    I want to try the oil method, but I’m allergic to castor oil, is there any other oil I could substitute that can be just as helpful?

  2. Madison

    Should I use this instead of a face wash, or both? I was going to try your natural face washes but if isn’t necessary to use a face wash with the oil treatment then I don’t want to.

    Basically, is this a subsitute for a proper face wash, or do I need to wash my face aswell?

  36. […] Using an oil to cleanse your face may seem to be an absolutely too ridiculous thing to consider. Going by the adage that “like attracts like” will help to understand how using oils to remove dirt, makeup and debris will help this to make sense. Your skin naturally produce oils. These oils work to keep your skin’s pH balance intact. When you use a cleanser that contains harsh agents, you are stripping away the essential oils that your skin produces. Oils such as castor oil and jojoba oil work with your skin. They have natural cleansing properties that actually draw out dirt and debris, and remove makeup effectively without leaving your skin feeling and looking stripped and dry. If you have ever wondered why your face feels so tight and dry, and appears ashy after using a commercial cleanser, it is because the harsh ingredients work against your skin’s ability to produce its natural oils. Using castor oil or jojoba oil on their own is an excellent way to cleanse your face. You simply apply the castor oil to your face and let it sit for 3 to 5 minutes. With a very warm washcloth (not so hot that it is uncomfortable) gently wipe the oil from your face. It is very effective at removing eye makeup as well. If you want, you could add olive oil to the castor oil for a bit of extra moisture, but that is optional. This same technique applies if you want to use jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is most like the oil that your skin naturally produces so you will really see the benefit of using it. You will be surprised at how smooth your face looks and feels, as well as being rewarded with seeing those fine lines and wrinkles lessen over time.

  38. […] Oils and oil cleansing are a whole different story for another fine day, but I try to always have these two on hand for those “just in case” moments.  Oils are a great way of cleaning your face while still leaving it moisturized.  You can, of course, mix and match a few different types for your skin’s specific needs. There are so many resources, in addition to trial and error. […]
