Here are a few websites that I visited to find out more information:
The Oil Cleansing Method , Simple Mom, and Nitty Gritty on the oil cleansing method
OCM consists of using castor oil and another carrier oil (Olive Oil being the most popular) to cleanse the face giving you clear soft skin, reducing blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and cysts. Castor oil is the main cleanser in the mix, it is an anti inflammatory oil with healing and cleansing properties, because of its high potency and thickness is should be used with another lighter oil, your skin type will determine how much oil you will use in your mix. I found that most of the mixtures were the same on different sites but you can mix accordingly.
Oily skin: 3 parts castor oil, 1 part carrier oil
Normal skin: equal parts castor oil and carrier oil
Dry skin: 1 part castor oil, 3 parts carrier oil
My skin is normal so I mixed the equal parts of the the oils together and even added a little Jojoba oil to mine. I have been very pleased with the results, at first I was skeptical, how in the world could oil clean my skin but I gave it a try anyways following the directions as it was.
1. I massage the oil into my face making sure to get my neck also.
2. I take a hot towel and lay it across my face until it gets cool, I do that 3 times then take the warm towel and gently wipe the rest of the oil away. This process opens the pores and draws out dirt and other impurities.
3. Then I take my hands and cup cold water onto my face closing the pores back up.
4. Add moisturizer if you want, mine of choice is just a little but of mango butter.
In the morning I just wipe my sleepy eyes and then I am good to go.
Of course I have to post pictures of my baby smooth skin and whiteheadless chin that has not had to be scrubbed in several days.
up by my lip I had terrible whiteheads and had
to make sure to scrub there and the
bottom of my lip. Not a whitehead in sight.
Seriously, take a look at that baby soft skin,
I love it. And no this photo
has not been altered.
Give it a try and see if you like it, if you already use it let me know how you like it.
