Why & When You Should Use Medik8 Cleansing Oil

Medik8 Lipid-Balance Cleansing Oil 

Most people would be familiar with cleansers or at the minimum soaps. It is important to cleanse your face to unblock the pores, remove dirt and bacteria and keep good skin health.
Standard cleansers are similar to soap where they have surfactants in the water solution that allow the water to easily combine with the dirt and oils on your skin and allow it to rinse away the daily contaminants. 

The difference starts to show when you start using quality cleansers such as O Cosmedics Corrective Cleanser and PeelMedik8's Calmwise Soothing Cleanser , and dermalogica's Ultra Calming Cleanser. These cleansers are high quality cleansers that will allow you to cleanse your face without stripping out all your skins natural oils and resulting in overly dry skin. 

When To Use Medik8 Cleansing Oil?

So when should you use Medik8 Cleansing Oil? Although the above cleansers are a lot milder on your skin than standard soap or supermarket cleanser, there is still a range of skin types that might find they are left feeling dry or even itchy after cleansing. This can be from having barrier impaired skin, specifically dry skin or even if you are someone who has a lifestyle that requires you cleanse your skin multiple times a day such as working FIFO or in the gym industry where you are sweating a lot throughout the day. An oil cleanser such as the Medik8 Cleansing Oil would be of benefit to you.

What Is Different About Cleansing Oil?


Cleansing oil does a similar job to standard cleansers but they don't strip all the oils from your skin. The main ingredient in standard cleansers is surfactants because water doesn't mix with oil readily and a large percentage of a standard cleanser is water so the surfactant is needed. Oil cleansers don't need any surfactants in them because oil readily mixes with oil. This removes the main ingredient that can cause dry, itchy skin. While oil cleansers still cleanse your face and leaves your face feeling fresh, it leaves behind a thin layer of oil that makes your skin feel hydrated instead of dry and irritated. This oil is also designed to stop further water lose from your skin commonly called Trans Epidermal Water Lose (TEWL). 

If you find your feeling very dry after cleansing it is recommended to book a free skin consultation here or if you are located in Perth an in person consultation can be booked here
