I've been exclusively using the oil cleansing method for over a year now. My face couldn't be happier and even though I have oily skin, it never appears oily anymore. I use some different things than I used to the last time I talked about it.
I now use sweet almond oil on my face. It's a light and smooth oil and leaves my skin even softer and smoother than grapeseed oil. SAO also gives my skin mega glow; it even glows under those awful flourescent lights that usually make people look like "death becomes her". I luv it!
To cleanse my face, I went back to black soap and it is doin wonders on my face like it has in the past. I like Shea Moisture's brand best.
HOW I DO IT:
- Massage a little SAO onto my face for 30 seconds to one minute
- Wet face and cleanse with black soap using my exfoliating sponge (this is great at helping slough off the dead skin cells on the surface of the face and much gentler than using a buff puff/exfoliating pad) and pat dry
- Apply homemade toner mix (1 part ACV, 3 parts Water, quick squirt of honey) to face with a cotton ball
- Add a couple drops of SAO to hand/s and gently massage into skin
Note. This is how I do the OCM; this is not law. Everyone's regimen will vary. Some people use a toner, some don't. Some people use soap and some don't; they only use the oil. I'm sharing what I do as a guideline to give you an idea of how you can take the method and tailor it to fit your skin's needs and preferences.
