How To Cleanse Your Face Naturally With Oil

   

     Recipe

  • 1 part castor oil + 1 part olive oil + 1 part grape seed oil
  • A few drops of essential oil, optional (lavender or tea tree are my fav)
  • Add oils to a squeeze bottle and swirl to combine.

 

     Technique

  • Pour a quarter-sized amount of oil mixture into your palm.
  •  Vigorously rub the oil between your palms to warm it up. Gently apply the oil to your face in a circular motion. Massage it into your skin, but don’t rub too hard. Continue to massage the oil into your skin for 30-60 seconds.
  • Turn on the tap to very hot water (as hot as you can stand, but not scalding!). Saturate a wash cloth, wring it out, then lay it across your face to steam your pores open. Leave it on until it cools back down to room temperature.
  • Massage your now steamed, oily skin again for another 5-10 seconds to work out any impurities from your pores.
  • Rinse the wash cloth, wring it out, and lay it on your face a second time.
  • Once it cools down, rinse it again, then gently wipe your face clean, removing all the dirt and impurities from your skin and pores. Rinse the wash cloth and wipe your face again until there’s no more oil left on your skin (about 1 or 2 more times).
  •  Your skin will look and feel better right from the first time! Your face will be brighter, dewey-looking, and very soft. If needed, you may moisturize with a tiny bit of one of your carrier oils (in my case, either olive or grape seed), but most likely, you won’t need to. Coconut oil is also another great moisturizer – just a tiny bit goes a long way.
