take care of their skin, then we had big companies make creams for us with all those chemicals inside that apparently made our skin more firm, glowing, younger looking and God knows what else. And now we are back to point A where the less chamicals cream has, the better. Obviously.
▫️
I feel like we no longer know what is good for us and what isn’t.🤷🏼‍♀️ There is such a a mix of various information on every subject that we don’t know what/who to listen to anymore 🤯.
▫️
Like some people say coconut oil is good for us and others are totally against it. Some specialists say silk is good for your hair and others say it isn’t. Some people say that motivating others and trying to make them feel better, to motivate them to reach out for their goals is great and some say that coaching is pure evil and nobody should listen to it.🤷🏼‍♀️
▫️
How do you find yourself in this hectic world nowadays? How should we react to all those contradictory opinions?
