The Oil Cleansing Method

Keeping it simple is usually best when it comes to caring for your skin. The first step to beautiful clear skin is cleansing it morning and night.

Many are scared to use an oil cleanser, they believe they need something to strip all natural oils from their skin for it to be clean and healthy, yet we need to keep in mind that "Like dissolves Like", meaning "Oil dissolves Oil".

Have you ever tried mixing water & oil? You cannot! Further yet, think of our skin's chemistry, your skin naturally lubricates itself throughout the day with the natural oils that it produces. This oil called sebum, helps to lubricate and also protects against environmental damage and moisturizes the skin to its optimum health. 

Properly functioning skin is clear and it glows. Learning how to work with your skin instead of against it, will save you stress, money and issues with your complexion.

The Oil Cleansing Method works on all skin types, including those with unrelenting breakouts. The oils will start dissolving oils that have hardened within your pores (like blackheads) and eventually your skin will balance itself out and be clear and beautiful.

So are you wondering how you would cleanse your face with an oil?

Here are some tips on how to do it!

  1. Get a soft microfiber washcloth, the "Immaculate Face Oil Cleanser from Poet's Garden Alchemist" and hot, running water.

  2. Pour two to three pumps of the Immaculate Face Oil Cleanser into the palm of your hand.

  3. Massage the cleansing oil into your face in circular motions. This will remove all dirt, makeup and toxins from the skin so you will not need another cleanser after the oil.

  4. Make sure to rub the oil around areas that are congested with blackheads, as the oil will help to loosen the harden oil that caused the blackhead on the first place. Place the microfiber washcloth under running hot water (hot water is best as it helps dissolve the rest of the oil and dilates the pores for a deeper cleansing experience). Wipe your face with the hot wet microfiber washcloth in circular motions until there is no more oil on your skin. Your skin should feel hydrated, without any oil residue, and very soft!


It is that simple! At first you might experience a little purging if your skin was congested on the first place or if you had a lot of toxins trapped within your skin. This will fade away with time, and the more you stick with it! Soon enough, you will have flawless, beautiful and glowing skin.

If you suffer from over production of oil and acne, adding an oil cleanser will eventually balance your oil production as your skin only overproduces sebum due to dryness & dehydration.

If your skin is dehydrated or dry, it will overproduce more oil to try to balance the lack of oil & water. So by adding an oil to your routine & drinking a lot of water, your skin will eventually stop producing as much oil as it will no longer need it.
