Like-Dissolves-Like Cleansing Oil

Even oily skin will love this DIY cleanser from Glow: The Nutritional Approach to Naturally Gorgeous Skin.
Yield: 4 ounces
Author: Nadia Neumann


  • 4-ounce dropper bottle


  • Add all ingredients to a 4-ounce dropper bottle, put the cap on and give it a good shake to blend everything together.
  • To use: Splash some warm water on your face, then gently pat dry.
  • Dispense a quarter-size amount of oil into the palm of your hand and gently massage it into your face for 1-2 minutes, especially focusing on those areas with clogged pores.
  • Wet a washcloth with hot water (you want it as hot as possible without burning your skin), ring it out and lay it on top of your face.
  • Quickly lay a second dry washcloth on top to trap the moisture and heat. Let it sit for for 1-2 minutes, or until the wet washcloth cools.
  • Repeat, using the dry washcloth to gently wipe your skin at the end.
  • If your skin feels tight afterwards, follow up with a small amount of moisturizer. However, you likely find that you don’t need to moisturize at all since the cleansing oil will settle into the skin, providing moisture.


If you have dry skin or find this mixture too drying, dilute it by adding more avocado oil. Reduce the amount of hazelnut oil in the next batch.
If you have oily or acne-prone skin, swap the avocado oil for grapeseed or pumpkin seed oil.
