Step 1: Double cleansing

The double cleansing method is paramount in this routine. It ensures that you remove all makeup leftovers and dirt sitting on your skin. 

DIY Oil-based cleanser:

Start by applying a little bit of an oil-based cleanser on your skin, and wiping it with some cotton. This is important even if you have oily skin. The oil will remove all the grime, and also excess natural sebum.

The recipe: Just use a small container to mix one part castor oil and 4 parts of carrier oil, it could be argan or hemp seed oil

Now that you've removed makeup leftovers, it is time to make sure no debris is left sitting there. Just mix the following ingredients, shake the bottle before each use and rub 2 pumps of the product on damp skin, then rinse well. 

The recipe: In a soap dispenser use 2 parts rice water, one part liquid castile soap, and a couple of drops of your essential oil of choice.

Step 2: Exfoliation
