Spanish Sage Cleansing Oil Tutorial

Spanish Sage Cleansing Oil Tutorial

You’ve read all about why Newton + Co’s Spanish Sage Cleansing Oil is a great product that can replace your traditional facial cleanser, but did you know that there’s also a special technique for using it? If you’re new to cleansing oils, follow the steps below for a refreshing aromatherapy ritual that will leave your skin beautifully cleansed and moisturized.

How to Use Cleansing Oil

Step 1: Place 1-2 pumps of cleansing oil into your hands. Massage the cleansing oil into your dry face using your fingertips for 20-30 seconds.

Step 2: Place a washcloth under a faucet and moisten it with hot water (as hot as you can stand). Wring out the excess water and lay the wet cloth onto your face.

Step 3: Lightly pat the cloth against your skin. Wait 15-20 seconds for the cloth to open up your pores. Enjoy the heavenly smells emanating from your cleansing oil. Repeat blotting of face with hot cloth.

Cleansing oil is gentle and versatile enough to use both at night and in the morning. For best results, follow up with a light moisturizer like our Spanish Sage Face Mist to tone and refresh the skin.

What to Expect

While cleansing oils are incredibly effective, be patient - it’s not likely that you’ll see dramatic results overnight. Cleansing oils reach deep into your skin, where other cleansers may not have been able to reach, which may result in bringing hidden impurities to the surface before fully clearing them up. Stick with your routine - we recommend using the oil for at least ten days to start seeing changes in your skin.

Once you do begin to see results, you’ll wonder why you didn’t start using cleansing oils earlier. A quick search of cleansing oil reviews (for example, Burt’s Bees Coconut Cleansing Oil) reveals that these products really do work - both men and women are raving about how their skin is smoother, clearer, and more moisturized since using cleansing oils, while the oil itself is praised for its smells, textures, and effectiveness.

Those who have made the switch to cleansing oil swear by it - and now that you’re in the know, we bet you’ll never look back at the harsh chemical facial cleansers you’ve been using all these years. We’re proud to offer you our Spanish Sage Cleansing Oil, a facial cleanser that is better for both you and the environment. Made from all-natural oils and botanicals and inspired by adventures, we here at Newton + Co believe in the power of simple, time-tested ingredients to invigorate and inspire you on all your journeys.

Why You Need a Cleansing Oil — Spanish Sage Cleansing Oil

Why You Need a Cleansing Oil — Spanish Sage Cleansing Oil

Cleansing oils have become so popular recently that they are on track to replace the traditional facial cleansers within your skincare regimen. While it may seem counter-intuitive to use oil to remove dirt and, well, oil from your skin, dermatologists are praising cleansing oils as being more effective, more moisturizing, and better for your skin than the variety of harsh and chemical-based products widely available.

What is this witchcraft? Oil just makes things oily!

This isn’t some crazy scheme - it’s actually based on science. The expression “like dissolves like,” commonly used in chemistry, explains how solvents (like oil and water) interact with each other. This principle explains that solvents (another term for liquids) can dissolve other solvents only if they are similar. For example, this is why oil and water don’t mix, but two different oils do. Cleansing oils work by removing dirt and sebum from your pores, while simultaneously replacing the dirty oil with the beneficial oils and botanicals found in your cleansing oil.

Who can use it?

The great news about cleansing oil is that it works on virtually all kinds of skin. Gone are the days of standing in the face wash aisle for an hour, tearing your hair out over whether you need a cleanser for oily, dry, acne, combination, or mystery skin. Cleansing oil is gentle enough for sensitive skin, and its science-based approach means it will cleanse oily, dry, and acne-prone skin equally well. Cleansing oils are also more moisturizing than traditional cleansers, and often contain very few or no surfactants. Surfactants are included in body products as detergents and foaming agents, but they can be harsh on your skin or even produce an allergic reaction. Many people who make the switch to cleansing oils find they need to use a facial moisturizer much less or not at all.

That having been said, it is important to choose the right cleansing oil. Some oils work better than others (for example, experts recommend against using canola or corn oil from your kitchen) and different varieties will have a wide array of botanical ingredients for you to choose from, depending on what you need from a cleanser.

