Oil Cleansing???

I have been on a journey to improve my skin.  Some strange things are happening to my face and body as I approach thirty and I have to get things under control.



After doing some research I came across the oil cleansing method or OCM. OCM is using castor oil and extra virgin olive oil to cleanse your face.  Please don't knock it until you try it.  I honestly can say I love it. My face feels so good that I didn't even need to put moisturizer on afterwards.  Here is some information from acne.org on the process and other oils you can use as well. Try it and let me know what you think.
  • You take some of your oil blend and massage it into your face 
  • Then, you take a washcloth dampened in warm to hot water (depending on your tolerance--butdon't burn yourself!) and drape it over/hold it up to your face and leave it there until it's around room temperature. 
  • After you're done, gently massage the oil on your face again to free all of the trapped dirt and dead skin cells. Rinse off your washcloth, wring it out and steam your face again.
  • Depending on how freaked out you are by now, you can rinse the washcloth off and keep wipe again to make sure the excess oil is off of your face. Then, splash your face with cold water to close your pores and then pat your face dry.
