No Ordinary Balance Cleansing Oil
No Ordinary Balance Cleansing Oil
No Ordinary Balance is a restorative and balancing blend of cleansing oils packed with advanced cellular renewing properties and antioxidants. It will effortlessly melt away makeup, even waterproof mascara and impurities and leave your skin feeling unbelievably soft and clean.
Using natural oils in a specific combination to cleanse and balance the skin’s natural oil, this results in nourished and moisturised skin.
No Ordinary Cleansing Oil combines oils with higher linoleic acid content.
When it comes to oils no two oils are the same so the most important factor in determining the correct oil for your skin is the ratio of linoleic acid (LA), to oleic acid (OA) in the chemical composition of each oil. The reason our skin’s sebum becomes thick and sticky leading to clogged pores is the lack of linoleic acid. Using oils high in linoleic acid in your daily skincare routine provides the balance needed to maintain healthy and clear skin.
How to use:
Use 2-3 pumps on a pad to remove eye makeup, then about 5 pumps of cleansing oil onto your palm and with fingertips massage in a circular motion into face and neck. Use a hot face cloth to wipe away the oil and dirt.
To deep cleanse your skin, after massaging oil in apply a hot cloth over the face and leave for two minutes before wiping away. You want it to be hot enough to further soften your pores and remove the oil carrying impurities, but not to scold yourself! Wipe gently, rinse well, and repeat two or three more times.
Give your skin a few days to adjust and adapt to being clear of blockages; keep in mind that the new oil coming from your skin is actually a good sign and will balance out very shortly. Once you remove the old plugs from your pores, they will begin functioning properly again. You'll find all impurities that have been pulled out onto the skin surface will subside, leaving your skin glowing.
