Oil Cleansing Method?

Hey Ladies and Gents,

Its your girl D.Wils back with another informational post about the “Oil Cleansing Method”. Are you tired of oily skin or dry peeling skin, well I may just have a solution to your oily skin! I too have skin that can be oily or dry depending on the weather I have tried a few products to try to fix the problem, but sadly they didnt have any effect. I won’t give names of products because what didn’t work for my skin may work for yours, but if you have tried quite a few products they are not working for you this just may help. Yesterday I did some research looking for an at home remedy that may help with my skin problems and I came across the “Oil Cleansing Method”. The “Oil Cleansing Method” or for short O.C.M. recipe is very simple and if you don’t have these at home you can find them at any grocery store. This O.C.M recipe consist of two things 1. Castor Oil and the 2nd is a list you can choose from which is Jojoba Oil, Sun Flower seed Oil, or Extra Virgin Olive oil. I know your probably thinking wait, So to clear oily skin you add more oil? Well I thought the very exact same thing but Castor oil is made for cleansing and Jojoba Oil, Sun Flower Seed oil and Extra Virgin Olive oil are the “good oils” by mixing one of these three with Castor oil helps dissolve the hardened impurities deep within our pores. Lol I laughed because I sound like a commercial but this method is inexpensive and sounds like it will work.

Anywho mix 2/3 of jojoba, sun flower seed or extra virgin olive oil with 1/3 of castor oil

Here are the steps from Stephanie owner and founder of Beauty Bottle

  • You’ll need a soft washcloth, your oil blend, and hot, running water.
  • Pour a generous puddle of oil into the palm of your hand. Roughly, the size of a quarter, but more is acceptable. Rub your hands together to warm the oil and smooth over your face.
  • Begin massaging the oil into your face. This will remove makeup, dirt, and other impurities, so there is no need to use a makeup remover or wash your face prior to the massage. I’ve found that this removes even my stubborn waterproof mascara and concealor.
  • Using slow, firm motions across the skin, massage the oil deeply into your pores. Take your time and focus on your problem areas. You want the oil to work into your pores so that blackheads and the like can be dissolved and steamed away.
  • As you’re massaging, let your mind drift off to something calming and breathe deeply. Take this time to relax and release some of the stress that your body is harboring. Sit down, breathe deeply, and take your time. Give the oil enough time to work on dissolving the impurities in your pores and give yourself enough time to unwind. Picture what your face would look like if it were completely clear and free from blemishes. Focus on that image and know that it is attainable. Trust that it is attainable. Accept that it is attainable. You can have clear skin, free of blemishes and you willhave clear skin, free of blemishes. Focus on perfect skin and breathe deeply.
  • Once you’re satisfied that your pores are saturated and you’re feeling calm, pick up your washcloth and soak it in clean, steamy water. We want the water to be warm enough to open your pores and remove the oil. Cool water will not open your pores, nor will it remove the oil efficiently. We’re not scalding our skin, we’re steaming to coax our pores to release the oil carrying the impurities. We’re essentially steaming our skin as an esthetician would, but without the luxury of a steam machine.
  • Hold the washcloth to cover your face. Allow it to stay until it cools. You will feel your pores releasing the impurities. Wipe the oil gently away and rinse the washcloth well in hot, running water. Hold the washcloth to your face again, allowing it to cool. Wipe gently, rinse well, and repeat two or three more times. Avoid any temptation to scrub, as you’ll find it’s completely unnecessary and your skin will be soft, smooth, and free of flakes without the additional manual exfoliation and irritation that will result. Impurities, dead skin cells, and bacteria will be gently swept away.

I will be trying it for the first time tonight and I am anxious and excited all at the same time! So I hope you all try it with me and I will post my reaction tomorrow! So until next time

Peace & Blessings

D.Wils muah!
