OCM is known as Oil Cleansing Method. It involves two essential oils - extra virgin olive oil (evoo) and caster oil (co). The caster oil is an extremely good cleanser. It will remove dirt and dead skin cells from your pores without stripping the natural oil balance of your skin. Extra virgin olive oil is an awesome moisturizer that is packed of full goodies for your skin, example: antioxidants. Both oils are safe to use especially on acne prone and blemished skin. It is one of the best and most gentle cleanser to use on problem skin.
Things You Will Need
How much oil should i mix together?
For Dry skin, 3 tablespoons of EVOO and 1 tablespoon of CO
For Normal (or unsure), 2 tablespoons of EVOO and 2 tablespoons of CO
For Oily/Combination, 1 tablespoon of EVOO and 3 tablespoons of CO
Step 1You need to start with a dry face, so it's best to do the OCM before you shower. Pour a generous amount of the oil mixture into the palm of your hand. Gently massage it onto your skin (face and neck). Take as long as you like to massage your skin. Imagine that you are getting rid of those clogged dirt and dead cells on your skin.
Steam your face. Fill a bowl with hot water and put your face over it with a towel. Or if you have a facial steamer at home. Another way to steam your face is soak a face towel with hot water, wring it out and place the hot face towel onto your face - at least for a minute or so.
This process opens your pores so the oil can get in there and give you a good cleansing from the inside out.
Gently massage the oils into your face again. This time you don't need to take as long as you did in step 1.
Wet the face towel with warm water again then gently wipe the oil off your face along with the dirt and dead skin cells. Make sure you wipe your face thoroughly to avoid unwanted zits popping on your face.. lolz..
Well.. that's all about OCM. You'll find your skin will become a lot softer and will even glow after a couple of days. Just a reminder: it will not heal your acne overnight but it will make your skin as healthy as it can be, by giving it a chance and doing it the right way + religiously.
Good luck to those who wish to try it... On my personal experience, i love it and it is way cheaper to have a great looking skin.
