So this one was a little far-fetched for me at first, but then I started further research and eventually just tried it!
I have tried almost every product on the market…Over the counter products like Proactive, Clean & Clear, and Neutrogena and prescription products like Retin A, Tetracycline, and even Accutane. None of these products worked permanently. Accutane only cleared up my skin while I was on it and little while after. I have tried mild and harsh products, expensive and inexpensive, but nothing had a lasting effect. Here I am, in my twenties and still struggling with acne! Yuck!
About a year ago, I was given a gift certificate for a facial and the results were eye-opening. It was not the facial itself that made a differnce (all though it was wonderful), it was more what the esthetician said about my skin. She mentioned that my skin seemed dry because of the way it soaked up the moisturizers. I had never thought of my skin as DRY! If anything I thought it was greasy!
Nonetheless, this inspired me to start moisturizing more (especially at night). I saw great results with just this step, but I was still experiencing breakouts. So, when I read about this Oil Cleansing method, I thought “It’s worth a shot! I will give it 2 weeks!” And to my amazement, my skin was clear! Horray!
*Sorry for the grotesque close-up!
I still experience the occasional hormonal breakout (to be expected), but nothing nearly like I was before. As long as I am consistent with this method (using once daily), my skins stays clear.
Heres is what you need:
- Sunflower Seed or Olive Oil
- Castor Oil
- Soft Washcloth
- Hot Water
How you do it:
First, figure out what skin-type you have and mix your oils accordingly. Use a container that is easy to dispense from, preferably something that pours or pumps.
- Oily Skin: Try a blend of 30% Castor Oil to 70% Sunflower Seed or Olive Oil
- Balanced Skin: Try a blend of 20% Castor Oil to 80% Sunflower Seed or Olive Oil.
- Dry Skin: Try a blend of 10% Castor Oil to 90% Sunflower Seed or Olive Oil
- Take about a quarter-sized amount of mixed oil in your hand and apply liberally all over your face. With little pressure massage the oil into your pores, focusing on problem areas.
- Wet your washcloth with hot water. Cover your face with the washcloth and allow it to stay until it cools.
- 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.
- Enjoy soft, supple skin!
