None of this means that we need to start dumping our Liz Earle, Sanctuary or L’Occitane facial treatments; but when your skin is angry and sensitized and not responding to your usual treats, give yourself a lovely oil facial and soon you’ll be all calmed down again. A word of caution, though; like all the best facials, it takes a couple of days for the benefits of oil cleansing to emerge. Your skin may break out a little, or be slightly greasier than usual at first. This is just your pores unclogging and releasing the excess skin oils, and once it clears up, your skin will be much happier. Finally, remember that everyone is different, using oil isn’t a one-size-fits-all treatment and I definitely recommend that you seek out more articles to learn about what kind of oils suit your skin best.
