How to Choose the Right Sesame Oil for Your Skin, and why not all Sesame Oils are Created Equally.

When I first heard about using sesame oil for oil cleansing, I couldn't fathom it. Sesame oil was for making stir-frys, right? The pungent scent, the toasted taste, the smell that just overtook all others when you'd go to the local Noodle Box. It didn't make any sense. But sesame oil -the right sesame oil- is amazing for your skin, and in particular, oil cleansing. Not all sesame oils are created equally You don't want to be buying the Fry's Sesame Oil at your local supermarket, so please, put down the car keys and step away from your handbag. As with all oils, and especially commercially produced oils, sesame seeds have to go through some processes before they can be...
