It sounds hard to believe but‘Oil can be used as a skin cleanser’ but it is true. It works for normal to dry to oily to acne prone skin as well as help’s rejuvenate pre – to – post aging skin. Here is how you go about it, this is a popular method known as OCM (Oil Cleansing Method). Oil removes dirt from within the pores and most importantly removes oil naturally from the face restoring the natural oil.
These oils are easily available in market, extra virgin olive oil and castor oil. We can also go with jojoba oil, grapeseed oil and flaxseed oil, since these are not easily available in our Indian market we will go with extra virgin olive oil and castor oil. To go ahead with OCM follow the steps below:
STEP 1: Create the mixture
Take a squeeze bottle and mix both the oils together, this has to be done according to the following ratio depending on your skin type.
• For normal skin go with 1:1 ratio, which is equal quantity of both extra virgin olive oil and castor oil.
• For dry skin go with 3 parts of extra virgin olive oil and 1 part of castor oil.
• For oily and acne prone skin go with 1 part of extra virgin olive oil and 3 parts of castor oil.
STEP 2: Massage
Squeeze out a pea size amount from your squeeze bottle and massage it on your face. Make sure your strokes are not vigorous. Circular motion on cheeks, upward strokes on forehead and crisscross motion for nose to chin area.
STEP 3: Steam
STEP 4: Wipe off
Wash the cloth, wring it and wipe your face with the same cloth and see the difference.:)
