Double Cleansing for the most amazingly fresh skin

26 Nov

cleansingsystem limeDespite what we are lead to believe about cleansing the skin, using natural vegetable and nut oils for cleansing is one of the best things you can do for your skin. Oil cleansing has been used in many countries as a recognised face cleansing method. Natural oils, when rubbed in, dissolve impurities, environmental ‘dirt’ and makeup, while providing essential nourishment for the skin.

Even oily skins respond well to oil cleansing, because when rubbed into the skin, the oils trick the sebaceous glands into believing they have produced enough oil, and they stop producing an excess.  Oil based cleansers will also not aggravate acne or cause new break outs because they are very gentle on the skin. Ideally, at night, after the face has been exposed to the grime of the day, we should double cleanse, which involves an oil cleanse first, followed by a light, natural cleanser without sulfates or harsh chemicals, and without animal fats. This can either be a vegetable based cleansing bar, or a cleansing gel which penetrates easily to purify the skin deep down and provide other nourishment the skin needs. Then in the morning, all we need to do is either wash our face with warm water, or give it a light cleanse with our cleansing gel. Squeaky clean, but not stripped dry!

Above all, remember that intense cleansing or scrubbing can worsen skin conditions such as acne and inflammation, and expose the skin to unwanted bacteria.

Always be gentle!

Terrific Tea Tree

28 Nov

tea treeTea Tree oil has long been used as a natural antiseptic, but is gathering interest due to some new research that highlights additional benefits.

Pure tea tree oil comes from the leaves of the tea tree plant (not the tea plant…though it was used by 18th century sailors to make tea that smelled like nutmeg). Today, it is a natural essential oil used straight, or in skincare preparations, for it’s anti-fungal, antibacterial and anti-infammatory actions.

Tea tree oil should never be swallowed as it is too strong for the gut lining, and can cause rashes, stomach ache, diarrhoea, vomiting or even hallucinations.

Recent research reveals it’s potential in the control of Golden Staph, and in the significant inhibition of the growth of highly agressive cancer tumours in mice.

All that said, much of this research is in it’s early days, but what we do know is it’s powerful cleansing and anti-inflammatory properties in skincare formulations. If you are so inclined grab some olive oil (great for cleansing) and a few drops of tea tree oil, and make a homemade cleanser. If you can’t be bothered, and want the real deal, try our Rubifresh Cleansing Oil, which contains both olive oil, and lemon tea tree plus a whole bunch of other cleansing and nourishing oils to deep cleanse and rebalance the skin for the ultimate (not stripped dry) squeaky clean.

Olive Oil for Cleansing

7 Nov

Did you know that the very best form of cleansing is based on a staple ingredient in our pantries? Despite what we are lead to believe about cleansing the skin, using natural vegetable and nut oils for cleansing is one of the best things you can do for your skin, and Olive oil is a fabulous place to start.

Oil  cleansing has been used in many countries for centuries as a recognised facial cleansing method. Natural oils, when rubbed in, dissolve impurities, environmental ‘dirt’ and makeup, that are all trapped within the oily pores, while providing essential nourishment for the skin. Even oily skins respond well to oil cleansing, because when rubbed into the skin, the oils trick the sebaceous glands into believing they have produced enough oil, and they stop producing an excess.  Oil based cleansers will also not aggravate acne or cause new outbreaks because they are very gentle on the skin. Olive oil has a special drawing action, drawing impurities out of the skin.

Ideally, at night, after the face has been exposed to the grime of the day, we should double cleanse, which involves an oil cleanse first, followed by a light, natural cleanser without sulfates or harsh chemicals, and without animal fats. This can either be a vegetable based cleansing bar, or a cleansing gel which penetrates easily to purify the skin deep down and provide other nourishment the skin needs.

Then in the morning, all we need to do is either wash our face with warm water, or give it a light cleanse with our cleansing gel. Squeaky clean, but not stripped dry!

Above all, remember that intense cleansing or scrubbing can worsen skin conditions such as acne and inflammation, and expose the skin to unwanted bacteria.
