As strange as it may seem, cold-pressed, unrefined vegetable and nut oils make excellent cleansers for greasy skin. They not only impart nutrients to the skin, but dissolve grime and dirt from the surface.
These oils work because when the oils are applied to the skin, the sebaceous glands that produce sebum are tricked into thinking they have produced enough oil and stop making any more.
The best oils to use are the light oils like Hazelnut, Sweet Almond Apricot Kernel and my personal favourite, Jojoba. (More on Jojoba in another post).
