How to do it: Place a hot, damp washcloth on the face for 20 seconds. Remove the washcloth, massage your oil of choice into the skin, let the oil sit for 30 seconds, and use a hot washcloth to gently wipe the oil away. The heat from the washcloth will help to open up your pores and break down makeup.
According to Dr. David E. Bank, director of The Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, try the following oil combinations depending on your skin:
* For normal to dry skin, try argan or shea oil.
* For oily skin, mix a tiny bit of tea tree or peppermint oil with a little castor oil.
* Also, note that you're going to have to experiment with proportions to find the perfect blend for your skin.
