Well, I thought it would take little more than half a week to convince me, but it didn't. Three days into trying the OCM I have already received complements on my skin, (Hoorah!) so, I thought I would share the wealth!
If you haven't heard about it, the oil cleansing method is a way to clean your face using oil! YIKES! I know. I felt my face turning into a pizza when I first read about it. However, because I couldn't get past the truth of the basic scientific principal that "oil dissolves oil" I knew I had to give it a try.
Quick skin history, because I know you are all so very interested....
Over the past couple of years my skin has been fairly easy to care for. I think that's because I stuck with ONE product and I nailed down a system. I washed my face with Cetaphil and applied Cetaphil moisturizer. I learned that this "milky" textured cleanser washed off of my skin better which prevented clogged pores. My skin was also very dry and if I didn't apply moisturizer almost immediately it would start to get tight and flaky. If I ever got a blemish I used a spot on treatment.
I knew that these regular soaps and cleansers were stripping my skin of it's natural oils, as well as leaving behind a film of soap scum and chemicals and other junk. To combat the problem I applied a lotion, which usually left my skin feeling bogged down.
Our skin secretes oil to keep it soft and hydrated and to unclog any impurities from our pores, keeping our skin clean and blemish free.
OK, so I made a mixture of three parts olive oil (3t.)and one part castor oil (1t.)with a few drops of tea tree oil (2 drops) to fight any bacteria.
In the morning I splash my face with water and apply this witch hazel toner, which I LOVE.
My skin looks more tone and blemish free!! It also feels amazing and I haven't had to used moisturizer once, which is a miracle!! Give it a try! For more information about the OCM you can click here.
