Peeling at home cleansers – THE OIL CLEANSING METHOD

THE OIL CLEANSING METHOD: WHAT IS IT?

Or OCM as many call it – have you heard of it?

To many of us, the thought of using oil to cleanse our face will seem very counter active. A lot of us are concerned about oil on our face and take many steps to remove it and reduce its appearance. Let’s face it – a shiny oily face is not attractive.

I came across a 100% oil based cleanser about a year ago and it sits next to my basin ever since. I can’t say I use it every night, but I do use it every time I wash my face with a face washer at night (microfiber – best invention EVA!)  The two in combination leave my skin feeling the smoothest I ever feel it. I also find the next day it to be in fabulous form! I don’t use it in the morning I have to say. I should try it and let you know

If you are a fan of skin peeling like I am, you will find that the type of cleansers you use for the first 8 weeks after a peel is important because your skin is in such amazing soft condition; you will not feel like using you normal harsh option. It juts doesn’t need it. You feel compelled to nourish it. Using oil to cleanse is a great way to do this. I’ve been peeling at home for over 7 years – It was a game changer for my face
Our skin naturally produces oil called sebum. This sebum is exactly what we feel desire to remove – but it’s not always the best idea. When you strip the skin of its natural oils, you are forcing your skip to quickly create much more oil to replace it. Often over compensating and making your oil problem worse.

What oils to use

  • Castor Oil (for most skin types – this is one of the most popular)
  • Virgin Olive Oil (for most skin types – this is one of the most popular)
  • Jojoba (for most skin types, great for acne afflicted skin)
  • Sweet almond (for most skin types, esp oily)
  • Grapeseed (for most skin types, esp oily)
  • Avocado (dry and aging skin)
  • Sunflower Seed (for most skin types)
  • Apricot Kernel (dry and aging skin)
  • Argan (for most skin types – espensive)
  • Tamanu (for most skin types – espensive)

Few examples

Dry Skin: Blend 1 tablespoon castor oil with 3 tablespoons olive oil.
Balanced Skin: Blend 2 tablespoons castor oil with 2 tablespoons olive oil.
Oily Skin: Blend 3 tablespoons castor oil with 1 tablespoon olive oil.

How to use

Step 1: Choose your blend

Step 2: Use a teaspoon size of your oil blend and massage into your face for about 30 seconds to one minute

Step 3: Have your microfiber face washer ready by running it with hot water. Wrung out and ready to use.

Step 4: Take your cloth and uses semi vigorously in an exfoliating fashion to remove the oil. Your skin will amaze you with its softness.

Trust me – take the plunge and give this a try.
