The Oil Cleansing Method For Beautiful Skin

The oil cleansing method is what it sounds like - you wash your face with oil.

Cleansing your face with oil is a natural way to dislodge impurities from the skin pores, and leave your skin clear, dewy and soft. Oil protects, heals and nourishes your skin. The oil cleansing method can be used on oily, aging, dry, sensitive and acne-prone skin. No matter what your skin type is, the oil cleansing method leaves skin healthy and moisturized.

All that’s required is the right oil(s), a soft washcloth, and hot running water.

Don’t panic at the thought of rubbing oil into your skin. The oil itself will not cause blemishes. It will effectively soften and dissolve the waxy oil that is clogging the skin along with the trapped bacteria, dirt and dead cells which are causing the problems. Pimples, cysts, zits, blackheads, whiteheads are a result of several different factors including hormones, bacteria, dead skin cells and the buildup of these factors. Your skin naturally produces oil because it needs it. It is not a malicious force to be reckoned with; it is there for the benefit of your skin, allowing your largest organ to function properly. Not only does your natural oil help lubricate, it also heals, protects, and moisturizes your skin so that it may function properly. Properly functioning skin is beautiful, clear, and glowing. Learn to work with your skin, not against it.

Most people use soap and chemical cleansers in order to wash the oils from their skin, but these remove too much of the beneficial oils and leaves skin dry, unprotected and vulnerable to environmental attack. A preferable technique is to use the Oil Cleansing Method to remove excess oils and wax from your skin without stripping your body’s protective oils completely.

Oils to Use in Your Cleansing Facial Oil Blend

Natural oils you can use to make your own Cleansing Facial Oil include Sweet Almond, Jojoba, Extra Virgin Olive, Grapeseed, Apricot or any other good quality, pure oils mixed to your personal preference. Experiment and find the one that works best for your skin.

Castor oil is sometimes suggested for OCM regimens, but as it is purgative and mildly irritating to tissues, try keeping the Castor Oil at 1-10% or less of the total mixture. At this low level the properties will serve to stimulate circulation at the surface of your skin for a beneficial effect. If you notice any irritation after OCM, cut back or cut out the Castor Oil. If you have rosacea, a skin condition causing redness and broken capillaries, Castor Oil is not recommended
Additional healing ingredients you can include with positive results are:
  • Tamanu Oil (very beneficial)
  • Shea Oil
  • Evening Primrose Oil (helps severely dry & damaged skin, eczema, inflammation)
  • Rosehip Seed Oil
  • Kukui Oil
  • Perilla Seed Oil (strong smell)
  • St. John’s Wort Oil
  • Hazelnut Oil
  • Camellia Oil (useful for eczema, psoriasis)
  • Babassu Oil
  • Hemp Seed Oil
  • Avocado Oil (very good for dry& aging skin)
  • Macadamia Oil
  • Argan Oil
  • Flax Seed Oil (use for eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, acne & aging skin)
  • Meadowfoam Oil (especially good for aging skin)
  • Oil of Calendula flowers
  • Oil of Chamomile flowers
  • Oil of Comfrey
  • Vitamins A & D & E
In small amounts some pure Essential Oils (not fragrance oils) can be added to your blend as an enhancement:
  • Carrot Seed –for aging skin & wrinkles
  • Palo Santo –highly regarded oil from Equador
  • Helichrysum –highly prized for all facial skin aplications
  • Tea Tree –use sparingly, antiseptic, antibacterial
  • Rose
  • Lavender
  • Clary Sage
The Oil Cleansing Method Routine

Apply a generous coating of oil to your face, gently massaging it into the skin.

Apply the oil directly over any visible dirt or makeup and massage it well into your skin. Take a little time to work the oil deep into your skin, massaging and relaxing the muscles under your skin as you go. Work slowly and gently, breathe deep, relax and enjoy this deep self-care treatment.
After the oil has been worked well into skin and pores, and have been deeply absorbed, drape a steamy, wet towel over your face. Wring the cloth out before applying to produce a comforting, moisturizing steam bath for your face. This process will help to open pores and allow them to release any trapped dirt or impurities, as well as soothing your facial muscles and nerves. 

As the wash cloth cools, use it to gently wipe away the remaining oil from your face, together with the dirt, makeup, stubborn dead skin cells, toxins and whatever other impurities have collected on your skin. Rinse the cloth out a time or two and use to gently wipe your face two or three times to completely clear your skin of any residue. The dirt and impurities will come off and leave your skin clean, healthy and glowing. No soap or other cleansers are needed.

After rinsing well, gently splash cool water over your face to close the pores. The oil itself will work fine for a moisturizer. Simply take a few drops of the oil and massage right into your newly cleansed skin. Keep working gently until all the oil is absorbed (or pat it off with a warm, moist towel). 

You’re finished. Your skin should have a vibrant glow and be clean and healthy without having lost its natural healing oils.
