I switch between using oil and honey to cleanse my skin. Oil cleansing, while amazing for your skin, shouldn't be done every single day, as, strange as it seems, can strip the skin if done too often. On days where I have no makeup on, I definitely just use honey. I also never use oil to cleanse in the morning. If you give your skin a nice treatment before bed, a gentle wash in the morning is all you need.
At night I start out by washing my face, either by gentle splashing my face with warm water, or with a hot washcloth on my face to prepare my skin for oil cleansing.
If I have makeup on, I'll remove it with either Sweet Almond oil or Coconut oil, or both. If I'm oil cleansing I'll massage the oil all over my face with my hands and remove the residual eye makeup with cotton balls. If not, a quick wipe with oil on a cotton ball on my face, and more thoroughly on the eyes. If I'm using honey, I massage a good amount all over my face, and wipe it clean. Normally this is moisturizing enough, but if I feel the need for something more I'll follow this with an application of my DIY Whipped Coconut Oil and Honey. I just apply it in areas like my chin, nose and troubled areas of my forehead and leave it overnight.
In the morning I usually just wash my face with warm water and go, but if I'm feeling oily, I will sometimes cleanse my face with honey or moisturize/cleanse with the DIY Whipped Coconut Oil and Honey (and wash it off, I don't leave it on in the day) I also keep my lips healthy and moisturized by regular lipbalm application. Morning and night, and before I apply makeup. I am currently using the wholefoods Organic Lipbalms, my favorite is Peppermint, but I also occasionally use the Vanilla/honey one.
