Oil Cleansing Method for a Glowing Skin || Helth and Beauty Tips tipsbugs


Oil Cleansing Method commonly known as OCM is gaining popularity for its wonderful benefits for skin(all types of skin). Skin Care Industry has always advised people with oily skin to go for Oil Free Products but the fact is right type of Oil can do wonders for your skin, be it Dry skin, Mature Skin or Oily/Acne Prone Skin Oil is good for skin.

What Is Oil Cleansing Method And What Are The Benefits?

Oil Cleansing Method is based on a theory" Oil dissolves oil". This method helps dissolve oils and draw toxins and impurities from within the skin. People are scared of using oils on their face thinking that Oil causes acne, which is completely untrue. Acne is caused by Hormonal Imbalances, Improper Cleansing, Dirt, Dust and Bacteria. In fact, this method is very beneficial for Oily and Acne Prone Skin. But you have to be careful while selecting the Oils that suit your skin. It might take some time to get used to OCM because finding a right oil and right proportion needs a bit of experiment but it surely does work.

Your skin will Glow and become Soft and Smooth. Doing this regularly can give you Clear and Radiant Skin.

How Is It Done?


You will need:

1. Steamy Water

2. Oil Blend according to your skin type

3. Washcloth

Take some Oil(according to your skin type) on your palm and rub your hands so that the Oil warms up a bit and apply it on your face .Massage for about 5 minutes so that it dissolves blackheads and other impurities. Now dip the washcloth into the Steamy water because warm water opens up pores and let the impurities and toxins come out. Now place this cloth over your face(don't burn your face, make sure its not too hot) and let it sit until it cools. Gently wipe your face with this cloth and repeat the same process 2-3 times. Be very gentle to your skin, don't rub or scrub. Your skin will not feel oily because the steamy washcloth would have removed it, in fact your skin might feel a little dry. If it feels dry you can apply a bit of Jojoba Oil or Olive Oil(For Dry Skin). No need to rinse.

Which Oil Should You Use?

Select your oil according to your skin type and experiment with the proportion. Since my skin is Normal to Dry, I use Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Evening Primrose Oil and Castor Oil(80% Olive Oil or Evening Primrose Oil and 20% Castor Oil). OCM has helped me get Fresh and Dewy Skin.

Normal Skin- Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Jojoba Oil

Dry and Dehydrated Skin
- Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Castor Oil

Oily and Acne Prone Skin- Jojoba, Evening Primrose Oil, Grapeseed Oil and Watermelon Seed Oil.

Sensitive Skin- Apricot Kernel Oil, Jojoba Oil, Seabuckthorn Oil

Proportion really depends on each individual so try experimenting 50/50 and see if it works otherwise change it to 75/25 or 60/40, whatever suits your skin.

If you have Super Sensitive skin don't put hot washcloth over your face, make sure your skin can tolerate the heat otherwise your skin can become red.
