Why should you use Nanaglow’s Sunflower Cleansing Oil?

What is oil Cleansing? Oil cleansing is a deep cleansing method in which you would use an oil based cleanser to wash your skin without stripping off all your skin's natural moisture. This method MELTS all your makeup off your skin (even on your eyes!!), removes dirt, oil, environmental pollution and sunscreen.  Why is it important?  It is super important to remove the first layer of makeup, dirt and oil off your skin so that your other skincare products penetrate better into your skin.

Skin Types vs Skin conditions

It is important to distinguish the difference between a skin type and a skin condition. You cannot modify your skin type, you are born with it and it will most likely stick with you your whole life.
