DIY Beauty: how to make your own facial cleansing oil
This is the cleansing oil I made during the DIY skin care workshop at Jayeon Miyin in December and I use it whenever I need to remove my makeup these days. It’s similar to those commercial oil cleansers I’ve tried, is very gentle and not too oily but it gets rid of my makeup well. It turns into a sort of milky lotion on contact with water and although it is said to be able to clean the face by itself, I still found myself having to use a soap or foaming facial after using it.
It’s very easy to make and here I share the recipes for two skin types although I figure out it’ll be a lot easier to just get one off the shelves because of the amount of ingredients involved.
Recipe for normal skin/dry skin
To make a 100ml bottle of cleansing oil, you need 40g jojoba oil, 15g apricot kernel oil, 15g sweet almond oil, 4g green tea seed oil, 9g olive liquid (emulsifying agent), 4g vitamin E (synthetic preservative) and 13 drops of essential oil.
Recipe for oily skin
To make a 100ml bottle of cleansing oil, you need 30g apricot kernel oil, 35g sunflower oil, 5g green tea seed oil, 12g olive liquid (emulsifying agent), 4g vitamin E (synthetic preservative) and 13 drops of essential oil.
1. Mix oil and olive liquid
2. Warm up the mixture to around 30 – 40 degree
3. Add essential oil
