The Oil Cleansing Method And It’s Benefits For Your Skin

oilsIt’s no secret I have always had problematic skin. Teenage acne made its way into adult acne and let’s not forget the monthly hormonal acne.

With that being said, I’ve tried just about every cleansing product on the market (including Proactiv Solution) to try to keep my face acne free and flawless. Everything has failed.

Once I had gone natural with my hair, I started embracing more natural ways of living in general and stumbled upon the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM) as a way to cleanse your face. I was instantly intrigued.

I tried the OCM two years ago but with not much success but after hearing even more positive things about it everywhere I decided to give it one more try. It was truly a great decision.

The Oil Cleansing Method

The Oil Cleansing Method (OCM) is cleansing your face with oils or a mixture of oils. Like dissolves like. That just means you are using clean oils to remove the dirty oils from your face.

The skincare industry has taught us that oil is bad but that isn’t strictly true. Our bodies and faces need oil and all those over the counter and prescription cleansers are stripping too much oil from of our skin which we then we have to replace it with moisturizers.


The Mechanics Behind The Method

Oil and water don’t mix but oil can dissolve other oils. It may sound like it is doing just the opposite but, I promise, you don’t end up with an oily mess. The dirty oils will be removed by the hot/warm washcloth, which warms the oils and removes them.

This method is keeps you from using harsh chemicals found in many cleansing agents. Many of these cleansing agents strip your skin of the oils you need to keep it supple. This OCM removes dirt, makeup and impurities without stripping the necessary oils from your face.
