Fall… The Season of Change
Cleansing vs. Hydrating Facial Oils
With Fall comes cooler weather and less humidity, which means dry air and dry skin. To avoid the “Fall Flaking” try switching up your skincare routine by adding oils, both cleansing and hydrating. 
The Difference: Cleansing Facial Oils are nourishing, and emollient oils used to remove debris that would be left on your skin and loosens the dirt clogged into your pores. Oil cleansing is a great and gentle way to remove your makeup, rid your pores of dirt and bacteria as well as removing blockages. After you massage the oil on your face for about a minute, you can go and cleanse with your favorite traditional cleanser afterward. 
Which oils work the best? According to The GoldenRx on YouTube, it’s best to use oils high in Linoleic acid if you have oily skin. If you have drier skin, it’s great to use oils that are high in oleic acid. With the help of News Medical.net and This is Feel blog, here is a list of all the oils you can use, so you can select the best for you and your skin. .
