Oil cleansing method


Oil cleansing method

The oil cleansing method, often abbreviated to OCM, is a system for cleaning a human face using oils. The basic method uses a mixture of 80% extra virgin olive oil and 20% castor oil. The mixture can be optimized based on skin type and personal preference. Oily skin can make use of a larger proportion of castor oil. Other oils that are commonly used are sunflower oil, jojoba oil and coconut oil.

In this beauty treatment, the oil is rubbed into skin for approximately two minutes. Next, a warm, damp wash cloth is draped over face until it cools. A cooled wash cloth is then used to wipe off the excess oil with continued rubbing. One or two drops of olive oil or another oil may be used to moisturize the skin after the cleansing oil has been removed from the face.