Choosing a cleansing oil

There are still many choices of cleansing oils for dry, oily, acne-prone, and sensitive skin, as well as a combination thereof. In fact, cleansing oils often contain a more customized and effective array of options than chemical-based cleansers. For dry skin, look for products that contain heavier oils like avocado, sunflower, or jojoba. For oily skin, stick to ingredients that are on the lighter side, such as grapeseed, argan, and coconut. For acne-prone and sensitive skin, opt for cleansers that contain both light and calming ingredients for cleansing and soothing, such as argan, lavender, rosemary, and grapeseed. As with any new skin product, be sure to perform an allergy test before use by applying your cleansing oil to a small patch of skin.

At Newton + Co, we’ve carefully formulated our signature Spanish Sage Cleansing Oil to effectively cleanse and moisturize all skin types. With a castor oil base and other all-natural oils like black cumin seed, chia seed, camellia, borage, sage, myrrh, and lavender, our Spanish Sage Cleansing Oil is packed with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. Black cumin seed oil in particular is a powerful oil - naturally antibacterial, it not only aids in fighting acne, psoriasis, and eczema, it’s also been proven to soften, strengthen, and firm skin. Cleopatra was reported to use black cumin seed oil to maintain her beautiful hair, skin and nails.

All-natural, rooted in history, and modernized by science - it’s no secret why cleansing oils have become the new go-to over traditional facial cleansers. We highly recommend jumping on the bandwagon and seeing what all the fuss is about, and we’re sure you’ll fall in love with cleansing oils after seeing the clear effects.

Matte Hair Clay Tutorial

Matte Hair Clay Tutorial

Our Palo Santo Hair Clay is not your average pomade. Like everything we do, we chose to make something innovative and something that could accompany you on every adventure your day takes you on.

First, it’s called hair clay for a reason -- it’s quite literally made with clay (along with beeswax, natural plant oils, and other natural ingredients). We use a mix of bentonite clay and kaolin clay, both known throughout the centuries for their positive effects on skin and hair. Unlike some pomades made with petroleum byproducts, our Matte Hair Clay protects and restores your hair with natural minerals and vitamins. Beyond being free to toxic chemicals, it's even cruelty-free. 

Second, while most hair products land somewhere on the spectrum between light hold and strong hold, our Matte Hair Clay can do both. Mix with water for a natural, messy look, or mix with water in your palm before applying to create an all-day hold. Whether you're looking to add texture to soft fine hair, tame curly hair, go for the messy beach-look, or rock a slick-back, this is the product to get you there.

We spent months mixing, testing, and perfecting by hand. This is the hair product to go on every adventure with you. It's versatility and slim design is a must in every backpack or purse. 

How To Apply Palo Santo Matte Hair Clay

Step 1: For best results, apply the Matte Hair Clay when hair is still damp. If you’ve just stepped out of the shower, run a towel through it once or twice being careful not to absorb too much water.

Step 2: Using your fingers, scoop out a dime-sized chunk of Matte Hair Clay (a little goes a long way). For longer hair, of course, you will need to apply more.

Step 3: Run your other hand through your damp hair (the hand without Matte Hair Clay on it), or run it under the sink to get it damp. Then, rub your two palms together until the Matte Hair Clay is spread thinly across your hands. If you leave any chunks, they’re going to stick in your hair. For a lighter hold, dilute with extra water when spreading the clay in your palms.

Step 4: Run your hands through your hair, spreading the Matte Hair Clay evenly throughout and shaping your hair for the desired look. The more diluted the clay is in your hair when applying, the messier and more natural the hold will be. The thicker the clay is when applying, the stronger the hold will be.

Step 5: Wash the excess Matte Hair Clay off your hands, towel 'em off, and hit the road.

For best results, apply daily and go a few days between shampooing and conditioning your hair. The natural minerals and vitamins in our Matte Hair Clay will keep your hair looking healthy between washes without stripping its natural oils. To wash out the Matte Hair Clay, just use your normal shampoo or conditioner in the shower, leaving it in for a few extra minutes while you scrub up (or scrub a friend if you prefer).
