I wish I had perfect skin, but I don’t. I tend to be on the oily side which as I’m getting older will work out to my benefit. On the downside I still get breakouts I’m almost 41 years old, and still get the odd pimple. So one day I was looking up the benefits of using Olive Oil on the skin, and imagine my surprise when I discovered The Oil Cleansing Method Wow! Wash my face with oil you’ve got to be kidding me. But after more reading, and I saw how many people swore it didn’t leave their skin an oil slick, and they thought it was good I thought why not. So I bought some castor oil to make my own oil cleanser. That next morning I mixed up a mixture of 50/50 castor oil and olive oil massaged it all over my face, and then went in the shower. At the end of my shower I used a wash cloth, and gently wiped off the oil. I was completely shocked that when I got out of the shower dried off my face, and discovered that not only did it not feel like an oil slick it actually felt like I need more moisture….lol. So I used my moisturizer with sunscreen. However my skin did feel very soft and I noticed fewer blackheads. I did adjust my mixture to add more olive oil so that I get the moisture I felt my skin needed. I’ve been using this method for about two weeks now, and I keep asking Chris if my face feels softer and he says yes.
I find this such a great method in cleaning my face as I can customize my oil mixture just for me. I know EXACTLY what’s in it. I cut down on packaging and waste in that way. More importantly for this Crunchy Diva to do it, it HAS to be simple, and this is VERY simple.
