OIL CLEANSING METHOD

“The Oil Cleansing Method” is a techniques commonly used in Japan which uses oils such as castor oil to draw out dirt and other impurities from their pores, and extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), which is a brilliant moisturizer, to help heal and nourish the skin. Here’s how it’s done.

For normal skin, combine one part EVOO to one part castor oil in a small bottle and shake. For oily skin, combine three parts castor oil to one part EVOO, and for dry skin. combine one part castor oil and three parts EVOO.

To begin, pour a quarter-sized amount of the combined oils into your palm, rub your hand together, and slowly massage into the face and neck for about a minute.

Next, wet a washcloth with hot water (not scalding), and place it over the face for a few moments until it begins to cool. This will steam out your pores, removing the impurities and dead skin cells. Finally, thoroughly rinse the washcloth out with hot water, wring, then gently wipe off any excess oil. Your skin will feel softer, look brighter, and won’t feel tight or greasy. Olive oil has the same pH as human skin so it is a perfect cleansing balancer.
