Re: Oil Cleansing Method

|I am glad someone makde a post on this since I have been so interested in trying this, but have no idea where to begin! I have read up online about the various oils, etc, but I feel overwhelmed. I went and bought castor oil, almond oil, and jojoba oil, and have no idea how I know what the proper mix is for my skin. I know the almond oil is great for taking off eye makeup, but other than that....I am confused!
I have pretty dry skin, but prone to break outs on my chin due to some medical issues. So not sure what would be best. Can anyone help? Thanks!
Hi - I think the recommended 'standard' ratio is 50:50. But you can alter the ratio and add more olive oil for dryer skins, or more castor oil for oilier skins, or skins that need deeper cleansing of pores etc.
I also add essential oils, since the method includes a steaming of the face, its a good time way to get EO to penetrate. I was using patchouli and lavender, and am now trying rose and neroli - it smeels divine!
