How to Be Cool: Beauty #1

Tired of hiding those zits? Well my fellow cool people, I have a very unusual yet valid home remedy to help you stay cool and help your face stay clear! What is it you may ask?

OIL!!!

How many people imagined slapping thick oil on your already greasy face? I know that it sounds crazy, and I thought the same thing as well, until I tried it. As most of my readers know, I just started a new job. Well, the job is 8 hours of intense hard labor in harsh conditions, and my face and skin has gone haywire! So like most of us do, I hit the internet for a solution to my pimply skin, and one of the solutions that I found was using oil to wash your face instead of a harsh acne product. The articles reasoned that the reason that our skin makes oil is because we need it; however using harsh chemicals dries out our skin and makes it even more prone to breakouts. Using a penetrating oil, like olive oil or grapeseed oil (put away the vegetable oil!) to wash your face will give you smooth skin and within a matter of days, you'll see a difference. All of my little white head pimples were gone in 2 days (I kid you not!) I tried this on my brother, who has acne, for one day and after that one use, we could already seen a difference in his skin!

It's also really good for repairing your hair. I walked in on my housemate pouring it all over her head once. It was quite a strange day haha :)

Such a great post, I love your blog!

Interesting way to get rid of zits. I'm glad it's working for you. I can see how the oil would penetrate the skin to moisturize. Hey, congrats on your new job, Sweet!

I read about the olive oil thing but was a little skeptical too. I didn't use it but this would be great for le boyfriend. He works in the heat, lifting and such but he can't use acne stuff because it dries his skin out then the next he sweats and it stings (not fun!) Thanks for the helpful tip and glad to hear it works!

how often do you do it?

Bree said...

I use it once every day. Sometimes I wash with a cleanser like Aveeno and then rinse with the oil. It has definitely given me a "glow" as my mom and boyfriend call it haha

I use this for eye make-up remover ( just no pure). I followed :D
