Oil Cleansing Method is a way to cleanse your face. Lately it has become very popular because it is very gentle and effective at the same time. It can be used both as a makeup remover (great!!) and as a detergent. It helps to cleanse the skin and combat pimples and black heads.
This method is based on the idea that water removes the water (and other hydrophilic substances) and fat removes fatty substances (lipophilic): the oil imprisons the fat in your pores and allows you to remove it - unlike many cleaners on the market which rub off the fat from your skin stimulating it to create another layer of " fat protection".
What you need:
Olive oil (or sunflower or coconut)
A small towel
How to do it:
1) Mix castor oil and olive oil in a container and shake the two oils. Olive oil is rich in vitamin E and has a nourishing, firming and anti-aging effects. Castor oil removes impurities and strengthens the lashes. It is advisable to adjust the amount of oil according to your skin type:
Oily Skin: 2/3 castor oil + 1/3 olive oil
Normal skin: 1/2 castor oil + 1/2 olive oil
Dry skin: 1/3 castor oil + 2/3 olive oil
2) Gently massage your face with the cleanser for at least one minute.
3) Once you have soaked and wrung the towel with hot water, place it on your face. The heat opens the pores, the oil penetrates and purifies the skin.
4) Rinse your face with water.
It's a great makeup remover: powerful and delicate at the same time! Miraculous for blemished skin! If you try it, then let me know how it works on you!
