Oil Method for Cleansing Skin

So I've been reading up on the oil method to cleanse your skin, primarily the use of oil to cleanse the face and to keep your skin youthful and glowing naturally without the use of chemicals. I'm just starting out on the journey but is it really the best option? Well... I'm going to try it for 60 days and let you all know my results. I'm prone to acne and supposedly the use of natural oils will not irritate my skin and should actually clear any acne. 

The basic concept of this skin care and cleansing method is that the oil used to massage your skin will dissolve the oil that has hardened with impurities and found itself stuck in your pores. If using the oil method, you'll need to combine with steam to as the steam will open your pores, allowing the oil to be easily removed. 

This method combines two essential oils castor oil and extra virgin olive oil or sunflower oil. Castor Oil has potent anti-inflammatory properties, but is also healing and cleansing, which is why we're focusing on this oil as our primary oil. I know what you're thinking... castor oil is super thick so why would I use that on my face? Well it's thick therefore it needs to be diluted but castor oil has potent anti-inflammatory properties as well as it's cleansing and healing properties and it's phenomenal for dry skin. When using soap to cleanse the face, it's detergent causes dryness and strips the skin of it's natural oils which can be depleting causing premature aging. I've heard that using oils to cleanse your face, really slows the aging process down dramatically and the bonus is that it's natural! It's also great at removing make-up so if you're a make-up diva, then this is for you.
Choose vegetable oils for facial massage

What you'll need:
I suggest getting a small jar and mixing 1/3 castor oil and 2/3 EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil). 

when you're ready, you'll need about a nickle sized amount and massage this into your DRY face and neck ensure that you're massaging it and not rubbing too hard. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes or get into the shower as normal and leave your face for last. This will allow the steam from your shower to activate the pores for more absorption.  Once done with shower, gently wipe oil off with damp wash rag. It's that simple.
