Normal face cleansers often end up breaking down the natural oils your skin needs to maintain balance, unlike the oil cleansing method which is cleaning your pores of dirt in a more gentle and natural way by replacing the dirty sebum with clean and helpful oils that can nourish and protect the skin.

Coconut oil has many of the same beneficial properties that hemp seed oil has and is perfect for is removing makeup.

It instantly dissolves any makeup which includes waterproof mascara and eye makeup that normally doesn’t wash off as easily. Using the coconut oil first to remove the makeup at the end of the day and wipe it off with makeup wipes to make sure that the skin is completely clean, balanced and moisturized.

We recommend using liquid coconut oil for two reasons: the first reason is that it’s easier to use than solid coconut oil and secondly it is less likely to clog pores.
