You're Probably Oil Cleansing Wrong. Here's How To Get It Right
Here at mbg, we believe that beauty is uniquely yours. In our video series Bare Your Beauty, we break down various techniques, rituals, and how-to’s designed to help you feel good in your own skin, whether your goal is to de-stress, update your skin care regimen, or try a new look.
Have you ever tried oil cleansing? Holistic esthetician, mbg Collective member, and health coach Britta Plug—who has been taking care of her clients' skin using a natural and holistic approach for more than 13 years—has a few good reasons you should give it a shot. Even if you've done it before or do it regularly, chances are you can up-level your oil-cleansing game. According to Plug, oil cleansing long term can:
- help reduce chronic blackheads
- keep the skin's microbiome vibrant and healthy
- easily dissolve makeup, dirt, and sunblock
Below, Plug shows us the step-by-step, insider technique that has changed the game for so many of her clients (pro tip: it involves a prop you probably have at home), why you should avoid coconut oil, and her preferred oil-cleansing product in this video. Happy cleansing!
