Leading Japanese Cleansing Oils (Other Than Fancl!)
Oil cleansers are the most effective, complete makeup removals that are able to even remove thick makeup. This is probably the type most people will be using. However, our skin tends to get stripped of moisture due to the strength of cleansing oils. That is why we often hear that we need to double cleanse. In this week’s part 3 of makeup removals, we are going to look at the correct usage of the cleansing oil, and discover some recommended products!
Are you emulsifying your cleansing oil?
You may be thinking, “Is there a right way to use cleansing oil?” “Am I using the right product for myself?” “Should I be using it just for makeup removal?”
Well, the right method to use it requires only one step! And that is by emulsifying cleansing oil. I know, some or you may already be doing it. However, there are many who remembered the wrong method. You may not need double cleansing with the right method, so be sure to read till the end!
What is emulsification?
It is when we mixing oil-content and water-content together to get a cloudy mixture. Cleansing oils are… well, oil-based, so when mixed with water, its emulsification.
Why is emulsification important? It has something to do with the inability for oil and water to mix.
Cleansing oils are effective in removing makeup that has a high oil content. However, water or warm water doesn’t mix with oil, and is unable to wash the removed makeup off. Therefore, without emulsifying, water alone is unable to remove makeup properly. Cleansing oil is able to remove makeup, but not able to wash off thoroughly will leave a feeling that some makeup still remains on the face. As a result, we often have to do a second cleanse even after using the cleansing oils.
There is where emulsification comes in. The makeup that comes off from emulsified cleansing oil shifts from oil-base (water-in-oil) to water-base (oil-in-water). This makes the removed makeup easy to wash off with water or warm water. That way cleansing can be properly done without feeling the unease of something still left on the face.
How to emulsify
1) Lift the makeup off first by applying the cleansing oil to the whole face.
2) Mix with severals drops of water using the fingers or palms, and cleanse the whole face. The clear oil will turn cloudy. (To ensure the emulsification is complete, mix the warm water and cleansing oil 2~3 times)
3) Wash off the emulsified oil.
Emulsifying cleansing oil should come right before washing off. Take note that using emulsified cleansing oil right from the start might not be able to remove makeup properly. Emulsification is easy and takes only about one minute, so be sure to give this 1 step your attention. With emulsification, there is no need to double cleanse even though it’s cleansing oil.
